eb235 I guess we're going to hear the same old tune about the special prices... in 2019 !

Let me quote Gary Smith (back in December 2016) "I see the Home Edition for $19.95 offered on the developer's website as well, and it also has a 1700+ icon pack added with the special offer.[...] If the Bitsdujour offer is really a special price, then it should also offer the 1700+ icon pack, AND have a lower price than the $19.95."
And let me quote Walter Jayanth the developer answering a few hours later "The Special Offer on our home page is an outdated one. And the price is actually $29.95 for the Home Licence package."

Now if you're browsing http://www.swij.com/sidew...uynow.html and click on the "time limited offer" to get to https://sites.fastspring....ecialoffer you'll have the opportunity to buy the offer mentioned by Gary. I stopped checking at that point but this left me uneasy.

Are we struck with a recurring lack of luck ? Meaning that whenever there's a BDJ offer, there was just before a better offer on the developer's site but he forgot to end his offer ?
Or the developer has forgotten for more than two years to update his web site ?
Or ... ?

I don't mean to be harsh to the dev but buying on the Internet, especially software, is mainly a matter of trust. If there are facts you don't understand, you're not encouraged to have trust.
So I think a clarification would be in order. Thank you.

Bill Sech I installed and was testing this program. Eventually, I clicked on the Application button down near the left bottom there (the one that opens a bar where icons can be drag and dropped) and instantly my todo list program (Swift To Do List 11 Evaluation which was open and minimized) came up and something selected all the tasks in view and marked them complete. I was able to reproduce this behavior a few more times in exactly the same manner. So I uninstalled sidewinder and will not use it.

John Moverley I purchased this software and was sent two activation codes in separate e-mails both with the same order number.

Neither of the codes has worked. When entered I get a message saying

"your license has been revoked successfully!"

Adi Abir I've downloaded the demo, purchased the product, received the activation code and entered it in the program. I received the error message 'Your License has been Revoked Successfully!'.

Never saw such an error message before? What do I do now? The product keeps insisting that it's not activated.

HJ B Yesterday, I posted a comment showing that I checked the developer's website and found that, as noted by eb235, had been the case in 2016, the Developer was STILL charging more on BDJ than was being charged on the developer's website for the "home license. ($19.95, as opposed to $23.97). I provided a link to the page of the developer's site at which that lower offer was made.

For some reason, my comment did not survive the BDJ filtering process.

i went back to the developer's site, today, and found that the special offer had been removed, and a set of new offers was posted - 1, 2, 3, 5 and 10 license packages. http://www.swij.com/sidew...index.html

The new "home license) (3 licenses) price is now in accord with the claim of a 40% discount.

In my view, when this sort of thing happens a posting about it should not be filtered out. It remains relevant that the new higher price schedule went into effect contemporaneously with the BDJ offer (or as was the case here, only after the offer was posted and a complaint was made).

I trust the BDJ operator will not filter out this second message on the point. This is clearly not a "bad apple" posting.

Walter Jayanth Apologies to all for who had issues with SideWinder activation. We request you to try the activation again with your Activation Codes.

Also, we're unable to reproduce any other issues mentioned here other than the Nip get hidden by certain full screen tasks in Windows 10.

Please note the current SideWinder is released prior to the latest Windows and we have not updated the software or website since 2010.

Garrett Goyette Hi,
I downloaded he demo, liked what i saw, paid for he Pro 10 license versions. Activated the demo with the pro code but since i did not see the 100 categories and still saw only the 10 categories supplied by demo, i uninstalled the entire program re-downloaded from my email notification hoping the pro version might be a larger file than the demo [identicql size}. i then reinstalled put in my PRO activation code and got the message that my license was successfully revoked and now i am stuck with a demo mode which will time out after the trial period even though i paid for TEN machines. I am a bit frustrated, once again a developer so paranoid of people jacking his program for free that he is punishing paying users and has squandered any his good will. please let vendor know to jump on this obvious common complaint

Adi Abir I couldn't activate the application. You 'requested' that we try the activation again. Tried it. Didn't work.

If 'the current SideWinder is released prior to the latest Windows and we have not updated the software or website since 2010' why do you charge people for a program that you have not tested for the latest versions of Windows?

Please make sure that my activation code will actually activate the program or else, refund the $11.97 you charged me.

John Moverley I agree with Adi Abir.

I have been using BitsduJour for many years and have received many good bargains.

However, I am very disappointed that BitsduJour would feature a program that seems unsupported, the installation code does not work and that the company does not answer e-mails sent to the support team.
