MacVoices #19209: St. Clair Software’s Jon Gotow on Getting Apps Ready for macOS Catalina

Jon Gotow of St. Clair Software takes a break from coding to discuss the coming transition to the 64-bit macOS Catalina, and what it means for you. What it takes to transition apps from 32-bit to 64-bit, why some apps and developers won’t or can’t make the transition, and what you should expect from developers are all part of our first look at this change that is going to affect everyone who uses a Mac. Jon gives us a status report on all of his apps, shares his thinking on charging for the upgrades, and offers some advice on how to communicate with those who make your mission-critical apps.

MacVoices #19205: Macstock – Lydia Huzij Discusses Her Macstock Film Festival Entry

We finish up our on-site Macstock 2019 coverage in a conversation with Lydia Huzij, who gave us an idea of the power of Notability and LumaFusion with her Macstock Film Festival entry. Lydia’s effort was a video created on-site during the 500th episode taking of Mac Power Users, and captured Macstock in a very unique way. See why Lydia’s creation is so inspiring, and why you should join her in thinking outside the box when creating video.
