If the Developer is being disingenuous and simply uploading the same application with no beneficial improvements or actual bug remedies, then he or she should follow the protocol that others do and only upload a new version when it is truly a "new" version. Is Karl Rove the Developer?

Version release information is included as part of the help files, and posted by e-mail to all registered users when the update is released. Only genuine updates are released, including added features and bug fixes.

How about posting the info where anyone and everyone can get it without hindrance, like on your webpage?

You've got time to post here, why don't you have time to post your release notes on your site?

Novel idea!

Good point.
This is something I dont like
as well as when there is no web-site.
Trust is hard earned.

Because the developer never posts the version history on his website nor includes it in the download(s). You could have discovered that for yourself with some very simple investigation.

What makes you think there ARE changes?

The more "updates" get released, the more it pops up on sites like VersionTracker and MacUpdate, the more people see it, the more people visit the developer's (and I use the term loosely) "site"... and the more potential he has to forward his specific religious agenda.

I, personally, think applications designed around specific "ideologies" have no place in forums like this... but that's not for me to decide. I'd say the same about mini-apps whose only purpose is to poke fun of political candidates, no matter what their affiliation.

To each his own, really... but I don't come to MacUpdate to see this app pop up once per month... I find it very repelling... the same way it's developer would find a porn app "getting updated" on MU all the time.

You (Radd) obviously don't realize the huge market Apple is locked out of because of a lack of apps like WL. Most churches in America (And there is quite a few to say the least) are forced to buy PCs because there is hardly any apps made for their use. Hence I think it is great that independent developers make these apps that make me able to use my mac instead of a PC.
And since independent developers don't have money to advertise, forums like this spreads the news...

Radd,
I'm a bit confused. computers exist to make all parts of our life easier. Business, data management, audio recording, graphic design & typography, communication, etc... What makes you assume that there are not routine aspects of someones spiritual life that can not be made easier by the use of technology as well? Technology is neigher a religous or secular thing. Its just a tool.

I can tell you that as a worship leader myself, there are a lot of things I do over & over again on a weekly if not daily basis. Any tool I can find that makes those mundane routines faster & easier is very valuable to me. Because you do not live it, you see a spiritual life as being completely separate from the other tasks life involves. Because I do live it, I see it being inseperable from the rest of my life, and paying my bills & creating worship services are both in the same category to be and both can benifit from technology.

Just as a side note, I dont think faith based applications are anywhere in the same league as pornography. True religion that teaches love, caring, co-operation, forgiveness, MONOGOMY, honesty & loyalty, does not cause mental damage, lead to unrealastic expectations of a spouse, or lead to the break up of marriages. It is entirely arguable that pornography is a harmful thing to sond marriages, the family, and by extention our country. it also teaches children that fall into it to expect very unrealistic things about their sexuality. Faith and religion do not have nearly the same effect so I think its extremely inaccurate to compare them.

Just be honest & say you dont dig Christianity which I can accept, but to compare true christianity to pornography insults both your intelligence as well as ours. We're all smarter than that here.

I do wish we'd see what updates are made to this app though. Its a long way off from being really useful.

Cliff...

If you were truly interesting in not insulting intelligence, you'd have had good sense enough to read my post again and realize that I didn't compare Christianity to pornography... I described my reaction to the constant inclusion of this application as a "new update" considering its unique targeting of a specific faith/point of view (i.e. promotion thereof) as repelling and thus similar to a likely reaction it's author might have to the inclusion of pornography or other offensive material. But thank you for taking the sidebar to explain Christianity to me... that was very informative. Oh, and your assumptions that I do not have a spiritual life were equally enlightening. Talk about insulting intelligence. Now, hopefully, we have all your assumptions about me out of the way. I won't do you the same disservice in this forum.

I again say that I find the inclusion of secular applications that are clearly designed for one specific ideology, rather than being designed for a broad range of faiths or ideologies, unsettling, or as I had originally stated... repelling.

To be perfectly clear... if this application were more generally targeted to assist leaders of numerous faiths and philosophies, it would not bother me in the least.

In fact, it isn't even the inclusion of this specific-faith application that bothers me nearly as much as it's constant updating without documentation as to what, if anything, has been updated. I believe this calls into question the author's motives in constantly updating this software in the first place. It would not be the first time a software author has released small point updates merely as a means of "free advertising". That "free advertising", in this case, is more than just a means of promoting his product... in this case it is quite possibly a means of promoting his faith. It is that which I find most repelling. It is, of course, "possible" that this is not the case... but I see no documentation to the contrary.

Either way, as I had stated before, this is merely my opinion... but, feel free to make more assumptions about me personally or to misread what I have written... again.

KF...

While I understand your point... I do not think constant updates without documenting those updates is an effective (let alone acceptable) means of advertising this, or any, software. I would estimate that the vast majority of Mac users do not use MacUpdate or VersionTracker on a regular basis... and most probably not at all. This assessment is based on personal experience, of course, but less than 10% of the Mac users I know frequent these sites. That would hardly seem an effective means of "spread(ing) the news" about any software, much less such a specific one.

If the question is helping worship leaders to chose Mac over PC, there are numerous publications, both in print and online, that would be much more effective as specifically targeted advertising. Yes, these cost money. But so does this application... we're not talking about a free service that the author is providing.

While I frequent this site many times per day, I do not believe MacUpdate to be an effective weapon in the Mac/PC debate... but rather as a tool for those of us already firmly on one side.

To assist your community further... perhaps the author could convince the producers of one or more secular publications to do an article on assistance software available on all platforms.

The poster brings up a valid point. My father, rest his soul, was a staunch Bible-reading Christian who went to church every Sunday and participated in church affairs in his free time. Yet he would savage anyone who dared to proselytize, this included anyone who belonged to the church he belonged to. I can remember the unfortunate Jehovah's Witnesses who'd come knocking on our door, little did they know what sort of lecture awaited them. My father was a real wordsmith. It was awesome to watch and hear him in action. Rest his soul.

And yes, it is a real disservice to all to not post the version history nor include it in the download. BOGUS!

It seems your spirituality has robbed you of objective thought. Pornography has the ability to teach love, caring, monogamy, honesty, & loyalty to to people with a strong sense of self-awareness. Religion can also cause mental damage, lead to unrealistic expectations of a spouse or lead to the breakup of marriages. Religion can also be harmful to sound marriages, families and by extension our country. It also teaches children that fall into it to expect very unrealistic things about their spirituality. As examples, look to the recent tragedies in Texas where mothers killed their children in the name of God and killings by Osama Bin Laden and George W. Bush, both of whom claim to be acting under orders of a higher power. Both pornography and religion are a danger to humanity in the company of weak minds
