We are working hard to update all of our software products for Apple’s newly released version of Mac OS X (v. 10.7, called Lion)
Over the next few days we will announce the updates as they become available and will be offered as free updates to our existing customers.
All of our test show that there are no major issues with any of our existing products running on Lion. Most of the problems we’ve seen so far are related to then user interface (window refreshes, controls not drawing correctly, etc.)
We love new type apps for iPad, & this one is perfect for the novice, & designer alike.
