Pure ASP Upload 3 is a Welcome Update!!!

June 19, 2006 by gregbo watson

Like most users of previous versions of the PAU series, I have been anxiously awaiting the release of version 3. I am pleased to report that Pure ASP Upload 3 does live up to the hype...

Speed As advertised: the speed increase is nothing short of dramatic.

Progress Bars: The new handling of progress bars is a welcome addition! They work better than previous versions... supplying more file related info and offering MUCH better visual designs. These should satisfy the needs of any client.

Extension Interface: As a Mac User, I am particularly happy with the new extension interface. Over the past few extensions and updates George Petrov has released, I have noticed that the interface on the Mac has been getting better and better. This is the best incarnation on the Mac to date. In short... IT LOOKS REALLY COOL ON THE MAC! The interface in general is much cleaner. Also amazingly, with having doubled the abilities of PAU 3, the options seem to take less space and are much clearer to understand.

The developer support is tremendous. George reads the boards and is constantly working to better his extensions. Its refreshing to deal with a developer who takes pride in his extensions and doesn't just view them as just another product.

If you haven't upgraded to PAU 3 yet... I suggest you to do so.

The best has just got better!

June 30, 2006 by Alon Berman

3 years ago I looked long and hard at all the available upload scripts and there was only one program for us (Pure ASP Upload). It has, and continues to, serve us with reliabile and stable code.

Together with all the optional plugins and other products from DMXzone, we have kept ahead of the competition!

Pure ASP Upload 3's new and enhanced features will surpass any requirements you may have (and it's fast!).  Fully integrated into Dreamweaver, it is very intuitive to use. I introduced it to my 'newbie' students and they had their first upload pages fully functional in under 15 minutes.

I never thought twice when upgrading or even looked at the price for that matter - I have never gone wrong with George's software! The upgrade was seemless.

George and his team have been remarkable with hands on support and can not do enough to help you!
