I was reviewing some of the download statistics for our Macintosh timeline software this morning and I noticed that we passed a few major milestones. First, our stats on MacUpdate show that we passed 3,000 downloads this week. Our stats on Version Tracker say that we are about to pass 5,000 downloads and these numbers don't include downloads that came through the Bee Documents site or other 3rd party sites such as Apple's download page.
The sales of licenses for Timeline have not been huge but have been steady. In our second month we will sell almost as many licenses as last month when we launched the product and were on the front page of several Mac related news sites.
Because I am encouraged by the sales we are getting on the Mac platform, we have also begun the development of a Windows version of Bee Docs' Timeline. After looking at the existing timeline software on the Windows platform, I think we have an opportunity to be very competitive. It will be interesting to see how the sales compare between the platforms. It will also be interesting to compare my experiences developing for both platforms side-by-side. Depending on our other projects, we should be able to get the first Windows version of Bee Docs' Timeline out by the end of the year.
The products that we currently have under development include:
- Bee Docs' Call Out - Document Presentation Software
- Bee Docs' Timeline for Windows
- A custom case management system for a law firm
- We are also working on some minor improvements to our existing products.
As you can see, I am keeping busy! In fact, I am going to bring on a second developer to work on Bee Docs' Call Out. I'll introduce him on the blog as soon as we get the contracts signed.
