NYCish.
PDF Expert is great, however, on iOS they moved features previously available on the purchased full version to only available via subscription. I have - and use - the current MacOS and iOS versions of the software, but I'm actively looking for a replacement. I have Adobe Acrobat Pro as well and actually prefer PDF Expert, but I won't subscribe to software that I paid for to regain features that were taken away. (I would happily buy a new version, but that is not an option. Yes, I want to support developers, but not every app has to be SaaS.)

I recently gave MoneyWiz3 for Mac a try. I wanted to like it but ended up cancelling after the trial period. I don't need a budget manager and I don't have more accounts than I can manage individually. It really just created an unnecessary layer that impeded my workflow.

Keen to try Aura for this reduced price, but not showing up for me - it's saying it's $59.99, or £51.99....

Has anyone used Mondly?
I am also curious to know, have you tried it yet? I am hearing mixed reviews about Mondly, either it fits within your learning style or not. I am tempted but would like more personal feedback on others experiences with usage.

I did get it and only have used it once so far, it seems to like Rosetta Stone in style.

Did you get the 5 languages (lifetime) or all 33 languages (lifetime). I played around with the free iOS version and I like it, my biggest challenge with learning new languages is that I loose interest of its boring. So far it’s got my attention but I am curious for how long. I prefer not spending a lot if I am going to not use it after a few weeks and the language abilities make me limited in my interactions.

If you go to their website, they have a better deal. Access to everything for a one-time payment of $89.

I got the 33 since it was only $30 more.
