MacVoices #11101: Paul Kafasis of Rogue Amoeba Sounds Off on Piezo and the Mac App Store

Paul Kafasis, CEO of Rogue Amoeba, takes time out from a busy launch of their new audio recording app, Piezo, to talk about how it channels some of the power of their flagship Audio Hijack Pro in a more approachable format. Piezo makes it easy to capture virtually any audio from your Mac’s applications with the click of a button, and save it in a variety of useful format. This is Rogue Amoeba’s first foray into the Mac App Store; Paul discusses the experience, why they wanted to be in the App Store, and their approach to the challenge, and how it worked out. Piezo’s interface design, why it released as 1.0.1, Paul’s thoughts on the state of the App Store, and their presence at are all part of the story.
