We are a small software company registered in London. Our focus is aimed at making Mac software for content creators: People who use the power of their Mac to create new and exciting stuff. Be it for the web or any other form of modern media.
So if you are one of the people who use their Mac for more than browsing Facebook and you actually create content - whether as a freelancer, in a job or running your own business - then you are the person we design our software for!
Our most popular product by far is Power Prompter - the Mac teleprompter. And to be honest we were a little surprised by the huge popularity it got just short after its initial release.
Power Prompter initially started as a side project after trying to get a voice over done. The truth is: Teleprompting software sucks. Most of it is decades old (or imitates decade old concepts) and has accumulated a lot of cruft that's only useful for old style TV network workflows with funky analogue hardware.
Luckily we didn't need any of that cruft and could discard it without an existing user base getting angry at us. We were also able to add nifty features like resolution independence. Features that are just not possible if you have to support 1990s era analogue studio equipment.
And because we all are fanatic Mac users we natrually chose the Mac as our platform. And that's the story of it.
We could try to come up with some extraordinary story about how we founded our fine company. But to be honest our history is not that extraordinary...
In Short: We're a small team of Mac developers who wanted to work on their own ideas for a change. So we started Suborbital Softworks in 2014 and got to work. And now just a few years later we're here with 3 great apps, many happy users, and still a lot of work ahead of us - and we're having loads of fun!
