  • Subscription approach is ridiculous.

    10 dollars a month to use an app. Seriously? It used to be free to use and pay for add ons. I understand the need to earn money but who in their right mind thinks it makes sense to spend 120 dollars a year to use this app? You can pay a one time payment less than that for full access to professional apps, games, software, etc. out there of equal or better production value. No offense to the developers but, making a point. This should be a one time payment offering that includes a sampling of different games and development access. Then added costs for downloadable content. Subscriptions of this type are just a way to take advantage of consumers and milk them for money whether they use the app or not.
