This latest update to Ember contains an entirely new iCloud sync engine that makes syncing your library far more reliable. Thanks for all your feedback and patience while we re-worked iCloud sync.

If you’re still encountering problems with iCloud sync, drop us a line via the “Support” link in the App Store - and if you love Ember, we’d appreciate a review in the App Store.

If you’ve got the Browser Extensions always enabled, then Auto-Import adds images in the background too.

Version 1.2 | Release Date: 2013-10-24 | Download

What's New in Version 1.2

We’ve got two huge new features in this Ember update: we hope you enjoy them!


Ember will analyze the images in your library, and allow you to search for colors. Just type in the name of the color you’re looking for (for example: “Dark Blue”, “Light Green”), or use the color picker when building a Smart Collection.


Store your Ember library in iCloud, and access it on each Mac you use.

Depending on the size of your library, the initial upload to iCloud may take some time. We highly recommend you visit the Ember support area and read our iCloud FAQ before moving your library to iCloud: http://bit.ly/ember_icloud

Note: This update to Ember requires OS X Mavericks.

Thanks for all your feedback and suggestions. Be sure to let us know what you’d like to see in future Ember updates!

Version 1.1 | Release Date: 2013-08-13 | Download

Introducing “Smart Drawing”

We’ve been hard at work bringing some frequently-requested features to Ember, and today’s update adds what we’re calling “Smart Drawing”.

As you annotate your images, Ember detects you’ve drawn an arrow, circle or square, and magically replaces your drawing with a beautifully-smooth shape.

We’ve made a number of other tweaks and changes in this update:

  • Drag images straight from the Finder to Collections in your Ember library!
  • Because your GIFs need managing too, Ember is far smarter about dealing with them. GIFs + Ember + Sharing to Tumblr == Awesome
  • When you click “Full Width” in the Ember browser the width now tracks any window resizing. P.S. Did you know that you can drag and re-arrange the width of the browser?
  • Each image’s file type is now visible in the Inspector.
  • Lots of other small fixes and tweaks to ensure your Ember experience is as smooth as possible.

Thanks for supporting Ember, and stay tuned for the next feature update soon!

  • There’s some new keyboard shortcuts to jump between unseen Subscription images (just use Shift and the arrow keys to jump between new images in the Subscription viewer).
  • You can now move snaps between collections from the sidebar: hold option and drag the snap from a collection onto another
  • Fixes a couple of incorrect tooltips.

Things You May Not Notice

  • You can now drag images onto the illustrations in an empty library or Collection.
