    "Lite and functional, but popups on reboot after trial"

    August 18, 2011  |   By jkirk1626

    Pros

    Easy on resources. Functional.

    Cons

    After trial period, it popped up a box every time I rebooted, asking me to register. Although you could say no each time, the popup was annoying and bad-practice programming.

    Summary

    The popups were a deal breaker. I uninstalled. Probably will install only when I need it then remove it when I'm done. It's shame they use sleazy practices like this.

    They give you ample notice (http://bitsum.com/howfree.php) of what to expect with the Trial and the Pro version, along with a free trial of the Pro version that reverts to a potentially somewhat reduced but still substantial compacity for freeware. "bad-practice programming" ? - I don't think so - they make freely available a valuable program, along with occasional nags to remind users that they have a reasonably-priced pro version with more features. It is only those users willing to pay for value received that support such developers and I have no problem with this method. So far, I am loving the application and fully expect to buy the pro version when the trial is over - I think this is a keeper.

    I apologize for you finding this offensive. I felt it better than bundling a pay-per-install toolbar, which is what almost all 'freeware' seems to be doing these days. The Lasso nags have no timer, and can be clicked right past. I also felt this was better than expiring the product all-together. I did further reduce the 'nags' in the newer version. Please understand, in order to continue development we must have purchasers. Unless you all would prefer we stoop to the pay-per-install toolbar, this is the least offensive thing we could come up with. I run the free version myself to make sure it isn't too annoying. Since you can click right by it, I don't find it that bothersome. It is just a reminder.
