The First Wave

May 10, 2006

Welp, it's been a week since the first release and there seem to have been roughly 500 downloads, with about 300 actual trials (a nice little perk of an update mechanism is the ability to get a feel for actual application usage). Not too shabby, but the forum is still empty and the main objective of this release, getting some feedback, is elusive.

So, its funny that I blogged on Webaroo earlier because I'm thinking that perhaps the 'offline' portable laptop audience might be a better target for finding users. The lukewarm feedback is an indicator that people really are content with current search mechanisms.  So, another potential area is the offline market (at least the Webaroo folks seem to think so, although the Copernic folks would seem to support the original idea) where the growing usage of laptops on-the-go might see a great benefit for having some portable content.

But, as a teapot once said: "We'll wait and see a few days more…"
