If you want advice on how to improve the project then let us have access to the project code and not just the installer.

There is no way on Qo`noS I am going to install a program from an unknown source on my computer: Especially when it admits to accessing vital information from my system as part of its purpose in life.

In this situation I FIRST scrub through the code to confirm its not trying to transmit my data, install a virus etc. Before I ever compile and run it.

I assure you that my software does not contain any viruses,And has already been downloaded 14,782+ times in over a 100 countries world wide.
It is also on Cnet.com and softpedia.com hence is trusted and safe to use.

Personally after doing a search on C!Net for both the application and your vendor name of "BlueZap" and having both searches come up empty it makes me more suspicious than before.

Remember you can't expect everyone to just trust you on blind faith. Its your responsibility to give people a reason to trust you. In the absence of anything reassuring the prudent internet user should be paranoid. I would suggest you put some of those trusted links on your own page so people can confirm.

That's just my suggestion for how you can improve the product.

Well of course. Now that a stranger has assured me he is safe I have no reason to fear getting into his van. I mean someone trying to distribute a virus would never actually lie about it, right?

If you do, please give me feedback on my software.If you don't, replying to this will be a waste of your time.

Due to Cnet.com having many procedural steps before accepting a software,the version on Cnet.com is outdated and i have already released version 8

Softpedia.com
and
Sourceforge.net have the latest version

This is my official Website -

Right. We know that. That's why I searched for "Bluezap".
But as C!Net said "0 results for 'bluezap' so we searched for 'Blueray'"
Take a second look at the screen capture I posted and you see that in the lower right corner.

I'm as willing as the next guy to admit I screwed up. Or acknowledge that maybe server gremlins kept CNet from find it/you that time so I just ran the search again.

If you are paying for their advertising them please feel free to use these screen shots to argue with their billing department.

At this point I am personally curious, as I think you would be considering your lively hood is closely tied to this. So I have two questions:
  • For everyone: If you search for "bluezap" on Cnet.com does it find his results or show 0?
  • For bluezap: Can you include a link to the page that cnet provides you? Live links, unlike jpegs, can't really be manufactured.

I don't know why,all i know is that my website and my software are both safe.
Forget i ever asked for advice,clearly all you people have major trust issues,even after i have given so much of proof as to its legitimacy no one believes me.
Thank you and have a good day :)

I searched his name on Cnet.com and the result did appear:

And here's the page for it:

I understand why everybody's so hesitant to download the file though.

Good luck with your project BlueZap :)
