iToner is released: Ambrosia wishes to thank the customers!

Posted Oct 17 2007, 12:00 AM

For those Ambrosia readers that check in daily to read what is currently happening around the company, you will no doubt have heard the exciting news that Ambrosia Software has released iToner 1.0.3. This latest build brings with it GUI improvement, fixes and enhancements but more importantly this latest version if iToner offers it's users iPhone OS 1.1.1 compatibility.
 
If you are a user of iToner, then please take this opportunity to download the latest version to bring back all those ringtones you miss on the iPhone. If you haven't, then I suggest downloading this handy little application to try it out for yourself.
 
Official iToner page
 
Rather than delve into the world of why iToner had broke or dwell on any issues or pointing of blame, we would rather focus our attention on where our motivation truly was founded to bring this software back from beyond the grave. The Ambrosia Times Weblog has decided to take this opportunity to point at where the striving force to update this software had truly come from.  
 
That source is the customers and fans of Ambrosia!  
 
We would like to thank all the customers out there who took time from their busy schedules to write us. When iToner had stopped functioning with the previous update, we had feared for the worst. That the masses would suddenly become enraged by the sounds of "Marimba" coming from their iPhones, and thus would drive them to quest for our blood. While we did have those that complained, cried, and demanded money back, we were nearly shocked by the public outpouring of support we had received by the customers who had purchased the product.  
 
Throughout the entire process, the ups and downs of iToner, or perhaps better said, the functioning and non-functioning points of it's life, the Public Relations guru had been reading the comments and responding to all those that had written to Ambrosia. We thought it would be nice for the Ambrosia Times readers to see a handful of the comments that helped ensure Ambrosia stay on course and have iToner released and available as soon as we could.

Hello,
 
I just wanted to thank you guys for being so hard-nosed and dedicated to the development, and continued "fixing" of iToner. It's a really great app, and it speaks volumes about Ambrosia that you work so aggressively to maintain it, and keep it functional against the brick walls that Apple continues to introduce. So thank you for making such great software, and thank you for standing by your products so firmly. It really does say a lot!  
And I hope you realize that your dedication does not go unnoticed.
Wishing you luck for the future,
 
=-=-=-=-=-
 
Hi Guys-
Just wanted to let you know that I'm pulling for you. I consider my $15 well spent and would definitely pay more knowing that you are hard at work looking out for us. You have a great product and I feel a little guilty sometimes cause I love Apple so much but they need to get out of the corporate mentality a bit. People like you invigorate their products and they need to lighten up a little bit.
Can't we all just get along?
Thanks again from one of your biggest fans and supporters and word of mouthers.
You guys ROCK!!!!!
 
=-=-=-=-=-
 
I love to hear my wife's voice and she had a very special message I had set up for me when she called, which thanks to iToner I had used as a custom ringtone. I look forward to receiving your latest version, so that I can have my wife's beautiful voice greet me when she calls during one of my busy days at work.
Cheers,
 
=-=-=-=-=-
 
Hey Folks,
 
I'm sure you have some customers yelling at you for being money stealing SOB's, etc, but I just wanted to say I appreciate that you're trying to get iToner working again, and I for one am happier having spent $15 to use my OWN tones (even if for a brief time) than giving Apple even $1 for a DRM tone. Yeah, maybe that's cutting my own nose off to spite my face, but so be it.  
 
=-=-=-=-=-
 
We would like to again thank all those that took the time to write in. The developers as well as the support crew here at the office appreciated all the kind words as we busily worked away of the past few weeks.
 
"A company can only be as good as the people that stand behind it." When I first had heard that saying, or perhaps read it off of a motivational poster, my initial thoughts were that it meant the employees, but after reading all these comments and letters I realize what it truly means. That those customers that stood behind us, offering support and encouragement are just as big a part of this company as anyone else can be. From this point on we have truly realized that Ambrosia quite possibly has the most amazing customers and friends that any company could ever wish for.  
 
Thank you,
Signed the Ambrosia Crew.

Ambrosia at the PodCast and New Media Expo

Posted Sep 21 2007, 12:00 AM

To All the Podcasters and New Media readers we just wanted to put the bug in everyones ear again, that Ambrosia will be attending this years Podcast and New Media expo in Ontario California Next week.

 

The 3rd Annual New Media Expo is an annual convention that educates individuals and companies about how to produce high-quality audio and video digital content, grow a loyal audience, and market or monetize that content in creative ways.

The Expo is a "prosumer" and corporate event that brings together influential digital media creators, podcasters and content developers to cover the complete range of creation techniques, business objectives and future trends.
The Expo is also a major networking event where content creators can share ideas and build partnerships.

Ambrosia Crew Members will be there showing off our software, offering demonstrations and Just making the Expo that much cooler. Should you be in the area, or a podcaster please feel free to swing past the booth and say a hello.

The crew will be Me, master of the PR Guru and Schmoozing. Evan the true sultan of service and tech support master himself. And the one and only Michael the Secretary of Ambrosia Propaganda! We will be recording audio segments using the latest software we have, WireTap Studio!, meeting with some other fellow podcasters, and having hourly demonstrations of what our software can do.

The Ambrosia booth, #508, is actually one of the largest that will be at the expo, and devided in half between systems showing off our software and allowing the users to play with them to the other half which is actually a theater area with seating so people can see the demonstrations of our software.

Not only are we showing off demonstrations of our software but we have invited many other podcasters to join us and use the booth and talk about their podcasts and even give live performances at the Ambrosia Booth.

Darren, Jeff, and Jeff Jr, the Three Amigos of Extremepods.com will be joining the Ambrosia crew Saturday at 10am to help all the Expo goers recorver a bit from Friday Nights afterhour festivities from the Culture Catch Artist Salon which is the brain child of Dusty Petracca. The Extremepod guys are going to give a live show and recap of the expo up to that point and inviting everyone back to a BloodyMary Party in their suite to help the dazed crowd deal with the hangovers and energize them for the rest of the show. To help with this, Ambrosia will be offering those that show up free Ambrosia Mugs to help hold their life juice.. I mean coffee. So show up at 10 on saturday and get a free Ambrosia Mug (and maybe we'll throw in coffee!)

David Hamilton, President and CEO of the MacObserver will be joining us to discuss his site, the expo itself and to chat with us about the Mac and what the future holds for all that use these great peices of art we call our computer.

Since we have the Party aspect covered, and the Tech aspect covered, what we needed to do is also have a bit of Science thrown into the mix to really capture what it means to be Ambrosia. To fullfill this we are having one of my favorite podcasts sitting in the Ambrosia booth, Kirsten Sanford, Creator and host of This Week in Science. For those that don't now them, TWiS is a 1 hour weekly science/tech radio show that is broadcast in over 60 countries worldwide and discusses all the topics your hungry brain needs to know about.

There are still other podcasters set to be making an apperance at our booth, if only to sit and chat and do some recordings. Make sure to check back next week to learn more.

Lets not forget how wild the Ambrosia crew is, it's not going to be all work this entire Expo. To get the fun times started Ambrosia is Sponsoring the ExtremePods party that is happening Thusday night (Sept 27th). Ambrosia Shirts, hats and other other goodies are being given away as the Podcasters decend upon the Suite. Podshow will be there interviewing guests and the famous folks that are venturing to this big event for their own site. So, make sure to look for us and the big Ambrosia Banner on their site in the future.

News from the Office: Hector Egg

Posted Aug 13 2007, 12:00 AM

Hector D. Byrd, mascot and true leader here of Ambrosia Software recently stunned the world with her laying a small and unfertilized egg.* This is the second egg in approximately 4 years to be found by the stunned Ambrosia Crew. Seemingly unconcerned with this event and recent arrival Hector has issued a "No Comment" statement to the press.  
Any questions or comments can be directed towards her Publicist.

 

* Years back a blood sample was taken for genetic/health testing, it was discovered that Hector D. Byrd, was actually not the big strong guy we thought our mascot to be, but actually a female who was keeping a big secret.
