"SAME FOLKS WHO NOW CHARGE FOR MAINMENU"

July 12, 2009  |  By summerstormpictures

 |  Version: SlidePad 1.2.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
In yet another coup for these folks who bring us SlidePad, now this has been snatched up by a new group and now they have taken another honestly good piece of software called MainMenu, slapped what amounts to no more than a cosmetic touch-up on it and are now charging $20 for something that was free and worked just fine.

I don't know about anyone else, but this sort of thing just really feels slimy. No shame or remorse. Very disheartening.

If you like MainMenu, stick with 1.0 because it's free.

SlidePad on the other hand is a blatant rip-off of another very good piece of software called sideNote. Stick with sideNote.

"hold your fire"

March 28, 2009  |  By Taz Sibley

 |  Version: SlidePad 1.2.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I also regarded this as an evil ripoff of Sidenote. But..ummm...actually (with this version) it's a lot better ? essentially a full-fledged word processor in a resizable slide-out window. Not only better, but worth paying for. (Though $20 is a bit steep.)

And, as morepowerfulastronaut notes, there's no crime in similarity.

"STOLEN APPLICATION"

March 27, 2009  |  By subjectivetruthx

 |  Version: SlidePad 1.2.0

Summary

Read the other comments. And if you still want to pay $20 for a stolen application you, without a doubt, less intelligent than the scam artists who're doing this ripoff.

"STOP STEALING!"

March 27, 2009  |  By summerstormpictures

 |  Version: SlidePad 1.2.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
What part of ''stop stealing someone else's idea'' is not clear? Someone please alert the admin staff of VersionTracker about this shameful rip-off of the free utility sideNote.

"BE WARNED"

March 03, 2009  |  By Andreas..

 |  Version: SlidePad 1.0.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Please read the posts below. If you don't already have the marvellous (and free) Sidenote, (http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/26317), try it and then judge for yourself what is being said here. You are unlikely then to countenance even wanting to look at this distasteful rip-off.

"There's a message here"

March 02, 2009  |  By summerstormpictures

 |  Version: SlidePad 1.0.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I think the developer (greatly exaggerated use of the word) should take a hint from the collective "bad press." Basically it's just not cool to try to make money off of something that already exists and is free. While I won't use the word "stealing", I'll use the more PC phrase "re-purposing ownership." It isn't nice. I also suspect the next step could be to be to rename this and try again. We'll be watching.

"Save money... use Sidenote"

February 25, 2009  |  By Rick Evertsz

 |  Version: SlidePad 1.0.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Thanks to earlier reviewers who directed me to Sidenote. SlidePad was on special on MacZOT; I was thinking of buying it, but checked Versiontracker. Glad I did. After trialling SlidePad, I have to agree with the reviewers who say use Sidenote instead... save yourself $20.

"Do NOT download this until..."

January 28, 2009  |  By Andreas..

 |  Version: SlidePad 1.0.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
...you have read the post below by "summerstormpictures". I too have been using "Sidenote" for ages and I recommend it very highly. It is free, beautifully crafted, full of features, and a joy to use.

I hope this post helps ensure that this "rip-off merchant" gets no joy from his unpleasant money-grubbing attempt. I endorse every word written by "summerstormpictures" bar one - the final "Sorry".

"Far less useful and a shamelss ''rip-off'' of..."

January 13, 2009  |  By summerstormpictures

 |  Version: SlidePad 1.0

Summary

...sideNote which is free
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Normally I don't like to jump in with bad press on something new, but this is a case where it is warranted.

SlidePad which costs money has far less features than sideNote--a long-time free utility. Below is the VersionTracker link:

http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/26317

SlidePad also seems to be a shameless knock-off if not just plain rip-off of sideNote.

When you add these factors up you just end up not wanting to recommend.

If you're going to flatter by imitation, do a much better job or perhaps even give credit where credit is due.

I am in no way whatsoever affiliated with the creator(s) of sideNote, which appears to be a Japanese-based organization, but as a long-time user who has found this to be one of the all-time best little Mac utilites ever, I simply cannot justify someone trying to make money off someone else's idea--especially when they did it for free. That's just plain ''not nice.''

Sorry
