Under The Microscope

Winning Big at the Upgradies

Over on Relay FM, Jason Snell and Myke Hurley host a well-loved technology podcast called “Upgrade”. On the first show of the new year, they handed out the Upgradies, awards for their favorite products of the year. Rogue Amoeba was honored to be included among the winners!


At last year’s ceremony, Audio Hijack received a nomination for “Best New Mac App”, but it was bested by Fantastical from our friends at Flexibits. This year, however, Audio Hijack was not to be denied. Our flagship audio recorder took home the big prize, earning the title of “Best Overall Mac App”. Not bad!

Loopback IconWe also had another contender in the “Best New Mac App” category, with our audio routing tool Loopback getting a nomination. While Loopback didn’t come away with the win, it did receive a very respectable 10% of the vote, surprising the hosts. While Loopback certainly isn’t needed by everyone, it’s far less niche than some folks assume!

Our thanks to Jason and Myke, as well as their listeners, for recognizing our work! We hope to pop up again on Upgrade, perhaps at the 2018 Upgradies.
