Good blocker but annoying

The blocker works great, but it needs a constant opening of a "buy subscription" page when there is an update. This is happening constantly (almost every day) and it is frustrating. I understand that it is hard to sell a product, but there are other ways to do that.
[EDIT]: I don't see updates so often as before. Also, I have received a personal message from the developer related to my comment, saying they will change things I wasn't happy about. I appreciate that very much. With this huge improvement, from now on, I will recommend this product to everyone!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for using Magic Lasso and for your feedback. You should only receive a notification to update at most once weekly. We have also heard your feedback on the subscription prompt and so have redesigned this panel as part of our upcoming v2.0 release to make it less intrusive.

Subscription is per device 👎🏻

I paid for the pro subscription on my Mac. I installed the iOs version on my phone and tried to restore purchases. After several attempts to restore purchases failed, I contacted the developer and was told that iPhone, iPad and Mac are all separate restrictions and that additional work was required to make them all seamless. $15 a year for a subscription that does not work on all my devices is TOO MUCH.

Developer Response ,

Please note that we introduced a Universal Pro subscription as part of our v2.2 release. This allows a single subscription to support Pro features on all iPhones, iPads and Macs that use the same Apple ID and works for both existing and new subscribers.

Clean As A Whistle…

After some back and forth with Magic Lasso's surprisingly responsive and patient tech support, I am up and running. My ignorance and neglect of enabling content blockers in the Mac and iOS preferences had kept the application from working.

So far, AdBlock is working beautifully. In addition to blocking ads, webpages seem to load more quickly and smoothly, with fewer annoying jerks as ad servers deposit their 'messages.'
