I guess you all had to try. This will never go over well. While it may change in the future, users still seem to continue to indicate that they do not want subscriptions but rather want well developed, well priced apps that they can pay for once and use until they may or may not decide to upgrade at some point in the future.

And on top of all that, five of the apps are listed as coming soon on your Web site.

Why do you fall so deep into the bucket of forgetting and the basement of meaninglessness ... Are there really users who pay for programs they could get free of charge?

App renting is a non-starter. Most of these apps barely fly as freeware. If this is the future of Mac software, here I come Linux.

OSX=BSD=Unix=Linux - If i'm not mistaken. But I do agree with your first and second sentences. =)

I'm really disappointed MU would have this a promotional item. First, no software subscriptions for me. Second, these are minor apps you can usually get for free. Why would anyone pay let alone pay every month?

Nope - definitely not for me. Hate the way Adobe operate now and my experience with the one app I did own from this developer was that it was pretty rubbish to be honest. Nice try though!

My vote is, and always will be, to own apps rather than to rent them. Sometimes a particular app upgrade just doesn't have features that interest you. MacAppStudio just seems to want to try to go the route that brings in continuous revenue for all their apps, and there are a bunch that I have zero interest in, instead of just buying the ones you want with free updates, or with free point release updates, for the app.

While I agree that I have little interest in renting an application, I will also say I have bought a ton of apps that seem to fail and never get upgraded at the next OS release, so not very good there either.

Renting is also handy for that time you really need a feature. Shouldn't all software developers really be pushing to the professional that knows all of the features vs the person that paid $5 to get one document edited. Sure they may forget to cancel the subscription so you can get a recurring fee for nothing, but is that really where we are headed?
