be careful before buying this software!
A few years ago I've bought 'Overture 4' for mac and used it regularly before my external harddisk with registration info crashed. After that accident I tried to contact Geniesoft in all ways I could (all their email addresses I still had in my mail-system) and direct by filling in the contact/support form on their website.
I got NO message back; no sign of life. So, the support by Geniesoft is Zero and I cannot use the software anymore. First it seemed like Geniesoft has changed it's name to Genie9 and now I see newsite.geniesoft.com ..... very confusing and frustrating!
