$40 per year or $5 per month? That's a lot of money and I am not seeing that value in the added premium features. I think they've priced this subscription way too high.

I don't have an issue with a subscription that is well priced. I only use fantastical on my phone. $40/year is a price I won't pay for my limited use. If it had been $10/year I might have considered it.

Flexbits problem is that they removed version 2 from the store. There is no need for that. 1Password, Textexpander, and some others that escape me at the moment went to subscriptions but had the honesty to leave the version people had paid for in the App Store. They warned that it wouldn't be supported forever but who cared. At least they weren't giving the appearance of trying to nickle and dime their users.

Their sub is 2x the price of Drafts. that in itself makes them look ridiculous.

Yeah.

Yes v2 users get to keep our features in v3, but we also are getting the equivalent of nagware now.

I was coming here to rant about this. So disappointed by this “upgrade” and the subscription model. I only use Fantasical 2 on my iPhone and I don’t see the value in the subscription. I would’ve much rather preferred to flat out buy 3.0 for another $5 or $10 instead of this. Plus, adding a company with address is a “premium” feature when it was available in 2.0. I used that feature all the time because CarPlay would automatically pull up the address and it was a simple click for directions. Hopefully they correct this.

Good their reviews are being filled with 1 star people complaining! Hope it stays that way.
