    “Fetch” can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer. Says my security preference allow installation of only apps from the Mac App Store and identified developers. Is this because of Yosemite?
    Thanks for your help.

    You must have an older version of Fetch, from before Apple introduced the concept of developer ids. To open that copy you can:

    1) Right-click (or Control-click) on Fetch in the Finder
    2) Choose the Open command
    3) When asked whether you want to open this application from an unidentified developer, say that you do

    Alternatively, you can download the latest version of Fetch from:
