Excellence In Software For Over Ten Years – Only with a Mac

Michael Kamprath’s I see Ewe

As many of you know, Michael Kamprath was the original author of Keyboard Maestro. We acquired it from him in 2004 and since then lots has happened in Michael’s life, including especially getting married and having a baby girl.

Michael’s latest project is an iPhone game, I See Ewe so if you have young kids and would like to see what Michael is up to these days, check it out. It costs $1 and all the ratings are 4-5 stars.

Perhaps a nice Christmas present for the kids?

I think I might follow Michael’s example and write an iPhone game myself - maybe bring back some memories of my old TRS-80 days!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Thanks Peter! I think it's important to point out that I wrote I See Ewe for my 2 year old baby girl, and I have another baby girl on the way who will be playing with it in a 18 months or so. I happy to see that you are keeping Keyboard Maestro alive and think you are taking it in very good direction.

Having written for the trash 80's myself, I can attest the platform has much of the original "blank slate" feeling the early home computers had. However, software development, especially shareware software development, probably will never go back to the way things were in the late 80's and early 90's. (I still remember sending you a check for your "Finger" application you wrote for the Mac) Times have change, mostly due to the ease of developing for common platforms and the ease of distributing software. Apple's App Store creates a unique dynamic for the iPhone platform. I'm still trying to figure it all out, but for sure, its a fun platform to develop for.
