[prMac.com] UDUPI, India - Global Delight today released a major update to their Volume Booster app, Boom, a Macworld Best of Show 2011 Winner. Since its release at the Macworld Expo 2011, Boom has been well received by all Mac and Music enthusiasts alike. The USP of the application lies in its being packed with powerful features yet retaining its simplicity and uniqueness. This light and visually appealing application has found use not only among those users who wish to pump up their system speakers but also among hearing impaired users who wish to enjoy music and movies on their system.
One of the unique features of Boom is the ability to boost the audio files residing in the iTunes library or from the disk and save them in the format supported by an iPhone/iPod touch. Boom thus allows users to enjoy their newly boosted files on their iPhone/iPod touch as well. Most of the users have an issue with videos having very low volume. It greatly diminishes the movie watching experience or defeats the purpose for which the video was made. With the latest update, users now need not struggle with low volume in video files. Using Boom, they can now boost the audio of their video files and save them, thus getting rid of low volume issues and improving the experience.
Another major improvement is the reduction in CPU utilization and memory usage. It has been reduced by more than 50%. Also to do away with the tedious task of adding single files for boosting, users can now drag and drop entire folders to be boosted using Boom. As for those who were looking for an option to change the Channel Balance in the Sound Preferences, support has been provided for the same.
A lot of thought has gone in this update where customer feedback and suggestions have been taken into consideration. Thus users will be pleasantly surprised that they can now mute any audio notification that was earlier present by default while adjusting the sound using Boom.
Shriek for Facebook which has been integrated within Boom adds a fun element to it. With Shriek, users can test the power of their voice with the loudest shriek getting the better score and being awarded a title. Users can compete and challenge friends on Facebook using this app and compare scores both locally and globally.
* Mac OS X(R) 10.5.8 or later
