MacStories Selects 2022 Best App Update: Audio Hijack 4

In his write-up, Federico Viticci sagely noted “[i]t’s always challenging for a productivity app used by tens of thousands of professionals who demand consistency and reliability…to reinvent itself without disrupting people’s workflows and causing irreparable damage to its longterm reputation”. It is indeed no small thing to release an app update that moves the state-of-the-art forward without negatively impacting existing users. We’re gratified to hear that others feel we pulled it off.
