Black Ink From A Red Pen

March 10th, 2007

With all the excitement surrounding Red Sweater’s acquisition of MarsEdit two weeks ago, it’s hard to believe there is yet another product rapidly approaching its public unveiling.

The name of the product is “Black Ink,” and it’s coming very soon! I just need to put some finishing touches on the registration system, and fix a couple small bugs. The image above is not the actual icon (thankfully) but the red pen comes directly from the shiny new icon, which is waiting patiently to make its debut.

Curious? I’ll give you a hint, it’s not a blog editor :) And it’s not a news aggregator. It’s a classy yet fun application, so it will fit perfectly in the Red Sweater lineup of products. I think it will be a good product to provide balance over the next several months to the work I’m going to be doing on MarsEdit. I’ll be putting a lot of time into MarsEdit, but also spending time on Black Ink and my other applications to “keep things fresh.” I find this kind of multi-tasking makes me overall a lot more productive.

Stay tuned!

    Is this The Cocoa Application Formerly Implemented In Cocoa-Java?

    It”™s a feed editor! No, wait! A blog aggregator!

    Jesper: Indeed.

  4. Steve Streza Says:

    Man! I just bought MarsEdit, like, yesterday, and here I am finding myself having to give you my money again. :P

  5. Jesper Says:

    Steve: Don’t tell anyone, but I think purchases are optional this time around. New times, my friend.

  6. Daniel Jalkut Says:

    Shh! Jesper, pipe it! Purchases are currently, and will remain for the foreseeable future, completely mandatory!

    Do you get some sort of sick pleasure by teasing us like this?

  8. Daniel Jalkut Says:

    Greg: But of course! Bwahahaha! :)

    It’s interesting. You made a teaser on Saturday. You know, a lot of developers are concerned about when to release. But now, they also have to think about when to tease!

  10. Daniel Jalkut Says:

    Hmm – Takaaki good point. Of course I didn’t really think about it. Maybe I should have!

  11. Joachim Bengtsson Says:

    I’m happy as long as it’s not YANT – Yet Another Note Taker / organizer / clippings organizer.

  12. Jack Says:

    Black ink? Maybe something to keep track of finances?

    Or maybe its for people to typography/calligraphy fetishes.

    OR it’s a full screen text editor. That would be innovative.
