Great post on Pear Note

Friday, September 26th, 2008

I’d like to thank Chris Ashworth of Figure 53 for his great write-up of Pear Note. He’s been a very valuable beta tester, guide, and friend. I think I should try to outsource my website content to him as well, as this post does a better job telling how great Pear Note is than most the pages you’ll find here.

Announcing Pear Note 1.0

Friday, September 26th, 2008

I’m very happy to announce the release of Pear Note 1.0. I’m very excited to finally release this and start getting feedback from people I didn’t already know before starting this. I’m looking forward to delving into some of the features of Pear Note, but for now I’d just like to extend thanks to all those who helped me get here. First, thanks go to my family who permitted me to frequently ignore them while trying to get this out the door. I’d also like to thank Bryan Bell for supplying most of the great looking icons in Pear Note, including its application icon and toolbar icons. Thank you also to Ray at prMac for helping me get the word out about Pear Note. Thanks to the folks at Potion Factory for Potion Store which runs the web store here. Thanks to the WordPress guys for wordpress and bbpress, which power the blog and forums. Thanks to Andy for Sparkle which makes it easy to update Pear Note. And last but not least I’d like to thank my friend Chris Ashworth of Figure 53 for helping encourage me with regards to striking out on my own.

Coming soon

This blog has been quiet for the past few months as I’ve been furiously trying to make Pear Note as good as I know it can be. The good news is, the wait is almost over. I plan to release Pear Note next Friday, so soon all of you will be able to experience its goodness. I also plan to start publishing much more frequently to this blog, so look for posts describing features of Pear Note, ways to use it, programming, and my take on software in general.
