Price and Registration

WittyKeys is shareware and cost US$15. The unregistered version has all features of the registered one but the more you use it the more you will get "registration reminders". There is no expiration date.

There are also two bundles available: Registration can be done by sending cash, using CompuServe SWREG (ID 16249 or ID 16321 for the bundle) or Kagi (credit card, US checks,...).


The files are compressed and binhexed using StuffIt from Aladdin Systems. So you need their (free) StuffIt Expander which is available for Mac and Windows. If you use a Windows-PC please make sure that you have set the cross platform preference to NEVER.
