Great, but no go on the subscription.

An amazing app, but like most apps, this has a subscription model. Please offer a "One-off" purchase as you have on your site. Not sure why it wasn't offered from the get go. Thanks!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback!
We're considering adding a single "Lifetime" in-app purchase on the Mac App Store. In the meantime, a good alternative is indeed to get a single purchase option from our website.
All the best, 
The TripMode team
