And you aren't "related" to the developer in any manner?


Yes, Maxter, this is the developer rating his own application. Well, it _was_ the developer rating his own application, but the rating has been removed. MacUpdate wants to keep its ratings as unbiased as possible, and this type of practice by a developer isn't allowed.

Thank you for having pointed this out!

Another freebie from China.

Given the possibility/probability that China is behind much malicious serious hacking, would I intentionally put Chinese software on my computer? Who knows what might be hidden there?

I'm probably paranoid, but there are better non-Sino options. In fact, I'd rather pay for such software (GraphicConverter is great) than use a Chinese freebie.

There's nothing wrong with being paranoid WRT your computer if it holds a large part of your life, financials, work, etc.

Also, it's hard to forget all those outfits from the PRC that took single programs and cloned them with their own logos - the DVD burners, the media conversion apps, a whole bunch of lookalikes.

On the other hand, I do like to support emerging dev houses across the world. It's just hard to distinguish the legit from the nefarious. GraphicConverter is an excellent choice for many of the common photo-editing chores that most of us need. Not to mention that Thorsten Lemke has been updating and supporting this gem for what seems like decades.


If you click the App Store link it has some quite positive reviews. I've just downloaded it to give it a try, seems to do what it says on the box. It has an intuitive layout and appears to work well in my limited testing so far.



Thorsten Lemke should have been named Pope. He does the best support and continuous improvement in the whole industry.

OTOH, I'm not jingoistic and support overseas companies such as BeLight Software from the Ukraine. Good non-derivative products at reasonable cost.


@gazman: I saw that too. Without casting aspersions on those who reviewed *this* product, many Chinese developers have a cadre of reviewers who got coupon codes from the dev and who post absolutely glowing reviews.


Just a hint. If you open GraphicConverter About box, you'll see that Cocoa version of GraphicConverter has been ported by Software MacKiev, an Ukrainian company as well as BeLight. And their team is still working with Thorsten, as far as I know, so you are praising Ukrainian developers even to a greater extent than you think ;)


Since the FBI and NSA are using software that they can install on your computer and look at all your files and use you web camera and likely your microphone as well to monitor you, if you want to be diligently paranoid then you should stay off line completely.

Also, don't you think the PRC's electronic army might just try to use cover organizations/developers outside their country if they want to do surreptitious hacking on the worlds' computers by getting people to download their evil-doing software?

In graduate school the Chinese students were the best programmers, so I personally wouldn't sniff at their software more than others.

Furthermore, you have no paranoid worries about software from eastern Europe? And do you make sure none of your hardware is made in China?

And no, I'm not a PLA sock puppet -- although I am open to good enough offers from anyone besides the makers of MacKeeper.

@ Markie205: I don't consider your remarks jingoistic. Thanks for getting an interesting thread started here.


You should throw away your computers and mobile devices. If the Chinese do, according to you, other peoples do as well.
