The moment has arrived for delivery of Phase I on AmigaShare.com
Phase I is fully functional and open to the entire community.
From scratch (around 6 weeks ago), the team at AmigaShare begun the creation of a site that is focussed on the user and innovative features (specifically for OS4). The initial offering is evidence of their fresh approach.|
Chris Nillissen, co-founder of AmigaShare.com commented:
"This last week sure has been hectic. We had a lot to do in order to deliver on our promise for the release of Phase I to the entire Amiga community. We were focussed on sign off. That is, getting through our internal tests as well using feedback from our selected Amiga testers.
Well, now we eagerly await participation and feedback from the community itself, as well as their support and assistance in growing the site. In particular, we invite you all to use the facilities and upload your favourite Amiga applications".

|In reply to Comment 8 (Don Cox):|
Yes it might not be clear YET as to the advantage of this site. However, AmigaShare have many plans, for the site and specifically the software library.
To most points I would agree that the site, in its current state, is just another aminet but with a nice interface built around it. I see this as important as it provides an easy, simple and more importantly a professional looking interface for new comers.
With the soon release of AmigaOS 4, both the OS and the community has to start presenting itself professionally and colorfully to expand its hold in the market. People from the Mac and PC world expect a professional and/or nice looking OS, Apps and websites.
Secondly, but in AmigaShare’s eyes most importantly, the software library integrates with our other AmigaShare services. One of the services we aim at providing is an Authoring Center for AmigaOS Software developers. This service will provide Amiga Developers, free of charge, the following features:
• Full e-commerce payment gateway system
• Submission of software on the AmigaShare software library
• Source code to make your application. Shareware or a Demo.
• Source code to implement in-application payments via the AmigaShare e-commerce payment gateway.
• Advertising and Promotions.
• And much more.
I hope this has given you some incite to why we are creating a Software Library and how at least one of our services fits into it.
