Parliant releases voice announcement software for Mac users

Parliant has announced the release of its new voice messaging product for Mac users, Echoes. Functioning on a local network, users can contact other Macs running Echoes and send a voice message instantly, without the need for "dialing" like Skype or FaceTime. To send a voice announcement, one selects "Announce" from the Echoes icon found in the menu bar. Users can announce to both individuals or groups, and quickly reply to the sender of the last received announcement. Keyboard shortcuts for sending and replying can be set, and the last announcement made can be re-sent without re-recording. Priced at $10, Echoes is available through the App Store.

Amberlight 1.2 released, adds publishing to online gallery feature

Escape Motions has released an update for its computer generated art-making software, Amberlight. Suitable for both novice and advanced artists, the program allows users to create colorful designs by experimenting with various fields and colors, as well as manipulating layers and backgrounds. Amberlight v1.2 includes a new publishing feature, that shares artwork with an online gallery. Files created with the app are now associated, and various bug fixes have been included. Its new Tint Rotation button allows users to set the tint to go from the top to the bottom of the canvas, or from left to right and vice versa. Priced at $30, Amberlight is available through the App Store.
