Upcoming TeraCopy 3 features

A new version of TeraCopy is currently being rewritten from scratch. The goal is to make it faster and more extensible. Planned features include:

  • Unlimited number of files, keep file list on disk instead of memory.
  • Immediate start of copying instead of waiting for calculation of total files size.
  • Verify copied files with MD5/SHA-1 instead of CRC32, option to create .md5/.sha file list.
  • Show file list as browsable folders, show only failed files.
  • One window for multiple file transfer operations.
  • “Save bandwidth” mode

TeraCopy 3 beta is expected to be released early next year.

Update from December 7:

The new copy engine is ready and shows a good speed with both large and small files. Testing was done with a single 8 Gb file and 9 000 small files (300kb in size). In both cases speed was on a par or slightly faster than in Windows copy. MD5 hash calculation was on during the large file copy. Small files copying speed improved a lot after disabling Windows Defender.

Update from December 12:

TeraCopy now can avoid UAC prompts while reading files usually requiring elevation. This will eliminate possible ‘access denied’ errors in a middle of the copy process. For security reasons this feature will be available only to non-elevated administrators, users with a ‘standard account’ will still be required to start TeraCopy with admin privileges.

Update from December 17:

Copying using Volume Shadow Service is ready. Used usually in backup applications, it allows you to copy files locked by other applications.

SpeedView 3.1

SpeedView - Hybrid speedo layout

  • New hybrid speedo layout
  • Added option to invert indicator colors
  • Keep running when the screen is locked
  • Minor bug fixes and improvements

This update includes a new speedometer layout that we call Hybrid. It’s an updated version of the initial speedo layout that features an analog-like dial with big speed numbers in the center. We are keeping the Legacy layout in case you would still want to use it.

Note: To clarify the situation with the Free version, we would like to stress that it’s not “canceled”, as some reviews seem to say. It’s fully functional, and you can use it for as long as you like. However, we decided to focus on the Pro version in the future. Here are the advantages that the paid version has over SpeedView Free:

  1. The absence of ads
  2. Street address bar with some additional info
  3. Premium support – you will get an answer within a day

InDrive 1.2

  • Run in the background
  • Enable track logging
  • Min distance between points
  • Min time between points
  • Disable Poweramp integration
  • Mute notification sounds
  • Vibrate on press
  • Quickly view album info
  • The app now remembers the last used screen

Note: If you are experiencing the issue with the app randomly closing without any errors, try disabling integration with Poweramp in the app settings. This is a confirmed problem in Poweramp that unfortunately affects InDrive when integration is enabled. It should be fixed in the next Poweramp update.

InDrive 1.1

  • Minimum accuracy
  • Filter the GPS speed
  • Clear individual data
  • Hide the action bar
  • Two more shortcut pages
  • Better screen space usage
  • Improved Poweramp integration
  • Fixed: Force close when direct calling

Note for Android 4.2.x users: Unfortunately, it appears that Google has removed dock home support in Android 4.2. Pressing the Home button will now return you to the launcher screen instead of InDrive or other car home app of choice. If you would like this feature back, please vote for this issue.

InDrive: Custom Car Home 1.0

We are pleased to announce the launch of a new Android application that may appeal to everyone who uses their phone while driving.

InDrive is a unique application that combines superior car home functionality with an advanced trip computer and deep Poweramp integration. The app makes it very easy to launch your favorite applications, direct dial numbers, view your trip information, and control music playback*. It will auto launch when placed in a compatible car dock. If you don’t have a physical car dock, InDrive provides an option to force the phone into car mode, in which it will override the Home button.

   

* The music screen is designed to work in conjunction with Poweramp. Without Poweramp installed, you will only be able to do very basic controls such as switching to the next song in the default Android music player. Support for other media players is not guaranteed.

Please download the app from Google Play and tell us what you think. Your feedback is much appreciated.

1. Swipe lock screen to the left until you see a big [+] icon.
2. Tap on the icon and select ‘Neat Calendar’.
3. Tap and hold on the widget and move it to the left of the camera screen.

To add to the home screen:

1. Open widgets list in the app drawer.
2. Tap and hold to place the widget on the desktop.

Maverick Pro 2.2

Trackback function will guide you along a previously recorded track with compass pointing to a nearest point. A new track can be recorded at the same time. Tap on the track info tip to start/stop trackback, change direction or set a nearest point.

Track sharing menu was expanded and now contains:

  • Sending file (Email, Dropbox, GDrive..).
  • Viewing GPX track in other apps (like My Tracks).
  • Playing GPX track in Google Earth.
  • Upload to GPSies.

soundmaven.com

After a year and a half in development we are finally ready to launch the brand new version of soundmaven.com! Please have a look at some pre-aggregated pages:

The site can work a bit slow when it aggregates a page for the first time due to it accessing quite a few APIs. To address this problem, we have cached 1000 most popular artists according to Last.fm and all of their albums.

If you like the site, you can help a lot by spreading the word about it through Facebook, Twitter, or your own blog. We also appreciate any thoughts and opinions you may have, so feel free to post them on the site’s  Feedback page. Thanks!
