Warm Welcome for WinPatrol 2014 Preview
It took a few more days than expected but this years first version of WinPatrol went live January 24th just after midnight EST. It’s been a day and a half and I’ve had a great response to what technically is version 30.0. So far we’ve had over 10,000 download and installs with 99% of our Email are requests for misplaced PLUS codes.
I have managed to confuse some people with the term Preview and attempts to improve the wording of some options.
Preview is often used by software companies when they release software which hasn’t been sufficiently tested. Beta testing is nearly impossible with so many Windows configurations. A typical Preview release is required to have the critical mass needed. WinPatrol 2014 Preview is more like a movie preview. It’s meant to show you what we’ve created and let you know better things are still coming. It demonstrates the commitment on our part to keep working on new features without tricking users into downloading unwanted software.
We depend on user satisfaction to cover the cost of development. I have a Google Alert set for “WinPatrol” and was pleased to see that WinPatrol 2014 news is already starting to spread starting with the following sites.
