Catamount Software officially started in September of 1994.
Catamount Software is essentially a one person operation, but I have some help. The one person being me, Hardy Macia, and I have been writing programs for the Newton since its introduction in October 1993, for the Palm OS since January 1999, for the iPhone since June 2007, and Android since 2010.
The software Catamount Software has produced has received good reviews. Starting way back in 1995 or so MacWeek rated MPG as one of the top 10 Newton shareware programs. MacWorld has reviewed PocketMoney. MacUser gave honorable mentions to PocketMoney and MPG in the best of Newton shareware category. PocketMoney has also received very good reviews in Pen Computing Magazine.
Catamount Software markets products mainly thru the internet and online services. So, we rely on our customers to spread our products to friends and coworkers that do not have internet connections.
A few of the people currently helping me are:
- Quapps Interactive helps out on most graphics design.
- There are many customers who have helped translate programs to their native languages.
- All of my beta testers.
- John Cronin, Ross Lebeau, Eric Ojala, and Peter Oliver are currently interning for me and all of them are doing excellent work.
Catamount Software also does custom/contract work. If your company has a project for iPhone contact me for estimates and availability.
What is a “CATAMOUNT”? A catamount is another name for a mountain lion. Catamounts are extinct in Vermont, but occasional sightings of these large cats are still reported.
