They just took a decent-sounding, simple to use drum backing app (that I already paid for) and made it unusable unless I now pay an additional $100.00 to unlock the new “VIP” features. That’s twice to cost of a full featured, top-of-the-line DAW app for a glorified metronome! How in the world are they justifying that price? Sorry guys, you just priced yourself out of business in my opinion. There are TONs of far superior drum apps out there for a fraction of the price. This WAS a cool app at less than $10.00, but there is no valid reason for it to be the most expensive music production app on the market.
UPDATE - as the developer has kindly responded. I will push up to a 3 star. I might have been a little harsh. I still just do not like the idea of subscription models for apps or software. I understand the necessity in some cases, but I would be much happier to see in app content purchases. Especially in music apps. Then we could pay once for blocks of content. I purchase loops and patches and pro feature upgrades regularly in other apps. I probably don’t want to know how much I have spent on them, but I like that they are mine once purchased. I would likely pay for upgraded features and content in this app as well. But I only want to pay once to unlock each feature or set of loops. It’s fair for developers to be paid for their ongoing efforts, but IMO subscriptions are not the way to do it.
