os x yosemiteNow that OS X Yosemite Public Beta is out, you’re probably wondering which apps work with Yosemite so you can start testing Apple’s latest and greatest. The good news: most of your equinux apps already work with OS X Yosemite.

Here’s the full rundown:

Work great

  • CoverScout
  • Greeting Cards / Stationery Pack
  • iSale 5
  • Mail Designer 2
  • Mail Designer Pro 2
  • MediaCentral
  • SongGenie 2 (one minor font issue will be fixed soon)
  • Spot Maps
  • tizi for Mac
  • TV for Mac
  • The Tube
  • VPN Tracker 8

VPN Tracker note

Apple has changed a fair bit under the hood for networking, but we’re offering VPN Tracker 8 beta as a free download during the beta for all Yosemite users. Your existing connections will be copied into VPN Tracker 8 automatically, allowing you to test Yosemite with your VPN connections. For more details, head over to the VPN Tracker 8 beta page.

That wraps up our first Yosemite overview — if you have any question, just send us an email or get in touch on twitter.

We’ve tamed Mountain Lion

By SongGenie, The Tube

With so many equinux apps to get ready for Apple’s latest and greatest, we’ve been working hard so that everything is as ready as soon as possible. Here’s a quick rundown of all the app updates we’ve just released.

Note to Mac App Store customers: as always we have to rely on Apple to review updates to our Mac App Store apps and this is currently taking a bit longer than usual. We hope that the App Store review team will be able to approve our Mac App Store updates shortly. If you have any questions, please contact our support team and we’ll find a solution.

Here are the details on our Mountain Lion updates:

  • iSale – we released 5.8.7 to tackle a couple of  issues with Mountain Lion and now it’s all systems go! We have also submitted the update to Apple and it should hopefully be available for our Mac App Store customers soon.
  • CoverScoutSongGenie – our MusicLovers apps are both running smoother than ever on OS X 10.8. We’ve fixed an issue with existing cover thumbnails not appearing, so it’s all systems go in the music world!
  • Mail Designer – today we released Mail Designer 1.2.3. This new update will ensure that all our newsletter creators and mail superstars now work correctly with changes in Apple Mail. A few things have been moved around in 10.8 and as Mail Designer and Stationery Pack both work so closely with Apple Mail, this update is important to ensure they’re all on the same page.
  • Stationery Pack – the same goes for Stationery Pack. Stationery Pack browser 2.9.4 keeps everything working smoothly to ensure that all your templates are ready to go from either the Stationery Pack app itself or from within Mail.
  • The Tube – also gets a little shine and polish and is ready for Mountain Lion.
  • VPN Tracker – works with Mountain Lion, however we are still investigating a DNS issue with Apple.

We pushed updates for nearly all our Mac apps over the last week (shoutout to our amazing developers for all their work) and we hope you’re enjoying your favorite equinux apps with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion!

Euro 2012 in the sun? Hello tizi!

By Company, The Tube, tizi, TubeStick

Quite honestly, what better way is there to watch some of the best football players in world battle it out than in the sun with friends? The problem is that this is only really possible in beer or pub gardens and if we don’t want to be squashed next to a pile of sweaty men, or have to queue for ages just to find a place to sit, then we end up watching it inside. Still enjoying it with friends, but no sunshine on our faces. Of course there’s always barbecues or garden parties but it’s not often we know someone with a TV outside.

However, without being too overdramatic, thanks to tizi it’s not going to be a problem this year! Hoorah! All our lucky tizi users can just grab their iPad (or iPhone) and their tizi, sit in the sunshine and watch the game. Problem. Definitely. Solved.

Here at equinux our team is from all over Europe – let’s hope we can stay friends throughout the tournament!
