Today we removed the 2.x version of Posterino from the Mac App Store sale, since a paid upgrade of Posterino is coming and we didn’t feel that we could recommend purchasing the v2 app any more. Especially since there is no way for us to upgrade Mac App Store customers who purchased Posterino within the “grace period” to a free v3 license.

If you like to purchase Posterino right away, please purchase via our store. All purchases of a Posterino v2 license on and after October 01, 2014 will automatically receive a free Posterino v3 license.

If you did purchase Posterino on the Mac App Store and like to re-install or download it again, please have a look at our blog post How do I (re-)install Posterino using Mac App Store? for details.

Also, we can and will create maintenance updates for Posterino 2.x. And even an app in “not on sale” mode on the Mac App Store can receive those updates.

It’s time for a new unveiling – the better and more robust Posterino 3.0. We’re sending you this email because you opted-in to get the latest news on Posterino. And we want you to be the first to taste Posterino’s latest goodies.

You’re probably thinking it has been awhile since you’ve heard from us. That’s because everyone at Zykloid has been busy dreaming up enhanced features for Posterino 3.0. Like any new software, Posterino 3.0 will need some testing before we offer it up to the hungry masses. As a fan of our products, we would like you to be one of our beta testers. You’ll have the exclusive chance to try out Posterino 3.0’s new features, like the circular layout option, before anyone else, and enjoy all the subsequent bragging rights.

Here’s a sneak peak at the new features awaiting your imagination:

- Improved workflow throughout
- Circular layout option
- New templates, frames and backgrounds
- Individual text captions
- Automatic image style settings
- Grid line tools to improve manual placement
- Sleeker user interface with enlarged workspace

Whet your appetite for Posterino 3.0 with some screenshots and sample templates.

Here’s how to be one of the lucky few Posterino 3.0 beta testers:

Spots are limited and will be given out on a first come, first serve basis. You can sign-up now for a test-drive.

There are two caveats though:

1.  We only have room for only a limited number of beta testers. We’ll start with a few and increase as needed.
2.  Posterino 3.0 will run on Mac OS X 10.9.x “Mavericks” or later only.
