"Developer is a liar ? this app is NOT free, nor a..."
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This developer says his product is free, but it isn't. How can he get away with writing in its description that "The best part ? AirRadar is absolutely free!" but then setup its installer to inform us that it costs $9.95 after the 15-day trial??? Are our standards of decency so low that we'll put up with this duplicity?
There are at least 2 or 3 much better and truly free wireless scanner/stumbler apps currently available, like AP Grapher (available at VersionTracker.com and MacUpdate.com) and KisMAC (only listed at MacUpdate.com). Seriously, check out their descriptions and you'll quickly determine that they're vastly superior to Airradar, and you can easily download and try them out because they don't require you to pay money just to evaluate their capabilities and long term stability.
Should we teach this developer and others like him a lesson by boycotting not only AirRadar but also Koingo Software's other apps, like Data Guardian, MacPilot, Image Smith, Display Maestro, Amnesia, MacCleanse, Librarian Pro, Digital Sentry, and Alarm Clock Pro? IMHO, lately some software developers (and many other types of business) have been behaving greedier and greedier ? perhaps as a result of the recession, but that does not excuse the trend. I feel now is a good time to remind businesses of all kinds that consumers respond best to high quality products, reasonable pricing, generous customer support, and responsible environmental stewardship. Maybe a broad and concerted effort like that, when money is tight, could turn around or at least limit the tendency of businesses to cut corners, move offshore, unjustifiably raise prices, and otherwise behave like pigs.
