According to their Web page it's shareware. However, you can get a free license by filling out their form. They don't say to what uses they'll put the information gathered. They've got a separate download link, so you can download the program without filling in the form, so unless the beta stops working after a while that would seem to be the way to go.

W@KK0, free download (and usage) of the current version is available without filling any form.

Mislabelled as "Freeware". Freeware denotes "FREE" not shareware, or adware. Now it doesn't include adds, but you must fill out a survey to download this as "Free". In the mean time, have it send out your information to everyone in the world to viral market to you.

So much for "Freeware". I understand people need to support themselves to live. Just don't do it by pretending your something that you aren't. Thats actually called false advertising and can land you in court.

No product reviewed. No desire to give out personal information in the survey required to acquire the software.

The Beta 3 now works with SMF forums that don't allow guest access...a big improvement. When adding a forum there is one small glitch...the name of the forum is forced to be some obscure code the programme generates and it won't let you over ride this until all the process is complete when you can rename the item.

The software shows promise but needs further development. On SMF forums with no guest access it seems to be unable to allow a log in.
