Back when Apple Computer Inc. still supported the Apple II platform, the company released troves of utilities for end users and programmers alike — from the System 4.0.2 and System 6.0.1 operating systems, to SCSI card and Video Overlay Card utilities, to MPW tools and GS-Bug. These programs enabled users to make the most of their Apple II, providing the foundation for many impressive developments.
Today, Juiced.GS is excited to announce the immediate availability of dozens of these official programs, originally published by the Apple Programmers and Developers Association (APDA) and now collected into one original compilation. Whether you’re looking for functional software such as HyperCard and HyperMover, which will convert HyperCard stacks from the Mac to the Apple IIGS, or historical curiosities like System 6.0, the penultimate GS/OS release, you’ll find it on this single volume of APDA software.
APDA programs are copyrighted by Apple Inc. and can be distributed and sold only by authorized entities. We’re honored to be publishing this collection in collaboration with The Byte Works, which is licensed by Apple Inc. to make these products available. We were further assisted by David Schmidt to ensure the programs of decades ago are formatted to work with modern Apple II computers and emulators.
The APDA Software Library is available at an introductory price of US$15 until December 1, 2022, after which the price will be $20.

We hope you enjoy these lost classics and find them as useful today as they were upon their release!
