|Ameol is the original offline reader, for CIX, the original social network. Originally developed in 1993 it allowed customers to download their Forums without having to be tied up on a dial-up call. Even with the onset of broadband is remains a popular platform for download, reading and replying to Forums in a similar fashion to an email client.
||Vole is the Apple Mac equivalent to Ameol allowing you to download, read and reply to messages. The layout is set as a familiar 3 pane interface as you would normally expect to see from a mail client such as Outlook or Entourage. However unlike these mail programs, a threaded conversation topic can be followed.
