Nice improvements! I really thinking about buying a subscription. I saw you have a bundle with uCheck. Only uCheck don't have a big catalogus with apps at this moment. What new features you are working on at the moment?
OK, thanks for the reply. There is complete understanding on my part to get revenue for a fine software. I have an issue with how it's done. A software nags and makes things inconvenient, eventually I move on. You released another version, so something may have changed, but in general, why did you stop the donation aspect of the "free" version? I was using that but maybe it's not good and classy for your business model, I don't know. Nevertheless, signatures should be loaded in an orderly way, not from here and there, opening a possibly infected browser repeatedly when you urgently need to get a scan done.
I see RogueKiller as a tool, a useful one, just doing its job. It didn't make silly messages or hamper my efforts to check and clean my device, it just did it. These latest changes are disconcerting: the tray notification out of the blue is as if my tape measure spoke from the box: "Still here. Grab me if you need me.."
Maybe I'm in the minority but I don't want a software tool interacting with me or making sly little efforts to upgrade. I don't run Malwarebytes and I was disappointed with Zemana for emulating that a bit. I guess it's a sign of the times: the Facebook era where it's wondrous that non-human things make human-like communications. Gives me the creeps, actually.
Thanks for your consideration. I'll have to see what happens next. But if you put the "Donate" button back, you'll know where I am.
Just a final note: you know, I really read the plea for funds on CrystalDewWorld site (maker of CrystalDiskMark), how the developer emphasized his having to frequently purchase new hardware to make his software work properly across the board, so he needs the donations badly. That was a new perspective, even though it's a different purpose, for hardware. It's often much more than sitting there and staring at monitors all day for fun, right? Your "donate" link is too discreet, hidden under the "Company" tab! Some of us don't want or need the premium features but value the free version enough to donate. It's a personal decision, and yeah, there is strong competition there.
In a nutshell: can you make further compromises somewhere? Why not consider to put the "donate" button back under the "free" column or somewhere discreetly nearby, with some light, informative text or so? I guess you'd have to evaluate what impact your most recent changes have on revenue, understood. Just suggesting-- if I didn't care, I wouldn't bother.
Hehe, if I do this everybody will be happy I know that, and that's a reason less to buy the software too. it's a balance to make, more users now VS durability. Subscription is currently the only reliable way to feed new signatures and features into the software (Website ads is going to be removed mid-term). There's 1 permanent dev/researcher and some support/researchers part time, they need to eatPlease do that. Im always looking the shortcut on desktop and wondering theres update available and i have to manually update it..and then i just give up
Well its not a huge loss for someone that is using it at home, like scanning once a month. And i guess that malPE module is very exciting as its in betaHehe, if I do this everybody will be happy I know that, and that's a reason less to buy the software too. it's a balance to make, more users now VS durability.
