A new toolbar appears in Carbonize v1.2

March 2019

In the latest update Carbonize gets a pretty significant graphical overhaul. With the new toolbar comes a dedicated Export button that allows you to choose between exporting through the Floating Windows you’re familiar with, or a standard Save Panel.

I’ve also added a Share button that allows you to quickly import the images in apps that you use often.

Finally, there’s a new Release Notes window that will update you on all the changes that were made. It’s shown the first time you launch an update.

You can get the update from the Mac App Store.

Relax v1.1 adds mute after waking from sleep

February 2019

Relax version 1.1 is out now. I’ve added support for pausing after your computer wakes from sleep.

I’ve also changed Relax’ muting-after-enabling behavior a bit:

Previously only starting Relax while it wasn’t running would trigger the mute-at-startup sequence. Now disabling and the re-enabling Relax will also mute the built-in speakers and pause any players. This should prevent even more awkward moments where you thought your speakers where muted while they actually weren’t. 👌

Update in the app, through the Mac App Store or get Relax today!

Denied is now free 🙀, with a Tip Jar

December 2018

I’m trying something new to support the development of my apps. Instead of charging upfront, Denied is now free with optional in-app purchases.

This puts a lot of trust in you, my customer. I rely on your generosity to generate enough revenue to continue working on my software. It’s a little scary, I have to say.

That said, I’m very excited about lowering the bar to use my apps. There’s nothing stopping you anymore from recommending Denied to others and for them to install it on their Macs.

If you’ve purchased Denied before, that’s marvelous. Your support has kept me working on Denied since 2014! I’m hoping you’re with me for this next chapter. 🤟
