Time flies!

OK … It seems that blogging isn’t made for me. It’s more than a year since my last post. How time flies!

I’ve done a lot of development for the Mac in the last year: In Mai 2010 I’ve released Version 1.5.0 of my iTunes Controller Playwatch. Then, end of June 2010, I got a project inquiry to develop a Photo Book Application for the Mac. I agreed and worked till the end of October 2010 for that project. If you like, you can have a look at the result. Three more persons worked on that project. I mainly developed the UI, except for the page editor.

After that, I did a small Project for the iPhone. It was an enhancement of an App called Kalaydo. The task was to refine the search. The App got released in January 2011.

Then I prepared my iTunes Controller Playwatch for the grand opening of the Mac AppStore. It was “Ready for Sale” on January 19. 2011. I then started developing a “light” version of Playwatch called Playwatch-Ticker. Released in February 2011.

In March and April 2011 I took some time off …. I recharged the batteries and made some thoughts about future projects.

In May 2011 I released Version 1.1.0 of Scharping. This tiny, little program reduces the speed of CD/DVD drives of Macs, while listening to Audio CDs.

Currently I’m working on a “Pro” version of Scharping. This will be a secure Digital Audio Extraction (DAE) tool, going to be released in the third quarter 2011. You might think that CDs are a thing from the past, but HIFI enthusiast still have a great need for a professional ripping tool on the Mac. I got a lot of inquiries for it so I decided to develop it.

Ok, now I know why time flew by last year …
