Metro 6 LX

Metro LX is a streamlined version of Metro 6. LX is the middle sibling in our product line. Bigger than Metro SE yet much more compact than the full version of Metro. This product, like our others, is available for download only. However, unlike the other products, LX is an OS X only product.

Compare LX to SE and Metro.

The Demo of LX is now available from our downloads page.
