Booxter 2.0 released
Deep Prose Software has released Booxter 2.0, an update to the software designed to help track collections of books, music, movies, and comic books on Macs. Booxter supports both handheld and wireless barcode scanners, as well as Apple's iSight video cameras to quickly add large numbers of items to a collection. The update adds support for managing libraries of music, movies, and comics, according to the company. Booxter is priced at $50, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later. The software will also support Apple's forthcoming Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, once the operating system ships later this month. All users who purchased Booxter licenses in 2007 will receive free updates, while other Booxter customers will receive coupons to upgrade at a discount.
The latest release of Booxter increases performance with an updated database that supports larger libraries, and the entire interface is remodeled to better display information about the items in a collection. Booxter 2.0 also features an updated filter view, as well as a new tag view.
Deep Prose Software also announced that it is offering USB and Bluetooth barcode scanners from its online store, which work with Booxter to speed the cataloging process of collections.
