Does anyone know how someone can get an update? All the sites require you to purchase the software before you download.

They're just a bit flaky...

Even AFTER you've paid, the updates are unfindable. These scriptkiddies better figure out a way to distribute the updates without paid users needing to resort to crack sites, begging other users, or repurchasing it every time they do a bugfix. Sheesh!

Ahhh... found it (via searching around their blog - "support" still says it's "coming soon"... just a little ridiculous).

You need to log onto the vendor you purchased from and (hopefully) they'll have a link to the current version. Tough luck for anyone foolish enough to purchase from Handango I guess... you have to pay them for their "download protection" scam ahead of time if you don't want to repurchase it at full price each time - try Mobihand (via Palminfocenter's link) or Palmgear which both seem to be honest software brokers.

All.... To get the latest update... Look at the email that mobihand had originally sent you in that email there is a link to 'download', use that link to re-download it from Mobihand to get the latest version.
