Password Corral was originally created because I didn't like
the choices I had out there for freeware password managers and
I found the shareware programs too costly for what they were
offering. Password Corral was designed with the idea that if it
was something I would use, it would probably be something others
would use as well.
That strategy has worked great so far. More than that, your great
suggestions have proven very valuable. But moving forward I've come
to realize that just what I believe Password Corral should be no
longer will suffice.
Hence I've decided to put up this first survey about the possible
direction of the next major version of Password Corral. I had
originally decided that it would be neat to have Password Corral
manage other types of information, like contacts and loose notes.
A number of users have raised concerns, rightfully so, that the
program not become clogged up doing things that is beyond it's
current scope of password management.
So what's your opinion? Should Password Corral handle other types
of information, or should it be password management only? Check the
new Survey section and give me your answer to this question! There
may be more surveys down the road, but this was the first biggest
question that I wanted feedback on.
Keep in mind that the surveys send simple e-mails to me with your
responses, so you won't see a real-time update of responses when
you answer the survey - since Cygnus Productions is a freeware only
business for the moment, there's no revenue for me to put a database
on the backend to manage the responses in real-time. I'll do my best
to update the survey responses as often as possible.
Now's your chance to let me know how you feel about this possible
major change to Password Corral. If the majority feel it's a bad
idea to extend the program to other information types, you can bet
Thanks for your continued support!
