So, no demo… I am sorry but productivity is such a personal thing that a demo is really required. I wonder why the developer doesn't provide one. Hmm, let's look in the FAQ at the dev's website:
"Is there a demo version or a video demo of TaskInsight?"
"No. Imaja would like to produce a TaskInsight demo version and a video demo, but for now the features page and the large slide show is the best presentation. Almost all of the features, views, buttons, menus, controls, etc. are displayed there. Please check out the large slide show in combination with the TaskInsight Help for more details on the features in TaskInsight."
Well, OK, at least the developer "would like to produce a demo" – so what's the problem? No time? Technical issues? …or something to hide?! There's more to read in the FAQ:
"How stable is TaskInsight? Does it crash?"
"While crashes have been reported in earlier versions, Imaja worked immediately and diligently to resolve crashes. The current version 3.2.1 has no known crash bugs. We recommend reporting crashes to firstname.lastname@example.org for the best results. Please do not report crashes on the Customer Reviews page of the Mac App Store; instead, report them via E-mail support below."
Now this is one of the funnier questions I've ever read in a dev's FAQ, I am surprised he answered – actually this is exactly one of the reasons why we need a demo.
So, dear developer, if prospective customers read about crashes of your app; these are a thing of the past, now everything is perfect. I see. And you don't want your customer's to write about crashes in their reviews. I see.
Well then, let's read some of those MacAppStore's reviews:
"has crashed on me 5 times in the last 10 minutes"
"keeps crashing on me. frustrated."
"This is a joke – right?"
Umm… I see. I guess I know why you can't provide a demo: bad for your business. You write: "The features page and the large slide show is the best presentation" – yes, probably so…
If I am wrong, you can easily prove me so: by delivering a demo.
