David Zizza has published a great overview of the many options available in the Mac software license management market.
[LicenseKeeper] truly evokes the Mac-ness of software interfaces – Drag and Drop, Spot Light, Toolbar, great use of icons, easy-to-use, etc. An awesome feature is the Attachments, which allows to add highlighted email (such as registrations and receipts) from Apple’s Mail program and copies the email to the application, even parsing the serial number and automatically adding it to the field. How cool is that?
David gives LicenseKeeper very favorable marks — preferring it over all the others, save the lack of printed reports.
While LicenseKeeper does have rudimentary printing capabilities for human-readable attachments (email, text files, PDFs, etc), I had to make hard decisions as to what was to be left out of the 1.0 version. Otherwise, the software would never have been released. But, that’s why we have updates and new versions (stay tuned).
What’s your most needed enhancement to LicenseKeeper? Let me know.
