What’s Coming Up Next? – MacHouse Introducing simplyCircled for Mac OS X

Mac software simplyCircled

TOKYO (MacHouse) – I don’t know why, but we’ve been quite productive this month. In fact, we submitted a new desktop application to Mac App Store about half an hour ago. This new software release is called simplyCircled.

simplyCircled is a desktop application that lets you create images of circled letters easily. You’ll get to select the font of a letter that appears inside a colored circle. You can of course fill the inner area of the circle with a color of your choice.

simplyCircled is especially good at consecutively creating images of circled numbers as opposed to letters. You can let the application automatically create images of circled numbers consecutively up to 999. You decide on start and end numbers.
