Make Your Own Software Description

Make Your Own Software is a software-creating tool designed by Mike Chan with the purpose of helping you create the software you need either for personal use or for royalty-free sale. Mike Chan is a computer programmer with years of experience and has created this software to cater to the needs of the less software creation proficient. The salesletter for the product claims that the user doesn’t need to know how to write even a line of code because the software will take care of everything and generate a limitless variety of software after being fed a small amount of information.

Make Your Own Software Detailed Overview

The software-generating software created by Mike Chan certainly seems like a brilliant idea. After all, who wouldn’t want to imitate the success of Bill Gates and the likes without putting in even a micron of his effort or having any of his knowledge? All you’d need to do would be simply coming up with a software idea, feeding the general specs to the software-making software and waiting for the final product to come out the other end within a matter of minutes. Of course, once the product was finalized, you would have full rights of ownership on the resulted software and you would be free to sell it however and wherever you saw fit. The package put at our disposal by Mike Chan will also offer a guide on exactly how and where to best sell the newly created software in order for you to best profit from this arrangement.

The only problem comes from the fact that if it was so simple, none of the software geniuses out there would put in the effort. Have you ever tried using an automatic translator? When you insert a phrase into an automatic translator, the translation that comes out is usually absolutely hilarious and most of the times, nonsensical. It’s not the fault of the translator; it’s just the fact that human speech has a series of nuances that a simple translator can’t perceive. Now imagine the same thing applied to automatic code generation, keeping in mind that code is far trickier than simple language and you will see why this product is, unfortunately, only feasible in theory.

Note:  If you're on IM Report Card because you're looking for a way to make money online, then you should check out our top recommendation.  It's the best method we've found that anyone can use to earn income online.  Click here to learn more!

Make Your Own Software Reputation

What’s the word of mouth on this wonder-software? There are several well documented scam reports on Mike Chan, related to this and other products he seems to have endorsed over time, on several consumer and tech oriented forums. The disgruntlement of the former customers rests both with the quality of the sold products and with the fact that even though his products came with money-back guarantees, these were not honored. As such, it would be advisable to stay away from this and other Mike Chan products if you don’t want to risk being taken for a ride.

Personal experience

Bought this a few months ago to see if I could make a program with the intent to earn a little bit of cash. Really doesn't give you much freedom as it is limited to what commands, languages and etc. that you can use.

Firstly I found it funny that in the box there was a sign telling me that I could make a software within 30 minutes. I personally didn´t make it in that time.

Secondly, it took hours to install; in addition to this, the process was hard to follow-up because the instructions were not very clear.

I know a bunch of tools that are way better in helping you make your own software that I've used in the past.

Expensive but good

I have bought it and I found out it was really easy to use, I made various software with it and sold my software to make money on eBay. But lately, I just found out that I had encountered several problems with it, like freezing the PC, and so on... , but I think it's ok if you have a good PC and it is as easy as "1-2-3", you don't even need to learn C++ or visual basic to use it.

The worst experience

I purchased the program with the misleading buy now bonus fast action nonsense. I had the worst time getting it installed, it was very hard to understand, the help section was desolate. All the issues and comments were from years ago, nothing current. Every app that was created with this was non functing. When I tried to get my money back silence was the only thing I found. The money back policy is a spoof, please do not take comfort in that from this site. I felt so stupid and powerless and just scammed. BEWARE of this very expensive lesson to not buy when it sounds like a one fix all solution, nothing I have found can address all the issues online earners find to face.

Did help out

Programing a software or anything on the computer isn't easy. However, programing a software is not more common than a person making a website or a blog. This product which apparently cost over 300 dollars was meant to make user have an easier time starting software programing. In the short term, it did not do it's job quite well. Though, this program would be a good software once you get the hang of it. I still have not yet mastered the functions, even after several times of it's instruction.

I had been looking online to find tricks that people find after using this product, and there is some websites where you can find some tips.

In the long term this product might help you improve your software programing.

Not worth the money!

Bought this a few months ago to see if I could make a program with the intent to earn a little bit of cash. Really doesn't give you much freedom as it is limited to what commands, languages and etc. that you can use. The GUI is very unappealing and the claim that you can make tons of money off this is ridiculous, you could possibly code something and sell it but you would make little to no money. It would actually be possible to write it yourself without having to pay money for this product. I would not recommend this to anyone looking to make serious money as you wont.

This product is a bad dream

I bought this product around 5 months back because I was pretty excited to the fact that you can create software and you have 100 % resale rights that means you can sell it for massive profit in Warrior Forums or Digital point. I instantly bought the product because I had 100 % money back guarantee too. But it was a total disaster for me. The most annoying thing with this software is the interface and reliability. The interface looks as if it is made out of MS Dos program. And it takes a huge learning curve as well as effort to even understand the software. I wanted to create software which will track my Leads that the reason I bought this software in the first place. Now comes the next part. Reliability. It took me a painful 4 hours to create software (. NET based tracking tool) and I implemented it in my web server and it bricked everything. My Website crashed in no time. Now comes the next annoying part the customer support. Once you pay the hefty cash then you are history. Nobody cares about you. I am totally disappointed with this product. Total loss of money and efforts, in short Junk.

Make your own software

I bought this product 2 months back. Since then I have been trying to figure out to work with this tool. It is not that easy to make a software tool within 30 minutes. The information provided in this course is really hard to follow. The tips and tricks are not unique as I was expecting from this product. Even the GUI is not professional looking it is just basic. It’s really costly to install this software. The cost is around $300 which is pretty high. I bought it in a hope to improve my online business. I have a good HTML coding knowledge, so I utilized this tool to create my own Newsletter and emails. In the beginning the performance was good but after some time it went down. I have asked them to refund my money back as the performance of this tool is not up to mark as it was promised to me. The only good thing about this course is that I can sell my own created software tool without any permission from Mike Chan. I am not happy with this product and advise all people to check twice before investing.

A hard shot

Making software is not like making a website, or a blog: the way of doing it is not always the same, so it is very hard to have a tool that will enable you to make any kind of software. I personally liked this try, even though I recognize it is not perfect at all.

Firstly I found it funny that in the box there was a sign telling that I could make a software within 30 minutes. I personally didn´t make it in that time.

Secondly, it took hours to install; in addition to this, the process was hard to follow-up because the instructions were not very clear.

The good points were that I actually managed to make a software for home use(about music, by the way)that works well. According to the instructions, I could sell it without asking permission to Mike Chen.

Another good feature about it is that it gives some extra guidelines related to software-making for those that want to continue to learn into a deeper knowledge of how to make a software.

Too Expensive to install

I have used Make Your Own Software before, but I did not purchase it. I was interested in buying it because I tried it on my friend’s computer but once I talked to my friend about it I decided not to. I made a newsletter on it on my friends pc, which I used for a couple of months, It was great and it brought more than 3 conversions to my weight loss trial offer. Reason I did not purchase Make Your Own Software is because I would have had to pay a programmer $300 to install it on a server for me, plus the money I would have had to pay for the server. My friend did this because he had the funds to do so. but I currently do not, so I did not purchase it.

The Truth Hurts

 
 
 
Just Ok and nothing more!

I was looking to help my elder brother in growing his business and because of that I tried this software. Initially when I bought this product I was really not sure that this can help me but at the end it was an ok move to buy this product. We should know HTML and other programming languages in order to use this product and these are the only limitations about this software. Since I don’t know these programming techniques, I had to invest a lot of time in learning which makes me frustrated. But I can give all the credit to this product that just because of this I have learned HTML coding which can be useful for me in future. So I can still say that using this product is still worth it.

Learning Curve

I love Make Your Own Software; it had a very long learning curve which was very aggravating. I went through a very hard time with this software, I even thought that it just didn’t work, but at the end it was well worth it. I did not install it myself because you have to know a little bit of programming to install it, I paid a freelancer to install it for me and then I just went from there. The instructions guides didn’t really help me and I didn’t want to whine for help so I learned it all myself. I just started using the program and within a month I knew this software inside and out. Yesterday I actually created a new newsletter related to weight loss which I am planning on sending out with GetResponse tonight.

Save your money and find something better!

I have been trying to focus on making some more software as I have had some success in making software in the past. Make your own software was introduced me over a year ago and I sat on it as I didn't have the money to buy at the time.

After seeing it in an advertisement a few months ago I went ahead and made the investment. After reading the book I was kind of disappointed with the information given.

I had some knowledge of creating software and I just felt like I was reading stuff that I already knew and the tips and techniques weren't exactly what I would give to other Internet marketers who want to make their own software. I tested out the software on creating e-mails and when trying to use it the software was pretty unstable and this wasn't working as I had wanted it to. A couple of the performances I had in the program were working right and were very choppy.

I contacted customer support and told him that my software was acting a bit choppy, and they were very willing to help. They actually sounded kind of angry that I was downing their product. After going back and forth with them, I told him that I would not be using their software maker anymore and unsubscribed from their e-mail list.

I know a bunch of tools that are way better in helping you make your own software that I've used in the past.

Stay away from it!

The concept of an automatic code generator is an old one and until now from what I know everyone has failed in creating one that works the way it should. I also have some programming skills and I can honestly say that you should stay away from this because this software only provides a basic interface and is incapable to adapt to various scenarios so it's pretty rudimentary. I asked for my money back and after a long time of messages back and forth, I have never received my money or heard from them again. Everyone should stay clear of this if you know what's good for you.

Not worth it, Buggy and instable

Making our own software, this idea really enticed me because I can make my own software and I don’t have to rent or out source this to a coder for thousands of dollars. I gave it a go and I must say I was completely disappointed. Basically I wanted to create software which can track my campaigns and automatically manage my online ad words earnings. This package contains main software and an eBook which serves as a instruction manual. I did create software in less than 3 hours, but it was a complete waste of time and energy. The software was completely unstable and crashed frequently. It even messed up my operating system. The idea of making your own software was good by Mike, but in practical terms this just doesn’t work. I highly recommend you guys to stay away and it’s always better to rent or outsource your software creation to the experts instead of making it yourself. Apart from that, customer support is even worse. Stay away from this thing and save your money.

This program has very limited options

This program has very limited options and I really don’t recommend it to beginners. It’s very difficult to use. It took me a few hours just to figure out how it works. I was able to create a software but it’s not the way I wanted. As a beginner you might get confused of the advanced coding language. I had to do some research online and learn some new things before I could use the program. In the end it was a waste of time because I don’t like the software I created. I don’t recommend this product to anyone.

Great Software

After buying Make Your Own Software the most difficult part was installing it on my server, but after that it has been a piece of cake. I personally love working on different projects with Make Your Own Software because it is easy and fun. I just type in the text and upload the text file to it and it does it, it is that easy just a couple of clicks. So far I have made my own sales letter creator which I use weekly and I have also made EBooks with this software. I do not sell my eBooks I just use them for referrals but this software is still very worth it even though I don’t profit much from it.

Wish I could use it

I purchased Make Your Own Software because it was supposed to allow me to make my own software without writing any codes. Once I installed Make Your Own Software I was very disappointed because it doesn’t automatically make any type of software. You have to know HTML to make a software with this product and you also have to know a lot programming and php stuff, which of course I do not know. If I ever learn html I might be able to use this, I think that Make Your Own Software has a lot of potential and I really wish I was able to use it.

Uncomfortable product

Some time ago I decided to try this product. My father’s business was growing and he needed an assistant. He searched for a program to make different kinds of software. I decided to risk it and to try this not so elementary product. Unfortunately I couldn’t help him. It turned out that making software wasn’t a playtime. After some time I found a quite easier product for the same purpose and I was pleased with it. Make Your Own Software is an uncomfortable and complicated product, and I could make nothing special with it. I recommend looking for some easier products for this purpose.

Very limited

This is pretty much worthless. It's so limited it's kind of hilarious how much false advertising they have put into their website and program. I had MANY ideas for creating programs for myself with the things they claim you can do it seemed very do-able. So I went ahead and purchased it. First of all, the program isn't as newbie friendly as they claim. Second of all, after an hour or so of clicking all over the place, I realized this was very limited, and I wasn't able to create not even one program that I had wanted.

This will just not cut it at all. It's too limited and is a total and huge waste of money. Wow.

Managed in the end, but not that easy

I bought Make Your Own Software with the hopes of making an automated backlink builder to help increase my sites alexa rankings. Now from the moment I opened the program, even though the site claimed the program to be very 'beginner friendly', I found it quite difficult to start because often at times it required some advanced coding language that wasn't outlined in the ebooks that was a part of the package.

In the end I did manage to create my program, but it was more difficult than I would have ever expected, as I had to learn some new things that weren't outlined in the program.

Overall I wouldn't recommend you buy this program if you are a beginner because you will definitely get no benefit from this as it is quite difficult with the lack of assistance.

They Rip Me Off

Make your own software is a not for newbies, I never actually even got it installed. I bought this because I wanted to make my own Cookie and Cache automatic cleaner but I never got to create anything because I did not understand the software. I tried contacting support for help but I never even got in touch with them, to this day I have sent them over 30 emails but have not received one back. I tried contacting them for a refund as well, but of course they did not answer those emails either. I do not recommend this and I consider this to be a complete rip off.

Not For Newbies

I bought Make Your Own Software because I wanted to make my own Backpage Auto poster but I was not able to do so with this software. On the sales page it says that it is for beginners which is the reason why I bought it, but after I bought it I realized that it wasn’t for newbies like me. The software is very complicated and you have to know HTML and a whole bunch of coding languages which I do not even know the name of. I had a very difficult time trying to understand Make Your Own Software and I never got to make a software of any kind. I emailed their support team for help but they said that it was pretty self explanatory and that if I didn’t know the coding languages I shouldn’t have bought it. I feel like I got ripped off because I thought I was buying a beginners software but it turned out to be the complete opposite.

Epic Fail, not recommened at all

When I first saw this website I was very happy that I could create my own software without paying thousands of dollars to programmers to do that. Apart from that, I had a money back guarantee so I had nothing to lose and this is one of the ultra bad investments I had ever made in my life. The complete package contains some software (Main software to create new programs) and some eBooks which are kind of user manuals on learning the mechanics of this software. Since I have an online business I wanted to create software which can send automated invoices to the customers who purchased along with the complete product details. It took me around 2 hours to prepare one and I must say it’s just a complete waste of time that I had spent. Somehow I was able to build my software but it was not working. I emailed the customer support and the customer support is even worse. Even after repeated emails, nobody cared to respond. I instantly asked for refund and after a lot of emails and stuff finally my refund was granted. All in all total waste of time and money. Not recommended by me at all.

A complete fail

Please don't waste your money on this one. The sales page was good, but it never stood up to what I was promised. I bought this in the middle of last year thinking that I won't have to pay another programmer to make a simple bot for me when I need one. This software simply does not work at all.

In the designers own words, "Great"

In my opinion this product is a box full of ridiculous hype, followed with crazy promises, and a tight-knit Terms of Service.

Now, I bought this program, and won't give much away of the actual specs (you can easily find that on the website itself), but what I will tell you is that in my opinion it is a total waste of money. The "programs" made by this software are very useless and cookie-cutter.

I promptly asked for my money back, within the trial period, and I dealt with what must have been the rudest Customer Support on the internet, but I did manage to get my money back and the free bonuses.

In short, please don't waste your money on this, instead use that $200 to go towards learning how to work with C and C+.

I'm sorry, it's just not that easy

Being a programmer myself, I found myself testing this out if it really was a big deal. The answer is much to my regret, no. It provides a basic interface for creating forms like visual basic or visual studio .NET but the actions that you can perform are greatly limited, which prevents innovation and adaptability (which is a must for every application).

It's easier to just learn the basic of programming (there are lots and lots of novice tutorials out there) and playing with visual basic than to use this software.
