In October 2019, Apple released the newest version of its macOS - Catalina. The release included many exciting new features, including the ability to use an iPad as a second monitor, a new music app, and a new TV app, however this new release does have one significant downfall - the lack of support for 32-bit apps. Unfortunately Pearl Bids for macOS falls under this category and is not supported by (ie will not work with) macOS Catalina.

With the release of the new more powerful version of Pearl Bids (Pearl Bids Online) we will no longer be making updates to the downloadable versions of Pearl Bids. However, we have decided to leave these downloadable versions available for customers who are not able to get a wifi at their event locations. As increasing number of applications move to an online only ability, we felt it was important to leave this downloadable available as a viable solution for those seeking a usable silent auction management package in situations where wifi is not available.
