After receiving the email from Rick, for $25, it seemed like a good deal. So when I opened the metaphorical box, the first thing I noticed was its size. It's 357KB. The total size of the .zip file was 751KB and that included that nice eBook we all want along with the updater. Upon extracting, I could run the program instantly. No installation required. There is no SQL dependency which I personally love as I've the unfortunate yet awesome privilege of running a 60GB SSD for my boot drive so I love the small and convenient manner in which it is given. Opening the program, I noticed that there were no... features? Don't get me wrong. It has everything that I had expected and needed upon purchase, but Answer Assault definitely has more features, though at the same time, those features I personally never used. Answer Swipe, instantly, I could tell that it ran much smoother and faster than its predecessor; Answer Assault. I put this down to the fact that the program itself has less to load upon opening due to the lack of unnecessaries. Though the search and post functions respond a lot faster, too. This is due to the socket based operation opposed to the old-style browser mode. It pretty much means "YAY! SPEED!" which I'm enthralled about. So although Answer Swipe has less overall features, the features that it does have far surpass its Answer Assault equivalent. For example, the account creator in Answer Swipe is much more advanced than that of Answer Assaults, supporting both Decaptcher and DBC, requiring no proxies, yet the support and options for said proxies remains available, all-the-while giving you more options in that area, also. The country support stands now with an extended list to that of Answer Assaults. Nothing too drastic here, though the navigation system of Answer Swipes I find to be much more... intuitive. The increase in search options and the implementation of a 'Stat' feature just add to the list of convenient availabilities within this tool. Don't worry. I did manage to find some downsides to the software. There is no 'Keyword Snoop' that I could find unlike that of Answer Assaults, though I've been told that Rick is aware of this and it is to be implemented in the upcoming revisions. There is no 'Article Search' function and it presently does not support the #NAME tag function as yet. Another implementation in the upcoming revisions. 'Batch proxy support' is not supported. This feature was a bit unknown to me in Answer Assault and seems a bit obscure anyway, so I'm really not fussed on that one but thought I'd let you know anyway. My Conclusion: Well it turns out the upgrade for $25 was a fantastic deal and I couldn't be happier. Judging by the update log on a new release product, the tool is managed very well to say the least. The Answer Swipe program is fantastic for its purposes and although there are other Yahoo Answers bots out there, this one simply wins my vote. Ricks applications are solid and do what they're advertised to do, and although he isn't the direct developer of such a program, I have doubt that he'd put his name to something that he didn't trust completely. With all that said, I still look forward to Answer Assault 2.0, since it is a free upgrade (I think?).
