RootsMagic on a Mac - FINALLY?

YAY! Finally, some good news for us Mac users -- RootsMagic will run on a Mac without requiring Windows. You can bet I'm going to download MacBridge and see how this works. (Codeweaver's CrossOver 13 was such a disappointment, as it looked like Windows 3.x.)

 From RootsMagic's Facebook page, we find the following announcement posted a mere 55 minutes ago:

"One of the most common questions we are asked is, “When will RootsMagic run on a Mac?” With today’s release of MacBridge for RootsMagic 6, the answer is “right now”. MacBridge for RootsMagic 6 allows you easily install and run RootsMagic on your Mac in mere minutes with almost no additional setup or configuration.

MacBridge for RootsMagic is different than other solutions you may be familiar with. For starters, it does not install Windows on your Mac. It also does not create a slow and bulky virtual computer. It runs right on your Mac, using your Mac file system. You can even put the RootsMagic icon on your dock for easy one-click access! So while we are busily working on an actual native Mac version of RootsMagic, MacBridge for RootsMagic 6 gives you the ability to work on a Mac today.

Want to see it for yourself? Here’s a short video demonstrating how quick and easy it is to download and install RootsMagic onto your Mac:

Still have questions? Take a look at our answers to some Frequently-Asked Questions about MacBridge for RootsMagic.

Currently, MacBridge for RootsMagic 6 is available only as a download. The regular price is $14.95 but for a limited time, you can get it for only $9.95. So if you or someone you know uses a Mac and has felt left out of the RootsMagic magic, do yourself (or them) a favor and check out MacBridge for RootsMagic today!"
All I can say is finally, finally, finally.

And it remains to be seen how this MacBridge for RootsMagic 6 looks and feels. I'm going to take it for a test drive later today, and plan to report during the next Mondays with Myrt.

Happy family tree climbing!
