The App Store version and the downloadable versions seem to be quite out of sync at the moment with the app store landing in at 5.3.1 and the downloadable being 5.5.

Can't I do the same thing with Reminders in conjunction with my financial software? $10 gets me what, again?

Sure, if you have few bills and a simple financial structure that would work fine. What you're missing though is those of us who own various properties, run businesses, are bookkeepers for more than one company, etc, and have hundreds of bills to track. I was going crazy with varied financial software platforms, spread sheets, calendar reminders, etc, to track it all. Chronicle saved my sanity!! For me, $10 in exchange for peace of mind was a bargain!! For you, perhaps not, but don't dis a product without thinking how it might serve others in a different situation. I'm jus sayin : /

Please note: There are TWO versions of Chronicle available, and they aren't exactly the same. There is the downloadable version from the developer's web site, and the App Store version, which includes the ability to sync across devices via iCloud.

I made the mistake of overwriting my App Store version with the latest downloadable release and wiped out my entire bill data (reminders, history, etc.).

If you need the ability to sync via iCloud, do NOT download the version available here!

Thanks for the heads-up, Mhoutman! However, you'll notice that there's a note in the version changes ("What's New") which states that v.5.2.1 is the version available for *purchase*, not the version available for download.

Is the App Store the only way to get version 5.2.0? I have a licensed copy of the non-App Store version, and no matter whether I download via the link on this page or via MacUpdate Desktop, the zip file contains version 5.1.0. (To add insult to injury, the file that MUD downloads says it's 5.2.0, even though when you unzip it, it's still just 5.1.0.) If I have the app itself check for updates, it says 5.1.0 is the most current version.

If you can get 5.2.0 only from the App Store, and you can't transfer a license from the non-App Store version to the App Store version, this page needs to make that explicitly clear. And shame on the developer for not providing an upgrade path for those of us who prefer to buy our apps directly from developers instead of from the App Store.

Based on the reply from the developer, that is correct. The latest version of the non-Mac AppStore version is 5.1.0.

They don't provide the way to transfer the license. In another word, you can't get the feature like iCloud sync from non-Mac AppStore version.

Hi, Quantumpanda. Regarding the comments about the version of the file downloaded by MacUpdate Desktop, we have tried to make that clear in the note at the beginning of What's New, which says that the demo is v.5.1.0 and the version available for purchase is 5.2.0. We're sorry if that wasn't clear to you.

As for your comment about the listing having failed to indicate that there is no transfer of license from non-MAS to MAS, again we apologize. AFAIK, the MAS doesn't allow transfer of license nor does it recognize ownership of a free-market license for the purpose of upgrade.

We try to provide you as much information as possible, but there is only so much that can be put on a listing page, and the link to the developers' sites are on the link bar for a reason. We're sorry you think that we're failing you.

Thanks for the response, Jess. But I think you're missing my point.

There's a *big* difference between saying, "The version for purchase is 5.2.0," and "You have to repurchase the app to get 5.2.0 if you didn't buy it from the App Store." Under normal circumstances, already having a license for an app eliminates concerns of "demo" vs. "purchase" for what to all appearances is an incremental update. I already have a full license for Chronicle, so when I see an incremental update, my expectation is that my existing license is sufficient.

I'm not blaming MU for the App Store's policies—as I understand it, this happened specifically because Apple is requiring Apps with iCloud features to be available only in the App Store. All the more reason for developers to seriously question the value of using the App Store.

But that's not MU's fault, and I apologize if it sounded like I was blaming MU for the problem. My issue with MU on this is solely the fact that the listing is unclear about the fact that a non-App Store license for 5.1.0 does not allow a user to get or run 5.2.0. Well, that and the fact that MacUpdate Desktop claims to be downloading the updated version when it's really not—which is basically a ramification of the unclear listing.

As for the link to the developer's site, even that site did not, at least as of the date I posted my first comment, make it clear that there was no upgrade path from 5.1.0 to 5.2.0 if your license didn't come from the App Store. So even though I normally verify information by checking the developer's site before posting comments here, that wasn't much help in this case.

The root cause of this problem is Apple's App Store license policies, which either by design or from ignorance eschew compatibility with established shareware licensing and upgrade pricing models. This leads to this kind of frustration when an app transitions from open distribution to the App Store and leaves existing users in the lurch.

Except for MAS-only features I see no reason a developer couldn't give existing non-MAS users the same other features in a separate update.

Or split the update scheme into two apps, synced on everything except MAS-only features. It's still in the hand of the developer.

I bought this application two months ago via the developer website. Now they release the version 5.2.0 with iCould support. However, you won't be able to get this feature if you don't buy from Mac AppStore.

The Mac AppStore version is currently sell for $9.99. I love the iCould sync feature and I've been waiting for it. Even though I love this application, paying another $9.99 for this feature doesn't make sense to me. I wouldn't buy this application from the developer website if I would know about this. Really disappointed.

I have been using this app for approximately 1 month and I absolutely love it. The program does exactly what it says it will do and I highly recommend it to anyone that loses track of the timing on their bill paying. Keeps me right on schedule. If this program keeps working right I will be using it for a long long time!
