Amazing App and Community

I picked up Hype when it first came out to try it against an alternative (The now defunct Edge Animate) for a project I was working on. I spent about a week on the ins and outs of both and found Hype way easier to utilize. Since then I've upgraded every time they've launched a major release because the feature set and capabilities continue to grow. I joined the beta program for Hype 4.0 and found the addition of Vectors to be a game changer. I can't wait to see what this small but mighty production team comes up with next.

The community presence behind it is amazing too. I started as a novice and through the collective wisdom of the Hype community have come to learn a ton of techniques that have enhanced the things I've created in this software. Can't wait to beta test 4.5 and every release thereafter :-)

Is it free? No

People deserve money for their work. But if a product says "Free" on the download button, it should be free. I don't know if this is an Apple thing or what, but I'm tired of downloading programs that say they're free only to learn it's only the trial period.


I realized I was being unfair - the whole Free/Paid thing is more of an Apple UX problem. Anyway, this is a very cool program - the learning curve is probably a little steep for people looking to play around with HTML animations. (But that's what the 14 day free trial is for, right?)

Developer Response ,

Hi! We distribute the app as "Free" on the store so that you have the option for a Free Trial -- otherwise it would have to be an upfront blind purchase for $50-$100.

Apple probably could make it a little clearer, but it does say "In-App Purchases" next to the GET button. We also did our best to put in the description that we offer a trial along with the Hype Standard and Hype Professional purchases. Further, the app has a free viewer mode if you simply need to see someone else's Hype documents, so there is functionality even without payment.

We admit this strategy goes a little against the grain of the App Store. Aside from some potential confusion, we think it ultimately gives users the best options. Our goal is to be as clear and up-front as possible.

I hope that you will re-review based on this information, and take a look at the application itself.

Attempts to trick users into buying subscription

The initial window attempts to trick the user into clicking the "Free" option which is not actually free, it still attempts to subscribe you to their service through app store. That is not a real free trial. If you want to actually try this product for free without getting scammed, you need to go through 2 diffferent windows making sure to not click the wrong button. And for that, I give 1 star. All the developers had to do was make this app friendly to first time trial users. I have no interest supporting developers that do this

Developer Response ,

I'd like to clarify a few items here, as our goal is to be upfront as possible and not trick anyone!
First, the trial is 100% free and fully functional for 14 days. As the text on the unlock screen indicates, you *will not* be charged at the end of it. The trial does use the In-App Purchase mechanism (which has additional app store dialogs) but the product is marked as free; this is to allow users to start the trial when they are ready instead of immediately on first download. When the trial expires, the app will revert to a free viewer-only mode so you can still view your creations.
Next, Hype is *not* subscription software. There are two products available for purchase as perpetual licenses: Hype 4 Standard and Hype 4 Professional. After purchase they will never expire/end, and you do not need to purchase again. Instead we opt for a more "old school" major version upgrade scheme. For instance, we offer upgrade discounts to any users of Hype 1-3.
Previous App Store versions of Hype required upfront purchase and we could not offer discounts to previous purchasers. The v4 flow we believe is much better for users - a free trial, a free viewer mode when that expires, and upgrade discounts. It is a little more complicated/confusing on the unlock screen but this is an artifact on going against the app store grain to try to give you the most fair experience.
If there is anything that ever feels disingenuous or tricky, please email us ( and let us know. Our goal is to be as clear and establish trustworthy relationships with our users. We'll do better in business with a good reputation than a bad one (it is sad so many businesses seemingly do not get this).
I hope that you will re-review based on this information, and take a look at the application itself.
