Hagenberg, Austria-based Ergonis software has announced the launch of a new brand for Macintosh software called Macility. The goal of the new brand is to “promote easy to use, yet powerful software.”
Macility is a collaboration between VOODOO Personal author Christoph Reichenberger and PopChar Pro author Günther Blaschek. Reichenberger said that Ergonis’ Macility line will “solve problems in a user-friendly, ergonomic way, instead of burying the usability under tons of questionable features.”
VOODOO Personal, easy beat and PopChar Pro are the first products to be distributed as part of the Macility software collection — they were previously distributed by UNI SOFTWARE PLUS, where Reichenberger was a product manager.
VOODOO Personal is a file recovery system that enables Mac users to restore files that have been accidentally deleted or changed in a way that the user would prefer to undo. Easy beat is a music authoring program for the Macintosh that uses the QuickTime Music Architecture (QTMA) to play songs. PopChar Pro pops up a menu of all available characters for a given font, saving you from having to memorize key commands to invoke special characters.
“We will continue to support and improve these products and have great plans and ideas for the future. The first new utility in our macility product line is PopChar X, the Mac OS X sibling of PopChar Pro. I am proud to announce the availability of PopChar Pro for Mac OS X today,” said Reichenberger.
