Beyond Compare does list “Synchronize Folders” as one of its features.

Dan Moren did a nice write-up about Beyond Compare earlier this year:

I’ve had it on my wishlist for awhile now, so I’ll definitely be getting a copy.

The latest BundleHunt is out ($1 unlock fee):

Screens is $3. Any other apps that folks would recommend?

I like PDF Squeezer, simple and does a great job.

I advise against Squash (never worked for me, prefer Aerate) and X-Mirage (32-bit on my install).

Confirmed. Squash was less than impressive.

Thought DriveDX would help me with some problematic drives but it was essentially useless. I don’t regret it yet but it’s not for fixing things.

I got PhotoSweeper …I tend to create a lot photo dupes (better safe than sorry my adage) so hopefully it’ll help me reign things in a bit.

Grabbed Pulltube even though I have SYC2 and primarily use Downie

Grabbed Metaimage because I plan to grab a mirrorless and start shooting better quality photos. I want to make sure my EXIF data and other stuff is solid.

Nice, just be aware this is the Lite version (Ableton comes in three flavors). It can however be upgraded to the “bigger” versions so it’s a good entry point. :slight_smile:

Alloy, a “launcher and automator” app, is currently free on the i(Pad)OS App Store. I don’t know anything about it but it looks interesting…

Target is offering a $20 Target gift card with $100 Apple gift card purchase

From that link
“Apple Gift Card - App Store, iTunes, iPhone, iPad, Airpods, Macbook, and accessories (Email Delivery)”
" * For all things Apple—products, accessories, apps, games, music, movies, TV shows, iCloud, and more."
" * Total Card purchase cannot exceed $500."

I am not certain of all the restrictions (including how long the offer is good for, if it’s valid outside the US, whether there might be excluded items, etc.) but it looks like these can be used to buy hardware too.
