I agree with DTRUETT1 on Readiris customer experience. I have received barrages of emails hawking their products since I bought Readiris 11. Then they sent out a notice of a new version 12, but offered no upgrade discount. I contacted their support and got a response offering a satisfactory upgrade discount, but then when I placed my order I could not download the product. They 'dropped' my first request for support for a product I had just purchased. They never really responded to my followup. They did ask for my USPS address though I don't know why... no disc ever came in the mail. It took a full two weeks from order (9/23/09) to successful download (10/07). It also appears if I ever buy a new computer I will have to re-contact Readiris, assuming they're still in business, to get a new 'key' to install it on a new computer.

I do not recommend Readiris.

You can get an upgrade discount... I asked and was given the promo code "free4" to enter to get the upgrade from RI Pro 11 to RI Pro 12 for only $60.

BUT... I have had major problems downloading the 230MB file from RI servers, and have had a significant 'go round' with RI Support. I think they are finally going to mail me a copy on CD because I can't download it.

Interestingly, the download stalls every time at exactly 137.4MB... on several Macs.

The WeatherPop developers, Ben and Lisa, claim a hacking of their work and loss of historical data. WeatherPop used to be an EXCELLENT utility with frequent version updates and response to weather data source glitches. Unfortunately, it has not been updated since at least Dec. 2007 according to their own website, and has ceased to be a useful utility because it no longer seems able to obtain weather data from, particularly, weather.gov. It used to be a great little utility but I no longer use it because it is so unreliable as to be easier to look out the window or go the weather.gov website myself for data. I do hope it will return to its former glory, but at this point I am rapidly becoming doubtful. I can not recommend it.

April 23, 03 I paid Kagi 49.99 for SS 2.x Now (6/2006) Freeverse apparently bought out SS and is selling SS 3.x for 80.00 with 50 percent off for owners of SS 2.x? So I pay another 40.00 to update to v 3.x? That's a total of 90.00 for an 80.00 product. Free Enterprise is good. Paying for product development is good. But a good fleecing is priceless. Bad Freeverse. No customer.
