I really think you have a GREAT product here. I will most likely purchase it very soon.

BUT, IT IS VERY FRUSTRATING when I am working and the reminder that I am in the trial period pops up. I KNOW that I am using a trial product here. I don't need to be continually reminded. Especially when I am right in the middle of doing something and the popup takes the focus away from the active program.

Rather than enticing someone to buy. I believe you will loose customers by using this tactic.[/b]

Well, I think you have a valid point here. It's just no one has complained before and it was never changed.

The reason it was added in the first place was to prevent the demo version from being used as a full-featured retail tracking tool in a sense that there is no incentive to buy the full version. Yes, I agree that it could be annoying and sometimes intrusive but that was something declared beforehand as a limitation of the demo version.

However once again, I agree that this "feature" should be reconsidered. Especially if more people think that it gives more grief to the users that could be put up with. So, what do other people think on this regard?

I, too, was annoyed with the demo-version pop-up. Yet, since it was a free demo version, I did not figure I had much room to complain. I did end up purchasing the full version after successfully using the trial version.

The real frustration is when you're typing and the pop-up becomes active, causing you to lose your flow. You might consider putting up a small pop-up message that is "always on top" but not active. Then, the demo user can finish typing in the doc he/she is working on and then later acknowledge that it's a demo version. The real problem here is that VPT immediately brings in the pop-up as the active window, breaking your concentration.

Another consideration would be to reduce the frequency of the pop-up screen.
