General



Free Edition

 
1.Is the free edition really free?
 Absolutely. If you're a home user making use of it to examine your personal Wi-Fi network then the free edition is completely free to use.

Similarly, if you're a non-profit, or registered charitable, organisation then you can also make use of the free edition.

Business users will need to purchase a licence for APHound Plus edition since they'll be obtaining a commercial benefit from an application like APHound.
 
2.Do I have to donate to charity if I use the free edition?
 No. But the idea behind asking people to consider donating to a local charity if they make use of the free edition is to give something back.

You've obtained something for no cost and if you've found it useful then why not consider passing on the goodwill and making a small donation to a local charity that would appreciate it?

We'd love to hear about it if you do make a donation!
 
3.Is the free edition limited in functionality?
 The Free Edition contains a subset of the full feature list in the Plus Edition. For example, no site survey feature, no extended access point information and a subset of the access point information.

Buying a Licence

 
1.I went to buy a licence and a site called DPD appears in the address bar.
 DPD is the company we use to handle the purchase process. They handle the link between this website and your chosen payment option.

They also handle the generation of the licence codes and emailing that to you.
 
1.I went to buy a licence and the logo for Byrne Consultancy appears on the payment pages.
 That's us! Byrne Consultancy is the name of the company which develops APHound.

Support

 
1.I have a support query - how quickly will you respond?
 At the moment the entire APHound team is one person and that person doesn't want to use automated scripts to handle your support query. The aim is to get back to you the same day you e-mailed.

Security

 
1.The copy of APHound I downloaded doesn't have a digital certificate or isn't signed by Byrne Consultancy Limited, is it safe to install?
 No. Absolutely Not. All of the software, every edition, is digitally signed using the Byrne Consultancy Limited digital certificate, issued by Comodo.

Doing Good / Helping Out

 
1.Are there any other plans for doing good?
 Ideally I'd like to get to the point where a proportion of the income from APHound could be set aside for donations to charitable causes and helping out in other ways. As soon as this starts I'll put updates on the website showing how this is working.

General

 
1.I have some comments to make about APHound and they're not good. Do you still listen?
 Absolutely! Praise for APHound is fantastic and I love to get it but critical comments are equally welcomed - if I don't know what people don't like I can't look at fixing or changing it!
 
2.Product X has this cool feature, why doesn't APHound?
 One of the core aims for APHound is that the addition of new features, or the enhancement of existing features, should be driven by its users.

Because of that I don't look at what similar products are doing and think 'I must implement that'.

If there is sufficient user demand for something then I'll look at it and if it can be done I'll design and build a solution for APHound. If you have a feature/enhancement idea then drop me an e-mail at support@aphound.com
 
3.Do you have a beta programme I can join?
 Not an official one. But if you request a feature that I develop then I'll keep you updated on progress and might ask if you'd like to try it out before it goes live. If you just like testing pre-release software then drop me an e-mail at info@aphound.com - I'm always going to need testers and you might be exactly who I'm looking for!
