"After many years of delivering quality training tutorials via ScreenCastsOnline, I'm delighted to be able to expand the reach of my videos to so many parts of the world - not just the English speaking countries. Apple have had great success bringing their products to market in China and South America, and SCOtutor for Lion has language support built right in for these new, emerging markets. By publishing through the Apple Mac App Store, the distribution and e-commerce difficulties of dealing with these distant markets are removed, enabling me to focus on what's really important - creating and producing the best Mac, iPhone and iPad video training available." - Don McAllister
