"iBiz 4 is designed to help free-lancers and small business owners stay on top of their billing," says Ian Gillespie, President of IGG. "More self-employed people than ever are using Macs, and more of them are seeing that an essential tool like iBiz delivers returns far above what it costs - in both income and efficiency."
* The most important new feature of iBiz 4.1 is the inclusion of a pop-up calender for events, projects and to-dos. This enhances the accessibility of the interface, speeds entry of calendar-based items, and allows users to take better advantage of the app's iCal sync engine.
* The update also offers two dozen additional bug fixes and enhancements throughout the app, including changes to editing notes attached to invoices; printing; default templates; client statements; and improvements addressing other known issues.
* Additionally, for new users, IGG has added an iBiz 4 Quick Start Guide PDF to the iBiz downloads page of its website.
To celebrate this update, IGG Software has partnered with the online software vendor MacZOT to showcase iBiz 4.1 at a $15.00 (USD) discount off its regular price. MacZOT works with independent developers to offer daily specials on select Mac applications via the maczot.com website. The company posts a new 24-hour software offer every weekday, and features one product for 48 hours on weekends. This opportunity to purchase iBiz at 38% savings will be available August 15 and 16 only, and is exclusive to MacZOT.
All enhancements in iBiz 4.1 are applicable to iBiz Professional, IGG's multi-user client/server edition of the software. The iBiz Pro package offers Mac-based professional offices the only networkable solution of its kind. iBiz 4, available as a free trial download, is also compatible with IGG's iBank 3, the leading Mac-only personal finance management app; iBank Mobile, a fully syncable version for the iPhone and iPod touch, is available from the Apple App Store.
