Technology news here: GW Connect 2.0 is now available with possibility of no adds


Fort Wayne, IN (May 22, 2012) – Last December, GW Micro announced a free gift to everyone in the form of GWConnect (formerly known as GWSkype). GWConnect is an accessible program for your PC that is plugged into Skype™ and offers many great features including free voice calls and text chat. GW Micro has been hard at work to add many of the features that you have been asking for. Among its many new features and enhancements include the ability to rename contacts, create custom contact groups, send SMS messages, manage multiple live calls, set your voicemail greetings, and even set your privacy settings from within GWConnect.

One of the most common requests we received is for GWConnect to be able to run ad-free. GWConnect 2.0 introduces method of running without without advertisements! While GWConnect is available for free to all users, like many other free apps, it includes periodic advertisements. While Window-Eyes customers have always enjoyed a commercial-free experience, users of GWConnect who were not Window-Eyes customers would receive a short advertisement every thirty minutes.

You have asked and we have listened. GW Micro is proud to announce that GWConnect users who are not already Window-Eyes customers, and wish to have an advertisement free experience with GWConnect, can now choose to purchase activation keys to remove GWConnect advertisements. By purchasing an activation key, anyone is able to have a commercial free experience! After purchasing and installing the activation key for GWConnect, you will no longer receive advertisements when using GWConnect.

You can purchase a GWConnect activation key for two different time periods: monthly or annually. An activation key provides you with the ability to use GWConnect with no advertising on up to five computers. If you choose not to purchase an activation key, you can continue running GWConnect for free with advertisements. Or, if you are a Window-Eyes customer running version 7.0 or later, there is no need for you to purchase an activation key because you are already experiencing GWConnect ad-free.

The cost for a GWConnect activation key is only $4.99 per month or $49 per year. Call the GW Micro Orders Department now at (260) 489-3671. You may also order online at the catalogue. Please note that you are not purchasing a license to run GWConnect, but instead purchasing an ad-free experience during your GWConnect session.

An Internet connection is required to use GWConnect. Free technical support is available via the GW-Apps email list, which you can sign up for at the E-mail lists page.

For more information on all of the new features and enhancements to GWConnect, visit the GW Connect page.
