What's up with Boom 1.x?
As you may or may not know, Boom 1.x is a system-wide volume booster and equalizer for Mac that was first released in 2011. Over the years, it impressed users and reviewers alike and also gave people from all around the world some incredibly loud and clear audio. Today, Boom has an older brother called Boom 2, which is a new app that sounds as good as it looks.
What's in store for the future?
With newer and more powerful technologies in the picture today, devices are now faster and slicker than ever before. They also run on OSs that have seen a sea change in the last year or two. For instance, OS X Yosemite (10.10) saw a complete revamp, in terms of looks as well as under-the-hood changes. We decided that at this rate, it would be tough to keep Boom 1.x running due to the older frameworks it was built upon.
What is being done about it?
After careful consideration, we've decided to stop selling Boom 1.x from our Webstore as well as the Mac App Store. We created Boom 2 from the ground up so that we could make use of all the latest frameworks and technologies. It was getting difficult to support two different apps, especially when they're different on the inside. However, owners of Boom 1.x needn't panic. We've come up with a timeline that takes care of app support.
What now for the owners of Boom 1.x?
We love our users and we were never going to make a hasty decision. We've decided to structure a support plan that extends into 2016. We've stopped selling Boom 1.x, but will continue to support it until mid-2016. Also, we shall come out with a final update that makes Boom 1.x compatible with OS X El Capitan! Apart from that, Boom 1.x owners can avail of support and other means of tech help through mail (reach us at email@example.com). This will cease on July 1, 2016.
We are now fully focused on Boom 2, which goes way beyond what Boom 1.x is capable of. Visit its website to see how beautiful and powerful it is! Boom 2 comes with an enhanced system-wide audio booster, precise and advanced equalizers, cool audio effects, personalized audio for YOUR Mac and a cool companion remote app for your iPhone or iPad to control Boom 2, Spotify, VLC, QuickTime and iTunes on your Mac!
