License for Apparency
Mothers Ruin Software offers Apparency at no charge, in the hope it will prove useful to others. We distribute it under a minimalist license agreement, the primary purpose of which is to emphasize that you use the app at your own risk. (We consider this a fair policy for a product in which we've invested a great deal of effort, and which we give away for nothing.)
You can view the license agreement from within the app by choosing Help > License Agreement. It is also reproduced below.
