iStorm sports a one-button interface that enables users to share documents for collaborative editing. It also supports Rendezvous, the zero-configuration networking technology in Mac OS X 10.2. “When a user hosts a document, others on the local area network will see it immediately in the join list without any hassle,” explained the developers.
iStorm can recognize HTTP links and activate them, and provides real time updates of editied documents. It supports drag and drop inline images ind JPG, GIF and TIFF formats. iStorm also features a “Scratch Pad” and an “emotion conveying chat module.”
The software is distributed with a basic US$19.95 license that enables up to two users registered with the same serial number to collaborate together. Additional licenses must be purchased for larger groups. The software requires Mac OS X 10.2.
MathGameHouse also indicated that early adopters of iStorm will get a free update to iChalkboard, a net-enabled chalkboard application, and babyTex, an integrated TeX interface for creating mathematical equations.
