What happens at the end of 12 months? Does it cease to work? Or just no more updates? What? Why don't they explain it?

And then what we have here is yet another Windows developer porting an app that "cleans" or "optimises" or offer features that can be had for cheaper or free elsewhere.

Hi Shiny22,

When you purchase a MacReviver license, you get unlimited use of the product, unlimited updates and unlimited premium support.

Once the license expires after a year, users can either renew their license (typical with most software) at a discounted price or choose to discontinue and uninstall the software.

We have a dedicated team of Mac Development experts who have come together to create MacReviver and are constantly working to improve the features, benefits and value offered by MacReviver. That being said, we do encourage users to try other free alternatives.

We hope this helped address your concerns.

So what the post from the developers tells us is that you don't get unlimited anything, you get limited everything. It's limited by time. After 12 months pony up again (at what price?) to get more of the same, limited support, limited use of the product, limited updates.

Or stop using the app.

And no, renewing after a year is not typical with most software, in fact it's incredibly rare in the Mac world. But then, as Windows developers wandering into the Mac world, they'd hardly be aware of that.

Oddly, I read their webpage and know what? I can't find a single place where they encourage users to try other free alternatives.

Hello again,

Thanks for your comments.

The terms of purchase are clearly listed on the MacReviver purchase page below:

http://www.reviversoft.com/macreviver/product-purchase/

It is limited by time but we offer all our users the option to renew at very reasonable prices. However, your feedback is well noted and we will eventually offer better pricing and license terms as we continue to grow.

Regardless of this, MacReviver users can still download the latest updates and contact our support team for assistance. As I'm sure you've noticed on our site, we also offer free informative and community driven resources to help PC and Mac users.

We'd like to reiterate that Mac users are free to try MacReviver, see how they like it and switch to a different app or other free alternatives if they aren't happy with the product.

If you have any additional questions or feedback, please drop us a line at support@reviversoft.com

Have a great day.

I've looked at the developer's website and cannot find any information as to cost for the annual renewal.

I agree with Shiny22 that this method of payment is not common in the Mac world. Normally, when one purchases a product, minor releases for the same version are provided at no charge. Only when there is an upgrade to a new version is there then a charge, normally at a reduced price for the upgrade. Subscription utilities are rare in the Mac community with the exception of virus detection software.

With all the excellent utilities available for Mac, none the least of which is the excellent Cocktail, I would be disinclined to purchase MacReviver.

Hi Kenm22,

Thanks for your comments!

At this time, the cost of renewal is the same as the initial purchase price which is $29.99/yr. This includes updates, upgrades & premium support.

Per my previous comment, we do offer the option to renew at discounted prices and extend special offers on occasion.

Cocktail is definitely a great app for the Mac and we think users should check out MacReviver along with the other apps on offer to pick the one they like the most.

MacReviver is a constantly evolving product and we intend to act on the feedback we receive to make it more user friendly, feature rich and deliver more value over time.
