Equinux is a company I enjoy their products, and the latest version of Mail Designer Pro 2 is no exception, feature packed to create newsletters on your desktop and mobile…and really work well and yes, ready for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. When I use their software people ask are you a graphic designer…. Well, this new version of Mail Designer Pro 2 creates a retina quality mobile optimized graphics/photos on the fly, automatically, so no worries about low level resolution issues, that’s great… Like fonts, I was amazed to find over 500 available, that are web ready. You don’t need to know how to write code, html, any of that, just simple drag and drop, and html 5 ready, and no coding necessary, I enjoyed making my own buttons with it also being able to add GIFS, videos, even HTML 5.
When I had created a good piece to send out, it would easily check it out for mistakes, optimize image quality, and check for broken links. Yeah. saves me much time using it’s built in error checks.
It works with the major newsletter products: MailChimp and Campaign Monitor, and allows you to send directly from your email account. Being able to export as a website was great too. and yes, it’s Yosemite ready! I like the new OS and Mail Designer Pro 2 was designed for Yosemite so expect to see translucency. I think you’ll like it, I sure do!
