Snapz Pro X 2.5.0 is coming... and it's not merely a bug fix update for OS X 10.8 "Mountain Lion"! We've actually been furiously at work rewriting the product from scratch to take advantage of modern APIs, include compatibility for Retina displays, and have written new and improved video capture engine as well!
We're currently at the Final Candidate stage, so we're feeling good that it'll be released shortly. It will be a free update to existing Snapz Pro X 2.x customers, and requires OS X 10.7 "Lion" or 10.8 "Mountain Lion". So here's a little sneak peek!
When I first started writing software, I was a teenager in my parent's house, doing it for the challenge and enjoyment of it. I don't want to date myself too much, but that was back in the days of 1200 baud dialup modems and BBSs... and floppy disks.
My problem at the time wasn't the technical hurdle of coding, but rather figuring out what to code. I was a kid, and had little concept of what actual people in the real world did with their computers. So at a family get together, it was natural for me to take advice from a relative who said he really could use an "easy" way to print envelopes.
That direction in hand, I set out to write a program ("Desk Accessory" in the parlance of the day) that would let you print envelopes easily. Being an original and creative kind of guy, I called it "EasyEnvelopes".
Soundboard is an application from Ambrosia that lets you create libraries of instantly trigger-able sound effects, and is used by broadcasters, podcasters, and live event artists the world over. Ever since the release of Soundboard 2.0 for Mac, Ambrosia has been hard at work on a version of Soundboard for iPad.
Adapting a desktop computer application for a "new category" portable device like the iPad can be challenging. First, you need to distill down what features people will want… which isn't necessarily the same as the desktop version. Often people will be using the device in very different physical situations, and thus their expectations and priorities are different.
The Mac platform has been seeing a remarkable resurgence over the past few years, but one thing has been notable by its absence: a decent solitaire game for the Mac! That's why we've decided to bring our popular iPhone and iPad solitaire game Mondo Solitaire to the Mac.
ROCHESTER, New York -- August 19, 2010 -- Few things can cause a case of nervousness like giving a preview copy of an unreleased product to a talented reviewer. But, the rewards are only that much sweeter when the product gets amazing praise! Such a scenario played out this past week when Ambrosia sent a copy of the unreleased WireTap Anywhere 2 to Jim Dalrymple of The Loop.
The preview starts off with, "When Ambrosia Software first released WireTap Anywhere (WTA), they changed the way I thought of my audio hardware. Now with version 2.0 almost ready to be released, WireTap Anywhere will completely change the way I record audio." Dalrymple continues on to say, "WireTap Anywhere is one of those software applications that you don’t know you need until you use it. Once you have it, you’ll never have a computer without it."
