Question 4 - AOL Desktop for Mac 1.0 is Missing My Favorite Feature
This is only the beginning - The AOL Mac Team is busy working on the next update for AOL Desktop for Mac and some very exciting new applications on the Mac (and other platforms running Mac OS X - hint, hint). As we begin the development process, we interview users, read comments on AOL and most major Mac sites to gauge what features are important to our users. The AOL Mac Team will also be at Macworld Expo (can't wait until Macworld 2009!) and Apple's World Wide Developers Conference in a few weeks to speak face-to-face with users and developers using AOL software and technologies.
Finally, I want to end this article with some comments from users who haven't used AOL software or services in a while and may be hesitant to jump back in. I want to shed some light on the new AOL and clearing up some myths about AOL's Mac software:
Have you visited TUAW.com
(The Unofficial Apple Weblog), Engadget.com
, or autoblog.com
? Guess what, ALL of the sites listed are AOL websites. And if you like Apple's iChat, it runs on the #1 IM network in America - AIM.
On the software side, AOL Desktop for Mac doesn't hide any nefarious software on your Mac or pop advertisements over your windows (I swear!). AOL Desktop for Mac won't interfere with other apps on your Mac and can co-habitate with AOL for Mac OS X for users making a slower migration.
Monday, our kickoff of in-depth features of AOL Desktop for Mac. We will focus on Mail, so stop back soon!
