    You are correct about Wise Care 365 Pro if it is offered without discounts. However, I purchased the lifetime license for a mere $27.00 total.

    The major difference here is your product without discount is $100 per year and with discount (80%) is still $24.00 per year forever.

    You picked the one product on the list that offers lifetime updates at a substantial “extra” cost; yet with discounts it is very cost effective and I own it for life without future payments.

    Here is a copy/paste of part of my receipt.
    Wise Care 365 PRO (Lifetime license for 1 PC) $27.00 USD 1 $27.00 USD

    In the end I am not asking for free software for life from you or your company. What I am asking you consider is not forcing people to pay yearly, or their current version reverts down to a free version of the software.

    There is no reason for this. If I purchase the Pro or Ultimate version I should be able to use the purchased version “for life” even if I chose not to pay for future update/upgrades.

    I think you would be better served if your policy was simply…

    “Upgrades to future versions of the software will be free for 12 months.”

    1, I agree your definition about “upgrade” and “update”.
    2, NO. Free upgrades for life means, free upgrades and free updates for life.
    3, NO. Renew fee is not for upgrades or updates, because that is free for life. Renew fee is for keeping Professional Edition or Ultimate Edition (service level).
    4, NO. Renewal price unchanged principles include giveaway prices but only Excluding 100% Off discount. For example, include this 80% off giveaway price but excluding this 100% off giveaway price.
    5, I don’t know the renew price in March 4, 2015 for this free giveaway, because the price is determined by the time. But I can confirm if you buy now, the renew fee will be $16 USD.
    Thank you for you question!

    [@Norman] Aaah! I think we use the word “upgrade” very differently. For me and, I believe, most other commenters here, “upGRADE” means to go from Version 3.xx.xx to Version 4.xx.xx. I refer to going from Version 3.10.31218 to Version 3.11.40108 as an “upDATE”.

    So, as you say, you will give free upDATES to all users, paid or giveaway, for the lifetime of the software… as long as the Version does not change; for example, from Version 3.0.1234 to Version 4.0.1. Is that correct?

    And, if I now understand correctly, you say that for an annual renewal fee, you will allow users to update and to upgrade for one additional year.

    In addition, you are saying that whatever price originally paid for your software (including discounted and promotional prices BUT excluding giveaway prices) will be the annual renewal price for life. Correct?

    My final question, Norman, is: Can you tell me now just how much would I have to pay March 4, 2015 to continue using Vole Magic Note Professional Version 3.xx.xx downloaded today for free?

    Thanks once again for your time.

    Best regards.

    1, About free upgrades for life, we state on our website: “FAQ – Sales 1.1 Free upgrades for life. All Sanwhole Vole Products support free upgrades for life without decreasing original service level and original service duration including payment and giveaway clients.” That means, no matter payment or giveaway users, when you upgrade, we don’t degrade your service level and service duration and you don’t have to pay for it. For example, you register via price 100% off giveaway to get Professional Edition (service level) and service duration (2014-01-01~2015-01-01) and the version is 3.10.31218. When you upgrade the software from version 3.10.31218 to version 3.11.40108, It’s free and your server level is still Professional Edition and your service duration is still from 2014-01-01~2015-01-01. Any prudent, reasonable person knows they can’t upgrade their product especially get from a giveaway because most of time, the register code will be invalid. But, for Sanwhole products, you don’t worry about this, just upgrade and upgrade, it’s always free.
    2, There are two kinds of payment method, buy “once” or subscription yearly. Do you really buy once? No, you have to pay for the upgrade especially for major upgrades. So I add quotation marks to “once”. I can’t say which payment method is better now, but you can see Microsoft Office products trajectories, Office …, 2000, …, 2010, 2013 and Office 365, their product payment method has been changed from buy “once” to subscription yearly. This change is completely dependent on their development of network technology.
    3, If you buy before this deal expire, Professional Edition $16 USD/Year and Ultimate Edition $24 USD/Year. When you renew next time (1 year later), the renew fee is same Professional Edition $16 USD/Year and Ultimate Edition $24 USD/Year.
    4, About renew, if we provide a 4-year subscription, and the price is 20% off base on today 80% off, that is Professional Edition $50 USD/4 years and Ultimate Edition $75 USD/4 years. What is your opinion?
    5, Thank you very much for your valuable suggestion.

    1, I am not familiar with any product in your list, I Google one of them named “Wise Care 365 Pro”, the address is “http://www.wisecleaner.com/order.html”. In their webpage they say “Period Of Validity: 1 Year” and “Upgrade to Lifetime License (+$150.00)”.
    2, I use Microsoft Office everyday, please go to http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/pdp/productID.286395000 and see how they sell their product.
    3, I know what you concern about, If we provide a 4-year subscription, and the price is 20% off base on today 80% off, that is Professional Edition $50 USD/4 years and Ultimate Edition $75 USD/4 years. What is your opinion? Thank you!

    [@Norman] Your engagement here is appreciated, as well as is your “free” offer. However, like *M* and others commenting here, I am thoroughly confused by the wording and intent of your pricing and renewal-pricing policies.

    After very carefully reading and re-reading both your “FAQ – Sales” and the “renew” page of your website, I am still confused by the wording that is convoluted and self-contradictory. For example, first you state that upgrades are free for life. Yet, you also require annual renewal payments, not only to provide upgrades/patches but to permit us to use the software in the same manner as before. That is patently NOT “free upgrades for life”. Rather, it is the kind of language that invites litigation. Any prudent, reasonable person should expect “free for life” to mean just that: no more money spent.

    Further, while your “Prepare Before You Buy” page states, [QUOTE] Vole Products use renewal price unchanged principle (Excluding 100% Off discount).
    • For example, you’re lucky to use 16 USD to buy an 80 USD Vole product (80% Off discount), then, your renewal price is always 16 USD per year. Therefore, purchase in the lowest price will save maximum money. ” [[QUOTE]]

    I referenced those resources in order to determine how much this offer would cost over time. In one place, your information says that I will have to pay what I paid originally (Please refer to your own “Prepare Before You Buy” web page.), which, in this case would be $0.00. Therefore, I SHOULD be able to conclude that any ”renewal’ cost will be the same except that, in the sentence above on that same web page, your own words say, “Vole Products use renewal price unchanged principle (Excluding 100% Off discount).”

    So, Norman, please tell me, in plain English and in U.S. Dollars, just how much I will have to pay to continue to use an unadulterated copy of your software next year?

    Finally, may I suggest that, rather than becoming increasingly irate –even belligerent, in responding to the comments of those of us who genuinely are confused and put off by the imprecise language used by your company, you redirect those energies to discussions with your marketing and your legal departments in order to avoid such confusion in future?

    Thanks again for your engagement.

    Yes, there are many software titles where there are True Lifetime Updates in which the end user will [b]never[/b] have to pay again. Many of them are sold here.

    Here is a short list of some I personally own with true Lifetime Updates (never pay again, ever) where the software will never revert to a free edition.
    AceMoney
    Automotive Wolf
    Note Frog
    WinPatrol
    WiseCare 365 Pro
    WinUtilities
    Quick Macros
    Rip Tiger Ultimate
    TK8 Backup Professional
    WinSnap
    XYplorer

    So, there are plenty of examples but your “free” lifetime updates are based on the customer paying every year for the rest of their life.

    I hope posts like this and others will allow you to rethink your current update method.

    I would have purchased your product if at the end of the year it did not revert back to a free version with limited functionality. All I was looking for was to purchase and own the current version “forever” even if I never received any update to it in the future.
    If I chose to upgrade in the future I could, but upgrading would not be required to keep the version I purchased originally.

    Thanks for hearing me out on this topic.

    1, For any software product in your mind except for Sanwhole products, does it service duration is forever? If they are, do you never pay for the upgrades in the middle of this forever service duration?
    2, Our products payment method is pay yearly, we explain these in our FAQ-Sale, in our Comparison-Table, in the “Prepare Before Your Buy” and in all comments on any website including here.
    3, I don’t know why you spent so much time on this, perhaps, there is a strong sound in your mind tell you don’t believe what you are seeing.
    Thank you for interest our products and thank you for your question.

    With all due respect, what product is there that would make a customer pay in the “middle” of their “service duration” (i.e. paid contract) while the duration/contract is still enforce?

    Using the term “Free upgrades for life” is clearly misleading when this is clearly a subscription based software and is rented by the user on a yearly basis.
    By the responses here your policy is not clear to the end user and calling something free, then also stating a yearly costs makes users have to hunt for a clear answer.

    It took me some time and only after going to your site and studying the comparison chart, and reading and rereading your responses did I figure out, no matter how long you pay for this program you end up with a free version once the user stops paying.
    In no way, or by any stretch of the imagination can this be called, “free”.

    1, Free upgrades for life means, you don’t have to pay for the software upgrades no mater minor upgrades or major upgrades, for example, upgrade from version 3.10.31218 to 3.11.40108.
    2, The software (each version) has Free Edition, Professional Edition and Ultimate Edition. You may keep the software Edition via renew yearly. If you don’t renew yearly, the software will automatically degrade to Free Edition.
    3, You can renew the software via 100% off discount giveaway or not 100% discount giveaway (such as this 80% off discount giveaway) or at full price. But you can’t recur payment by 100% off discount giveaway, $0).
    4, If you renew via $0, a 100% off discount giveaway, then, when you renew in the next year, you have to pay at full price, or you are lucky to get another giveaway. Because we’ll gradually decrease the discount rate to 70% off, 60% off… till to the original price. Perhaps you never get this lowest 80% off discount again when you renew, therefore, the earlier you buy the more money you save.

    Thank you for interest our product and Glad to answer your question!

    2, There are two kinds of payment method, buy “once” or subscription yearly. Do you really buy once? No, you have to pay for the upgrade especially for major upgrades. So I add quotation marks to “once”. I can’t say which payment method is better now, but the most important is the price is reasonable for you.

    I really wanted to buy this product.

    However, what is crazy about this type of upgrade policy are two things.

    First, calling it free. It is only free as long as you continue to pay yearly.

    Second, no matter how long you own the product the year you stop paying, 12 months later it reverts to a free version!

    You could pay for 10 years and end up with the free version a year later if you stop paying for free upgrades.

    Almost hard to believe how costly this program would be over time.

    Strange lapses, and not sure if I’ll keep this software. The Glarysoft offer does NOT reveal this has a 1-year license limitation. That shows up AFTER installing the software. Also, the author’s attention to detail is not so good. Their website has a defective link for the software: At their website http://www.sanwhole.com/, the Magic Note link takes you to their CHM Reviewer site http://www.sanwhole.com/vole-c… site. It should take you to http://www.sanwhole.com/vole-m… to read the information. Turns out Magic Note is a “subset” of CHM Media http://www.sanwhole.com/vole-m… I got dizzy trying to understand their pricing table, too http://www.sanwhole.com/compar…. Seems like these are VERY pricey tools, because they have a hefty renewal fee. Also, not clear at all if we received the Free, Professional, or Ultimate version! Back to poor editing, in the registration instructions the author indicates you need to click the “Ancance” button (repeated in the final Glarysoft installation page at the end, too, but they apparently meant the “Advance” button. Probably should be “Advanced” features? Last but not least, they force the software to show up in the Start Menu under Sanwhole instead of allowing you to keep it more readily visible as Vole or Magic Note. Odd lapses and issues, and atypical for this kind of Giveaway. I’ll give the software a try, though. After all this aggravation, I wonder if it has sufficient merit to keep. Thanks, SharewareOnSale and Glarysoft for all you folks do!

    [@Norman] Thanks for the giveaway and for making yourself available to answer questions.

    I have read the Newsletter available upon running your software and have read and re-read the FAQ – Sales you linked to below, as well as the “renewal price unchanged principle” mentioned here: http://www.sanwhole.com/renew.html . I still do not know exactly what to expect in terms of the program’s full-functioning lifespan including upgrades/patches and renewal costs, if any. Respectfully, the language to me is unclear, convoluted and apparently self-contradictory. For example:

    1. FAQ – Sales, states: “1.1 Free upgrades for life. All Sanwhole Vole Products support free upgrades for life without decreasing original service level and original service duration including payment and giveaway clients.” However, in the “Prepare Before You Buy” guide found at the link above, we are advised that, “2, Vole Products use renewal price unchanged principle “(Excluding 100% Off discount)”. [My quotes.]
    •For example, you’re lucky to use 16 USD to buy an 80 USD Vole product (80% Off discount), then, your renewal price is always 16 USD per year. Therefore, purchase in the lowest price will save maximum money.”

    I just don’t understand. So, without referring me back to those resources, please answer the following:

    A. Exactly what, if any, will be the dollar cost if I choose to use your product (with all features enabled) beyond the initial one-year term?
    B. If there would be a dollar cost, since you operate on the “renewal price unchanged principle” and since I paid zero dollars for your software, just how would any renewal cost be calculated?

    Or, as I hope, does this simply mean that I must request a Renewal Code yearly and that it will be provided for free?

    Thanks again.

    I respect the right of each developer to give out time limited trials like this, but I think they should disclose in full what happens the day after it expires. Can I still view my data without changing or adding? Or am I totally locked out? Most of us are leery of testing out interesting software that leaves that big question open. Just a suggestion to improve this site for users and developers. Thanks for all you do in bringing these to us Ashraf!
