    "Great program, terrible company"

    September 24, 2012  |   By PirateTrav

    Pros

    Easy to use, simple but full featured.

    Cons

    Unethical marketing practices

    Summary

    Although CNET shows it's a 14 day trial and $99 to buy, you won't find any of that on the vendors website. They claim it's free, and aside from the fact that there's the option to buy it, there's NOTHING that states what the free version limitations or time limit is (they don't say it's a trial, so you don't know it's one until it warns you it's going to expire in a couple days). After the trial shuts you out, if you uninstall some have said that there is an option to downgrade to a free, limited version. What the limits are is impossible to determine without actually doing it. I went ahead and paid for it, and it's still prompting me to install ask.com toolbars and download other trial software they make sometimes when I exit (in addition to already installing some trial inventory and CD burning software I didn't authorize).

    As far as the program functionality, it worked perfectly for my needs. It's fairly light, but saves customer info, has basic reporting etc. I haven't had to upgrade or do a reinstall yet, but from the licensing terms it looks like it's pretty easy to end up having to pay for it again. If another software does what you need, I would use it instead. I tried several other free programs, and it became more costly to dig through them than to just buy this and move on, so I did. But I'm very unhappy with how they treat their customers, both before and after purchasing the paid version.
