The Future of Deliveries Deliveries began as a hobby—it was first released as a Dashboard widget named “Apple…
An update on our apps
It’s been a while since we shared an update on everything we’re working on. With iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 available today, this seemed like a good time. Of course macOS Monterey is just around the corner as well.
We recently released Deliveries 9.2. This isn’t our “iOS 15 update” but it supports all current devices, and it works great on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. It even supports some new features: for example you can now drag a message from Mail and drop it into Deliveries on iOS 15, and Deliveries will automatically detect tracking numbers in the message. You can also drop a delivery into Quick Notes on iPad (though we’ll make this even better in the future). We also added the ability to scan text using our barcode scanner. That doesn’t require iOS 15, but it feels right at home with the new text recognition features Apple has added to the camera.
We are working on an update that will support more new features in iOS 15, iPadOS 15, watchOS 8, and macOS Monterey. We’ll share more details on that when we’re ready. We are also working on a bug fix to address problems some people have had updating the app, though you can fix the problem in a few steps if necessary.
Notefile is long overdue for an update, and many of you have understandably assumed it was abandoned. We still use Notefile every day, and we know many of you do too. Notefile and Deliveries share many components behind the scenes, so while we were working on Deliveries 9, we were effectively working on a big update for Notefile as well. The app is currently undergoing a complete interface overhaul, and we should have more information to share soon.
Just to be clear about expectations, Notefile will remain a simple and focused note taking app. We believe simplicity is its strength. Our current focus is on updating the app to work better with the latest devices and give it a fresh look. We’re not planning on adding any major new features at this time.
Junecloud Toolbox will be updated soon with support for Apple Silicon, a new icon that matches the current macOS style, and some other minor improvements. We recently updated the Junecloud Toolbox help page with information about installing it on macOS 10.14 or later.
Update: Junecloud Toolbox 4.1 is now available, with support for macOS Monterey and Apple Silicon.
Our other software
By now most of you have noticed that our Dashboard widgets are no longer supported. Apple phased out Dashboard over a long period of time before removing it entirely in macOS Catalina. If you’re still using our Delivery Status or Notefile widgets, we recommend trying the full app versions, available on the Mac App Store.
Chicago Avenue Moon will no longer receive any updates, but it is still available free of charge for those that would like to try it.
