WebAssist Solutions - EULA Update

Thread began 3/18/2010 4:18 pm by neilo | Last modified 4/21/2010 3:09 pm by neilo | 5748 views | 88 replies


I am also a supporter of WebAssist, and (apart from pointing out that CSSFormBuilder is one of the direst pieces of software ever built) have remained loyal to the brand, - I have never touted another company's products to visitors to the forum. This was in some small part due to the nature of the licensing of the solutions which gave them repeat-use value.

It is going to be very difficult to recommend some solutions under the revised licensing scheme. I don't use Contact Form Solution Pack simply because it doesn't do very much, but I could see that being able to use it time and time again gave it some value. But at $29.99 it's already poor value (even for multiple sites) if you compare it with some other products. If you continue with this, I already have two of the solutions covered by better (unlimited use) alternatives, and another one covered by a better and cheaper per site alternative. As an example, take:

Contact Form Solution Pack $29.99

How many WebAssist extensions would you have to buy to achieve (with some difficulty) what my preferred product does?

The CFSP will become unmarketable.


Incidentally, one of the alternative solutions I referred to earlier (I won't say which one it is) has the most sophisticated image uploading, editing and organising management system (multiple galleries, multiple albums, multiple users (either Admin or Editor status) + loads of features) and can be implemented for around $70. (PowerGallery regular price $99.99) Oh yes, and it does video galleries too.
