ImportServer and NetGlance are now compatible with Mac OS X 10.10 “Yosemite”. The installers for both apps are also now “signed”, so you should no longer see any scary warnings from Apple or Microsoft that we are an “unknown developer”.
We have to pay annual fees for certificates now (in the hundreds of dollars) to Apple and Microsoft’s certification partners so that they don’t try to scare you away from our software. It’s either that or distribute through their app stores and give them 30% of our sales income. It’s kindof a racket. Trust me, Google’s no better.
Rant aside, check out NetGlance if you haven’t seen it before. It’s a pretty slick little app that has all kinds of interesting uses. The simplest case is to monitor a netcam, but we use it to watch weather maps, traffic, and stock prices. We have some researchers using it to monitor satellite image feeds. Pretty cool, huh?
Oh, and we lowered the prices. ImportServer is now $10 (was $20) and Netglance is now $5 (was $15).
