ForeverSave Lite is the little brother of ForeverSave. This alone should give you an idea of how our new revolutionary save method works. The Lite version features the same interface and use as the full version except for the missing backup and versioning management. Its set of features includes the 'Save All' action, Hotkeys and the well-known application assistant. The assistant lets you define how, when and what to save. Every time you add a new application to your list, the assistant guides you through all necessary steps. ForeverSave Lite means no more data loss if applications crash.

Perfect one-trick pony, works in any circus you want. Useful in mail apps, too.
It's really >> set and forget < < to add another cliche.
Just realized I set it months ago to cover MailMate.
Actually, I combine with Foreversave (Non-Lite) for fine-grained coverage between Time Machine back-ups.

Let your computer have a crash - your documents won't be crashed, too! Working proper and simple.

For anyone who doesn't know this was EverSave.

A handy utility that's saved my work numerous times when programs crashed. Overall pros are easy-to-navigate preferences, a great website, and a friendly and efficient developer (NOTE: after submitting a feature request, the developer responded with a new version of the application THE SAME DAY). I would recommend this application to anyone who deals with Leopard-unsupported applications on a day to day basis. Overall, EverSave was designed with a clear purpose, and it does it very well.

I was prepared to lambast this program for a few reasons but it's actually really fantastic!

The description says it's "clever" and that it works by "changing the frontmost application," but both statements are more confusing than they are helpful. Just install it (yes, there's an installer...) and set it up to work with your programs.

Hello CHRISTEFANO,
thanks for your review. There are currently two new features / fixes on my to-do list of EverSave:
- Backup: EverSave automatically creates backups of your documents so it doesn't overwrite text
- Timer fix: EverSave does not interrupt the screen saver when using the timer.

Thanks to everybody for giving EverSave a try!
Best regards,
Tobias Jordan.

Thank you very much Tobias for filling in this gaping hole in OSX and many of Apple's Cocoa apps. :)

One comment I got from another user I recommended this to is that it saves on the time interval whether anything has changed or not. Any chance of letting it skip the save instead?

Just demoing this app now, but one feature I can tell you right now it needs: the option to save documents with a "Save As", and automatically adding a user-definable suffix to the file name (i.e. autosave001, autosave002 etc.). Date/Time suffix would be great.

That would additionally be handy for an idle computer situation, such as: if the computer has been idle for more than X minutes, save via Save As with the autosave suffix.

I know I don't always necessarily want to save the open document as-is, so if the auto-save saved a separate version you are totally safe.

Also, a pref to not auto-save if the document has already been saved recently would be nice.

Interesting app though. I would just be worried that it would save a change I didn't want to save an overwrite an open document -- the opposite problem of not saving regularly :)
