Fetch and Catalina (28 posts)

    The current version of Fetch, 5.7.7, is not compatible with macOS 10.15 Catalina.

    I am working on Fetch 5.8, a Catalina-compatible 64-bit version. You can join the beta test list for Fetch 5.8 by going to:

    https://mailchi.mp/d007f56b91b3/fetch64beta

    You will receive an email with a link for downloading the latest beta (5.8b9), and you'll receive future emails whenever there's a new beta release. The current beta release is missing some features but should be usable for most people, and I'm working on fixing the bugs that beta testers are reporting.

    Thanks,

    I have used Fetch for 10 years and now it won't work because of the Catalina upgrade. Bummer!

    Been using Fetch for a very long time, and panicked a bit after upgrading to Catalina. Now I am good and continue my peaceful usual days. THANK YOU!!

    I've just upgraded to Catalina. What a waste! Only Apple applications work. Is there a fix yet for Fetch?

    Hi David,

    As the post says, you can sign up to download a Catalina-compatible beta copy of Fetch at:

    Hi! I am using Fetch for years - love it. I just received your email about the beta version, and when I enter my serial number, it says it is not recognized. I am happy to email you my credentials.

    Please advise how I can activate my beta version.

    Best,

    Hello,
    I have read though all of the comments so I understand that you will (hopefully) be testing Fetch vs 5.8 soon.
    I will be so very happy. My old Mac Book Pro died on me and I was in the middle of working on a website. I bought a new Mac Book Pro and it is a Catalina.

    Do you have an estimate date when you might have Fetch out for use?

    Looking forward to Fetch for 64bit.

    Thank you for your help.

    Hi When do you expect the updated Fetch to be available in the app store?

    Thanks

    Sisty2: if you sign up for the 5.8 beta version you can download and use it now. You can do that at https://mailchi.mp/d007f56b91b3/fetch64beta

    tim: I do not know when Fetch 5.8 might be in the App Store. If you purchased Fetch from the App Store and need a serial number to use the beta please contact me at https://fetchsoftworks.com/fetch/feedback

    Hello,

    Please recommend what I can use instead of Fetch for file uploads to my publisher until the new version of Fetch that's compatible to Catalina 10.15 is available.

    Thanks,
    Jane

    Haven't received my beta test email?

    Does it come automatically or do I have to wait for it?

    The link says that my trial is over/expired and says that I have to purchase 5.8 which is fine but when I go to purchase it, the version for sale is 5.7. Where can I buy 5.8?

  • Jim Matthews Administrator

    Hi Julia,

    When you purchase Fetch 5.7 you will receive a serial number that also works for Fetch 5.8.

    Thanks,

    Have lost Automator's Fetch shortcuts with the Catalina-5.8b13 combination. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Posted 3 weeks ago #

  • Jim Matthews Administrator

    Hi neilturn,

    Unfortunately Fetch 5.8 does not have Automator support. I hope to restore that feature in a future release.
