Testimonials: What Folks Say About Us
I liked the types of programs you have for download (I grabbed Process Tamer, Desktop Corral, Screenshot Captor, and System Path Commander) and I *love* the coding snacks concept. I will definitely be taking advantage of it. Finally, I like the idea that the amount of donation is entirely up to me..
I think the coupon codes/discounts for commercial software discussed in your reviews is a good idea. It can make a donation have zero or negative cost, and then all you need to overcome is inertia.
It's nice to see more honest software review sites, with great thought put into the reviews. I really like the way you break down the programs, also offering other programs listed in the same competing fields on the side.
I found out about your site about two weeks ago when somebody from my "internet home", (http://www.dslreports.com), posted a link to your best text-editor review. I read it and immediately fell in love with the site and the style of the review. It's really hard to find solid, comprehensive software reviews these days. DonationsCoder.com topped everything I had seen before. I don't know what it is... either people don't realize that when you are in the market to buy software you'd like an in-depth, real-world, hands-on, insightful review of the application you intend to buy, or there simply aren't enough sites out there made by people who are willing to spend their time testing software thoroughly and then writing about it..I just love the site.
After joining I was reading through some of the site, actually most all of it. I was lost in computer geek cyberspace for about 4.5 hours. Time well spent.. When I saw the way you laid out your membership system I was instantly gratified.. Thank you for setting a good example and I hope that many will follow. You're in my daily favorites now and will be for a long time to come.
I found out about your site in the alt.comp.freeware newsgroup.. 'Process Tamer' saved my butt more than once, "Url Snooper" saved me a lot of time.. But my favourite of your programs is definitely 'Find and Run Robot'.
As to what made me donate, I'm a software developer myself.. It seems right to give back, particularly when someone is doing something as inarguably good as making software (useful software) available to everyone, even people who have little (or no) money. I can afford to pay for it. I am glad to do so.
I believe I first heard of findandrunrobot at the site, Shell Extension City.. I've been using findandrun for several months now, and I've been lurking in the forums reading up on your whole philosophy and checking out some of your other apps (ie process tamer). I think the approach you're taking is admirable, particularly in this age of obnoxious promotion of everything. I believe products should speak for themselves, and in my opinion, findandrunrobot speaks volumes.
