While the concept and execution sound quite interesting and helpful, I can't help worrying about this aspect, as noted on the dev's website:

Technical support is included for 30 days after the purchase date for single licenses, 90 days for site and global license. After this period technical support will be 40$ CA per incident.

That's a pretty cavalier attitude, one which will keep me from buying this app. I've had issues come up years after I bought a license for an app and the devs have always been helpful and never once asked for a fee to support their product.

You know what? You're right. It was wrong to put that up there, and it's now fixed. Thanks for bringing that mistake to our attention, Prince_Isaac!

This comment about technical support was never meant for Fusio or Folda. Actually, this is what happens when you do copy/paste from another product's page without paying attention. :-)

Also, since there is no way for developers to know who bought what through the App Store, making the transactions between the user and the developer 100% anonymous (unless the user contacts us directly, of course), this kind of comment about paying tech support from a developer is useless. There would be no way to track if a user actually did buy the app from us, when, etc.

Like I said, you're right. As a user, I appreciate being able to get help years after I had bought something from a company, without paying again, and this is what CapsaSoft will do from now on. Thanks for making us realize this, it's appreciated!

@ Leonsimard
Thanks for responding in this forum and for altering your policy statement for Folda. Now I'm ready to do business. Unfortunately, one of the less acceptable aspects of the MAS is the loss of connection between the user and the developer. As a long supporter of indie developers, I've developed good relations with them that have gone beyond simply getting answers to various questions. I wish you success with this app.

You're welcome. And it's not only Folda's policies that have been affected by your comment, it's the entire's company's policies on tech support, and for as long as I'm the one deciding! :-)

I agree with you about the MAS cutting the connection between the users and the developers. This is why there's a contact us menu item in the help menu! No policy against that... yet!

Thanks!

Folda is a template-based folder structure generator. It's the first one of its kind! It lets you create complex and very customized folder structures..

Ideal for photographers, advertising agencies, Web designers and programmers or anyone that needs to create various folder structures regularly. With Folda, you no longer need to keep a set of empty folders somewhere on your hard drive, or creating them by hand from scratch every time or use an automation process that requires a third-party to keep it up-to-date and customized. And no more inconsistencies between similar folder structures, either in spelling or quantity. Plus, you can create dynamic keywords in any folder, and these keywords can be replaced before you create the folders with your own pertinent information, such as docket number, client name or the person in charge, dates, priority level, etc. This lets you create a much cleaner, better looking folder structure and customized to your needs.

To create new keyword, simply type ## before and && after any text of your choice or use the keyboard shortcut command-K. For example, ##docket number&&, ##date&&, ##person in charge&&, etc. You can use any keyword as many times as you need, and you can create as many keywords as you want. Managing and creating keywords is done via the Templates Manager. Give it a try and let us know what you think! We're always welcome to constructive comments that helps us build better apps for you!

REQUIRES: Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8 or newer, or Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 minimum. Please verify that you can meet these minimum requirements before installing Folda, we cannot guarantee the best experience without this.

  • You can define up to 4 destination favorites which can be quickly accessed with keyboard shortcuts (⌘1 to ⌘4). (Requires Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8 or Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 or newer).
