Shareware publishing power

new software submission tool and assistant for Mac OS X

SharewarePublisher is a new software submission tool and assistant for Mac OS X Leopard; developed specifically for shareware developers, vendors and media specialists alike. SharewarePublisher helps semi-automatically submit software applications to leading software listing sites and repositories. Developers can submit to 100+ sites within just a few hours, which would otherwise take several days.

The benefit of being listed on many shareware sites is not only the direct exposure, but also the additional links to the developer's company website. This leads to better Google ranking, results in more traffic and potentially translates to more customers. With SharewarePublisher, developers will enjoy seeing their application(s) listed on many sites instantly. SharewarePublisher features built-in check lists, which sites that have to be submitted to, and where a product has yet to be listed.

SharewarePublisher ships with almost 200 pre-configured shareware sites

A native Cocoa application, SharewarePublisher ships with almost 200 pre-configured shareware sites (about 100 of them carrying Mac software titles), with carefully hand-tuned ratings/priorities. It provides functions to autolocate the listing and submission page for a product on all sites and autofills the forms with a single click. This is particularly useful for non-PAD-aware sites.

Feature highlights:
* Time-efficient semi-automated submission
* Built-in list of almost 200 leading shareware sites
* Predefined submission URLs
* Easy management of listing URLs
* Integrated two-tab web viewer
* Autofill submission forms
* Autolearn submission forms
* User ID and password management
* Site-specific categories
* To-do list
* Submission history
* PAD file support
* Built specifically for the Mac

"SharewarePublisher is not an automated submission robot," said Christoph Reichenberger, CEO of Ergonis Software. "In over twenty years of experience in the Mac shareware market, we have learned that many shareware sites will not accept or simply don't like submissions from robot programs. The majority want developers to visit their sites personally to submit programs directly. However, submitting to a long list of sites is a very time-consuming and a tedious task. And consequently, this cost-effective and valuable marketing resource is mostly disregarded by shareware developers." Acting as a special assistant for software submissions, SharewarePublisher is a full-fledged posting client for the Desktop. It fully integrates the listing host's web interface into the Mac experience, offering developers the best of both worlds.
