About us.

We're Bounce Technologies, an independent studio making humble, honest software for human beings.

We believe that technology should serve people, not the other way around. We think simple is better than complex, that functional is better than flashy and that privacy is a human right.

We also believe that your time and attention deserve our utmost respect. That's why this page weighs in at a little over 500 kB, loads in about half a second from start to finish on a good connection, and even on slow 3G is fully readable after only a second or two.

Our products.

Text Compare app screenshot.

Tiny, fast, and laser-focused, Text Compare is a native macOS app that lets you instantly see the difference between two pieces of text.

Font Smoothing Adjuster app screenshot.

Apple removed the controls for disabling font smoothing in macOS Big Sur. So we made a free and open-source app to re-enable them.

What people are saying.


I was looking for a simple and good way to compare contract texts. This tool does a great job of that. Enter the current contract version on the left, enter the newly sent contract version on the right and you have the difference. Big thanks to the developer.

I thought I was losing my eyesight with the lower PPI on MBPs than iPhones. This makes things SO much clearer. Thank you!
