    It's not bad, but I like EWIDO much better.

    I'll vote for Ewido.

    I couldn't get a2 to update for some reason. Fiddled with it for awhile and took it off.

    I tried it and it was a good AT (not great but good) If you can't afford an AT I would use Ewido and a2.

    Hi ,

    I use both Ewido and A2 (free versions) every now and then, with both no problems.

    Has a² or Ewido ever been tested by a recognized test organization?

    Also, is anyone here using the PAID version of a²? If so, how does it differ from the free version?

    a2 gave me a few fp's whenI scanned after the latest update. I had an AAW fp. I scanned with KAV free file scanner and they all came out clean.

    I have yet to see a AT app reviewed by a "test organization". Ewido was just officially released so no reviews as of yet.

    I'm sure your second question is answered on the product page.
