Looks awful, works great.  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've used MultiPSK off and on over the years. It will operate on just about any digital mode you wish, except JT-9. It's one of the few, maybe the only program that will run JT-65 and also PSK and RTTY modes. Most modes are those that are seldom, if ever, used. Decoding is great, the program interfaces with other loggers, and is quite feature rich; a lot to learn and experiment with. Complaining about the look is NOT being picky or whiny, it is a valid criticism! The screen has very tiny buttons, some almost as small as my cursor pointer, making them hard to see and find. The button labels must use a very small font in order for the label to fit the button! Running the program at full screen helps somewhat. Plus, there is that moldy-green overall color! There is no LoTW or eQSL support. I think many more people would use the program if it just looked better. I'm normally one to prefer functionality over looks but in this case.. ugh. I'd give it a 5 otherwise; it is still a very good program. There are regular updates and registering it ($) will open up even more functions.

The Dog's Breakfast  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Anyone experienced in building software for a user community knows the end user experience will often define how well that software is received. It dosen't matter whether it''s intended for professionals or hobbyists or even how well it works. If the user experience is crummy the software will be regarded the same way. MultiPSK is a perfect example of this. Little thought has gone into its GUI, configuration tool, etc.. Too much effort is required to navigate the software while downing headache pain relievers to bother with it. Especially given there are far better applications out there. Having attempted to use MultiPSK twice all I can say is it's amateurish at best.

Super  Time owned: more than 12 months
What a bunch of picky whiners... MultiPsk is one of the best free multimode digital software packages available. Get over the way it looks and USE IT. It works great and is one of my main go to programs. Thanks so much to Patrick for all his work and making the software available to all for free.....

What a disaster!   Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The user interface is a mess! Sorry, not worth wading through when other available programs will provide the same functionality...

Bleeding eyes  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I cannot really comment on how well the program itself works as the interface is the worst EVER! It is so busy that it will make your eyes bleed. To make matters worse, in many places the text does not fit in the buttons. And it is not freeware - not that that would be any excuse.

Perfect for JT65  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Works great. I use multipsk for JT65 as it prints the weakest signals . A small learning curve, but I give it a Strong 5.

Works great.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Maybe not the prettiest but works great and even very weak signals are copied without a problem..

Chapeau Patrick!

Not pretty, but . . .  Time owned: more than 12 months
You want pretty, look elsewhere. You want the "Swiss Army Knife" of digital mode software, you're in the right place. Does it all and does it well. Only other software I routinely use is JT65-HF cause I like JT Alert and the interface with DXKeeper. But MultiPSK is still my go-to program for the other modes, especially the more esoteric and infrequently used ones. I'm glad the developer continues to spend his time writing good, tight code rather than wasting time on a "cool" user interface.

well done code - UGLY user interface  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Tried MultiPSK because it was referenced in a forum.

Software has definitely the most and maybe the best implementation of all modes we use on Ham bands.

Rating 2 means 'Needs help'. Maybe one of the french speaking Hams can help Patrick to come up with a
user interface that does not drive my mother in law out of the shack.

Unbelievable - fonts bigger than buttons, buttons misaligned, captions ins buttons sometimes centered,
sometimes left or right adjusted.
Setup screen is like 'hell' - takes one minutes to find what you are looking for.

Why is this guy doing this - and writing perfect code at the same time?

Ugly but Great  Time owned: more than 12 months
Reg. user...have been using for 5 or 6 years I guess, maybe longer. It is ugly but works great and has almost any mode you could ever want. Patrick is always adding new modes/features.
Someone down the list said Packet was only USB/LSB,,,Not sure what he was talking about,,I use
it all the time on VHF/FM and it will also work as
a "KISS" TNC, so can be used with RMS Express and other programs that need a KISS TNC.

My 3 cents---
