Studiometry and Accounted on macOS 10.15 Catalina

The newest version of macOS was released today and with it comes some new requirements for apps. First and foremost, it will ONLY run apps that are 64-bit. This means older, 32-bit apps will not run on Catalina.

The next requirement is called Notarization. This is a method that Apple is using that will hopefully help make Macs more secure and prevent viruses or malware. It basically means that each app is cleared by Apple before you download it, and then each time you launch it Apple will clear it again. Due to the amount of work necessary for developers to comply with Apple’s notarization process, the requirement for Notarization doesn’t go into effect until January 2020.

So the big question, do Studiometry and Accounted work in macOS Catalina? The answer is yes, as long as you have a semi recent version of each.

 

Studiometry

Yes, fully Catalina compatible (version 14.0 and newer)

Studiometry 14.0 (released 2017) and newer are 100% Catalina compatible. As long as you have Studiometry 14, Studiometry 15, or a Studiometry Cloud account (which gives you access to the current version of Studiometry), you’re good to go.

If you’re on Studiometry 13 or older, you will have to upgrade to a recent version of Studiometry, or sign up for Studiometry Cloud to gain access to current versions. We have discounted upgrades available for users of older versions, so please open a support ticket with your current registration information so we can let you know your upgrade options.

 

Studiometry Express

Not yet Catalina compatible, expected early 2020.

Currently Studiometry Express has not been updated in some time due to Mac App Store restrictions. Because of this, it is not 64-bit and will not run on Catalina. We hope to update Studiometry Express to include 64-bit capabilities as well as many of the other features recently included in the non-App-Store version of the app, but as of right now we don’t have an estimated date of completion for this. If you’re using Studiometry Express, we have upgrade options available to move from Express to the full version of Studiometry. Please open a support ticket and we can send over details.

 

Accounted

Yes, fully Catalina compatible (version 4.1 and newer)

Accounted 4.x (first released in 2015) users have access to 64-bit as long as you update to version 4.1 or newer. If you own an Accounted 4.x license you’re good to go. If you’re on an older version of Accounted (2.x or 3.x) you’ll have to purchase an upgrade license to 4.x to get Catalina compatibility.

 

Accounted via the Mac App Store

Not yet Catalina compatible, expected late 2019.

Currently the version of Accounted available on the Mac App Store is 4.0.4. We added 64-bit capabilities in 4.1. We hope to update Accounted for the Mac App Store before the end of the year with these capabilities to get it ready for Catalina. If you’re on the App Store version and want to transition to the non-App Store version, please open a support ticket and we can help you with the transition.

 







Studiometry 12.0.2 and Accounted 4.0.1 Released

Studiometry 12.0.2 Released

Studiometry 12 was released in October with over 120 new features and updates. If you haven’t seen all of the great new features yet, here are a few:

Studiometry 12.0.2 adds several features and fixes in a free update for registered 12.x and Studiometry Cloud users. This update adds to the power of your customizable Project Stages. You can now filter by stages in smart groups, and filter and sort custom summaries by Project stage. We’ve also improved syncing reliability for both the Cloud and the non-Cloud syncing services. See the version history for all of the details.

If you own any previous version of Studiometry, you can upgrade to version 12.x for a discounted price and get all of the new features as well as free updates until version 13 is released.

 
 

Accounted 4.0.1 Released

Accounted is our snappy, pro-level accounting app that works great on its own or as Studiometry’s sidekick. We’ve updated version 4.x with several new features and fixes. This is a free update for registered 4.x users, and registered users of any older version can update to Accounted 4 for a discounted price.

This update improves the printing capabilities of split transactions, adds several features making it easier to access and manage your data location, and fixes a few minor issues from the 4.0 release. See the version history for more information.

Full Speed Ahead

Accounted 4 does some behind-the-scenes magic to split your data into fiscal years while still keeping everything in one file. So what does this actually mean? Accounts load way faster. Transactions and balances are calculated almost instantly. You can “load” a specific fiscal year, or show your entire account history without opening separate files.

 

 

Company Overview

A new Company Overview gives a quick snapshot of activity over the past 30 days. You’ll be able to see a visual representation of the top income and expense accounts, and the changes to balances in your bank accounts.

 

Company Overview
 

New Interface & Retina Support

Accounted 4 has a cleaner, sleeker interface inspired by Yosemite. Translucent cues, vibrant icons, and less clutter make Accounted 4 as pretty as it is powerful. Plus, all of the icons and views have been updated to take advantage of the beautiful screens on Retina MacBook Pro and iMac 5K.

 

New User Interface
 

Over 50 Improvements

More Mac improvements include a transition to Cocoa. This gives Accounted a cleaner interface, full-screen capability, OS X Spellcheck, and compatibility with OS X Services.

Many other new features and enhancements have been added, including program-wide search, a new general ledger report, recurring transaction and people views in the main window, improved accounts payable and accounts receivable, and more.
