Potion Factory and The Mac App Store

Yesterday, the shape of the Mac software landscape changed forever and I'm happy to have been a part of it from the beginning. All of my Mac software except The Hit List are available at the Mac App Store. Here is a status report of where things stand with the Potion Factory apps.

Give Good Food To Your Mac

Give Good Food To Your Mac is a unique promotion that lets you build your own software bundle. You get a better deal the more you buy. This is the 3rd time that they're doing this and I'm excited to have been invited to participate this time. It all ends in about 2 weeks so head on over there and check out all the cool software.

Potion Factory and Leopard

I just released Voice Candy 1.2 with Leopard compatibility. It actually took more work than I anticipated, but it's finally done and it even has a 512 by 512 pixel icon now. As usual for a .1 release, it is a free upgrade so if you're a Voice Candy user, you should get it.

Tangerine!, however, is taking longer than expected due to DRM protected song support. For the time being, if you are a Tangerine! user, I suggest filtering out protected songs using the rules in Tangerine!'s preferences. It works OK otherwise though. My original plan was to have both apps ready today, but at this point I'm hoping to bring full Leopard compatibility to Tangerine! by the end of next week.

Leopard looks pretty sweet and I hope a lot of you get it because my next app will be Leopard only. It is just too hard to pass up new technology in Leopard for the sake of Tiger compatibility.

Tangerine! and Voice Candy Updated

Tangerine! just got a minor update but for some it could be a big deal. That's because it is now localized to Japanese and that includes even the online documentation. Our Japanese distributor, ACT2, have been a great help with these.

Voice Candy had been localized to Japanese for a while but it now includes the translated online documentation as well.

If you are Japanese and bought the software untranslated, thank you. I'm so sorry that it took so long. ごめんなさい!

Email Voice Candy Recordings as MP3

One of the feature in Voice Candy is the ability to add custom AppleScript actions to interact with different applications. One action that I think Voice Candy users might find handy is an action to send email with the recording in MP3 format. Currently, Voice Candy only records to the QuickTime movie format and so the "Send Email" action sends the recording as a .mov file which might not be accessible for recipients on PCs without QuickTime installed.

So, in this post I would like to show you a way to send emails with MP3 recordings by using an AppleScript action.
