Rampell Software, LLC has released AlwaysONline X. The software works with America Online and several other modem-based Internet Service Providers (ISPs). AlwaysONline X prevents you from being disconnected due to inactivity. This new release is the first version to support Mac OS X.
The software is self-configuring; you don’t need to do anything to get it to work. It requires Mac OS X 10.1 or higher. If you’re using AOL you’ll also need an OS X-native version of the AOL software, obviously. Rampell Software reports that it’s also been tested successfully with EarthLink and AT&T’s dial-up services.
AlwaysONline X costs US$18.95 to register. Users of previous versions can upgrade for $13.95.
