Purchase history from the app is not honored in the Mac version

I have already bought two of the dictionaries which provide content for this product running on the iOS platform as in-app purchases. However, that (identical) content is not available to me when I try to “Restore Purchases” on the Mac platform. Since I already have been coerced into buying the iOS product twice, after Duden decided to desupport their Duden-branded app which had been developed and marketed by Paragon, I’ll be d****d if I’ll buy it a third time! Good dictionary (of course), but sleazy marketing.

You have to buy separate version for MacOS and iOS

Although I paid US$ 29.00 for the MacOS version, I cannot use the license for the iOS version - you have to purchase that one separately (another US$ 19). Great product. Very poor marketing.

3rd time and you're out

The Duden Universal (just German, not a German-English) Dictionary is the one I prefer to use. I orginally bought it in paper in Austria; that was about $29.99. Then it came out as an app. Super. It bought that. $29.99. But that app stopped working after a little while. Instead, Duden came out with another app. That was another $29.99. I tried to console myself with the idea that it might be a "new edition," but I can't say that it was, and, anyway, why shouldn't the vocabulary be continually updated? Now that new app has stopped working - completely on my iPod touch and partially on my iPads - and I've discovered that there is now another new app. Does it recognize the presence of the earlier app? No. You have to buy the dictionary yet again (in-app) - and this time it is indeed exactly the same editon. Yet another $29.99. No, thank you. I won't buy Duden products anymore - Duden is just too abusive. This program is essentially the same as the iOS one.
