Right,

This is not totally Diamond related but it’s the reason for my moan so here I go...

I’m sure there are others in the same boat here with SOTI Pocket Controller but ive not seen/read about it before.

I get my new diamond :( and today I though I would install pocket controller, no problems so far, after a few mins of use I think ill switch the skin mode on and download the HTC Diamond skin... and.... WHAT!!! :-

So I can’t use a skin!! (One nice part of the application) and 'technically' no longer functions as advertised :D

Tried their technical support and they just posted back an answer from their database with no human understanding in the reply :D

I am NOT spending $31 (that’s with the 20% off) just for a new SKIN! that’s outrageous! It might be different if I was buying a new version of the software but im not.

So, just to sum up, BE WARNED!

P.S. what also really annoys me is ive even done a skin for them in the past!!!! :angry:

Been awhile since I used SOTI, so you have to subscribe to use their skins.
Suppose you are just paying for a service and unlike MoDaCo they charge for themes etc.

You can just start using EveryWAN Remote Support Personal Edition, which is totally free, with totally free skins, for any use, even in your company.

How cool is that ?

If you don't find the skin you look for go to the EveryBlog section on the Sparus Software site, new skins are posted regularly.
