What happens if my free 3 months license expires?
You will always be able to renew the license in the link above. Until you do it, don't worry, if your license expires the only drawback will be an "ugly" red message on the top of the app but everything will continue working normally.
Which are the advantages of becoming a gold user?
The difference between gold user licenses and free licenses is that free licenses are only valid for 3 months and gold user licenses are lifetime.
There are several ways of becoming a gold user, helping is one of them. Share your themes, skins and tricks with the comunity, give good ideas or provide constructive feedback and you'll be rewarded with a gold user account. Donators are also rewarded with a gold user account . Even by donating 1€ you will automatically get your gold user license.

What is the licensing system meant for?
There are several targets of this licensing system:
- Increase the comunity contributions.
- Ensure that the apps are not sold without the author permission.
- Force third party download sites to post a link to the authors web or at least make the final user know where to find the original site.
- Last but not least.. increase the number of visits to the web and the donations.
Note that using the app is still free as you can always get a free license when it expires .
