Chapter in this post:
The software developer SQWARQ, mentioned here once or twice in this blog, has had the first full version of the macOS analysis software available since the beginning of the year DetectX Swift for the Apple operating system from version 10.11. On the Download page you will also find the older versions DetectX and DetectXSL, of which the latter is no longer being developed, but can be used for Mac OS X 10.6. The program helps you to read out important system data for problem determination and problem solving on the computer from Cupertino.
With DetectX Swift you can create a comprehensive profile of the Apple Mac that can help you a lot when looking for problems. So if you ever need to fix the computer of someone among your friends or relatives, DetectX can help you with this. You can read out these values from the machine with just a few clicks:
While the SL version and the software that does not have a name extension are more or less obsolete models, the current focus is on marketing by SQWARQ DetectX Swift. There is the “Unregistered” and the “Home” version, each of which can be tested for 20 days.
If you want to start after the test or directly after the download and want to analyze several Mac computers in the long term and make them clear again, then the fee-based “Pro” and “Management” versions might be of interest to you. These cost € 41,70 and € 250,05 respectively and are intended more for professional helpers and IT guys in companies.
Here is an overview with a comparison of the individual features:
In addition to DetectX Swift, which I can recommend for acute troubleshooting and problem-solving on the Mac, there are a few other practical programs from the same developer. As already mentioned at the beginning, I have already summarized these for you in my own posts: FastTasks 2 as further support assistance and in addition Boot Buddy to create a macOS USB stick.
