What in the world?! What is going on? Clearly you didn't read carefully. I PURCHASED this shareware and found out after doing so that the files I split are only good if the people I send them to also have Springy! The advertising doesn't state that!

What, do you all work for this guy or are his relatives?

I purchased this program so that I could split large files and send them to others to recombine at their end. They have a Mac version of this, but unless other Mac users have Springy, they can't use the files. I have been in contact with the designer who has admitted that the program works well with PC's but it still does not fully function with Macs (as far as recombining files) even though their website states: "Supports common and most often archive types, compression methods and disk images: ZIP, TAR, DMG, ISO, GZIP, BZIP2, Unix Compress, RAR, SIT, Java archives JAR, WAR, EAR... Support for more types still to come..."

It doesn't for Macs.

PLEASE do check out how this developer responded to my problem. He basically told me that since I didn't agree with his responses (which basically went against his advertising) that it was MY problem and that I should contact Apple and tell them to make it so that he could make his program work. Problem is, the files that his program creates don't work with anything BUT Springy. The files in general DO work on a mac, just not the ones that Springy creates.

As for a PC program, perhaps that was misleading of me. HE stated to me that the product that Springy creates is totally usable by OTHER programs on PC's while on a Mac only Springy will work.

Direct quote from him/her: "On Windows, WinZip and PKZip will extract files from split archive made with Springy without any problems."

You're right, they can. And just because you say it isn't false advertising doesn't make it not false advertising. I proved that it is.
