Clipstart 1.5

Today I released Clipstart 1.5 for direct download customers and removed the previous version of Clipstart from the Mac App Store. Even though I’ve written about leaving the Mac App Store several times, actually pulling the trigger was difficult. But I believe it’s the right thing for my app, right now.

Clipstart 1.5 is still $29. Changes for this release:

  • Now requires Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. Please do not upgrade to this version if you are running 10.5 or 10.6.

  • Added "Consolidate" command for finding videos that have not been imported or duplicates outside the library.

  • Added AppleScript support for uploading videos. See the help menu for scripting examples.

  • Improved performance throughout the app, especially with importing and refreshing video thumbnails.

  • Improved error message when failing to import all videos from a camera.

  • Fixed tags field on Add Folder dialog not resetting tags value after an import.

  • Support for Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion's Gatekeeper security.

If you've been thinking about buying Clipstart but were on the fence before, I'll throw in a discount for you. Use coupon code MANTONBLOG to save 20%.
