I'm really interested in buying this software, but without a demo? No way! It's a shame that developers put their software in the MacAppStore whitout offering a possibility to test the software. In the time before the MacAppStore, no developer could afford to sell their software without a demo to test it thoroughly. Thank you Apple for offering this customer-unfriendly behaviour.

Hi! i've been playing around with the trial version of Hype 3 for the last couple of days and love it. Then I found out about this bundle. My question is: If I buy Hype 3 as part of this bundle, will I still qualify to buy the upgrade to the Pro features though the in-app purchase? Or will I have to stay on the standard version? Please let me know. I'm really looking forward to upgrade! :) Thanks in advance.

I just bought the bundle. It includes a coupon for 30% off Hype Pro.
07 July 2015
Mondele, is the 30% discount off the full price of Hype Pro ($99) or the upgrade price ($49)? Put another way, are you being offered the upgrade for $69.30 or $34.30?
07 July 2015
I have not yet received the coupon, so I'm not sure. My receipt says
"Looking for Hype Pro? Your purchase of Hype today qualifies you for a 30% discount. Look for a coupon in your email in the coming days!"

I will update this if I get it before the expiration of the deal.

Hi Mondele,
I bought the bundle that day too and got the same message in my receipt, but no coupon yet. I suppose it takes a few days? I've checked my spam folder too.

I heard from the Hype developers. This coupon is for the upgrade version. See https://twitter.com/hypeapp/status/621757363725434880

Just upgraded to 2.5 and this app goes from strength to strength. There are few things you can't do with this now as it exports to video as well - I'll be doing all my demo videos in here now as well! Currently using it for my own app's website and it's solid, fast and reliable.

Here we go again: As soon as I start Hype, it attempts to phone home to GOOGLE ANALYTICS ! ! ! NOT acceptable. NOT appreciated. ASK MY PERMISSION FIRST DAMMIT. NO, I do NOT give you permission surveil me. BLOCKED by Little Snitch. Hype that, idiots. Gotta HATE the FORCED user surveillance that stupid developers foist onto their users just to make an extra buck at their expense. Consider this comment my retribution. USERS BEWARE.

On first launch we load a webpage displaying Getting Started with Hype information, as this is going to be helpful to many users. This page is loaded from our servers, as we may want to change it from time to time. Like every page on our site, it does include an analytics link. By default, this only shows the one single time, and we do not send any other information back to our servers unless you've very explicitly opted-in to "Collect anonymous usage data to improve Hype." I'm a user like anyone else and would want my privacy respected. Please see our privacy policy: http://tumult.com/hype/privacy/

Pricing is going to have to change before I even consider buying it and by “change” is what I might pay for it but I sure won’t shell out 30 bucks for it.
