Data Glitch is available for a very reasonable price. It costs $49 for a Single User License and $245 for a Site License.

Data Glitch is available right now via download and is distributed through Aescripts. If you want to try Data Glitch before you want to buy, you can download the trial version, which is fully functional but renders a watermark.
