The long awaited Disco – media burning app is now ready!

The folks responsible for the application that took the Mac community by storm at the beginning of 2006 are finishing the year with a very strong release.

This app came about in an interesting, almost serendipitous way. While waiting the couple of days prior to our trip to meet with Jasper Hauser in Europe, we wanted to see what we could accomplish in a short time. Austin had worked on some different apps that were the impetus for what we’re now calling –
" The Best Sub-$30 Media Burning App Available."

This began at the end of June!

A HUGE amount of time, passion, and intensity have gone into this application. In fact, here’s the formula…

Mix one developer who has no other worries, responsibilities, or distractions in his life. He’s got the success of an application like AppZapper under his belt and spends more time on his MacBook Pro than you or I are even awake each day. Add in a world-renown designer who is EXTREMELY passionate about his craft and will in fact almost enter into fisticuffs if you even question the almost insane attention to detail he puts into his work.

Now, put those two in the same room everyday, feed them once in a while, and remind them to sleep every third day. What do you get? (ignoring the obvious temporary decline in ability for social interaction)

You get a Mac OS X app who’s name can only be followed by… "I gotta have it!"

  • Disco went through an initial round of beta testing with over 1,500 people putting it through it’s initial paces
  • It’s been worked on for months by people who are extremely responsive to input while still being detail oriented
  • It is now available in an exclusive offer here on

If you pick up your copy of Disco today; right now in fact, you could win one of three LaCie d2 DVD burners with LightScribe. This technology allows you to work with the latest media and even etch a label right into your disc as it burns – very COOL!*

There is even an EXTRA bonus for EVERY purchase of Disco while it’s on the home page of MacZOT –

The deal is special because we’re launching something that we’ve personally taken a hand in and we want to reward all the people who have been and are willing to support the development of great Mac apps.

Go watch the videos on the home page, read a bit more info about the application, but then come and get it here!

Burn baby BURN!






*Disclaimer: There’s no purchase necessary to enter into the drawing for one of the 3 DVD-RW drives. You can enter by sending an email with the subject line: Burn Baby Burn. If you are chosen, we’ll follow up via email to request the necessary contact information. This contest is only valid until 11:59 pm PST October 30th, 2006
