What about those who paid for the app??

I use this app every single day. This app used to be a lot less glitchy and buggy so I’m not exactly sure what happened. Maybe making the app free and charging for monthly for premium is a way to fund the changes and improvements that this app needs, but idk. I’m wondering as someone who paid for the original app and helped support it in its hayday; do I still have to pay for premium perks? Doesn’t seem very just to make me have to pay for the same perks that are now free for everyone else. One of the reasons that I bought your app was because I don’t like monthly premiums for my apps. But if my original invest was essentially a waste and I’m forced to pay for all the app had to offer now then I may as well switch to all of the other premium based apps for my podcast listening. Thanks for your time.

Wow! Totally disappointed!

They really pulled the rug out from under their early adopters... You pay a one time $4 + $10 to get mobile and desktop apps expecting, you know, a one time payment. NOPE! Surprise! They’re going to join the fray and go subscription like everyone else and throw 3 years of premium at people who thought they’d get several years +++ of value. Very shady.

Dissapointed with subscription model

I paid money for BOTH Android and iOS versions of your app, only to find that you made it free and are making new features subscription only. Either grandfather us in or offer us refunds, it’s only fair.

Switched from Downcast to this

Recently switched from Downcast after 7 years of using it. Really good podcast app. A few quirks like not being able to add files through iTunes. But i love the advanced tweaking features per podcast and the cross platform syncing.

Yet another company wanting to add more recurring costs

I paid for the app and enjoyed it for what it was. It synced decently, but not perfectly, and the cost was worth the price of entry. Unfortunately, this is another company that wants to tack on another recurring cost to everyone’s bills and I can no longer recommend them as a result. Hopefully they change their stance on this pricing model, but if they don’t... hopefully a new competitor will crop up to replace them on my devices.

Living up to their name

Shifty; Having the appearance of being dishonest, criminal, or unreliable. Guess NPR couldn’t resist.

为啥pc付费能终身会员 ios买断式付费用户变成免费用户 吃相太难看

Dear Scrooge McDuck,

I paid for this, all your loyal users did until now. How did you not consider granting your supporters some of your new features now locked behind an endless paywall? Sure, go free and give away all we paid for for free to new users, but how about the people who funded y’all until now?... Who’s running this company, Scrooge McDuck?

Changing to monthly is a great way to bring in more cash

I initially bought this app because it’s in her face was simple and allow me to easily listen to podcast. But a couple updates ago the playback would sometimes not start if I was not connected to the Internet and had Cellular data turned off. I was hoping an update would fix this and that never came. I guess his new direction is why. Too bad they didn’t give their previous supporters something more than free users are getting.

I paid for this already

And now you want to put features behind a subscription paywall? You should have grandfathered all paid users with free lifetime subscriptions. Your company is a joke.
