If they let me test the full version, and I like it, I'm buying it. The free version is worthless and leaves you wondering if the sketching aspect is fluid or the maps look nice, etc. I'm not good with the ever increasing monopoly of A la Mode or the poor business decisions and nickel & diming of Bradford. They need some competition.
Its your business and your choice. I think we all just wanted you to be aware of possible problems. I understand not wanting to use the ever increasing monopoly of alamode. I have long felt the same way. But after some recent frustration with ACI I am looking to alamode or NCV as my next forms provider.
I really don't see the advantage of using online forms. You still need your computer. So whats the difference in convenience if the software is installed on your machine or on the net? Its the same computer sitting in your lap either way.
