Yes, davegimchee, you would indeed be the first to buy from South Korea (or any Korea since I don't think I'll make a sale to North Korea anytime in the near or far future). I hope I do make a South Korean sale since I spent 14 months in your fine country sometime in the last century. I learned a lot about people and life while I was there. I'm not surprised to see South Korea thriving as it is now because they are very hard working, smart people.

Well, I couldn't resist using this particular thread to announce the release of GT Pro version 8.5. As always, if you have purchased within the last 12 months you get a free download. You have to email me with your purchase details (month, year will do).

In the video preview, the software has an extra re in the word birefringence (in the gemstone separator).

Hi Barbra and Hans,

Unfortunately, no Mac version is on the horizon. If I could port it over I would but it would take a complete re-write and 1) I'm not up to that at this stage and 2) I don't have a Mac and I wouldn't make enough from it to make it worthwhile.

Charles, I'm still looking into your request. That may happen, but no promises.

Lukeness,

Thanks. I cannot tell you how many times I looked at that module (or more likely did NOT look at it) and never noticed the misspelling.

My pleasure. I used to be a copy editor so I guess it's still second nature.

I don't see Gemology Tools Pro being Mac friendly any time soon.
The options are partitioning your hard drive and installing windows, OR, as I have done, install it on the old PC. :D

Thanks Barbara for the heads up

i will dust off the old girl...

though i read that they will be developing a web version...

"Q: Can I run GT Pro on my iPad? No, you cannot. However, in the Summer of 2014 we will have a web based version of the program which will run on an iPad. The web based version runs well on full sized tablets but I haven’t run it on a smaller tablet like the iPad Mini. It doesn’t work very well on most smart phones. I haven’t tried it on a phablet."

might consider a cheap tablet

thanks
Jen

Actually, I have run across a possible way to port GT Pro over to the Mac environment. I would really like to have a Mac version. I am also working on a web site version.

I would definitely get a mac version. I no longer do Windows. Pun intended. :wink:

When my last PC died 5 years ago, I replaced it with a MacBook and haven't looked back since.

I have launched gemologytoolsonline.com for those iPad and Mac users that might want to try it. Enter the coupon code 1MonthFree to get your first month free. Note that if you are a Contributor there is no cost. Notify me if I missed you somehow.
