They upgraded their app to an annual subscription and those of us that purchased it prior to that lost access to the product we paid for and they don’t have the decency to respond to the complaint I made.
I purchased this app this year, and now I can’t use it because it’s a subscription service that they want me to pay an additional $14.99 a year for. Rip off!
Purchased Elk Nut from the App Store to get ready for 2022 elk season. Great information I was starting to process. Had it for about a month and they shut down the app to restructure. Haven’t been able to use since. Don’t answered my emails.
Paul you came through!!!!… you made the app even better. Thanks for listening to the community and making the old still available. You’ve now created a way to entice those that Matt have not wanted a subscription with new bells and whistles!
Please get your act together on this new app. It was beautiful and worked perfectly before. Now it is unusable. Videos won’t play, wrong content shows through. Paul is a great guy! Developers, please get you act together. I will be canceling my subscription until you can get your act together and get a app that works. Thanks.
Bought for $10.00 and downloaded a few weeks ago for this archery elk season (September 2022). I go to use it at camp on a hunt and I discover it's changed to a subscription model and won't work without signing up. Ok... The app gives me an option to get a free year of the subscription, since I already recently bought it. Great! Except you have to fill out a form and email them, and they are supposed to get back to you. Ok... Did it... WEEKS AGO! No reply since. Archery season came and went. Still no reply. That's absolutely terrible timing on your part, changing to a subscription model right in the middle of the season. So it didn't come in handy for the season. I still can't use it. And IF I ever do get that free year, it will have expired by next season anyway. Paul's videos online are second-to-none. But changing the app payment structure during the season and not getting back to people who just bought it? Really disappointed.
I agree with everyone else writing 1 star reviews. Every other app I’ve ever purchased, I still have access to. When I purchased this one for $9.99 it didn’t say anything about expiring or subscription. I go to use it for the second time and they want me to pay annually now… I understand the business standpoint… however, you have to understand the frustration with your customers and the lack of transparency.
I bought this app a few weeks told it was a one time 9.99 purchase. Great value I thought and the content was good. But just a few weeks later and I can’t access the app as now it’s a subscription. I have sent a claim for the free year with no response. If a man is not good on his word what is he good for. I guess I bit the bullet and kiss my ten bucks good bye, payment for a few things I learned off Paul’s videos. But I’m done with the ElkNut.
I wrote a review last week and my review somehow got removed. Either way I find this app terrible. Complete bait and switch. I purchased this app 3 years ago and had full access. Now it is no longer available. The fact that this was done during elk season also goes to show the ethics of the company. It would have been in the company’s best interest to provide an elk nut and elk nut pro. I would’ve been interested in purchasing the pro version if elk nut hadn’t taken away what was already purchased. Poor business practice.
Sold the app for one price to access the content and then blocked access to it and demanded more money. Bad business.
