The MAS is not the problem here IMO, that argument is getting old. (I admit I used to be one of them) If you have intel machine but you cannot accept using MAS, then just move on, look for non-MAS apps instead.

The real problem here IMO, is that you have to ALSO install the iOS version on your devices, and that costs money. Well as of today (Jan 23, 2013), their iOS app costs $3.99 US dollar, and I bet people who download the Mac version first never aware of it.

I think NOT INCLUDING the price of the iOS app in this page description is very misleading - users should not be trick into thinking the whole thing is free like Dropbox.

I agree, free is one thing, useful is another, this application doesn't do anything by itself so it's NOT free. The only reason it is labelled free, as far as I can see, is to trick people into downloading it. That is a red flag as far as I'm concerned, I'm putting Delite Studio on the shonky-developers list.

I agree. Not to list the commercial ancillary software requirement even in the shortest of app descriptions doesn't inspire confidence.

I do not want to be argumentative, but I read in the description:

"File Storage Companion requires File Storage [...] OR File Transfer [...] to be installed on your device."

It seems to me that it says everything we need.

BTW, I tried the app, and it works beautifully.

GLarry - That still doesn't say there's a cost involved does it?

A person who can't figure out ancillary product pricing seems likely to also overlook any mention of it on sites like this. It typically takes less effort to determine if an iOS app is free or not, before downloading/purchasing, than to write this reply. :)

Why is this app still posted as FREE? Isn't there a way to change to commercial?

Changes can be submitted via the "Add/Update App" link (http://www.macupdate.com/developers/update/) at the bottom of each page.

so finally there seems to be a decent app that does what apple should have given us with the OS -- and it's only available through the app store. that's just a tad ironic, and incredibly annoying. seriously, devs, do NOT get sucked in by apple's landgrab; in the long run this is a terrible idea both for you and users. please make your app available through other distribution channels.

Why the hell is there no direct download? I DON'T WANT to use the App Store, damnit.

The App Store is the way things are going my friend, get used to it. Developers like its copy protection.

What's not to like?!? I don't understand this mentality. The apps are all in one place, easy to search, easy and safe to purchase, with ratings and reviews, guaranteed safe to open and use, and it lets you know when there is an update. I love it. I find more software this way, through features and promotions. It's good for developers, and it's good for customers. What's the problem?
