Before my eyes could completely focus this morning, I was checking my email and preparing for the day ahead. Waiting for me in my Inbox was the notice that Microsoft (who bought iView Media Pro) had released their update to the much-loved media cataloging application.
Expression Media is the new iView Media Pro, and is an upgraded version of iVMP3. Licensed users of the pre-Microsoft app get this update for free, and are issued a new license for Expression. And while it’s an ‘upgrade’, it is in fact a whole new app, so you could technically run iVMP3 and Expression Media side by side if you’re still queasy about Microsoft’s commitment to the software.
I’ve only just given it a once-over this morning, but it looks fine. The icons and such have been updated, and there’s color-coding on the information tabs, but beyond that not much in the way of major change has stood out. That of course doesn’t mean it’s not below the surface, I just haven’t gotten there yet.
Give it a look, and if you’re a registered user, get your new/free version and give it a spin.
