    "Quid pro quo does not equal "free""

    November 27, 2012  |   By summerstormpictures


    A curious idea.


    Just because no money exchanges hands doesn't mean something is "free." Why do developers think it is okay to list something as "free" when it is not? The excuse here will be that there is not way to list properly because requiring a "like" on Facebook is not addressed. The simple truth is, if something is free, it is free--it requires no quid pro quo.


    Perhaps it's the obvious lack of mastery of the English language evident in the description. Perhaps it's a misunderstanding of what the word "free" means, but either way, the fact that a developer abuses the concept of "free" to bait and switch, makes at least one person out here suspicious of motive.

    summerstormpictures would you like some cheese with your whine? Seems like the squeaky wheel got the grease anyway and you should retract your review. I'm saying that just from the fact that the software author, under no obligation whatsoever, gave you a license for free. Now do you understand the definition of free?

    It's say "thank you for your supports..." Don't take personally...

    Hello Sir, I am sorry for my "obvious lack of mastery of the English language". I do my best, i am french.
    It isn't so easy to use a language that isn't yours, try to reply me in french and you might understand.

    For the word free, I think I get this right. Because my app is ... FREE. Just Try it. It is working without the license.
    But if you "Like it" and post a comment on FaceBook, or YouTube or Cnet, or on all other site that there is on the list at the end of the notification, you will receive , to thank you for your support, a "License" that will allow you to unlock other options, to change settings like Name, Size , icon, sound ...

    But without license, it is 100% operational like on the YouTube video.
    "suspicious of motive." What motivate me here was to have users help me to spread the info, because I don't get the point paying for a "campaign" on a free application. And I think it is not fair because an app want to stay free that this app stay unknown.

    Best regards
