I founded YENCO.COM on July 1, 1999 to design, develop and deliver easy-to-use quality Macintosh software to help people manage their information with products like Archive to keep track of files on removable devices; Finance to keep track of bank accounts; and iKeeper to keep track of internet passwords and product registrations. On July 1, 2009, I reached a major milestone with the release of a complete rewrite of all YENCO.COM applications built on top of a common code base with a new framework project. December 2011 brought with it another major change with all new YENCO.COM products being made available exclusively through the Mac App Store. Today YENCO.COM is on the cusp of another major change with development of my applications shifting away from SuperCard toward Xcode and SwiftUI.
I have strived to make YENCO.COM environmentally friendly with everything from 100% online delivery of software (meaning zero manufacturing, packaging, or transportation impact), to using my own apps to reduce my need to keep track of stuff on paper and using other apps such as the iPadOS Notes app with an Apple Pencil to virtually eliminate all paper from my app development workflow. To running entirely on Apple products which outperform the strictest global energy efficiency standards. To saving electricity in my workspace with four independly controlled lighting zones using efficient LED lighting products. To considering the end-of-life of the products I use such as the highly recyclable aluminum and glass materials of Apple products and what they don’t contain with specs like arsenic-free glass, mercury-free LED, brominated flame retardant and PVC-free materials.
Through the years, this site and my products (and how I create and provide them) have dramatically changed, but one thing has remained the same: my commitment to deliver the best software I can.
