Webshots, which makes photo wallpaper and screensavers, have confirmed that they’ve stopped development for the Mac.
“As of May 3, 2001, Webshots is no longer developing the Webshots Desktop software for the Macintosh platform,” Andrea (who didn’t give her last name) in technical support told MacCentral. “Also, the existing version of the Webshots Desktop software for the Mac will no longer available for download. We will, however, provide limited support for existing Macintosh Webshots users.”
No reason was given for the decision. In fact, the choice to quit developing for the Mac is a total reversal of the company’s previous position. In February Webshots said that they would develop their Web site photo album software for the Mac in a series of preview releases over the next several months.
Webshots officials said that they were “working hard to provide a feature-rich Webshots Desktop client for the Macintosh.” Their “highest priorities” were screensavers and Mac OS X support.
