Version 2.0 (major update)

With the arrival of version 2.0, the project recording format changes radically to dramatically improve both stability and extraction speed.

The software now generates a temporary xlsx file for each 500 records extracted.
This allows for faster extraction as generating files with thousands of rows slows down their reading/writing, while improving the stability of the program enormously.

Two new folders are generated next to the executable program:

  • TempPRJ: this is where the data for the current extraction is stored
  • Projects: When you save a project, it will be stored here

Projects from previous versions are incompatible with this v2.0, so if you had any project pending you can download the previous version (v1.4g) again to finish it.

Version 1.4g

Added: Automatic deletion of log files older than 7 days
Added: Slowness warning message if you activate go through ALL Cities.

Added: New field extracted: Business Description (tested for Hotels and bars/restaurants)

Fixed: I didn’t get ratings for some types of business (e.g. hotels)

Fixed: Email and Claimed were always reactivated when the program was restarted (even if the user had disabled them before)

Version 1.4c

Fixed: An error when extracting a total of reviews larger than 32762 characters (due to the size limitation per cell of the Excel file format)
