Last month I received an email from, Jessica, a representative of Burk & Company LLC, asking me if I would do a review of a software application called RedactIt. At the time I was getting ready to go on vacation so I asked that she contact me after vacation and I would look into it. As promised, Jessica emailed me when I got back and we scheduled a meeting with a representative of RedactIt. The meeting took place over another application called GoToMeeting, and because I work a full-time job and cannot be available during the day while I’m at work (I don’t think the boss would appreciate it) we scheduled it for Good Friday. I know, I know, not very christian of me. But one’s gotta do what one’s gotta do.
I want to thank all that were present at the meeting for taking the time on a holiday weekend to walk me through the application, which I have to say; looks amazing.
For about one hour I was able to see and experience a small sample of what the software is capable of and came away not regretting my decision to agree to do the review. So why have I not done a review yet? I still have not had the time to download the application onto my computer. I am hoping to do that this weekend and then test it for 15 days. Jessica did mention that if I needed more time I could just call and they would allow me more time on my trial period. I intend on taking full advantage of the application and provide you with a thorough review of it. Just give me a few weeks.
My initial thoughts? Well, during the meeting I was advised that the software is not Mac compatible and although I can download Parallels on my Mac, I do not want to go that route. In this house we are Mac people and the only PC I currently own is a notepad that I absolutely hate. I stressed that this is a very important upgrade for me and if it is important to me, some of my readers may feel the same way. Despite this Mac compatibility problem my first impression of the application is good and I am looking forward to testing it on my own.
