Our Mission

Dear Visitor,
Our goal is to make a Freeware Software Develoment company.

Our objective is to rely on users for the definition of what programs to develop, and what functionalities to add. This is why we chose UD Soft (from User-Defined Software) as the name of our company.
We rely purely on donations to sustain the software development costs. Donations will also allow us to keep on working on patches and updates.
We think our kind of company, if economically sustainable, could really challenge the software industry as we know know it. Our company could deliver to the user the program he wants, with the features he desires, for free, allowing him to contribute as much as he thinks the program is worth to him.

This is our pilot project. If we will be able to collect enough funds to be able to payback the initial investment for the Outlook-Google Calendar Sync app we will launch the company and start investing more resources and time in this business venture.
In our forum you can already find a section for new software requests. That is where we'll start for our next phase, if this first pilot works out.

If you like the idea of a software house like the one we have in mind, please support us. Your support will be decisive.

Project started

I have been waiting for many months for google to update its sync program with Ms Outlook 2010 64 Bits. Google has never released such a simple program, for a reason we have yet to understand.
I have found a programmer who will make such a program. He asked me an investment of 300 USD to develop it.

I have assigned him the work and he started working on it a week ago. The program is now on apha testing phase. As soon as the program will be testable on a broader user base I will publish here the first beta version. First beta is expected to be out in less than a week. Please subscribe to this blog to be notified as soon as it is available.

I will make a forum where users can report issues with the program, request patches and updates.

I will distribute the program freeware and rely on donations hoping to cover the initial investment and future development costs for patches and updates. If we should be able to cover the initial investment of 300 USD I will start asking for update suggestions. The forum users will be able to vote for which updates to develop and the update fund raising will start.

My dream is to make a software house that develops and publishes free software based on user requests and donations. I think that the future in software is freeware, through user support and donations.
