Thank you for developing Agenda! I’ll be honest, I downloaded the app to try it first, then deleted it. Re-installed it, deleted it. I think I did this several times. It took me a while to wrap my head around on what makes Agenda different and how it actually makes meeting notes organization better. So far, I’m really liking the tool. It still doesn’t have all the features I need, but I see that it’s in the roadmap.
I really like your payment scheme. I get turned-off when I see several journaling and note-taking apps have subscription models. Some of them even have weekly subscription models. Why?? Why would I need to pay for an app on a weekly basis? It’s not like they provide updates on a weekly basis. I also hate subscription models where you lose all premium features once the subscription ends.
On the flip-side, the only thing on my mind is the timing of the payment to unlock the premium features. Let’s assume that I’m perfectly happy with the current features and may only need the premium features down the road. I pay for the premium features unlock on 1 Dec 2018, then it “expires” on 30 Nov 2019. On 15 Dec 2019, you release a new premium feature that I would really like to have. It would just be a bummer that if I waited just 15 days, I could have had that feature as part of my previous subscription already. Haha! That would be a win for you because I am now being encouraged to renew my subscription. As oppossed to having delayed my subscription for about 15 days, then I would have gotten that feature for “free”. That would be a win for me! Yay!
I’m just teasing…
I like paying for apps because I know there is quality behind it, but I don’t want to purchase apps just to try it first. There are many developers there that would make you pay for their app first, only for you to realize it’s bad.
You providing us with this wonderful tool for free, and invite us to pay for more features, if we need it, is really a great idea! Plus, we keep what we pay for, and we get to support your development efforts so that this app is kept alive for many years to come. I just hate buying an app that a developer suddenly abandons, then you’re stuck with an old app, and have to find a new one.
I’ll be getting premium for my iPad, not really for the premium features, but to support you so that you continue improving the app and keeping it alive. But! I’d like my yearly subscriptions to start at the beginning of the year, which is around the corner. Or, maybe I should get it for my birthday, which is on the first week of December. Haha!
Thank you! More power to you!
