Empower Pro Phone, an Internet phone application now in beta testing, has been updated to version 1.0b4. The update purportedly improves start-up time, as well as adds minor enhancements and fixes some bugs.
Empower Pro Phone lets you have real-time voice communication with any other Empower Pro Phone user — it’s a Mac only app. Susan Fougerousse of Empower Pro said that final releases of the product would support both Mac OS 9.x and Mac OS X.
The latest beta can be downloaded (a 153k file) at the product Web site. Pre-orders are being taken for the product. You can order a copy for US$9.95 and save $20 off the regular price. All purchases include one year of free updates.
