Our Giveaway is now closed, and congrats to our winners! Stay tuned for more great giveaways we have coming up soon!
Earlier this year we reviewed Gemini, the duplicate finder, and came to the conclusion that it was a pretty great app. It worked incredibly well at finding any duplicated files on whatever disk you threw at it. That’s not to say it didn’t have its faults, but the folks at MacPaw have worked hard on flattening out the creases and have produced a great free update to their beautiful app.
Let’s take a look at the new features in Gemini, and see why it’s still one of the best ways to clean up duplicate files from your Mac. Plus, we’ve got 5 copies for our readers, so keep reading to see how to enter our giveaway!
The New Gemini
The most notable lacking feature was that Gemini could find the duplicated in Apple’s own apps, like iTunes and iPhoto, but it couldn’t remove them. If one of the duplicates was elsewhere (i.e not in iTunes or iPhoto) then this wasn’t a problem, but if you found dozens of duplicated of photos and they were all in the aforementioned apps then Gemini could not remove them. This issue was rectified, so any duplicates you have can now be totally removed, without the need to manually jump in and select the ones to keep and the ones to delete.
Update: Then, we initially ran into trouble since iPhoto was recently updates to version 9.4 and Gemini didn’t support it, but the MacPaw team has just fixed this issue, so you should have no trouble integrating Gemini with your iPhoto library.
This update brings various much welcomed additions to an already great app, such as full retina support, so those with Retina Display MacBook Pros can now use this app how it was meant to be viewed. There is also support for Mountain Lion, localisation in German, Spanish, Italian, French and Russian, as well as several improvements in the search algorithm and performance.
All together this update is akin to Mountain Lion: not much that makes you’re mouth salivate with desire, but rather a continual upgrade towards a more perfect piece of software.
