The ad supported model is really not working. Ads typically generate in the region of $1 a day for almost 50,000 users which given the amount of support that the free users request, makes it unsustainable (especially when most issues are due to ignoring the instructions).
I’m sorry to announce that an update in the near future will change the app from “Free” to “Trial” and will require a license to unlock the full app.
You will have the option to not update and continue using the free version (without support) or to buy a license key but in the interests of fairness, I will give warning in the change log when this occurs.
No doubt this will generate lots of 1 star reviews from the short sighted ones amongst you (There is one already and it has not even changed yet) but would you work for nothing?
It is interesting to see that people who previously used the app yet never bothered to review or comment suddenly find a voice when it comes to complaining. It is probably the same people who use ad blockers and expect to freeload the apps they use.
If it is worth using, surely it is worth paying for. Currently only around 1% of users actually buy a license which is not a huge incentive to continue development.
Sorry if my tone seems harsh. I’m disappointed at the moment because of the something for nothing attitude I keep being presented with.
