    What do you think? I liked how simple it was before. This version reminds me of Market Samurai, and the rank checker doesn't seem to run in real time updating as it goes along but instead just has a spinny loading icon for ages.

    Yep, they said they've been "working on it for ages"... This is a really disappointing in a big way, I thought they were a company that understood the meaning of "if it ain't broke don't fix it!". Really annoyed I bought lifetime access. I guess they think people use Market Samurai because they like the terrible clunky interface (MS doesn't even allow you to add lists of keywords in bulk AFAIK and adds a new tab per keyword, horrendous) and not just simply because it has good functionality like using Majestic instead of the disgrace-that-needs-to-be-buried AKA Moz. Why would you emulate something as broken as MS?

    LTP also wipes the keyword entry list every time it gets results now instead of saving them in there for the next time you open the software or if you accidentally made a typo on one of them and need to correct it. Where is Spencer the creator of this software?

    This was just released publicly today :( I really hate it. I would use the old version but then when Google updates their Keyword Planner in any way it will no longer work.

    I am getting really annoyed at the manually entered keywords disappearing from the box when you generate keywords. When the software fails to fetch the keywords they're lost forever. Yesterday I spent like 10 minutes manually entering variations of a keyword to check the search volumes, clicked generate keywords, LTP failed to get the keywords, all of them are gone forever. WHO thought "that's a great idea!"? Who? They've had years of great software developers and now some retard has taken over and it's destroyed.

    You will receive the notice to update very soon. 3.0.3 is now the official version offered on the download page: http://www.longtailpro.com/thank-you-registration/

    I am trying to get the developers to make it so the "Add My Own Keywords" stay in the box when you hit generate. It's absolutely unacceptable that they disappear into thin air. Made a typo or software failed? Too fuckin' bad your keywords are lost forever. Totally unacceptable for people who manually enter ideas instead of only copy & pasting lists.

    No it doesn't... It's basically the exact same features just rearranged in an illogical and cluttered way. The notes are good, adding notes to the old design would be 100000000000x better than this travesty.

    Oh and it's completely broken and your keywords disappear from the entry box. It doesn't even work it's just trash. I'm probably going to ask for a refund for the lifetime licence I bought... I guess they knew it was shit and wanted to cash in fast before everyone abandoned ship. Probably the worst update I've seen in my life since Google destroyed YouTube by removing comments and replacing them with Google+. Lol completely murdered the comment system nobody checks their G+ for replies.
