Version 11 brings 120 features, migration to OS X Cocoa frameworks
Cross-platform small business client and project management tool Studiometry has received what developer Oranged Software calls "probably our biggest change to the app since its initial release." Version 11 of the Windows, iOS, and OS X application ships today with a brand new user interface, adding over 120 features and improvements and finally transitioning to Cocoa on Mac.
Studiometry 11's interface was completely redesigned and rebuilt to be cleaner and more intuitive. A new three-column layout makes navigating data faster. Customizable overviews have also been added to let users instantly see a snapshot of information for a selected client or project.
Tracked projects can now be billed strictly based on their estimated amounts, while still tracking actual work and expenses behind the scenes to calculate costs and profits. The project estimating interface itself is now easier to use as well, with clear explanations of each estimating mode and assistance entering and viewing estimated items.
Studiometry for Mac is now built using Apple's Cocoa Frameworks. The migration provides many advantages over the previous Carbon Frameworks, including full screen support, system spellchecking, and other system services, dependent on OS revision. This transition has improved many of the interface elements as well, making Studiometry an even more solid native Mac app.
Studiometry is available for download today with a free 30-day trial. Studiometry licenses never expire and do not require any type of subscription. New licenses start at $200, with multi-user packs, site licenses, and multi-product bundles available on the Oranged Software store. Upgrades from Studiometry 10.x are $60 per license.
