Together 3.4 for Mac and 1.2 for iPad and iPhone

Together IconTogether 3.4 for Mac is now available. This version includes a Share extension for importing URLs from Safari and other apps, adds a Markdown preview, new library management features, more changes to ensure the app looks good on OS X Yosemite, plus other new features and improvements. Together 1.2 for iPad and iPhone is also available today featuring a new Share extension, visual tweaks and a number of other improvements.

Share Extension

Together for Mac now includes a Share extension for importing URLs from Safari. Appearing as “Add to Together” when you click the Share button, the extension can tell Together to import the URL as a bookmark, web archive or web PDF. The default choice matches the “Web Links” setting in Together’s Import preferences.

Markdown Preview

When editing a plain text file in Together for Mac you can now choose Preview > Show Markdown Preview from the menu to show an HTML preview generated from the Markdown in the file. This preview can be fully customised in the Plain Text section Together’s Previews preferences to enable / disable extensions, change the fonts used or specify a custom CSS stylesheet for complete control.

Library Management

There is a new Manage Libraries panel that can be used to open, reveal or remove libraries, including removing and rebuilding iCloud libraries in the Mac App Store version. Choose File > Library > Manage Libraries to see that.

There is also a new “Trash Missing Files” option in that File > Library menu. This can be used to search the library for any folders or items whose original items are missing and move them to the library’s trash, useful or anyone who links to files that may have gone missing or who’s changed the files in Together’s library folder in the Finder rather than the app itself.

User Interface and Usability

More changes have been made to make Together for Mac look at home on OS X Yosemite, including labels with tightly rounded corners, similar changes to various custom controls, tabs that are always visible when the app is full screen, updated document icons for Together’s own file formats and fixes for various other issues that appeared as a consequence of changes in Yosemite.

Other changes include clarification about what the old “Remove” commands do, such as whether that will move a file or folder to the Trash, preserving the selected item after cancelling a search, the ability to go to a specific page when viewing PDFs and more. See the Release Notes for a full list of changes.

Together 1.2 for iPad and iPhone

Together for iOS IconWhile many of the changes above are intended to bring Together for Mac in line with Together for iPad and iPhone and OS X Yosemite, version 1.2 of Together for iPad and iPhone is also available on the App Store today, and includes a Share extension, matching visual tweaks for labels and Yosemite-like tags, plus a number of other improvements.


Together 3.4 is a free upgrade for all Together 3 users. A full license is $49.99 and an upgrade from version 2.x is $24.99 when purchasing Together from this site.

    HI Steve,

    Will you be converging Together Mac versions now that iCloud drive is out there ?

    Other developers have done so and moved away from ‘an Appstore’ version.

  2. Steve Harris Says:

    No, Apple still requires that apps are sold through its App Stores to use the Core Data iCloud syncing that Together needs for its library.
