New Trial Model

Written by sven. Posted in features

Start­ing with uPod 2 — which is about to come soon — uPod’s tri­al mod­el will change: You will then be able to check out all the great fea­tures with­out any restric­tions for sev­en days. After­wards you will need to pur­chase the license to con­tin­ue using uPod. Already have a license? Great, then noth­ing will change for you!

Dis­miss­ing the free usage mod­el wasn’t an easy deci­sion. But unfor­tu­nate­ly the cur­rent »freemi­um« mod­el, which looked like a great idea in the begin­ning, turned out to be a bad one. For a serv­er backed app like uPod each addi­tion­al user caus­es addi­tion­al serv­er costs and the bad thing is, that these costs occur on a month­ly basis. So I rely on the license pay­ments to get the servers paid which isn’t pos­si­ble with the cur­rent ratio of non-pay­ing users.

Thanks for your under­stand­ing, loy­al­ty and sup­port!
