What is the Deal
I downloaded both these softwares and sent in requests for free software licenses – both the free software keys arrived in my email inbox in a few minutes. Now I am starting to experiment with these tools and incorporate them in my blogging routine… should be screencasting soon and lookout for better screenshots too.
Remember that both these downloads are not the latest version of these softwares which would of course have many more advanced features. But which software seller will giveaway the latest version of their bestselling softwares for free. These not-so-latest versions will perform most tasks that are required by bloggers, and if you like it so much, you can always upgrade to the current version at half the price (and they believe you will pay for upgrades because these tools are so good!)
