Mac users would love to have enhanced audio experience as well as see their favorite multimedia apps. Therefore Global Delight, creators of essential Mac and iOS apps that maximize your photo, video and audio experiences, today unveiled Boom 10.8 + Retina for the MacBook Pro. Specifically designed for the MacBook Pro Retina Display laptop, this release of the award-winning sound booster and equalizer app lets MacBook Pro users finally experience Retina Display-quality videos, TV, movies and apps with booming audio, system-wide -- the way Apple intended.

With Boom, users can experience the same quality audio experience by increasing and equalizing the volume of videos, music, games, movies, TV and communications apps like Skype or FaceTime system-wide. And Boom is now available with localized Help file support in five additional languages: Simplified Chinese, Italian, Spanish, German and French.

"With more Mac users watching music videos, TV and movies, video-chatting, and gaming, Boom lets MacBook Pro Retina-Display users take their multimedia experience to the next level," said Guruprasad Kamath of Global Delight. "Boom would improve the audio quality from the Mac's built-in Stereo speakers on the latest MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, MacBook Pro with Retina display and the to-be-released new iMac as well." he added.

Boom is a menu bar app volume booster and system-wide equalizer that lets you increase the volume of a Mac laptop and desktop’s video and music files. Boom lets you easily boost sound for great TV and movie watching, gaming and music listening experiences. Boom is also ideal for use with communication programs like Skype and FaceTime, so users don’t have to use external speakers or lean way in to listen to other party communication. Boom enables users to increase the volume of any application or program that is playing sound, such as Netflix, YouTube, QuickTime, iMovie and the CD/DVD player.
