Just a couple of minor niggles.

1: Does the splash screen *really* have to be a modal window? I don't mind having to wait for a countdown to finish before using iGetter, but it'd be nice if I could still use my other programs while I wait :)

2: The main window doesn't seem to retain its size. I like to stretch it to fill the screen, but the next time I start it it's back to its original size.

Other than that I think it's a brilliant bit of software (and I'm not just saying that because IE5 trashed a 90MB download on me last night ;) )

Hello GFive,
iGetter is shareware. This means that you may evaluate iGetter for as long as needed to decide if it suits your needs and you want to purchase it. iGetter will show shareware reminder dialog at every startup during this evaluation time.

For the retaining of the window at the next start we accept your report for a bug. Now iGetter retain only the upper part size of the main window. If the 'Transfer Details' part is closed it will work fine.

Regards,
iGetter Support

shareware, yes..

but there is a difference between "reminding" and..
"crippling my computer for fifteen seconds"

If I hadn't been able to adjust it, iGetter would have been in the trash.
That's just me! 15 seconds is a loooong time if your very busy.

Maybe this is what you meant when you said that iGetter would be "classic shareware", hehe.

ps. still a great app though guys!

Like I said in my first post, I appreciate the fact that it's shareware and that I have to wait before I can use it. Does it *really* have to prevent you from doing anything else on your computer while it counts down though?

They want people to pay for it, at least it's not crippleware. Having your computer locked for 15 seconds is a good way to improve the chances that people will.
