Out of the AppStore

As of today, none of my apps are available through the Mac App Store. I have removed them from sale indefinitely. I have been pondering at this decision for a while, but after consideration it is my belief that App Stores are a cancer in the software industry and their current form should be destroyed. It is up to lawmakers to do that, but as they won’t, it is also up to developers to take action against these App Stores.

Freelancestation 1.36 Released

FreelanceStation 1.36 is now available for download on the main site and on the Mac App Store. This update ensures compatibility with macOS Ventura, fixes several issues and adds a new feature to simplify project creation for those projects that always start with the same tasks: task templates. This release also switches versioning to major.minor, an old versioning scheme that doesn’t put an emphasis in micro versions for bug fixes only.

Lunarsight Acquired

Today, LunarSight has been acquired by Oval Software. The new developer will carry the app forward and is eager to implement new features. Update: I had been developing LunarSight for 2 years, and before that the project was going to be a macOS application, much different and complex that the iOS app it ended up being. While it wasn’t without its complexities, the end result wasn’t entirely what I initially set out to do.

Freelancestation 2021.7 Released

FreelanceStation 2021.7 has been released. This is the last minor version release this year. The main change is that tasks added to a project can now be duration-less, which makes them easier to work with for most workflows. To make them duration-less, simply don’t set any duration. There’s another minor change, mostly aesthetic. The app icon background is now lighter, without the strong bottom shade. A free trial of FreelanceStation can be downloaded from its main page.

FreelanceStation 2021.4 Released

This release adds File Links, a feature where you can link files to a project from within FreelanceStation for easy access while working. How this works is very simple. You drag your files to your project or you add them from the File Links inspector in the sidebar. This makes centralising your work on FreelanceStation convenient. Then to open a file you can select it in the inspector and click the Open button, or double click on the list of File Links.

FreelanceStation 2021.3 Released

This release fixes a couple subtle bugs, but most importantly, it adds time rounding and coalescing. With rounding enabled, when you create a new invoice or estimate, each labour item taken from a task will have its duration rounded according to the selected rounding rule (configured from Preferences). With coalescing enabled, after a task is stopped, the adjacent time entries are merged into one if the time distance between them is less than the configured cut-off.

PopDo 2021.1 Released

I just published an update for PopDo that fixes some reported issues related to the use of NSPopover for the main window. The thing with NSPopover is that it wasn’t really made for opening from an NSStatusItem in the menu bar. I had considered moving the implementation from the popover to a normal window for some time, but finally decided to do it after a bug report from a user that collected several issues related to the use of the popover.
