Hi universityresource-ga,

Good day and thanks for your question.

I ran your program on a Pentium4 2.4 GHz, 768 MB RAM, Windows 2000
Professional SP4 machine.

Here's my feedback:

Messaging: While it is clear what your application does, you haven't
mentioned anything about wy it would be useful. You have to market it
more effectively. Talk about the benefits of your program.

Installation: Easy and fast. No problems in this department

Function: The application on the whole worked. However, when I click
on one of the pictoral buttons, the "Start" button text remains as
"Start". It should change to "Stop". The button's functionality if
fine...just the text is a problem. Also, when I select 'Update
Software' from the 'Rhythm Generator' menu, it takes me to which is basically a blank web site.
Selecting 'Instructions' from the same menu takes me to the page where
I downloaded this from...there are no instructions there.

Ease of Use: The buttons should have text pop-up when I move the mouse
over the graphic. e.g. the third and fourth buttons visually mean the
same thing. However, they are different. Tooltips (pop-up text) for
these buttons are needed.

I believe you should stress on the importance of the product. There is
no use of making a good product without the consumers knowing why it
is useful.

I enojoyed testing your program. If you have any clarifications,
please don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you for using this service and have a nice day

With regards,
