What's the point in having one lite and one regular version, when both are shareware?

Is this for tweaking or marketing practice?

It's for users who want to pay 1/4 of the price, and just get the most popular features.

If you don't like being nagged to pay for shareware, you can get any of thousands of apps through the Mac Apps Store, for which you must pay up front, sight unseen. Personally, I prefer the shareware model, nags and all.

You're most definitely right. This is a "very light" version. We're not arguing that; however, when looking at other products in comparison, such as iTweax, MacPilot Lite still has numerous other features these products do not offer, not to mention, in our opinion, a much more appealing visual experience :)

Does the Lite version contain any features/capabilities not included in the full version? Or is it just a scaled-down version?

Not everyone needs the complexity of the $19.95 edition of MacPilot. MacPilot Lite for $5 offers all of the features in iTweax, plus numerous other handy system commands from the full edition of MacPilot.

Make the lite version for free (like others) and you will win friends.

I'm a fan of MacPilot (the full version), but I wonder about the appeal of a lite version that still costs $10. MacPilot justifies its cost by offering numerous features that other tweaking apps (many of which are free) don't have. Is there enough in a stripeed-down version of MacPilot to recommend it over free alternatives like Onyx and iTweax?

I agree! You cannot ignore the feeling the developer of MacPilot is into this for making quick money. They release a 'new' version every week just to get into the first macupdate page to get as much attention.
I mean, take a look at the update list of the full MacPilot . Mostly fixes for something that isn't even broken.

I wasn't suggesting that the dev was only releasing this app as a money grab. All I was questioning was whether MacPilot Lite would be viable in a market that already has several free tweaking apps. In any case, I'm pretty sure this was $10 when it came out, but it's obviously now only $5, which seems reasonable enough if it does offer more features than the free alternatives. I guess time will tell if there's room for this in the market.
