My Reviews


Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Complete waste of time for my purposes. I have spent almost two days trying to accomplish one simple task, or at least,one task that sounded simple when I started trying to figure out how to do it twowhole days ago: When a new email comes in, I want a notification with the subject line. Mozilla helpfully deleted this ability from the Mac version a while ago, and everybody everywhere says "Use Filtaquilla! Use Filtaquilla!" Well, if Filtaquilla ever provided some way to do this, the documentation doesn't exist anymore, and every single thing I tried (from launching a shell script to running an applescript command to using a javascript alert) either had documentation that was flat-out wrong, documentation that simple didn't exist, documentation that consisted of nothing but a broken link, etc. This has been a huge, frustrating waste of my time and I wish I had never heard of this add-on. There is no point to developing a complicated addon if it is not possible to find documentation for how to get it to work right!

I could have spent much less time simple finding another email client, one which will actually tell me WHAT EMAILS ARE ARRIVING.

The only thing I need it for, running a custom command, doesn't work at all.

Ok, it's a very good add-on, supplies some needed functionality. So much so I decided to look at paying for the pro license, just to support the developer.

But then, I got to the licensing page, and saw the part where you can't buy it, only rent it for a year. Then, even though you haven't consumed any more of the developer's resources by using it on your onwn computer, you have to pay him for it again. And again the next year. And again the next year.

Sorry, that's not how it works. If I buy something from you, I'm buying it from you. You don't get to take it back every year just because you want to charge me again and again for something I already paid you for.

Write software that's worth paying for (which you definitely have), and people like me will happily pay a fair price to buy it. Once. Then, if you release a new version with better features, we'll happily pay an upgrade fee for that.

But expecting people to pay over and over again for the same thing just because you wish to make unlimited money off of them is just greedy. I won't support it. Once I've paid you for something, it's mine. I get to use it. You don't get to say how long I can use it for.

Otherwise, you don't get to have me as a customer for your product.

Please reconsider your licensing model. Best of luck to you.
