    Default Has anyone heard of this magazine?

    I got an email this morning from a German magazine asking for permission to publish one of my applications on a cd to include with their magazine but me being from the US I am not familiar with alot of magazines abroad. Just wondering has anyone heard of this magazine and are they legit. So many scams around you never know.

    No harm in saying yes, as long as the magazines re-distribute it as freeware.

    I agree. Just curious as to its existance. Kinda reminded me of PC World magazine but alas I can't read German.

    Yea, from what I gather it's for their October issue roundup of must have freeware.

    Making sure it's listed as a TWC application. Get some limelight on the site if it isn't bogus

    hi !

    not really sure what you mean by "legit" ?

    i think i have seen the magazine before, in shops in Germany, but maybe also in the local library which previously had several german computermagazines.

    at least i remember "CHIP", it could have been "com!" too.

    looking at their own website, it seems they have been around for several years, since they mention older magazines from 2005.

    i don´t know about USA, but there must be several companies that imports international newspapers/magazines, ask them if they have heard about "com! – Das Computer-Magazin".

    Legit meening a legitimate magazine. I get at least 20 emails a day from different sites awarding me with this and that award for my applications.
    Here is a site button to place on your application.......................
    I know alot of it is to just promote their own malware ridden websites so I tend to steer clear of any and all offers that come through. When I read !com's email I checked their site out and it looked like a legit magazine but Googling them I came up with nothing. That's why I was hoping others that live overseas may have heard of it so I knew it wasn't spam.

    Hey LW that's a legit and quite popular magazine, even God Mode Creator and my other apps also made up to their Covers. So no probs go on.

    Thanks WHS and Ritesh, I did some more checking on the mag earlier and emailed them a consent, but I'm glad to know another user has dealt with them before.
