It could be said that the Macworld Expo recently held in San Francisco is such a precious chance for series of new software to debut for Mac platform.
Also on this trend, IDG has also considered Macworld show as the DEMO conference when this company has introduced new products, most of which centered on the iPhone. IDG identified each as the “best of show” for the conference.
One of the most noticeable apps in the conference is Yapper which is considered as “Your App Maker,” to help users create an application for the Apple iTunes App Store. Using this app, it is possible for users to access the Web app, which appeared to offer drag-and-drop functionality for creating something like a mobile RSS reader.
Another new product shown in this conference is QuickOffice Connect Mobile Suite which is said to be based on the existing Office Suite, with the ability to “connect” to Apple MobileMe, Google Docs, Box.net, and Dropbox. Previously, Quickoffice Connect was marketed as a standalone product. This app allows users to view, create, and edit Microsoft Word and Excel files, from the ’97 to 2008 versions.
Another company considering this conference as a DEMO show is Carina Software which has recently launched launched its SkyVoyager iPhone application last year, which, put simply, is Google Sky Map for the iPhone platform. Thanks to SkyVoyager, users can check out information on Jupiter, for example, as well as other celestial bodies. More interesting, magic can even happen if SkyVoyager is combined with the company’s SkyFi serial controller.
SkyFi can control automated telescopes with a serial port, and the SkyVoyager app, when connected, serves as a control application. Search for “Mars” in the app, and, undocked, a series of arrows will guide you to the Red Planet. But when connected to SkyFi, the telescope itself rotates to align with the planet.
