Mémoires and Video Mémoires are compatible with macOS Mojave

We are happy to report that the current version of Mémoires (4.5.1) and Video Mémoires (2.1.0) are compatible with macOS 10.14 Mojave.

When recording video for the first time, Video Mémoires will now ask for permission to access your web camera and microphone. This is a nice new macOS feature that enhances security.

We are working on bringing dark mode into both our apps in the nearest feature.


Our apps are compatible with macOS High Sierra

We are happy to report that Apple didn’t break much in macOS High Sierra, so Mémoires is fully compatible with it!

The little thing that they did break — which prevented Video Mémoires from displaying video from camera while recording — has been fixed in the newly released Video Mémoires 2.1.0.

Hooray!

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.

How to upgrade

This update is free for all users of Mémoires 4. You will be asked to upgrade the next time the program checks for updates, or you can do it manually from the program by clicking Mémoires → Check for Updates… in the top menu.

If you don’t have Mémoires installed, please download the program from its product page: http://www.codingrobots.com/memoires/

Video: How to start writing a journal on your Mac with Mémoires

We have posted a new short video on our YouTube channel, which shows how to get started writing a journal with Mémoires.

Please share this video with your friends who don’t keep a journal yet, who are thinking about starting one, or who are using inconvenient tools for writing it.


Mémoires 4.5 released

We have released a new version of our diary software for Mac, Mémoires 4.5.

What’s New

  • New look optimized for OS X 10.10 Yosemite. It’s less cluttered and looks great in the new OS X, as well as in the previous versions of Apple’s operating system. (Also, the app now has a new icon!)

  • Improved search. The program now splits queries into words before searching, so it’s now possible to find an entry containing “awesome vegan lunch” by looking for “awesome lunch”, while previous versions required entering the exact phrase.

  • Updates via HTTPS. While automatic updates were already secure by relying on digital signatures, in this version, in addition to signatures, we turned on Transport Layer Security for improved confidentiality.

  • We fixed bugs, such as editor losing focus during saving, slow typing with a lot of text or images, and many other smaller issues.

How to upgrade

This update is free for all users of Mémoires 4.0. You will be asked to upgrade the next time the program checks for updates, or you can do it manually from the program by clicking Mémoires → Check for Updates… in the top menu.

If you don’t have Mémoires installed, please download the program from its product page: http://www.codingrobots.com/memoires/

Introducing Journalite

We are happy to announce the first beta release of our new product – Journalite! It’s a fresh approach to diary/journaling software on Windows.

When we first released Mémoires, our Mac diary app, back in 2007, we received a lot of requests from Windows users, who liked its simplicity and elegant interface, to make similar program for PC. We still receive such requests in 2014, and now we have the answer!

Screenshot

Journalite is a new app written from scratch using the cutting-edge technologies. Our experience in making diary software led us to re-think a lot of details, and we think we have the easiest to use and very powerful application for writing journals on Windows. (Even though some features we’d like to have are missing, they’ll be added soon).

But it’s just the beginning! We’re releasing the first early beta version today so that you can start writing your diary right now and give us feedback.

Update: we decided to discontinue Journalite. It is no longer available.
