People Can Be Real Cheapskates…

“I’M NOT OUT TO GET YOU! Yes, I’m asking you to pay for software that saves you time and frustration on a daily basis. I’m not trying to sneak that by you. I’m not trying to dupe you. I’m not playing you for a fool. I’M RUNNING A BUSINESS. And yes, if you don’t think Default Folder X is worth as much as a meal at Denny’s, you certainly don’t have to buy the upgrade. It’s your choice — you can vote with your wallet.”

Jon Gotow of St. Clair Software has released a new version of Default Folder, and is charging $15 to people who haven’t bought the previous version after June 2015. If I’m not mistaken, this is an app that hasn’t had a paid upgrade in ages. If this is a utility that you use every day – as it is designed to be used – can people really be that cheap to complain about paying for the software, and keeping the guy’s company in business?

  1. Cheapskate is understandable!

    Bizarre, non-sensical feelings of entitlement while missing the big picture of a superb developer who is being *extremely* customer-friendly are not.

  3. Kirk, you said all that needs to be said about this issue. This is great software and paying the upgrade fee was a no brainer.
