Warning! Rant follows!
So I had this program, “PDF Software Reader”, by a company called “KDan Mobile Software Ltd”. Works well, free, ads of course. No problem. I was happy using it on this laptop.
Well, my daughter (who doesn’t drive) had something going on, so I grabbed my laptop to use while she was busy. I was in an area with no free wifi. No big deal, I have a lot of Traveller materials to read up on. No problem, right?
Turns out that you MUST be online for this program to work. Seems they are trying to force users of their software to see more ads…
That’s all fine and good; companies need to make money. But what is the POINT of a PDF reader program, if you can’t use it while offline? Not everyone is online 24/7. Not everyone has constant access to wifi either.
It goes without saying, I left that company some sternly worded commentary, then uninstalled the software.
OK, my rant is over. 🙂
