Somerville, MA. March 21, 2007 (Permalink)

Red Sweater Software announced today that Black Ink 1.0 is available for immediate download. Black Ink makes it easy to download and solve free puzzles from the Internet. The ultimate crossword solving application for Mac OS X, Black Ink's intuitive interface and advanced puzzle solving tools are a joy for crossword lovers of all ages and skills.

Black Ink was developed by Red Sweater Software after acquiring MacXword from Stephan Cleaves in January, 2007. Cleaves developed and published the software under the Advenio brand with business partner Michael Dupuis, where it was widely acknowledged as the leading crossword application for Mac OS X.

"From the new name to the new functionality and redressing of existing features, everything Daniel has done with Black Ink has impressed me," said Stephan Cleaves, founder of Yellow Camp Software. "Veteran and new users alike are in for a treat with this new version of the premier crossword solving application for the Mac."

"I've been solving crosswords since I was a kid, all through college, and as a much needed break in my professional life," said Daniel Jalkut, founder of Red Sweater Software. "MacXword was the best application anywhere for solving crosswords, which is why I was so excited to acquire it and make it even better."

Black Ink connects users with the puzzles they are passionate about. Download new puzzles from the Internet, solve them with an advanced on-screen editor, or print them out for the long weekend away from the office. Black Ink covers all of the puzzle-solver's needs.

Black Ink costs just $24.95, and offers a 30-day fully-featured evaluation period. Red Sweater is pleased to offer existing customers of MacXword a substantial upgrade discount. See the Red Sweater Store for more details.

Red Sweater Software is a privately held company focused on Macintosh software development.
