Our history began in 1989, when Impact Software introduced "Almanac for Windows". Almanac was not only one of the first Windows programs available of any kind, it also won the very first Windows award for "Best New Windows Application" at the 1993 Shareware Industry Awards.
Between 1990 and 1993, Impact Software introduced several utilities to edit and manipulate Windows
icons. Icon Studio and Icon Manager were among the first 200 programs recognized by Microsoft
as true, 32-bit applications. In 1995 Impact Software introduced Microangelo, the Grand-Daddy of icon editors!
This unique name has set the tone for this successful software family. As unique a name
as Microangelo, its exceptional capabilities have stood the test of time.
In 1998, Microangelo became the first icon utility to surpass 1,000,000 downloads
on CNET (download.com). Later, Microangelo introduced true
animated icons on the desktop, and when Windows XP was released, Microangelo was
the first icon editing tool capable of creating and editing alpha blended icons.
Today Microangelo is not only the leader in icon editing software for Windows, but has
now won the coveted Shareware Industrys Best Graphics Program or
Utility award three years in a row
2002) and the "Best Desktop Enhancement"
award as well (2004,
2006). We are very proud of these "three-peats",
which remain unmatched by any other software authors in the eighteen years of existence of the
Shareware Industry Awards. Microangelo was also awarded the 2002 Peoples Choice Award
as the most popular software download at Simtel Networks.
For over eighteen years our goal has remained the same. To provide you with
software, customer service, and technical support that meet all of your needs, and more!
