Have you ever wanted to bring the best part of Pinterest out of the web browser and onto your Mac? RealMac Software appears to be doing just that (and more) with a reimagining of its LittleSnapper application.
On Thursday, Realmac Software offered a sneak peek at Ember for Mac, a new application hitting the Mac App Store in late July. Essentially version 2.0 of its long-neglected LittleSnapper software, Ember looks to be a slick way to keep a digital scrapbook on your Mac.
"Save, organize, annotate and share your design inspiration," the Ember teaser website explains. While the core feature set might echo LittleSnapper, a video sneak peek paints Ember as more of a Mac-based Pinterest without having to share your items with the world at large.
Although RealMac has yet to pin a price on Ember for Mac (get it?), a FAQ page on the website details that the software will require OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.3 or higher. No upgrade pricing from LittleSnapper is planned, but Ember will have introductory pricing on the Mac App Store when released.
Perhaps best of all for LittleSnapper users, that library will import just fine into Ember, but RealMac advises users to upgrade to the latest version 1.8.5 in preparation of the late July release.
