I checked PayPal, and they had no record of a sale, either. So I went through the process again and this time succeeded.

Now I have a great app but no addresses to convert. I feel like a man with ninja stars and no one to attack. Where is that Vic-K when I need him? :twisted:

Careful, Droo! Apparently, you don't know that Vic is a member of the dreaded Jameson school of ninjutsu. In the higher proofs they're very good with all manner of glass weaponry (when they're wearing glasses).

Thanks for the purchase! In another hour or so I'll have the last of the video tutorials up on the web site so while you're waiting for that deluge of addresses you can listen to my dulcet tones and be lightly edjimakated.

For anyone who is interested, FormalAddress and FormalAddressPro are now on the Mac App Store. There's no difference between the App Store versions and those available from the FormalAddress site.

I had to deal recently with a large set of new addresses, thanks to Seasons Greetings mail. FA made it easy to collect the addresses, format them, and pass them to Address Book. It's an invaluable utility, with no learning curve and a bargain at $5.99; $15.99 for the Pro version. Plus the cheerful assistance of Mr. Dave! :D

There is a new release of FormalAddress. It now recognizes addresses from 19 countries and the Pro version includes an Export Profile editor.

Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Columbia, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States, and Venezuela

If you're hoping to pitch your wares to new publishers, the right address is a good start. :D

You can find it here.

Well, yes, I was thinking about under the table and in the spirit of ethno-linguistics I was hoping that the only participating member of this tribe available might offer some insight into this curious language. Since, we apparently do not have the formidable Druid to offer professional insight into this curious bit of vituperation, I guess we'll just have to wait for some, cough, enlightenment from the informant.

Well, I don't think so, but I wrote FormalAddress so I might be prejudiced. :)

Although both apps recognize addresses, FormalAddress does it for multiple addresses at once in 19 countries & 8 languages, and will save them to address book and database-friendly formats. If that interests you you might check out the website.

I'm happy to announce that there is a new version of FormalAddress!

Version 3 is an almost complete rewrite and greatly extends the capabilities:

    • Now recognizes addresses in 25 countries and 12 languages
    • New address recognition for Ireland, New Zealand, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, &     Finland
    • Completely redesigned interface
    • Redesign of recognition engine
    • Form and label detection
    • Table recognition in the Pro version
    • Direct Address Book (Contacts) integration
    • And vast quantities of other improvements

You can see more here:
http://www.formal-address.com

Please note, FormalAddress is also available on the Mac App Store but it is version 2. Three will be submitted for review soon after I recover from the initial release :D

So, if you need to assemble a marketing list quickly for that new book of yours, you might want to take a peek. . . .
