Note to developer: Sorry, but there's no way I'm putting money down on this unless I can test full functionality on the Apple Remote. Being able to only use the Left and Right buttons on the Remote is too limiting. I suggest a 10-day trial lock with full usage.

Believe me, if someone likes what they see in 10 days, they'll like it forever. Remember, this is a remote; it becomes addictive...don't sell that short.

I see where you're coming from, and I carefully thought about the best way to limit the program before registration.

I do think though, that by only using the four actions allowed by the left and right buttons, the user can get a feel for what the program will become with they register it, and may find the lack of other buttons frustrating enough to pay the $7 and register.

Also, if I were to do a 30 day trial, that means I have to hide a file somewhere on the computer with the date the trial will expire, that I would need the user never to find (if they find it, they may delete it and reset the trial), and I don't like to get sneaky like that.

What about doing it like Sofa Control's developer - runs for X minutes every time...
