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

Mac software WorldTimez Desktop

TOKYO (MacHouse) – Pretty much exactly one month ago from now, we started to develop Mac desktop applications again. That’s mostly because we ran out of ideas for iPad applications to develop. Bad news is that we’ve already run out of ideas for Mac applications as well. Well, that’s when we go over a list of applications we’ve developed for a different platform and see if we can port one to the current development platform. And that’s how we’ve ended up with a new software release, which we submitted to Mac App Store about an hour ago.
