The Mac version of Euro Coin Collection is today on the Mac App Store!
The new app has all the features of the iPad and iPhone versions, with the advantage to be able to view all the virtual album at a glance on a 27 inch iMac.
You’ll need OS X Snow Leopard to run the app, while Lion or Mountain Lion are required to use iCloud features and Facebook or Twitter sharing.
The app has also been enhanced for the MacBook Pro with Retina display.
At the same time the apps for iPhone and iPad have been updated to versions 1.6.1 e 1.2.1.
The 2 Euro commemorative coin that Monaco will issue in december to celebrate the “20 years since the UN Accession” has been added.
There’s also a new “bounce effect” added to scrolling UI elements, an effect related to the “inertial scrolling” that makes user experience on iOS devices so smooth and pleasant, elaborated by the dutch designer Bas Ording.
If you read the Steve Jobs biography you’ll remember the episode in which Jobs met the designer in the lobby of Apple headquarters and he hired him on the fly after viewing a brief demo of Bas’ ideas to improve OS X user interface.
Bas is still at Apple and they’re going great in my opinion: the recent presentation of iOS 7 is a clear demonstration of the continuous innovation process pursued by the Cupertino-based company.
Enjoy the Mac version and the “bouncing” album! 😉
