Oranged.net Software, a graphics design/software company, has released Messageman 1.0, a new product for Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X that works as a home messaging system.
Tom Iwaniec of Oranged.net Software said MessageMan is designed to replace the notepad and stickies on the frig door. Set up an account and mail box for each user, and you’re good to go.
“If you get a phone call, and the family member it’s for isn’t available, use MessageMan, and when they get home they’ll know where to look,” Iwaniec said. “Maybe you need to go somewhere and nobody else is home. No problem. They’ll know where you went because you left a message with MessageMan’s Public Box.”
You don’t even need to log in to see if you have new messages. Just open the application and check on the fly with the “scoreboard.” MessageMan uses “strong encryption” methods to keep messages private, Iwaniec said. MessageMan mailboxes have various customizable options, including automatic speaking of messages, auto-logout, deletion of read messages after a period of time, and more.
The shareware product is US$10. You can download MessageMan from the Oranged.net Software.
