New ShapeShifer, WindowShadeX, FontCard Released

ShapeShifer 2.0, WindowShadeX 3.5 and FontCard 1.2.1 are out from Unsanity.

What is really amazing is the fact that I bought WindowShadeX and ShapeShifter in their infancy, when they cost $7, and Unsanity has not once charged for an upgrade.

WindowShadeX has grown into a mature version of the OS 9 feature "Window Shade." ShapeShifter has filled another void missing in OS X, Kaleidoscope from OS 9. Version 2.0 of ShapeShifer added a lot of new theme capabilities. My favorite themes are the ones that are dark, for those late nights that I do not want to stare at a stark white screen.

FontCard has been updated by leaps and bounds in its short history. It now works in Carbon and Cocoa apps, showing not only a WYSIWYG font menu, but also if it is TT, OT, or PS. FontCard has really sped up my time finding the font I want.

The Mac community needs more developers like Unsanity. I am glad - and shocked - that Apple has not snatched up their tools, like they have with so many others and added them to the OS. I thought after 3 years that WindowShadeX would have shown up built into Mac OS X. But no, it is still developed by a 3rd party that keeps pushing the envelope of what can be done.
