I've finally decided to buy AWM. I mean, it's a greap application. BUT in my humble opinion its QUITE pricey. I mean, most of the software I buy is usually within 20-30 bucks range, when AWM is 60. Anyhow, here's my question.

1. Usually when one buys a program one has to pay for a major upgrades only (= v4 > v5, for example). But as far as I can see AWM is being developed quite rapidly. I mean, it feels like v3 was released only recently and now it's already v5. Most other programs I own have major updates only once a year or even less. I mean they DO develop a lot, but with doing a lot of minor version updates (1.xxx).
Do your clients pay for each and every version? OK, OK, lemme rephrase: AWM develops quite fast and thus there's been many major upgrades, will I have to pay for each of those? What if you'll release a major version every 2 monts or so?

2. v5 is in beta atm. If I buy AWM now, will I have to buy v5 when it goes final (=will buying now count as v4 or v5)? Or should I better wait?

Well, that's it. Anyhow guys, I really do think it's a great product, but the rapid development, price and many major version upgrades make me think twice about buying ;/ I hope someone could clear that up for me a bit :)



All the best,
D.

Hello,

Thanks for your final (I hope irrevocable) decision to buy AWM.

1. Well, AWM v3 was launched at 13.10.2004, v4 at 05.05.2006, v5 is planned to be at September-October 2007, so the updates confirm the stated in your message a one-year interval, not quite rapid :)

2. According to Actual Tools' policy active beta-testers are always eligible for favorable terms. I think you'd better come in contact with us via e-mail: support@actualtools.com.

1. Well, my bad then, but as I said it just seemed fast to me :)
2. I'll do that then. But again, I'll better wait for v5 final if I can't get a v5 license now.
But as for beta testing, yeah, I'm actually a beta tester (official) for several other applications (FTPRush, EssentialPIM, and some others).



Thanks so much for your answer!
