Cocoatech Releases Path Finder 6.1.1 and 6.0.6

[] San Francisco, California – Cocoatech is pleased to announce Path Finder 6.1.1 and 6.0.6 for OS X, an update to their multiple award-winning file browser and management application. After great feedback from the initial Version 6 release, Cocoatech has even furthered Path Finder’s reputation as the best file managing application with the release of 6.1.1/6.0.6, fixing bugs and adding much-requested features. Built around a modular interface with different customizable views, the Utility app maintains all the conventions of the OS X Finder and Hierarchical File System, but allows the user to select both the layout and the amount of information displayed. Featuring a variety of useful tools and options, the app allows developers, writers, artists, and casual users alike to manage their files according to their own tastes, special needs, and workflows.

“A world-class operating system deserves a world-class file manager,” commented Steve Gehrman, Owner of Cocoatech and the Main Developer of Path Finder. “Users can dive into a familiar interface packed with uncommonly powerful features that make your file system sing with Path Finder 6.”

“We’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback from users on Version 6, and with this update, it makes Path Finder run even smoother than before. It’s unparalleled to anything out there on the market” said Cocoatech’s Marketing and Sales Director, Danny Saad.
