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

Mac OS X software FonVee

TOKYO (MacHouse) – We thought we switched over to iOS and game development a few months ago. Well, we are pretty much back to Mac OS X software development again. In fact, we submitted our second software title of the month to Mac App Store several hours ago. This new software title is called FonVee.

FonVee is similar to our existing software title called FontsView and FontsView2. FonVee lets you create images out of styled text, utilizing font typefaces. Bold and italic are most common font typefaces. There are more like condensed, light, medium, oblique and slated. So FonVee lets you use these font typefaces to make beautiful styled text. And you can save it as an image file with a click of a toolbar button without letting the application prompt you to name a file. If you click on Export button, FonVee will just send a text image to your shared folder. So you can continue to work on your styled text without interruption.

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

Gekko is a desktop application that lets you design navigation bars and tab bars for iOS applications with ease. You can use your own image or pick one from a built-in library of 33 texture images to design a navigation bar or a tab bar image. Also, you can create color gradation maps with Gekko to design a UI image. Let Gekko export UI images for both the Retina display and non-Retina display. Use Gekko to generate Objective-C code so that you can reproduce the same looks of an UI image with iPhone Simulator and iOS devices.
