Now you can use your favorite USB Network Gate and FlexiHub without Glitches.

Update your macOS Sierra to the latest 10.12.1 version, share and access your remote devices with Flexihub and USB Network Gate. NO MORE CPU OVERLOAD!

Important for FlexiHub / USB Network Gate users with macOS Sierra!

FlexiHub and USB Network Gate - macOS Sierra

After the latest update to macOS 10.12 (Sierra), you might have noticed that the performance of your CPU reduced. You probably didn’t associate this with your favorite Flexihub or USB Network Gate software. We are aware of this issue and here are the things we want you to know:

  • While testing macOS 10.12 we found out that USB Network Gate and Flexihub overloads the CPU. You don’t even need to launch the software or share a device with it for the CPU to overload, just the presence of the software in your computer overloads it.

What are we doing to fix it you may ask

We started by contacting Apple Developer Technical Support. They responded by saying that this issue might be a minor OS bug.

Our team of engineers and Apple’s Developer support team at the moment are working round the clock to fix this bug and improve the existing features.

Our advice to you at this point is to keep track of your CPU activities via the Activity Monitor and stop any process that overloads it. This is because other software solutions might be causing the same problem.

NB: You don’t need to uninstall Flexihub or USB Network Gate. Fixing this minor bug is our TOP priority at the moment and it will be done in the shortest period of time.

You will be the first to know once it’s fixed. Stay tuned!!!

macOS Sierra – a disaster or a savior for software developers?

CloudMounter Dropbox client

While macOS 10.12 release is knocking on the doors, many users have already had a chance to install it on their Macs and evaluate all the benefits of the newest upgrade. However, not all developer companies are catching up. In the days when operating systems become more and more closed, it is risky to develop own system components which might beсome disabled with the release of the newer system version.

Developers need to adapt their products

For example, ExpanDrive that is using custom system components for disk mounting, still struggles to fully optimize the product for the newest macOS version. To run properly, it requires additional system commands to be executed via command line, each time you reboot your Mac. On the other hand, our CloudMounter is using native OS X’s file handling capabilities, as well as FUSE for OS X and stays flexible and adaptive to OS upgrades.

To stay on board you always need to adapt your products to the ecosystem they belong to. Use as much system components as it is allowed to, and make your software as native to the system as possible. We are thrilled about other innovations new OS upgrade brings and we are ready to conquer them all.
