Zengobi Launches Universal Version of Curio
RALEIGH, NC — March 29, 2006 — Zengobi today announced the availability of a Universal version of Curio, its award-winning brainstorming and document management application for the Mac. In addition to native support for Power PC and Intel-based Macs, Curio 3.1 includes new features like search term highlighting, idea space hoisting, and improved PDF display options.
"Creating a Universal version of Curio was a straightforward process and, amazingly, we had Curio running natively on Intel-based Macs in under two days," said George Browning, Zengobi's founder. "Apple's Xcode development environment made the process incredibly easy, even when dealing with almost 250,000 lines of code spread across a dozen projects."
"The power of Xcode has given Apple developers the opportunity to quickly and easily deliver native Universal applications for our blazing fast new hardware," said Ron Okamoto, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. "We're delighted to have Zengobi join the rapidly growing community of developers with Universal versions of their applications."
