Notable apps and app updates for October 20, 2015

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks for iOS and Mac OS X:

iOS Apps/Updates

Connect2Car, which specializes in integrated automotive electronic solutions, has debuted the Connect2Car Apple Watch application. The free app allows users to remotely find, start, and manage other critical safety aspects of their car.

Kewlanu AB has announced AutoFindr 1.0.3. The iPhone app automatically keeps track of where you park your car. AutoFindr uses a car's existing Bluetooth hands free connection to detect when a person leaves their car and saves the location. AutoFindr is free, but does offer in-app purchases.

DrMop Games has driven out Rage Quit Racer 1.0. It’s a $0.99, extreme speed 3D racing game for iPhone and iPad devices. With vertical racing action, players are dropped vertically at extreme speed down dangerous tunnels across 8eight different worlds. Players must navigate the tunnel, whilst maintaining shields, collecting points and avoiding asteroids, traffic and bombs. 

Mac OS X Apps/Updates

FreeFileSync has released version 7.5 of its free open source file synchronization utility for all modern versions of Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux. The new version supports the SFTP protocol.

FreeFileSync eliminates the tasks of manually identifying files that have changed on the source computer and moving them to the target computer. It can recognize which files have changed, and move only those files to the target computer. Users can set up a mirror synchronization batch job, and run it each time files or folders need to be changed on the target computer.

FreeFileSync can now detect moved files on the source computer, even for targets with no file-id support (for example, when using SFTP) or with unstable file-id support (when using FAT targets). This new capability delivers a performance boost under NTFS-to-SFTP and NTFS-to-FAT mirror scenarios.

On the Mac platform, FreeFileSync requires Mac OS X 10.7 or higher Go here for more info.
