the future

Developers don't generally discuss future plans but a few things are too important for us to keep secret.

  • There will be a Mac OS X version of avTag, designed and built for OS X Mavericks.
  • There will be data synchronisation between all of your Macs, iPads, iPhones and iPod touches.
There are no target dates for these or any other planned features or improvements but news will shared as and when they become available.


The tag details view
You now hopefully have an idea of what avTag can do but might be asking yourself how the idea came about. If you are, this section is just for you.

The idea for avTag came from a frustration at finding important pieces of information in conference videos. Each year Apple runs a conference for developers. Each year they release over 100 videos of the presentations. Each year I'd watch the videos and a few months after doing so I'd hit a problem and remember that it was discussed somewhere in one of them. If I could ever find that moment again it was usually after a long and frustrating search. Through frustration avTag was created.
