I am happy to finally release these 3 stacks that have been in the works for a long time. 

QuickFlip

When you hover over QuickFlip, it flips over like a card to reveal contents on the other side. It uses amazing CSS3 animations that work beautifully on all modern borwsers and mobile devices. QuickFlip offers many different flip styled animations along some great bonus shift accent effects.

Upgrade discounts have been emailed to all existing stack owners. 

Tardis

Tardis is a set of 3 stacks that let you control time. You can control when certain content will be displayed based on a start and end dates along with time. Tardis Days allows you to control which days of the week or month content is displayed. Tardis Time allows you to insert the current time or the last published time of a webpage. Start scheduling your content today!

$5 launch special with code drwho (ends 1/1/2015)

Glass

Glass is all about transparency. Add full transparency to your borders and backgrounds. Glass supports the following backgrounds: solid color, images, and gradients. It has wonderful gradient building tools that can produce beautiful effects. If you like Glass, make sure to check out its big brother Jack.

That preview site is wicked cool right!?!

Jack 4 is finally here! Your new best friend...

image

Jack (formerly Styled Stack) has been around for a long time. However, Jack 3 never felt right to me. It was very slow to work with in Stacks Edit Mode. The biggest problem was that I did a poor job at teaching people how to really get the most out of the stack. Because of this Jack 4 is a free update to all existing users!

Well I am happy to say that I think that I fixed all of that with Jack 4. Working with Jack in edit mode is a breeze. The stack was completely rewritten from scratch. To show you all of the amazing things that you can do with Jack, I built an entire demo website purely for showing you all of the things that Jack can accomplish for you.

Existing Jack 3 stacks

All existing Jack stacks on your page will continue to function. However, they will not gain any of the new Jack functionality. You will notice that they have been renamed to Jack Legacy. You can still modify them and they will work 100%. When adding new Jack stacks to the page, you will get all of the new awesomeness!
