When running Connected on macOS 10.13.4 (High Sierra) or greater and/or macOS 10.14.x (Mohave),  you will periodically see a message about Connected not being optimized for your Mac because it is a 32 bit application.  An example of the message is shown below.

"Connected 8.2" is not optimized for your Mac.   

This app needs to be updated by its developer to improve compatibility.

You can click OK and continue to use Connected without any limitations or compatibility issues.  A detailed explanation of the warning can be found at: https://support.apple.com/en-ca/HT208436

Apple announced at their 2018 WWDC that macOS 10.14 (Mojave) will be the last version of macOS to support 32 bit applications.  It was also noted that macOS 10.13 High Sierra release was the last release to support 32-bit apps “without compromise”.   

What's Next for Connected?

Accountek has released Connected 10, on April 10, 2019.   Among many new features and improvements, the next generation of Connected is a 64bit application with support for Retina/HD graphics.  It is important that we offer a macOS user experience "without compromise" for those users that choose to upgrade to macOS 10.14, Connected 10 is recommended.   PLEASE NOTE:  The to be named macOS 10.15, will only support 64 bit applications.   This release is expected in the early Fall of 2019.

Accountek has made the final release of Connected 8.x (v8.3) available to users in late May of 2018.
