Updates are coming

If you’re wondering when Mémoires and Video Mémoires are going to be updated to run natively on Apple Silicon, we have good news: we are working on modernizing the apps with a new user interface design, new icons, great new features, and of course, full support for Apple Silicon. Meanwhile, the current versions of our apps work perfectly on the M1 Macs with Rosetta, so you can continue using them even if you have an Apple chip inside your computer.

We don’t share release dates, but you can follow us on Twitter — @codingrobots — to get updates on our progress. Thank you for your support, and we can’t wait to show you what’s coming!

Security update: Video Mémoires 1.1

We have released an important security update for our video diary software for Mac, Video Mémoires 1.1.

This update replaces insecure connections to our servers when checking for update with encrypted secure HTTPS connections, addressing recently disclosed vulnerabilities related to the use of Sparkle framework with insecure connections.

Mac App store version of Video Mémoires is not affected, as it doesn’t use Sparkle framework.

How to upgrade

This update is free for all users of Video Mémoires. You will be asked to upgrade the next time the program checks for updates, however we recommend updating manually by downloading the latest version from our website: https://www.codingrobots.com/videomemoires/

If you purchased Video Mémoires from Mac App Store, you don’t have to do anything.


Note about Mémoires

Mémoires has been switched to secure updating since version 4.5 (released in 2014), so it is not vulnerable. If you use earlier unsupported version, please upgrade to the latest one as soon as possible.

Mémoires 4.5.1 released

We have released an update for our diary software for Mac, Mémoires 4.5.1.

What’s New

  • Added exact searches (surround your whole search query with quote marks to search for the exact phrase). Previous version introduced improved search by splitting quieries into words. Some users wanted the exact search back, so in this release we introduced it back: for example, to search for why me, but not for why not me, type “why me”, including quotes.

  • Fixed black sidebar background in Yosemite if “Reduce transparency” accessibility setting was on.
