Future of MacPOS
*Update March 12, 2022
We are working on a POS replacement for MacPOS that runs under 64bit macOS.
It might take another 6 months to get to a public release and there are few customers working with early beta versions to ensure it works with existing MacPOS databases.
This new version will be integrated with our Cloud platform mentioned below.

The current v2021 MacPOS will not be updated to run on the 64bit macOS versions which include 10.15 and above. COVID was a nail in it's coffin and the development stopped on the new version. We lost team members that were no longer able to work with us remotely and many of our customers had to close their doors permanently.
The marketplace for a POS system built upon a desktop computer, ie... a Mac, these days is very small as compared to recent years. Everyone wants a system they can use on their iPhone or iPads along with their Mac. We are putting all of our concentration on our cloud platform, SKYePOS.com which supports any device capable of running a modern web browser.
We are working with select independent developers on a 64bit POS system that runs on both Mac and iPadOS. These apps will also have the ability to interoperate with SKYePOS but will not be a direct replacement for all the features found in MacPOS, especially if we developed custom functionality for your business. MacPOS features were developed over 20+ years and included proprietary software that has to be redone from scratch for 64bit macOS.
You can use MacPOS and SKYePOS together during a transition or until that old Mac dies.
You don't need the latest greatest hardware and operating system to use our software.
We will continue to support MacPOS customers and hope some will migrate to skyepos.com.
MacPOS runs great on macOS 10.7 -10.14 and is still in use worldwide.
