Not only is it overpriced but appears to be identical in function to Aaron Hillegass' zip code app that he publishes as open source on his Big Nerd Ranch website (http://www.bignerdranch.com).

Whatever else this $89 piece of greedware might do, the stated function is identical to a piece of software the user can get and build for free. Is a packaged compilation really worth that to you?

Unconscionable chutzpah on the part of this developer!!!!!!

To the developer:

OK, maybe it's not identical to Hillegass' open source app, but do you really mean to tell us that the algorithm to locate zipcode-within-radius is REALLY worth 89 bucks? It may very well be worth it to someone who wants the service right now. But the methodology to do so is likely nothing but brute force given the randomness in zipcodes at various distance scales. A developer could hack out an open source version of what you are charging for in a month or so, and would do it just to spite you and your hubris at charging so much for something so cheap.

Kinda overpriced, but an interesting program. Some more features would be nice.

This is the most pointless software I have ever had. All you can do is type in a ZIP code then a "radius" and a bunch of other ZIP codes come up. It is a shareware of $20... haha, no thanks.
