This guy - David Watanabe - is a complete a#h#. I am a customer who paid for this app, but do you thing that I ever got a reply if anything didn't work (and A WHOLE LOT didn't work!)? Nope. Don't throw a single dime into this greedy a#.

Acquisition and Xtorrent are real eye opener for me as I have never been stolen from whil buying apps or anything else on line and now for the first time I feel the pain of being violated in a bright day light. I have to admit this must be for most part my own fault as I trusted the author on these apps and didn't hesitate to pay even for 2nd item, thinking maybe I have to pay one more time since I changed my computer, having had trouble with my old one. Yes I tried to download the damn thing to my new computer but it always brought me back to purchase page where I finally thought I should bight the bullet and buy the damn thing for 2nd time. This is way I think being native like I was make it my own fault at least partially. Still, it doesn't mean the fu*****ing A*sh****e doesn't deserve some jail time, in my opinion a few years being some gang's girlfriend in some max security jail in some nasty part of the country or better yet in some other country is a good reward for this David Wantanbe or what ever his fu****ing name is. And as for fu****ing PayPal, there should be a block on this guy on PayPal so people can't even pay for the damn app that doesn't exist. Why is PayPal allowing payment be made on this shit? There's a phone number to call for issues on the app (1-808)778-6899 try to call this number, it's such a sad jock, some bitch on heroin or some kind of drugs on an answering machine tells you few words that no one can understand , you leave a message and then wait for a call back.... Haha sure, they call back in the next life maybe. What a good way to learn not to trust anyone, it cost me around $80, I'm not ona get poor by it but this crook certainly getting rich as there are still native people like me whom pay for apps that don't exist!

just sent the develop an email in regard sot getting refunds from the crook himself! my name is jUSTIN ***** and i purchased the lifetime option for acquisiton a few years ago and it suddenly is now discontinued for the last year with no responses back from my emails. Just letting you know that if i do NOT receive a full refund from the fraud and crook David wantanbe, many many of his customers are filing a class action suit against him with the help of PAYPAL for fraud and full refunds. We will pursue this legally. Just refund our money and all will be well. we are sick and tired of not receiving responses to our emails and the fact that the developer has stranded us all in the cold and took our money. He will not prevail,we will win. email me back and i will send you my receipt and serial number showing and confirming my purchase and how much the refund should be. if not he will have to pay us all back PLUS damages for fraud and many court fees to fight us. Sincerely ALL AQUISITION CUSTOMERS WHO WERE SCAMMED

regardless of lime wire being shutdown,this app does still find connections. you must simply download and replace the app only with the new downloaded one,and launch it,your preferences will be the same and it will now connect. keep the downloaded version on your drive somewhere to do the replace trick every so often. works like a charm! the only problem we have now is with lion the Toolbar disappears after first use, so somehow the preflist file either gets corrupted or is not read correctly. When I delete org.xlife.Acquisition.plist, the toolbar shows up correctly, but when I close and open the program again, it's gone again. very annoying and if you do trash your plist file,the toolbar will come back in lion but you must enter your registration info again,which in my case works,but many others have issues getting their serials to work so just be forewarned

I have just re-formatted my Mac since it just won't startup anymore. I tried to re-download Acquisition from acquisitionx.com (already purchased a license before) but everytime I click on the Download link, it always redirects me to Purchase again :/ A little research led me to this site, which mirrors the file: http://acqusitmac.gooofull.com/descarga_gratis

This author is a crook, the app is virtually discontinued and has been for quite some time in favor of newer products. Sells false licenses which claim to be a full 2.x license, yet without warning purposely moves the auto update url so the app itself can no longer locate updates. Disables all upgrades on website and redirects them to purchas links to make users who just bought the app to rebuy it just for bug fixes, even if they just purchased it months ago, which is a violation of license terms for app which purchased. This product should be pulled from mac update to spare any further users the fraud this author intends to commit.

PS, I even got the "lifetime" upgrade option. I'm currently filing a petition with paypal to have myself fullly refunded for fraud and false advertising.

I think there are no results because of LimeWire net.

Paid version doesn't work anymore. Received email saying I've installed this too many times to allow it to be registered...so now I'm a crook! Doesn't matter that I've upgraded my Mac 3 times...now I'm a crook! I've got probably $3,000-$4,000 worth of paid software installed on my Mac for work & personal but I've chosen to "rip off" this program...so now I'm a crook! -- KMA!! /

Version 2.2v223 can connect to the Gnutella network again. Once installed, it offers to download Gnutella components and when it's done, Acquisition works as it should.
