SecureTexts ✅ (works with 10.10 and iOS 8, some UI limitations)
Recipes 🆗 (works with limitations, is yet not ready)
Diary 🆗 (works with limitations, is yet not ready)
ookkeeapp (PRO, MINI) ❌ (sorry, not yet updated but it is usable though)
Umsatz (Pro, Standard, Mini) ✅ (pre-builds of Umsatz 2015 available, you can read more about it here)

I’ve worked my ass off for the last couple of months - 12 to 16 hours a day, seven days a week - to get my apps ready on time.

Most apps support up to four different systems now, including massive changes and differences under and for 10.10 and two different pixel densities. This all had to be tested, adjusted and then tested again.

Except for Umsatz, you can safely use all my apps under 10.10 and I’ve ensured that Umsatz won’t start under Yosemite so that your data is safe.

In case you find any bugs or glitches related to Apple’s latest version of OS X – please let me know.

But please also understand that many things have nothing to do with the apps itself but with the system. Every new version of OS X has been buggy and Yosemite is no exception; not at all…

Editor and Hack - or I have come a long way

LogEngine Image

Today I had to find some line of codes I wrote over a decade ago. I did not find the code but a backup of my very first applications. Yes, that’s right. Application, not app :–)

Should you still own a PPC Mac, running 10.2, you can download Editor and Hack and go down memory lane with me. Looking at them and actually using them on an old iBook G3 was a lot of fun today.

And they both clearly show that I’ve remained true to myself and my roots. I always tried and still try to write very simple, very reduced apps that do one thing and only one thing; as good as possible.

But I also realized another thing: I have not only come a long way but I’ve also gotten old. I started writing those apps almost twelve years ago :–)
