Oh Capitan, my Capitan… Compatibility overview for OS X El Capitan

By Company, CoverScout, iSale, Mail Designer, MediaCentral, SongGenie, Spot Maps, Stationery Pack, tizi


OS X El Capitan is now available as a Public Beta. We’ve put together a short compatibility overview for you. Here’s a small summary of our experiences so far.

  • Mail Designer: To send or not to send, that is the question. Don’t worry with the latest El Capitan beta, Mail Designer 2 and Mail Designer Pro should work fine. More details here
  • Spot Maps: Keep a clear overview of your networks. Spot Maps works seamlessly with El Capitan.
  • CoverScout & SongGenie: Bring some color to your music library. In our early tests, both CoverScout and SongGenie worked without issue with El Capitan and the latest version of iTunes.
  • Greeting Cards: Happy belated Birthday! Greeting Cards should work with the very latest El Capitan beta, however, since the Apple Mail app still seems to be changing quite a bit, we recommend holding off until the final version of El Capitan ships.
  • iSale: Sell on eBay. iSale also supports El Capitan.
  • tizi for Mac, TV for Mac and MediaCentral: Get your popcorn ready! Both tizi apps and MediaCentral will shine El Capitan.
  • The Tube: Upgrade for more TV enjoyment. If you’re using The Tube, we recommend you upgrade to tizi for Mac for El Capitan — not only will you be fully compatible with Apple’s latest OS, you’ll also get to enjoy new features like visual timeshift, recording, editing, and share features.

iSale express template: The votes are in!

By iSale

iSale express 1.0.2 – including two new template choices – is now available! Existing customers can also download this free update by choosing “iSale express > Check for updates” from the menu bar.

Last week we asked you to vote for a new iSale express template. Thanks for all your votes! This is the first time we’ve done something like this and it was great to see so many of you participate…

This was a neck-and-neck race, so we’ve double-checked the results. It really was incredibly close:

  1. Black Grid: 33 %
  2. Plain White: 31 %
  3. For Sale: 16 %
  4. Paper Card: 10 %
  5. Blue Smoke: 8 %
  6. Galaxy Swirl: 2 %

And the winner is:

As you can see, there were two clear favorites, but Black Grid narrowly beat the runner-up to become the next iSale express template!

But wait! There’s one more thing…

Since the votes were really so close, we’ve decided to give you not just one, but two new templates in iSale express. We’re pleased to announce, that with the next update, we’ll add Black Grid and Plain White, bringing the total number of templates to 5.

Here are the 2 new templates, as chosen by you guys:


We plan on releasing this iSale express update with two new templates sometime this fall, so watch this space…

Get selling in seconds with iSale express

By Company, iSale

eBay as a service is evolving, and so are the ways in which people use it. What was for a long time a way of easily selling second-hand items you had lying around, has now become a way for businesses to reach new customers.

Over the years eBay has grown and added layers of complexity and detail, which provide buyers with ever more information to be able to make good buying decisions. For sellers, however, this doesn’t always make things easier.

That’s why today we’re releasing iSale express, billed as the lightweight and lightning fast way to create eBay auctions. People who want to sell items occasionally and with a minimum of fuss can load up iSale express and start selling in seconds. Simply choose one of three classy templates, add your own photos and write a description. Your auctions will be automatically updated so you can follow your bids in one place.

iSale express uses the same engine as iSale 5.6, meaning it automatically pulls the correct categories and item specifics directly from eBay. Whilst iSale 5.6 offers innovative features such as the Research Assistant or the ability to use multiple accounts, iSale express offers a basic feature set so there’s no learning curve to selling on eBay.

So if you’re looking to make some ready cash, you now have two great options. Sell in seconds with iSale express, or start making your fortune with iSale 5.6.

Important changes coming to eBay and iSale

By iSale

Over the coming days eBay are going to be changing the way auctions are created. In the past, for example, users could only distinguish between items that were new or used. The new auctions will have more options, so you can better describe the precise conditions of your items. This means fewer customer queries and more satisfaction.

Due to this change from eBay, we’ve just released iSale 5.6.2, which deals with the new auction options. Existing iSale 5 users can download the update for free. However, we’re not able to offer a technical solution for users of iSale 4 or earlier.

With that in mind, we’re dropping the price of an upgrade to iSale 5. All our iSale 4 users will be receiving an email in due course. The switchover from eBay takes place on July 27th, and our offer applies then for the next two months.

Anyone who’s wondering what the improvements have been made in iSale 5 should check out our latest features page. There you can see the benefits of our Research Assistant, iSale mobile and more layout options. You can even download the demo and try it all out for yourself.

Of course, if you have any questions, we’d be happy to hear from you. Simply email and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

New for the spring season, iSale now has a fresh feel.

By iSale

iSale 5.6 has just been released, and it’s never looked slimmer or quicker. Between sluggish loading times and awkward switching between panels, we felt there was room for improvement. We’ve fixed bugs and really sorted out the Facebook integration.

Existing iSale 5 versions already use Facebook, but we’ve improved it so you can share your auctions right on your Facebook wall. Choose your favorite iSale auction design styles and put them up for everyone to see.

Through rigorous regimes and testing workouts, iSale now works up to 200% quicker for frequent users.

If you already have iSale 5, you can upgrade to iSale 5.6 for free. Owners of older versions of iSale can also upgrade to the new version for a discounted price.
