"Good app indeed & ThanX to the admins"

Reviewer: -Calcatian

Review Date: 2008-09-15

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This app is really great considering it's disk & memory footprint. No sh!t/ BS attached. Does everything as claimed by the developer.

And ThanX to the admin team here for decisions like this. There is a reson this is not c|Net (where every craptastic thing gets listed under the Freeware tag). While you list all the best apps, you work sincerely to weed out the garbage to ensure the visitors security doesn't get compromised. Here in this place the Freeware revolution can truly be witnessed. Any person having their brain properly working will come here again & again after first visit.
