Luca at the Mac App Store

Category : Technology/LucaAppStore.txt

We’ve released Luca for the Mac App Store, for only US$9.99.

But this is a stand-alone version of Luca (with no access to MySQL or Postgres databases, relying only on the built-in SQLite database to store its accounting data) and since it's in Apple's curated wall-garden, it may lack features or innovations that the non-Apple Store version may sprout, going forward. 

But we hope that offers a great low-cost way to try out Luca, for a start. Do check it out if it fits your needs.

I’ve also released a new Sandboxed version of Liya for the Mac App Store (version 3.0). Now that we’ve learnt how to work with the app Sandbox, it’s time to learn how to work with iCloud.
