As many of you may know, Writers App is available for a reduced price since last week. In concrete, that means that Writers App BASIC is currently available for free while Writers App PRO costs only 0,99$. Tomorrow, Writers App PRO will return to its original price of 1,99$. But not Writers App BASIC. Writers App BASIC will remain free.
It was no easy decision. I’ve thought for a long time about how to proceed with the pricing of Writers App BASIC, even when I’ve released version 2.0 in February this year. Should the app be totally free with a one-time in app purchase of 1,99$, or should I sell the BASIC version for 0,99$ and set the one-time in app purchase to 0,99$, too? As you know, I’ve decided to choose the second concept. But – however – I didn’t feel that this was the perfect solution.
So I’ve decided to try an “experiment” and reduced the prices of both Writers Apps for about one week, which also meant that Writers App BASIC was available for free. I wanted to see how many users are interested in such an app if there was no need to pay anything for it (even if the app costs only 0,99$). And in fact, I could see that there is a huge interest in Writers App.
Because the BASIC version doesn’t offer all the great functions and possibilities you can use with Writers App PRO, I’ve now finally decided to set the price for Writers App BASIC to free. That allows all passionate writers and authors out there to try and test Writers App and use the basic functionality without the need to pay even 0,99$. On the other side, the one-time in app purchase to upgrade to PRO will rise to 1,99$.
I think that this is a great way to share this product with all of you and to keep the project growing. Writers App is available on the App Store for over four years now and I want to see this app on the store for the next four years, too. 🙂
I hope you like and understand the new pricing. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
