CE Software began as the programming arm of Computer Emporium, a retail computer store begun in 1978 by Richard Skeie, and started publishing software in 1981. SwordThrust, a text adventure game for the Apple II by Donald Brown, was one of the company's first titles. Other early projects included Mission Escape!, an action game by Jim Jacobson, and Wall Street, a financial strategy game by Donald Brown. Subsequent projects focused on business communications and productivity, with various software solutions for both Macintosh and Windows platforms.
In April 2004, a group of CE Software employees formed Startly Technologies, acquiring the operating assets of CE Software and taking the company private.
Current product offerings from Startly Technologies include:
- QuicKeys, a task automator
- Trans Lucy 2, a media player
- QuickConference, a communications utility
- Docktopus, a Mac OS X dock utility
- InOut Tracker.
