Based on several recent threads, it appears there is a huge aversion to paying subscriptions versus having a standalone app to purchase. I personally don't care for subscriptions either, but there are a few that I pay: Dropbox NordVPN 1 Password But the sentiment appears to be that apps moving to subscriptions is rampant and unchecked (and forced on users). I don't notice it being that extreme, but I am interested in what others have to say about it, and alternatives. So here is the challenge: List apps (macOS or iOS) that have moved or are moving to subscription based pricing Then list an alternative app(s) to replace the subscription based app Free apps preferably Standalone apps for purchase are welcome too For example, in this thread 1Password's subscription based pricing takes a beating and several alternatives are listed such as: LastPass BitWarden Another example would be the thread about AirMail found here I'm interested in hearing all the apps that people are unhappy about that are moving to subscriptions and what their choices for alternatives are. GO!
