Free/Pro to In App Purchase
I’m looking into switching Auto Respond from free/pro to free with In app purchases.
For those of you who have already purchased pro, don’t worry, I will make sure that there is a seamless way for you to get all of the features without paying again. I am also going to try to create a way for you to bring over all of your current settings, so that you don’t have to reconfigure the entire app.
This change will not increase or change the price of the app, it will not force you to pay per feature, it will not cost you anything extra in any way.
This is not a way to get extra money out of people, it is simply a way to make the app easier to manage. Currently I am managing two completely different app projects, which produce two different APK files, much of which is the same exact code. This change will allow me to manage one single project, with one code base, and not have to make common changes in two different projects. Having separate projects has caused issues with features occasionally being left out of one version (usually the free version) for a period of time, or introducing a bug into once version and not the other, which makes troubleshooting even more difficult.
I have a few ideas about how to implement this change, and I will include very specific instructions as to how to make the transition when it happens.
