SwitchUp

1.7
16 April 2015

Create varied copies of application data.

Overview

SwitchUp allows you to manage multiple profiles of settings (preferences and data) for almost any application. It's like a multi-user environment for each application. Do you ever get an app set up just the way you like it, then need to create another profile with different settings? Maybe you just want to test something out or maybe you use the same Mac for both work and home. This is where SwitchUp shines.

The SwitchUp trial allows you to create an unlimited number of documents and profiles. There is a short delay when switching profiles and a reminder that you should purchase a license for continued use.

You will not see this message or delay when SwitchUp is licensed or when using SwitchUp with any Irradiated Software apps (e.g. Cinch, SizeUp, iClip, Tickets, etc).

What's new in SwitchUp

Version 1.7:
  • Trial can now be used freely for all Irradiated Software apps..
  • Various little fixes and changes.
  • Access the complete release notes.

In addition to the exceptional utility of a program like this, I also have to give the developer a 5-star rating. (I'd go higher if possible.) I e-mailed him with a request for help for an older program (DropDrawers), as RooSwitch didn't want to handle it. All I asked for was some advice. Instead of mere advice, he actually (in just a few hours) downloaded DropDrawers, tinkered with RooSwitch, and sent me a file that solved my problem. (He also included necessary warnings and instructions.) We all know that there are developers out there who just don't seem to care. We also know there are many good ones who actually provide support. This developer just went to the top of my list in terms of customer service that I've experienced. And I've used Macs since 1987.

OS X 10.11.6 For many years, I've had no need for SwitchUp (or its predecessor RooSwitch). Recently I started using Dyrii Journal, a fantastic app, but one at the present limited to one Journal Document at a time. With SwitchUp, I can have as many as I want. Great!

Incredibly handy tool for switching between setups. Now, I can easily swap which Skype account I want to be active in, without having to re-enter passwords

Great software - one of those that you don't realise how useful it's going to be till you start using it. For ages now I've had problems with Mail.app gobbling up CPU when I have my work & personal email accounts using the same setup, using Switchup I can keep two separate instances, move between the two & not have my CPU constantly panicking. Similarly, for troubleshooting a quirk in a App I always used to boot into the guest account to see if the problem's still exhibited in the app when it's devoid of all plugins & the like, now I can do it straight from my primary account. On top of that the developer's a true gent & deserves your support. So buy this!

a) Features; top marks for now. b) Ease of Use; 4.9 (I believe can be improved in due time, but that's just for the adv. settings. nb: that's why they are adv. settings ;o) ) c) Value, almost top. I would certainly appreciate a lower cost if it is any possible. Or maybe some festive offers. d) Stability; so far, I've yet to run into any issues for the things I need rooSwitch for! Though the updates seemed to have slowed down, but I'll be glad to have less updates as long as they are stable. I don't need updates every week. I just want an app that works fine and update/upgrade when there's a real need to. Good job and keep up the RooVert project(s)! p.s. One thing you might want to work on at the moment --- the forum (http://www.roobasoft.com/rooSwitch/forums/) it gives an error at the time I accessed it.

I have to give rooSwitch five stars. Why, not because I know the developer or because I am getting a kickback. I give rooSwitch five stars because of it's usefulness, ease of use and stability. I really don't understand why Apple doesn't allow creating new profiles for it's iLife apps, but rooSwitch provides one central app where you can create and delete profiles, not just for iLife apps, but basically for any app that you have.

Can we use the Apple Mail with this program? I would like to have profiles and maybe a simple password protection like iPhoto Buddy does.

Yes, rooSwitch can switch Apple's Mail. The size of your mailboxes determines how acceptable it will be at switching Mail. In future releases I plan to improve both the performance of switching as well as provide more feedback while switching. But again, yes, it will work.

new in rooSwitch 1.1 is the ability to move files instead of copying them. This makes working with large data stores like Mail or iPhoto very acceptable.

I really like the concept of this application. To be able to make "copies" of programs so that you can run various versions is actually very useful. I find that you can utilize this program to make copies of the dock and have you very own built-in dock switcher. Keep up the great work and I am looking forward to AppleScript support.
