ChronoAgent 1.5 — Econ Technologies has released ChronoAgent 1.5, the synchronization and backup utility that works with Econ’s ChronoSync app to provide direct connectivity to a remote Mac.

Additionally, icons and supplemental artwork have been optimized for Retina displays, Notification Center support has
been added, and you can limit ChronoAgent’s access to files by approving only specific volumes.
