[prMac.com] FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Today Bruji released version 4 of their media inventory programs DVDpedia, Bookpedia, CDpedia and Gamepedia. The Pedia programs feature internet search via keywords, USB scanner or iSight on all the Amazon sites as well as numerous international media sites. Features include lender tracking, database statistics and customizable HTML export.
With this free upgrade the Pedias move to a new database format, CoreData, for greater speed. The popular Full Screen view, fully compatible with the Apple Remote, has also received a make-over and now includes a details section, an enhanced search feature and the ability to choose which movie to play if several are linked to the same entry.
Each Pedia program has received a completely re-designed, flexible Add/Edit window for greater customization and control over the information retrieved online. Several new fields have also been added, including 6 additional custom fields to bring the total number of user-definable fields to 10 and a 'Sort Title' field to give users full command over the sorting order of their entries.
Version 4 of the Pedia programs includes a new feature for sharing libraries or single entries over the web with other Pedia users. Users can subscribe to their friends' RSS feeds on any website created by one of the Pedia programs. With one click, users can add individual entries to their library or subscribe to the entire collection to stay up-to-date with the latest additions.
Library organization has gotten a major boost thanks to the introduction of folders. Users can now sort collections and smart collections into folders and sub-folders to catalogue their database even further.
Availability and requirements:
The Pedia programs are shareware ($18 each; bundle prices are available) and can be downloaded from the Bruji website.
Version 4 of the Pedias requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher (version 3.6 is available for users running Mac OS X 10.2.8-10.3.9).
Bruji is a small software development team aiming to provide easy-to-use shareware that people enjoy working with. Function and form have to go side by side in order to create a great application which is why all of Bruji's applications are kept as simple as possible, blending in seamlessly with other Mac programs; all the while being packed with useful, fun and unique features.
