    I made a VB6 article spinner in just an hour or so, why are free article spinners so hard to find?? I will probably work on a PHP version article spinner to implement it on an actual browser and no file download would be involved..

    Why arent there more free spinners?

    Also, what are some features a good spinner should include? I will try to work on a free spinner embedded into a website hopefully.

    Simply Free Article Spinner is pretty good. They wouldn't let me post the url to this, but it's easy to find.

    Are we talking about a spinner that spins when the input contains variations with the syntax {word|word1|word2}

    Or

    Are you talking about a true spinner which looks up semantically similar words and replaces the original on a % basis?

    I'm not a programmer and I'm taking your word for it that it's easy to create. However, getting it to spin text automatically so that it's completely readable and makes sense is the trick. Not many programmers or coders can do that. I've yet to find one that can do it automatically. There is still some manual work involved.

    An incredibly basic spinner would be easy to rip up in a couple of hours, but look at something like SpinChimp. There is rich text (which is an absolute BITCH to deal with in code), exporting stuff, phrase identification, part of speech... all things which would require a lot of code.

    There are many of these are available for free. E.g.: http://www.wmutils.com/spinner.php - supports nested syntax.

    Business is business. Spinner is something everyone who is at least little serious about IM needs. That's why people sell it for money... Doesn't matter how easy it is to create something. The value of a product and the actual need to have it decides about the price...

    I have to disagree with you bud. A spinner is just there to help you in creating a readable spun article :)

    Spinner chief is good.
    I'm a programmer and making spinner is easy.
    One thing is not easy is if you want to make your spinner create readable articles.

    They won't let you have all the fun for free, that was just a preview to the world of article submissions that you could do. If you don't over do it, there are a lot of good things you can do even with the free version.

    People don't work for free. A good product will cost money or you can find a crappy one for free.

    No product is really free, that includes spinners...everyone doing the work needs to make some money out of it, no one is doing it out the goodness of his heart. One way or another the product has to produce some ca$h ;)

    The real issue with any kind of spinners (I use WordFlood, myself - which isn't exactly a spinner) is that they rarely leave your article legible, and sometimes cause more headaches than they save.

    I've ran articles through spinners, and had to go back completely over them because they butcher syntax and meaning so badly that I want to get on the horn with Ralph. Then again, I've had the occasional gem that came out perfect with minimal modifications needed.

    The free spinners just don't tend to work as well as their paid variants, which coders support and update often, because it's their breadwinner. I just use Wordflood (which is really more of a thesaurus) and good old fashioned handwork.
