trial, registered, and free mode

At any one time, iSilo™ operates in one of the following modes:

trial mode

When you install iSilo™ for the first time, iSilo™ starts in trial mode. Trial mode provides a 30-day period during which you can use iSilo™ in its full capacity. All of iSilo™'s features in trial mode are fully functional. This allows you to know exactly what you are getting and allows you to make an informed decision as to whether or not iSilo™ meets your needs and likes.

During trial mode, you receive reminders every now and then telling you how many days you have left in the trial period.

If you would like to continue using iSilo™ beyond the 30-day trial period with all features fully functional, you must purchase a license. After purchasing a license, you receive a license registration code that allows you to convert iSilo™ to registered mode. For information on purchasing a license, please visit the product's website at <http://www.iSilo.com>. Purchasing a license supports iSilo™'s continued development.

If you do not register iSilo™ by the end of the 30-day trial period, iSilo™ converts to free mode, which allows you to continue using iSilo™ without needing to purchase a license but with limited features. At any time while you are using iSilo™ in free mode, you can still purchase a license to convert it to registered mode.

At any time during the trial period, you can also switch in and out of free mode to see the difference between the limitations of free mode and full functionality. To switch in or out of free mode, go to the document list view and in the Edit menu, tap Options. On the Mode page of the Options dialog, you can select whether you want to be in free mode or not.

Even with the above limitations, iSilo™ in free mode is still highly functional and provides more features than some other document readers that require a fee. However, for the small price that a license costs, you can enjoy fully all the features of iSilo™ in registered mode.
