Hi, Michael here from PhraseExpress.
I think they include an algorithm that tries to decide whether you're using it for personal or commercial purposes. I can see why, but it must be very hard to make an accurate decision.
We used to give away free licenses to users who provide evidence
for any claim that our commercial use detection would be malfunctioning. So far, we never
had to issue a license for that reason.
Phrase Express is below the level of Auspex in light user specific input for features, as well as user custom settings.
We listen to user feedback with utmost care
and would be sorry if you got a another impression.
However, PhraseExpress matured over 12 years and already include so many features driven by user demand that it becomes incrementally difficult to add new things as we want to be focussed. Nonetheless, we try our best to stay to be the innovator
in our niche.
Just curious, as you compare PhraseExpress to Auspex. Is there any
feature in Auspex, that you miss
And I found Phrase Express to be more intrusive and overkill then helpful.
As always, it depends on what you make
out of a tool. If you turn on all the "knobs", it does a lot of things. PhraseExpress is no exception.
But, PhraseExpress has an Easy Mode and an Expert Mode
. If you feel overwhelmed by the complexity, the Easy mode is your blue pill
