Bringing Axure RP to the Mac wasn’t easy, but we understood how important it is to our customers to have a prototyping tool that ran on Macs without virtualization.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 13, 2010
Axure Software Solutions announced the availability of Axure RP 5.6 for Mac. Previously, the popular web site and application prototyping tool was available only for Windows.
This release brings Axure RP natively to the Mac with all of the key features of its PC counterpart, including wireframing tools, HTML prototype and Word specification generation, and collaboration. It also includes enhancements that improve the usability and make the look and feel consistent for Mac users. These are highlighted on the Axure RP for Mac Overview page: http://www.axure.com/mac-overview.aspx.
“Bringing Axure RP to the Mac wasn’t easy, but we understood how important it is to our customers to have a prototyping tool that ran on Macs without virtualization,” said Victor Hsu, president of Axure Software Solutions. “We also took the opportunity to enhance the visual design and usability of Axure RP. Overall, our customers seem very happy with the result.” Axure hired Mel Lim Design to create the user interface graphics for the Mac version, which recently won a gold award in the Creativity 40th Media Competition for graphical user interface. Hsu also stated that the Mac version has had an immediate and significant impact on revenue.
Axure has taken a generous approach to the licensing by making the licenses cross platform while keeping the price for a single user license at $589. Each license can be used on two computers so a customer can choose to use Axure RP on a PC and a Mac without an additional cost. In addition, the Mac version is a free upgrade for customers who purchased Axure RP after February 1, 2008. Other customers can purchase a maintenance renewal for $149 per license to use the Mac version. A full-featured 30-day trial is also available at http://www.axure.com/downloads.aspx.
