LicenseKeeper Preview

It’s been awhile since I last updated you on the progress of LicenseKeeper development. Things have been moving forward quite nicely.

Since the last update, the LicenseKeeper icon design was finished by Mike Rohde. Working with Mike is always fun and I’m very happy with the results:

Starting last week, I now have the time to really polish up the LicenseKeeper user interface. As a small sample here’s a before and after comparison of the LicenseKeeper products source list:



The subtle change from a multi-column products source list to a composite cell source list cleans up the look and feel quite a bit to my eyes. The change also serves to simplify the table’s sorting. I really didn’t see a need to sort by version number since version numbers don’t make sense across products.

I also added in a nice gradient highlight for selections. Again another subtle feature many modern OS X applications are now featuring.

Hopefully, these changes help provide a more pleasant user experience while you manage your software license information.

    Looks cool — I haven’t had a look at the new icon for a while now, so it’s nice to see it again. UI looks clean and crisp too.

    Now I need to write a weblog post on creating it one of these days. 🙂
