The Ohanaware App Kit 2021 is currently sold exclusively via the Omegabundle.
A fantastic bundle of Xojo developer tools worth over $3,871 for $399.99.

The Ohanaware App Kit is a massive collection of declares, delegates, classes and controls to elevate Xojo made Mac Applications to the next level.

With this kit you're getting the same source code that we use in our award winning Mac applications like our App Wrapper and our photography application HDRtist, Permissions Reset, Aqua Swatch or even our little Iconographer Mini.

Which means as we improve our Xojo built Mac applications, we issue App Kit updates, which help improve your Xojo made Mac applications also.
