Inside Mac Radio Interview!

The highly regarded popular internet radio station Inside Mac Radio has just released an interview with CDFinder chief developer Norbert M. Doerner.

Inside Mac Radio host Scott Sheppard talks with Doerner about the cool GeoFinder feature in CDFinder, which allows photographers to use GPS coordinates embedded in photos to quickly search for images taken at a specific point. The interview goes on about how CDFinder can help anyone to keep their precious data structured and organized, and how the popular cataloger tool can quickly find any data on any disk you have.

Here is the full interview as free podcast in the iTunes store.

Podcast MacBreak Weekly talks about CDFinder

They just keep coming! Yet another very positive review of CDFinder. This time, it is a podcast of MacBreak Weekly.

Alex Lindsay days: (at about minute 49 in the podcast, more info)

"We have 120 drives or something here... for backups and stuff. We run it through DiskTracker, which is kind of stone-age technology, to keep track of it.... CDFinder just builds a database of every file name that is on that drive, and if you are doing lots and lots of backups, you just scan these drives, and now you can just very quickly find what file is on what drive. We are just starting to use CDFinder, and as soon as I did the first scan, of my internal drive, I was like get rid of DiskTracker. CDFinder is light-years ahead of DiskTracker..."

And yet another cool review of CDFinder came in. This time, it is from the popular bioneural.net blog.

They write:

"CDFinder is essentially an asset manager that catalogues any file on any volume (CD-ROM, DVD, USB drive, etc). But media metadata are its speciality, and this indexing powerhouse has recently been extended to handle geotags and provide related functionality.

"Free updates since 1996" is nothing short of impressive. I reviewed the change log and that's 54 updates since the first English version was released. Not many companies can boast of such dedication to their existing customer base. The application menu even has a "Send e-mail to author..." option, again indicating a hands-on commitment to customer support (which is free). That kind of approach wins you loyalty."

Mac Recon also reviews CDFinder

The popular blog Mac Recon has written a really amazing review of CDFinder 5.1.

They write:

"CDFinder has a very clean, yet attractive, interface that works out perfectly and actually boosts its productivity. Some may even look at it as a streamlined Finder window because of how easy it is to gain access to any file within it.
...
But all the cataloguing would be useless if it didn’t have equally
powerful organizing and searching features. Fortunately, it does.
...
CDFinder is extremely powerful. It’s capable of handling millions of files (hard to test in a computer lab environment, though), and everything seems perfect."

Again, the CDFinder team is really happy to receive such positive praise! Thank you!

Ogle Earth reviews CDFinder

The popular blog Ogle Earth has written a very positive review of the new GPS features in CDFinder.

They write:

"So what happens when the developer, Germany’s Norbert Doerner, gets bitten by the geotagging bug? Why, he turns CDFinder into a geosearch marvel.
You just know this stuff is eventually going to make it into operating systems by default, it’s just that it will take ages."
