This is not a software purchase as much as a subscription. Next year there will be a hefty 'renewal' if you want updates. After five months, updates were ceased on my version 11 I bought last year. I will not support this monetization scheme again.

I used to use this app - then I realize they bring more & more obstacles (glitches & damaging older galleries, etc).. Plus pricing model & price itself. They changed (simply enabled on the rebound) showing the advert - and suddenly I didn't feel comfortable and can't comply with such practices... I found much better substitution. Not sure if current version uses still crappy JAVA, but I am quite happy I don't have to use this SW nor pay ransom $$ anymore.

Hi Sperling, We are sorry to hear this. Sounds to me like a misunderstanding or that something hasn't worked exactly like it should. We would be very happy to try and solve this with you if you give us the chance. Send an email to support@jalbum.net and we'll do what we can to get things working the way you want.
Have a nice weekend!

This is a very nice app. It really works great. That being said I am getting rid of it. This developer releases paid updates too often for the type of software it is. There are so many options in this area that are much cheaper. Unless you need all the power this software has it is too expensive.

Hi @BuffaloJohn,
Thanks for your review and we absolutely respect your point of view.
We just released version 13 of jAlbum, after more than 13 years of development. When you purchase a license you get 1 year of free upgrades/updates and free support. After that you can keep using the license for as long as you like but without new updates. When/if you feel a new version is worth upgrading to, you can go ahead, otherwise just keep using the previous version. We at least think this is a fair model.
We also offer a 1 year storage and license subscription where you always have the latest version, support and storage for you albums if you don't have your own site.

Hi Jason,
You miss my point. Considering you charge 100 to for a pro license to start with a year is a very short time. I have 1 commercial website. $50 is a lot of money a year to stay with the latest. If I took care of several websites it might make sense.

At this time I will agree to disagree. You think it is a fair model and I don't. Your product is very good. I wish you the best.

Hi Jason,

I went to install version 12 (my paid version). I had installed 13 so Java is already installed. The app is instructing me to install an older version of Java.

I may be wrong but doesn't that create a security risk? I read someplace that is important to keep Java up to date because hackers can gain access to your computer.

I would really like to run this but don't want to if it is a security risk. Can you please explain the additional risk (if any exists). Thank you.

This is one of those apps that you don't realise how useful it is until you start using it. I use it on my own website rather than on the galleries provided by jAlbum and the galleries I create look like an integral part of the overall site design so the effect is that the site is larger and more consistently designed than perhaps it is. If you then orphan the individual galleries on your site you can build up a series of galleries than can be viewed only by the people you select by disclosing the links to. Naturally this is not high level security as the images are discoverable but it's enough for most uses. Adding new images to existing galleries is also particularly easy. The only sticking point seems to be price: both the previous two comments are about it being too expensive and I agree, the software is on the pricey side and the regular upgrades don't always make the leaps in progress that would validate their cost. However, the Pro and Standard versions are currently on offer with MacUpdate so this might be a good time to buy.

@Machound - great to hear that you're satisfied with the product.
We put a lot of time in the development of jAlbum and come out with new updates about once a month and a new major release about once per year. We have listened to user feedback and now instead of purchasing a license tied to a specific version, we include 1 year worth of free updates/upgrades and support. This way no matter when you purchase or how many updates we come out with, you always get one full year of guaranteed updates. (Note: a jAlbum license never expires, so this is not a subscription model)
So when we eventually release jAlbum 13, everyone who purchased a license within a year will be able to upgrade to version 13 for free.
Hope this sounds fair.

Yes it does sound fair and actually I have since done some more research into your pricing and your company strategy and I have to admit that the costs are appropriate for the various levels - particularly the Standard and Pro licences. Keep up the good work!

I have a version 11 Pro that I have paid $89.00. To upgrade to the next version 12 Pro I need to pay $71.20! That is only 20% off the original Pro price. Sorry, that is not fair nor inviting. I will not be upgrading this app any more.

Hi, You can use version 11 for as long as you like, it won't expire.
If you've purchased a version 11 license we give you a 50% upgrade discount to version 12.
However, we also offer version 10 users a 20% discount as we actually upgraded everyone with a version 10 license to version 11 for free.
Please let us know (email to support@jalbum.net) when you purchased your version 11 license and we'll have a look why our system doesn't give you the 50% discount.
Thanks!

Hi @Steve,
We offer both licenses and account plans (yearly subscriptions).
The licenses never expire and include updates for the current major version. We have been around since 2002 and are now up to version 12. So we release a new major version about once a year.
Even when a new major version is released you can keep using your current version and only upgrade to the new major version when and if you feel it provides enough value to motivate the upgrade.
Hope you feel this is a fair model (we also offer generous discounts to everyone who purchased a license for a previous major version).
