[prMac.com] San Jose, California - TheMacBundles December bundle, released earlier this week, includes Sheep Systems' BookMacster, the Master Bookmarks Manager App for the Mac. The bundle of fourteen Mac apps, with a retail value of $474 USD, is available now for $49.95 USD.
Just in time for this news is an update, BookMacster 1.9, which can push bookmarks into Apple's new iCloud service. "As users switch from MobileMe to iCloud, many are finding that their favorite third-party bookmarks syncing app, which worked with MobileMe, cannot push changes into iCloud," says Sheep Systems' Chief Engineer Jerry Krinock. "We figured out how to do it last week, and the result is BookMacster 1.9. Safari bookmarks are no longer isolated in iCloud."
Dubbed "The bookmarks master for the Mac", BookMacster merges and manages bookmarks in Safari, Firefox, Google Chrome, Camino, iCab, Opera and OmniWeb, and on the web with Delicious, Pinboard, and Google Bookmarks. When used with a file-syncing service in the cloud such as Dropbox(TM) or Jungle Disk(TM), BookMacster takes cross-browser bookmark syncing on the road to any Mac. BookMacster keeps bookmarks alphabetized (sorted), verified, and checked for duplicates. BookMacster supports tags, comments, and shortcuts. BookMacster users can add bookmarks directly from within browsers, and access all bookmarks while in any app, using a keyboard shortcut, status item ("menulet"), Dock menu, menu items in Firefox, or a Toolbar button in Google Chrome. (A Firefox Add-On and Google Chrome Extension are included in the BookMacster package and installed automatically.)
"I like TheMacBundles because its founder Steve Becker really does run it, as he calls it, like a 'Farmers Market'. Costs are low and so users get a really great value" says Krinock, Sheep Systems' Chief Engineer. "It's almost like a cooperative among developers." The other thirteen apps in the bundle are Bevy, CrossOver Games Mac, iDeal CRM, iDupe and Calibrate Bundle, iMedia Converter, iTube Studio, Macintosh Explorer, maComfort Premium, Slink, SuperCal, Super Flexible File Synchronizer Pro, and Yummy FTP.
Bookmacster And Bookdog:
BookMacster is the replacement for Sheep Systems' legacy app, Bookdog. "You can only add a limited number of stories on to an old house," explains Chief Engineer Jerry Krinock. "It was time to move on." Bookdog licensees receive a discount when purchasing a BookMacster license.
Pricing and Availability:
Thoughtful of people whose Mac time sometimes gets interrupted by real life, BookMacster allows three activations of its 3-day free trial period. The BookMacster license included in TheMacBundles December bundle for $49.95 USD is the same full license which is available from BookMacster's store for $22.95 USD, with the same features, support, and future upgrade rights. TheMacBundles also offers "Build Your Own Bundle", which allows users to build their own low-cost customized bundle with as few as five apps.
