Ryan Linn is back with another video. This time he explores a new commercial tool that has been spawned from a free tool. But in a twist, this one comes from the same man who wrote the free version. Got to love an entrepreneurial spirit!
Let us know what you think about the tool, it's cost, plans to give it a try or anything else that hits your brain.
