I never got an email with even a status as to Tweetie 2 but I do believe many people bought this pack as to this statement "free upgrade to the upcoming, highly anticipated Tweetie 2"
Yes, you were promised an email. But where does it say that the software will be available in a month's time? And why in god's name would anybody, in their right mind, pay for software that has not been released yet that has no release date, even tentative, and whose developer had said nothing on the subject until MacHeist did for them?
The combination of very obvious things that would cause you NOT to buy the bundle for the sole purpose of being a part of some exclusive beta is overwhelming. Whoever paid twenty dollars for access to something not guaranteed to be released and whose existence was unconfirmed and never mentioned needs to think more carefully before they waste their money.
How long do you think the private beta will last? Why would people pay for buggy software... On purpose? You think the Tweetie 2 beta will be a drop in replacement for Tweetie 1, as if it's a final, usable release? And I'm sure this private beta will only last a few weeks at most. Then it's public. Worth twenty bucks?
As for the email thing again, the directorate did post a thread regarding the status a while back, so they have kept that promise, even if it wasn't an email.
Once again, nobody is out to screw you. You and many others in this thread feel like they are owed something they are not. Even if you were, it's downright petty to complain. Enjoy Tweetie 1; it's excellent software. And it's what you paid for.
