After a bit of a gap, I’m pleased to say a new update to Base is available to download.

The highlights include:

  • Modernising the UI a bit to bring it more in line with recent versions of macOS. It looks familiar, but feels less old fashioned.
  • Adding syntax highlighting themes. You can now have different text colours for light & dark modes which switch automatically.
  • Adding support for macOS Dark Mode throughout the app. No more eye glare!
  • All versions of Base now require macOS 10.14 (Mojave) and have enabled sandboxing

There’s other minor bugfixes in there too which sort out some UI glitches and misplaced buttons.

You can buy or download a trial version from the homepage. You can also buy Base from the Mac App Store or download from Setapp

I’ve made something small and fun. A rubber stamp sticker pack for iOS 10!

It’s a collection of iMessage stickers in the style of rubber stamps. There are stamps for likes and dislikes, reactions, star ratings, and a bunch of other odds and ends.

Here’s a couple of images showing them in use:

The InkStamp sticker pack is a 99¢ (79p) download available from the App Store for iMessage.

Five years ago today, Base 1.0 was released blinking into the internet. Since that day there have been 29 updates varying from minor patches to major upgrades.

There’s still a long way to go with this app. Development is still ongoing and I am looking forward to the next five years. I hope you will all join me.

To celebrate, Base is 50% off for the next three days. Until the end of 18th November 2013 Base will be priced at £9.99 ($13.99 or regional equivalent). You can buy Base from the Mac App Store or from this website.

Thank you to all of you who have helped make Base what it is today and to those whose feedback, bug reports and suggestions are helping to make it even better in the future.

Base 2.4.8 is now available to download for those purchasing licenses via the web store. An update for Mac App Store users has been submitted and will hopefully be approved for sale quickly. While normally both versions will have updates released together, the bugs that are fixed in this version were annoying enough to warrant separate releases.

The main changes in this release are to disable smart quotes and smart dashes in the SQL editor. The SQLite version has also been updated to 3.8.1.

Base 2.4.8 can be downloaded from the product page or from the Mac App Store.

As always, the full list of changes can be found in the release notes and if you’ve found a bug or have a question, please do get in touch.
