    Would you like to back up, sync, and transfer your important data in one easy step?

    You can use Back It to create a new stand alone application with your backup data inside. Then you can use this newly created application to restore, sync, or transfer your important data to your original computer, a new computer, or your friends computer. You need not have Back It installed or open to allow the new application to work.

  • Sync and back up iCal, Mail, and Address Book
  • Back up personal data easily to CDs or DVDs
  • Transfer game saves to friends
  • Use Back It to make specialized stand-alone applications for moving files, game saves, fonts, and more. It’s great for friends sharing information with each other, people who need to sync information in homes with multiple computers, or IT Professionals managing large labs on a budget.

    Everyone Loves Free Upgrades!

    Please download Back It and give it a try absolutely free! Back It licenses are valid forever. They’re good from version to version, there are no upgrade fees. This is because of the nature of this kind of program. I will not charge you for adding more things to back up, fixing bugs, and the like. It’s just not right.

    The Power is Yours!

    Now, I don’t have every application in the world on my computer. That means that there’s probably data you want to back up for applications that are not supported yet. Please send me an email so I can get them added as soon as possible! My goal is to continue adding support until Back It works for everyone. Everyone benefits from the rapid support behind this software.

    Back It will grow as the userbase does, and as people send in ideas and requests the face of Back It will change constantly which provides you with the ultimate tool! It’s almost like having your own personal developer.

    As with any super sensitive data, please be sure to make multiple backups. Do not rely on a single method for recovery as the worst can happen.

An innovative smart folder system unlike anything you’ve ever seen keeps your entries together as you write. On-the-fly filtering and searching puts the data at your fingertips when you need it.

    What do people say about TuneAid ?

  • When my hard drive crashed during an iTunes Library backup with Apple’s Backup utility, I was stuck with an “in progress” bundle that wouldn’t restore. I didn’t spend a great deal of time comparing offerings in the iTunes/iPod rescue application space; after reading reviews here on MacUpdate I picked TuneAid from DigiDNA. The price was reasonable and the application delivered on its promised results: it restored everything on my iPod back to my iTunes Library. I noticed on MacUpdate that a new version was ready and I upgraded. A new activation key was needed but before I could check about the inconvenience, a new activation key appeared in my Mail inbox. Good job and thanks, DigiDNA..
  • Works perfectly with at least iPhone, iPod Classic and iPod Nano (these are the ones I’ve tried it with). TuneAid saved my music library when my media drive crashed and it managed to import back my stuff from my iPod Classic. Great Stuff! The interface is very nice and it works perfectly with iTunes importing not only the songs but the playlists as well.

  • - TuneAid has been rated 4.5/5 at MacUpdate

    ATTENTION WEBMASTERS: Monitor websites and servers for changes or failures

    “…a feature-rich tool that’s ideal for Webmasters who need to monitor a variety of Internet services.”
    – Matt Vance, Macworld

    Dejal Simon is the essential site monitoring tool for Mac OS X. It checks servers for changes or failures, and notifies you via e-mail, sound, speech, or other means. You can use it to track updated sites, and to alert you when an important server goes down or recovers. Developed in Cocoa, it is a native Mac OS X application with an intuitive and attractive interface.

    Simon is very versatile. It can be used to monitor your own website and servers, track your clients’ servers, communicate on arbitrary ports, run custom scripts for monitoring and notifications, and much more.

    “Simon constantly monitors the content of critical pages and shows me the changes that have been made. Quality control is very important to me: usability, reliability, design, that’s what people pay me for! In Simon I also find those qualities — and this feels good to me. … Simon adds another reliable and highly customizable layer of control and feedback! I also appreciate the fast response when contacting Dejal. The developer knows what he’s talking about!”

    - Holger Hubbs, web/print/information design,

    Central to Simon is the Monitor window. It enables you to see at a glance the current status of all of your monitored websites, servers, and applications. In addition to a colorful status icon and up-time percentage, the tests table displays how long ago the last change and failure occurred, and when the next check will occur. But that’s not all. This window also displays further statistics about the tests, and tables listing recent checks (including the check duration and a bar chart), changes (including the text that changed), failures (including the error description), and notifications (that can occur for changes, failures, and recoveries).

    “I searched high and low for a product to monitor my server, and Simon was the only product that worked flawlessly. Simon is also great at monitoring changes on other sites; handy if you want to be the first to see new content on seldom updated pages.”

    - Gord Lacey, Owner,

    For more information and screenshots, please visit the Dejal Simon website.

    The ZOT price is offered for the STANDARD LICENSE of Simon which retails for $59.95. This allows up to 20 tests – perfect for many webmasters. If you have more extensive needs, check out the Enterprise license.
