New at 71Squared

Posted by Tom & Mike on Tuesday, December 8th, 2015

We've been incredibly busy over the last few months at 71Squared and have finally found the time to tell you all about it!

We'll start things off with the most exciting announcement we have ever made!

71Squared is now the proud owner of two more amazing apps!

Tell me more...

We've had the chance to work with Realmac Software over the last year which has been fantastic as we are huge fans. Recently Realmac have decided to focus on their core products such as Rapid Weaver, Typed.com and Clear which has in turn provided us with the opportunity to take over the future development and support of Typed and Deep Dreamer.

Having been regular users of Typed and heavily involved in the development of Deep Dreamer, taking on these products felt like a natural progression and would allow us to add some exciting new features we knew everyone would love.

Typed becomes Focused

One of the key decisions we made early on was that we would need to rename Typed. Realmac have launched a great blogging platform called Typed.com, worth checking out, and we didn't want there to be any confusion going forward.

This was a brave decision given how complex it can be to change the name of a product already on the market, but we felt the effort was necessary to help give the typed app its own identity moving forward.

So with the change in name we have released a new version on the Mac App Store called Focused as well as a new version that can be purchased directly from our site.

As part of this transition we made sure that anyone who had already bought Typed or Deep Dreamer could still use the apps. All current users need to do is visit our license page and use the same email address they used during their purchase to then receive their new activation key.

If you've not downloaded the latest version of Deep Dreamer or Focused be sure to download them from the links below. This will ensure you continue to get updates automatically.

New licensing for Glyph and Particle Designer

While transitioning Typed and Deep Dreamer we decided to also update and improve the license scheme used in GD and PD. If you download the latest versions you will also need to request your new activation key using our license page.

Apply your license

Once you have downloaded the latest version of your app and requested your license through our license page, simply launch the app and follow the on-screen prompts.

The Future

Now the dust is settling after the transition from Realmac to 71Squared we are starting to draw up plans for ALL of our products and are excited to start pushing out updates. We'd like to say a massive thanks to everyone that has taken the time to suggest new features they'd like to see.
