WtkJams - no free version anymore?

Post by DaveT » Wed Aug 23, 2017 6:44 am

At the weekend i decided to go back to using wtkjams after it appeared that the force closing issue had been fixed. I was skeptical to use it after the disastrous gig when it started doing it (it made me look very silly and unprofessional when it failed spectacularly not just for me but all my customers. Same venue and announced that we were now back up and running etc only to be met with lots of complaints that they had to "buy" the supposed free software. What has happened? it appears the free lite version is only available on the USA apps store, whereas in the uk its £4.99...... Why? So once again i have been left feeling very silly and unprofessional due to complaints by this app.

Unfortunately wtkJams is created by a third party. If i owned it, yes it'd be free. I wish i had time to develop one myself, but currently i do not :(

Thanks Dave -- yeah it a key piece of the software, and is currently free in USA, but chargeable in the UK -- thats the part i cannot get my head around as to why we are being charged for it here..... Is there any alternative that you know of that i can recommend to the customers that won't cost them?


Thanks

the free alternative is to set up a kiosk computer in the corner (with saran-wrap over the keyboard!)
or buy a few cheapo android tablets to hand out in exchange for car keys or driver's licenses

if i knew of a free alternative for tablets / phones, it would be plastered all over the web site and in kJams itself. sorry :(
