When offered something for free, most people's first reaction is, "What's the catch?"
I can honestly say there isn't one... Okay, there is one catch, you need to be a registered user on this site before you are able to download the addin, but even registering is free. There is no monetary cost associated with using my addin.
Okay, so now that we have established that use of the addin is absolutely free, let me tell you why:
- I'm a nice guy
- The addin is still undergoing development
- All I ask for in exchange is that you let me know if you find any bugs in the software so that I can sort them out
- If you have any suggestions for improving the software, drop me a line so that I can investigate the possibility of implementing your suggestion
- Did I mention that I'm just a nice guy?
The fact that the addin is still under development brings me to another frequently asked question: Why do I need to download the addin every month?
Since the addin is still undergoing development, I need to ensure that all users keep up to date with the latest bug fixes and new features. Therefore, by making the addin only valid for one month at a time, I ensure that you have the latest and greatest version at all times.
Once the addin has reached a point at which I am satisfied that it is stable and has a decent set of features, I will review the policy of requiring monthly downloads.
