Essential Apple Podcast 148: BeLight – no need to feel sheepish

This week the news was of course dominated by the new iPhones, Apple Watch 5, and all that. As Simon doesn’t have any of those he doesn’t really have anything more to say on the matter… but fear not! This week he is joined by Tanya Vert from BeLight Software the makers of Live Home 3D, Swift Publisher, Amadine, ArtText, Letters, Image Tricks and more. They talk about the development and launch of Amadine, the future of BeLight’s applications, Beta testing, the need to “draw a line in the sand”, why they chose to recently “sunset” some apps and generally have a good old natter. And after we stopped recording Tanya kindly gifted us four licences for Amadine to give away!
