TrufSoft.com has released Calillona 2.0 a new software application for Mac OS X that allows you to surf Amazon’s catalog from a desktop application without having to use a Web browser. Calillona 2.0 uses the Amazon Web Services architecture to make it happen.
Based on their previous Web services experience with Amazon Web Services (AWS), TtufSoft initially developed a plugin for Apple’s Sherlock. Calillona 1.x was using the power of AWS, but was restricted in its usage to Sherlock. With Amazon introducing their fourth generation of Web services (AWS 4.0), TrufSoft.com decided to extend the power of Calillona to a full and mature desktop application.
With Calillona and a Mac running OS 10.3, you can now experience a new way of surfing Amazon’s catalog. Calillona 2.0 supports the catalogs from Amazon USA, Amazon United Kingdom, and Amazon Germany. While browsing Amazon’s catalog you can save any product to a configurable shopping cart system. Each shopping cart is saved on your computer, and not on any online server. Checking out with Calillona is as simple as clicking on a button. In the shopping cart view, the checkout button will automatically transfer your list of products to Amazon server, and in a few seconds your purchase can be completed.
In addition, since Calillona is using directly the Amazon Web Services, it does not suffer the same issue as Amazon’s online web site. Even with today’s problem at Amazon online web site, Calillona was working flawlessly for our users across the planet.
Calillona 2.0 is a freeware application that is available now for download.
