UBot Studio 5.7 – Revenge of the Nerds

A few months ago we introduced a new member of the UBot Studio team, Adam, who has been programming feverishly ever since he joined. He and I have been working quietly on a big update to UBot Studio that hugely increases what you can do with the software, regardless of the Edition you have. And we’re just a few days away from the release, so I can finally talk about it.

UBot Studio 5.7 will add a treasure trove of power for those who have a UBot Studio subscription.

 

How do I get the new version?

Like any version, just click the update option when you open your UBot Studio software, or simply login to the homepage and click the subscribe button.

If you haven’t been subscribed for a while, this deal is extra special because you get automagically moved to the newest version PLUS six months or a year of updates. Users can subscribe for just $54 to get this offer. And don’t forget – annual subscribers receive a 15% discount!

 

What’s in this big update?
