I would like to thank everyone who replied or emailed in response to my original blog posting. I received almost 200 comments and emails and am unfortunately not able to reply to everyone individually.The posting was intended be a general indication of our plans for StoryBook Creator, not an official announcement, which is why it did not include any specifics on the exact date when StoryBook Creator Macintosh would be available. Here are some of the more common questions:
1. Which Macintosh computers will be supported? We are planning to support Mac OS 10.5 Leopard and above. Apple made certain changes to their operating system with version 10.5 that make this the right version to support. If you are not using OS 10.5 or latter, you will need to upgrade your system.
2. Will Memory manager also be available for the Macintosh? At this time, we are planning to integrate StoryBook Creator Macintosh with iPhoto. iPhoto is a free application that provides is an effective, basic package for organizing photos, although it does not include all of the features that are available in Memory Manager.
3. How do I become a beta tester? We plan to fully test StoryBook Creator Mac prior to release and will identify beta testers next year. Beta testers will be selected to provide specific feedback. We may not be able to select all volunteers. If you have volunteered, we will keep your name and email address on file.
