Is there a catch? Do they spam your inbox once you download something?

Lots of fine print ...

On PC in particular:

No updates, and if you update it will probably break the software.

They also wrap the installer with bloatware / junkware, that you have to opt out of, or remove later.

By law (I assume), they have to give you a way to opt-out. Many times they are sneaky about it and they hide it and people miss it. In those cases, yes it get's through and you would have to uninstall.

As for the software, no updates, no support but they do it in the hope you will like it enough to buy it. On each download page you will see a comments section where you can see what other people are saying about it. I always check before going any further.
