Collectorz is ceasing development on the Mac edition
This has been a very difficult and painful decision, but ...As of yesterday, February 1 2021, all development on the "Collector" software for macOS has been discontinued. Also, the subscriptions for the Mac editions are not available in our shop anymore, not for new users, not for renewals.
We are recommending all users of our Mac software to switch to our Connect web-based software ASAP, using our Trade-In offer: we will transfer your remaining Collector subscription days to the Connect edition, plus we will add 4 extra months for free.
