Im not sure I'm happy about the way this is done.
I've got mail like willwgm3. Well the point is I would gladly purchased the upgrade (or lived without it and kept my mouth shut) if not for few things:
- update showed no warning whatsoever about license termination
- I checked upgrade page and concluded as we were told we are getting full versions (not restricted promo versions) that we qualify for free upgrade
- only after the upgrade was done we get to know that we will not qualify
There were some ways to avoid this confusion eg. "free updates until version 5" (although they probably knew there will be none), or even "MacHeist buyers not qualify for free upgrade " could save a situation a bit.
Anyway, since I'm sure they well knew when will they publish the upgrade before they took part in MacHeist, they should have clearly stated that the licenses are restricted.
The way this is done, the only thing we can see this is as a calculated and cheesy sales tactic (
I know it was bonus app and not "bundle app", so it's clear they were in it to promote new version, and I have no problems with that whatsoever, had they promoted it that way.
Although I like SpeedDownload I'm not buying it mainly because I feel like im being forced to buy. I'll try to downgrade and if it wont work I'm quitting this app.
