Any one else pick up Mental Case awhile back? I was looking through my updates, and Mental Case wants to update to Mental Case Lite, while the developer is now offering Mental Case for $7.99. Needless to say, I'm not happy about this. The original app was free, but we picked up their desktop app to sync with, and that was $19.99. I think that if they're going to charge for their desktop app, then the iphone app should be free, or at least be a free upgrade for the people who already had it, and had been using it.
:mad:

Does the lite Mental case take features away? If so thats quite the bummer, contact the dev, perhaps they can help you out (using that new promo thing apple set up)

can't you not update? That way, you still be able to maintain a full feature app. The developer is lousy. How can he do this when you guys have been loyal customers.

I can update, but only to the lite version. If i want the full version, I'll have to pay $7.99. I had been using this app to make flashcards to study for my college courses, but I guess I'm just going to find something else to use. If they are going to do this, then I don't even want to use their Lite app.

I feel the same way. I hope the dev fixes this situation ASAP. I feel cheated by taking part in the company's limited time offer of the iPhone app (which is now only a lite version) and the desktop version for $19.95. Plus, the dev assured me he was adding the features I found lacking. Of course he never mentioned he would be charging for them.

Might want to contact Apple, and tell them your story as well. I'm not for sure, but I don't think the developer should be able to do this.

I will likely contact the dev first before I contact Apple. It does smell of bait and switch tactics. I'm pretty disappointed because the desktop version is quite nice. I expected the company to be a bit classier than this.
