Video ASCII Art Preview

We had so much fun making our Video Fractal app that we decided to to use the same technology to make another video creation utility, this time based on our ASCII Art program. Instead of converting images to still ASCII art pictures,  our app converts entire movie files! While it’s fun playing around with fractals, we see many more practical applications for ASCII art videos. We finally got something to show this morning, checkout the preview below! It’s a very rough preview, now comes there process of adding back all of the settings from ASCII Art in a nice user interface. If everything goes as well is with the Video Fractal app we expect to have this app submitted to Apple for review this week!

GL Golf Multiplayer

We’re happy to announce that version 2.48 has been submitted to Apple for review. This update brings turn based Game Center multiplayer support. Players take turns playing three holes until the rounds is fished. Unfortunately Apple does not support Game Center outside of the Mac App Store, so shareware users will have to download the Mac App Store version to take advantage of this feature. We are providing promotional codes to registered shareware users, to request one simply email with your serial number and we will send you a promo code to download the game for free from Apple. Course/Subscription packs are unable to be transferred due to limitations with Apple’s promo code system. We are releasing the shareware version 2.48 today, we expect the Mac App Store update to be approved by Apple in 5-10 days.
