New Version of PixCompare and PixVeew

Both applications were updated, among other things, support for 10.11 (El Capitan) was improved. See PixCompare and PixVeew on lakehorn.com.

For PixVeew, I’ve decided to remove the “Plus Mode” In-App purchase. In the 6 months I’ve had this feature, about 60 users actually payed for this upgrade.  This does not add up for me. The additional effort is not worth the earnings in any way. Therefore, I’ve removed the In-App purchase and activated all features in the basic mode, i.e. unlimited printing and recompressing.

I want to sincerely thank the 60 people who chose to pay for the “Plus Mode”. You still made a difference! Together with the 4000+ users, this justifies the continuation of the development of PixVeew. New features and versions will be available in the future. If you have any specific request or idea, contact me!

Updates for PixCompare and PixVeew posted to Mac App Store

Version 4.01 of PixCompare improves comparison performance by more than 2x. Also updated the minimal requirements to Mac OS X 10.8.

Version 1.1 of PixVeew (new name, changed due to already a lot of PixViewer apps floating around). Added some controls in full screen view that were available in the old FastPic. I’ll add more feature from the old apps, but they will be available as an in-app purchase only.
