    I've decided to go ahead and shell out the money to buy uBot (I just bought it this morning). I've read a lot of positive things on their forum, and their website also says they have a 30 day money back guarantee, so if in the event that I don't like it, I can get always get a refund.

    The main reason I've decided to go ahead and do this, is because I currently outsource roughly 2 - 3 software creation projects a month via ScriptLance and GetAFreelancer. I spend anywhere from $800 to $1200 a month on various different projects. If I can actually use this, I'll be saving myself BUNDLES of money.

    I currently have one project specifically in mind, and I'm going to try to create it myself using uBot. I'll give you guys a daily update on my progress using this software. I want to make it clear, I'm not coming into this with a "programming background" of any kind. I'm very familiar with iMacros and have created a number of tools with it, but I'm looking to make something a little more complicated, and I'm hoping that uBot is going to allow me to do it.

    I'll let you guys know if it is clumsy, what the learning curve is like and basically just if the software is actually capable of doing what they say it can do on their website. I'm sure I'm going to need support at some point, so I'll be able to let you guys know what their support is like also. I plan on being very fair in my review of Ubot, and if you guys have any questions about my progress, please feel free to post them on this thread.

    Please take notice: THERE ARE NO AFFILIATE LINKS HERE This is going to be a full (and real) review, day-by-day of me ACTUALLY USING the software. If you look around (do a search for "ubot" in the forum) you'll find that you can easily get $50 off the software by using somebody's "coupon code". Yes, the coupon code does work, but it is also a way for an affiliate to get credit for a referral. I am not going to supply one of those because I want you guys to know that this is real (in the event that it is a good review...if it's bad, I'm pretty sure you wouldn't doubt it's real anyway...I'm just hoping for the best here).

    :) I have the same backround as you and I got this baby pumping out bots in a few hours after sitting with it for 7 hours doing each tutorial step by step.

    It's way better than imacros in some ways, and I'm gonna bet you are gonna save tons of money once you get it going.

    Good luck!

    @ crazyflx, You have had a few threads here on BHW that keeps many of the members involved, and I think its great that you do so. I've read many of your ewhoring post from when you took your first jump and they were very inspiring.

    All I can really say is once you go over the video tutorials you should have no real need for support. It takes a good couple of hours to watch them all and maybe even going over them again a few times.

    Anyway I have bookmarked this thread and can't wait for you to share your feedback and opinions. Good Luck!

    crazyflx - if you want to get more complicated with your iMacros, then you should write them in JavaScript and not the the imacros default scripting language... suddenly you will have a beast of a tool.

    Code:

    Hey Buddy!!

    Good luck matey, at the moment i am learning vb and php, and like you ive alittle experience with imacros myself, but im more interested in building my own bots for my own use.

    I had tried ubot, but i was encouraged by friends to go down the php route, its seems the 2 (vb) are similar in some ways which makes learning one, help learn the other,...anyway...

    Best of luck with your bot making and be sure to keep us posted on your progress and how you found the product and the support.

    John

    Everything everybody has said since my first post on this thread is just one of the many reasons I love this forum. There are always people ready to help, offer guidance and encouragement! Thanks to everybody that has chimed in thus far!

    Alright, so here is just a quick update. I learn much quicker doing things like this:

    Trial...error...trial...error...repeat. Now, that doesn't normally work when it comes to programming. This software is great for it! I spent roughly 3 hours watching video tutorials today.

    Some from here: http://ubotdevstudio.com/tutorials/
    Some from here: http://www.ubotblog.com/category/ubot-tutorials/
    & Some from here: http://www.ubottutorials.com/

    Then, I decided to just go ahead and get my hands dirty. Lots of trials and lots of errors ensued. However, the errors were not on the part of the software, but on my part. I'm really enjoying the software, and the learning curve IS NOT very steep. I'm actually going to have a SIMPLE working bot here in about 20 minutes (I'm pretty excited about it). It is a simple automated Page Rank checker/extractor.

    You see, I've got a list of about 10k pligg, scuttle, scuttleplus and PHPDugg sites that I want to "clean" (so I can use them with bookmark demon). I don't know which sites work, which sites don't, what each sites PR is, etc, etc. I'm going to use my bot to check all of the above (while I sleep).

    The program is incredibly stable, I haven't had it crash once (I'm using Vista 32bit). I haven't requested any support yet, but I'm sure I will in the near future.

    I'm starting with a simple project like an automated PR checker just to get a good working feel of the software. After I'm done, I plan on moving on to something of a MUCH bigger project.

    All in all so far, I'm really loving the software, and I can see that it's capabilities, once fully understood, are going to surpass those of winautomation and imacros.

    I should have updated this when I finished a couple of hours ago, but I had a couple of other things I had to attend to.

    I successfully finished my automated Page Rank checker. I simply create a .txt file of all the sites I want to check, it gets the PR of each and exports each site along with it's PR into a .CSV file for me.

    I have already "cleaned" about 4k of the Pligg sites I have that I'm going to use with bookmark demon. If the site no longer exists, it also tells me that in the output file.

    More tomorrow...

    I just bought uBot the other day myself. You'll see it's pretty damn good software.

    I say, go for PHP, Javascript and/or VB if you like programming.

    Go for Ubot, if you like making money.

    Simple as that.

    Why would i waste valuable time learning programming, when i can be making money with Ubot today?

    It is dumb to be reinventing the wheel, when all you have to do is roll it!

    Merry Xmas,

    Rudy

    That was because there was a cracked version floating around the forums awhile back and people that were using that version couldn't create .exe files with it (I only know that because I read the same thing, but then I did some research).

    After I created my bot yesterday, when I clicked the "compile" button (the button that turns my bot into a .exe file) it did it with ZERO issues.

    In fact, I'll probably upload the .exe file I made yesterday at some point. I just want to add some features first.

    So, the simple answer to your question....no, it isn't true, uBot works great.

    dang! was going to buy this software like a month ago but didn't because I heard that exes didn't work! But it's good to know it works, I will buy it soon now that I know.

    Why are people obsessed with coupon codes or why are you obsessed with coupon code, are you gonna give people something useful or free or you gonna talk how one affiliate code means sky falling? I still have to see that. Instead trying to be cynical try to be productive and useful.

    I couldnt give less shit about your affiliate code.

    It's definitely a good investment, especially if you've got an idea that you know others want/need (so you can sell the .EXE file of course :) )

    It's also particularly useful if you've got a list of about 20 things that you do in a day that takes 5 hours, and that keeps you from doing that thing that makes you the most money (but you have to do them first, before you can do anything else).

    I'm in the process of automating those "things" now....so I can spend more time doing my "money making" tasks and less "time wasting" tasks.

    Yet this is coming from someone with a reputation of 7. What the hell have you contributed here, or anywhere for that matter?

    Man I will run circles around you when it comes to profit. I make my money first, and if the thought of being helpful comes into play, it will always be second. If you want free take your ass to a homeless line and beg for a hand out!

    Oh, and another thing is that your opinion doesn't mean shit when it's compared to a sales report.

    That's good, considering

    A: I haven't put one on this thread...or anywhere for that matter.
    &
    B: I don't even have one. I haven't signed up for their affiliate program.

    The reason I started this thread was to give uBot an honest review. If I were including an affiliate link somewhere in this thread (or anywhere), it would be a waste of time for me to even bother typing out my review because people would think that it was "biased" in some way.

    So, I have chosen to not sign up for their affiliate program, not include an affiliate link here or anywhere and, lastly, make sure people know that I haven't done either of those two things.

    Thanks for helping me get that message out clearly.

    I v seen plenty of people here with as you say good forum reputation and after browsing their post history i had a headache trying to find something valuable. Which leads me to conclusion reputation here is nothing but abusable numbers formed by close up ass kissing like you do to op right now. I wouldnt be surprised if you -rep me after this because i told you the truth but your such a small ass i know you cant handle it.

    What did i contribute? Who are you to tell me what i contribute?

    But just for your hypocrite ass since we are at ubot subject

    - guide for beginners starting with ubot(you can find it on the forums)
    - helping anyone whenever i see them need help with ubot
    - free yahoo mail creation bot exe and code, posted on this forum as well

    But oh wait, it had my coupon so if someone wants to buy it can save $50 and for that reason i got -3 rep, thats your forum rep that i wipe my ass with and stick it on your face.

    Now when i am done, i am waiting for your reply what did you contribute about ubot exactly?

    Gotta remind you that asskissing to people who will later +1 rep you doesnt count.

    Since you have nothing proper to do or say i am sure all you can do is run in circles but really if you want a proper reply ...

    Can you put this in proper english first?
