Code: Select all
I'm a newbie - only been using XYPlorer for about 2 months. I don't know how I lived without it.
And this latest release - with the dual pane capability - is just incredible.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
This is my 'take' on XY and its future. Donations are nice to have but frankly a drop in the ocean - what matters is NEW SALES and lots of them. Brilliant products with low sales are simply brilliant products but commercially a disaster. Now that XY has DP it can 'fit' with more people and hopefully reviewers. I personally believe that products like XY only sell mainly by recommendations.
A personal thought about XY as it is now - I don't like DP but that is irrelevant because a lot of people do and expect it to be there. The 'finish' and styling is professional but needs to meet the expectations before DP (Jacky's comments say a lot). But there is, for me, one major problem with XY - it is a tool that has too much in it! New converts will, I think want a Starter XY which has all the basic FM stuff and a few goodies to make it attractive. They will then, having got to know XY feel the time is right to advance to XY Expert and BUY again the upgrade. So, a Starter at low introduction purchase price to 'win over' loyalty and an upgrade to Expert and have more than you need.
Btw, I definitely fit into the Starter category -very few demands on XY but I could not live without it. I have the expert XY of course, after all I want to be able solve a task in FM when it pops up outside the scope of a starter package. Marketing s/w & services was my job long past but XY is too good to be just a brilliant product with a low sales. Starter version - there must be one around, surely?
