    "Completely useless demoware"

    May 21, 2006  |   By notgonnatellya

    Pros

    Interface may be ok....may be.

    Cons

    This may be worth owning, but you won't find out with this demo. You can map exactly one key. Yes it's for an unlimited time, but who cares? Nobody needs to remap one key.

    It's not worth the time to download, even if you have broadband

    Not many developers seem to reply to the reviews here.. However, I figure that initial user reviews are probably one of the best sources for getting feedback from users.

    That said, point taken. A future Time Limitted full-featured operation will be considered in addition to the current limit-less single featured.

    ==============================

    Whenever providing the current unlimitted time version (or demo as you called it), it was primarily targetted for focusing just the key-disabling and Turbo features of TurboPad.

    For example, let's take a very basic filtering need with a single keypress or key-sequence.

    A user under the free edition can disable a key sequence such as Alt-Tab which they're accidentally hitting ingame (for some game that requires holding ctrl/alt for macro access). Or, the ever popular "Windows Key" without altering the registry and rebooting/ or relogging into their user account.

    For some people, this is all that they'd be looking for in a program like TurboPad, and that's hardly worth charging for (yet still shows TurboPad's potential). Hence the reason that the free/demo version was built with a feature restriction rather than a time restriction.

    As for the single KeyMapping.. TurboPad's keymapping and Turbo Functionality are combined into one feature. That is, whenever you enable Turbo within TurboPad, you must first choose a binding for that Turbo key. The trial/demo in this sense wasn't intended to illustrate the full potential of the key re-binding capability, yet rather just illustrate Turbo (I can definitely see how a time limitted might be better here).

    For instance, firing a Pistol like weapon in an First Person Shooter, attacking in a fighting game, or casting a spell in a Role Playing Game.

    ==============================

    Thanks
