Simple Envelope is on the Mac App Store at v2.0.5, and the developer's website shows availability as well. I bought it (from MAS) and I like it.

The "discontinued" status given above needs to be changed.

Dead app. No longer listed on developer's website, and the dev appears to have shut down one of his two remaining iOS apps as well.

May have to wait a while ..... developer's support page says (Feb 18) they found a bug that needed to be fixed and they had to resubmit to Apple for approval.

I've got version 1.1 and was thinking upgrade, but I can't remember if it even cost anything back then because I can't find any transaction record/correspondence on it. I guess with all the improvements it's well worth another 6 bucks regardless.

Just curious why neither this app nor EasyEnvelopes use FIM codes.

Looks like this is using the open source code from Snail Mail: https://github.com/knowuh/SnailMail

Which is OK. It's MIT licensed. But just thought people might like to know they can get Snail Mail for free.

Great idea but Ambrosia Software beat you to it;

http://www.ambrosiasw.com/utilities/easyenvelopes/

and offers the same thing for free.

What makes this program better?

Easy Envelopes hasn't been update for 18 months now and causes problems with OS X 10.6. And its barcodes apparently haven't been updated (which is of no interest to those of us outside the USA, but still..) So the answer to "what makes this program better?" is "it's up to date.' Which I must say I found out by looking at the MU listing comments. As you could have done, of course.

Quite a few things make Simple Envelope better:

(Actually, Simple Envelope isn't new: the app had its start as Snail Mail, which Nik Sands discontinued developing in 2009 because of other commitments. The code for Snail Mail 1.8 has been open-sourced and can be found at https://github.com/knowuh/SnailMail -- the developers of Simple Envelope have taken that and made it compatible with 10.6.)

- SE doesn't scale images that are used for the return address. When I started looking for a replacement for Snail Mail, I found that EE scaled the image down. That wasn't a big problem, since I could just scale the image up before importing it into EE, but Ambrosia hasn't fixed that issue in nearly a year.

- SE supports profiles, with separate envelope size, return address image, formatting, colors, etc., for each. Typically I have a text return address for personal mail and an image for business mail; with SE I can switch using a popup menu, but EE loses the image when you switch to a text address.

- SE has a number of options for specifying what gets printed in the address panels and the formatting for each item. EE only allows the formatting of the entire field.

- SE has several barcode printing options. EE has one: off/on.

I have been using Snail Mail for, I don't know, ten years and for the last year have been limping along as I work around its deficiencies in Snow Leopard. Not one of the other commercial offerings beats it for ease-of-use. I am excited that Simple Envelope is now available!

Snail Mail is dead, long live Simple Envelope!
