about Sublight May 2015

Used to have nice UI, now it has this new horrible flat UI, Win 3.1 style :(

Used to be freeware, than they add waiting time and ads. I was OK with that.

Now it is shareware. I don't use it anymore. Instead, now I use VLC and VLCsub

Sublight becoming a Shareware

Negative Comment by ivangeorgiev
about Sublight May 2015

I was using Sublight for nearly two years and I really enjoyed it. It was a good app, but as every app there is a time to move on, especially on a buyers market. This was due to the software becoming a shareware with 14 days trial.

Good luck to the project and let their be open-source, freeware and donation.
