for 'Best Desktop Enhancement' 2007


Laguna Beach, CA — July 16, 2007 — Microangelo Toolset received the award for "Best Desktop Enhancement" at the 2007 Shareware Industry Awards held in Denver Colorado, Saturday July 14, 2007.  Toolset's icon editor and utilities, created by Eclipsit Corporation, provide a comprehensive package of icon software used to edit icons, manage icon libraries, search, extract, convert, and just about anything else you would want to do with icons.

“Our customers come to us looking for a high quality icon editor with cutting-edge capabilities,” said Len Gray, CEO at Eclipsit. “Microangelo offers that and more.  Toolset was one of the first ten applications in the world to be officially "Certified for Windows Vista" by Microsoft.   It's features cover all aspects of icon management and manilpulation, provide a rich user experience, and a snappy, responsive interface.”

Microangelo and its creators have pioneered icon software for over fifteen years, beginning with the release of the very the first icon editor for Windows in 1990 and the introduction of the icon library format in 1991 (now an industry standard). Microangelo has “pushed the envelope”, offering True Color icons as early as 1995, and the world's first icon editor to create and manage alpha-blended icons for Windows XP. Today, the "Grand-Daddy" of icon software continues to lead the way, providing a complete solution for the latest, high resolution icons in Windows Vista.

The Shareware Industry Awards were conceived to honor the very best programs that use the "shareware" marketing model.  More than two-thousand software authors and members of the software industry participated in the nomination and voting process from eighty-seven countries around the world.  Winners are announced at the awards banquet during the annual Software Industry Conference.
