    It is a very good attempt to promote local Software Developers. Hope it pays out.

    The currently listed software is mostly free. Looks like someone spent an hour or two on download.cnet.com and randomly picked up free software. Interestingly, he even copied the comments by CNET Editor’s, which is a copy right issue, as stated on CNET website.

    “Thank you for your interest in reusing our content. Since all our editorial content is copyrighted, permission is necessary in order to reuse. Our partner, The YGS Group, will walk you through the process and present the many custom products available. ”

    Here is an example from Wi-Tribe;

    And original link on CNET

    Copied Content as displayed under ‘Details’

    “The freeware CCleaner hasn’t seen many major revisions since Piriform launched it in 2004, so when you do see a major update, you can be assured that it’s going to come with impressive new tools. CCleaner 3 doesn’t disappoint on that front, introducing two major new features that make it worth the upgrade.”

      Pakistani apni trade mark harkatun sy baaz nahi aa saktay. Will Propakistani please point it out in this blogpost?

  • When we can sell our software in international markets with 100% revenue why give 35% to wi-tribe.

  • M. Rafay

    Well this is an excellent initiative by witribe. But I wonder if they have set up any quality assurance department to test and verify the legitimacy of software submitted to the portal.

  • Ek teer se 2 shikar ka to suna hoga, wi-tire is here for “Ek teer se 3 shikar”

    1) Off-course, apni market bhi to barhani hai, nice way of gaining attention of internet users
    2) Developers hazraat ki dilchaspi
    3) 35% mehnat karnay walay ko, baqi wi-tribe ke account main

    Amazingly Evil-Genius

    Dear ((Blind)) Customer ‘Care’

    I am still awaiting your support regarding bed signal in i-10/1 from last four weeks. I am not able to receive your service by ‘Indore’ device inside my home. If you think this device is ‘rough & tough’ for out side used; then OK.
