One-Time Purchases
Mimir offers a one-time purchase to unlock Mimir Pro for your macOS devices. Mimir Pro includes silence skip, custom skip sounds, voice boost, and Continuous Playback. This allows users to make a single purchase for an enhanced app experience without being tied to a subscription.

Purchasing Mimir Pro will unlock features for all macOS devices using the same Apple ID. Mimir Pro for iOS is purchased separately.

Subscription
Mimir offers two subscription plans that unlocks Mimir Premium with access to all features of the app on both iOS and macOS. Choose from a monthly plan or a discounted yearly plan that can be cancelled at anytime. Purchasing a subscription will unlock all the features of Mimir Pro, removes ads, and also unlocks Mimir Premium on iOS.

A subscription plan helps me pay for the 3rd party services that are used to offer features such as recommendations, search, and curated lists. As a solo developer, a subscription plan allows me to keep these services paid for which keeps Mimir on the store since they are a constant cost. Thank you for understanding and supporting independent development!

Apple Podcasts Killer

Mimir is awesome! It's display is clean and the set up for listening to podcasts in an order I decide upon is excellent. I stumbled upon Mimir while looking for a replacement for Apple's Podcasts app which stopped working after updating to macOS 11.3.1 and I am very glad I found Mimir. Grant (Developer) is very responsive and helpful, I'm a 'boomer so I need help figuring tech out some times and he has always gotten back to me with in a few hours or less. Once the iOS version is released I will become a Kool-Aid drinking fanboy.

I'm so happy to hear you are enjoying the app. Thank you for the great review!

A hidden gotcha with iOS.

In many ways, this looks like a promising app, so promising I decided to purchase the desktop app. Since I am trying to get away from subscriptions, I opted for the one-time purchase.

When it caame time to set up the iOS version, I figured: why not? And went to purchase the iOS app even though it is in beta. Much to my chagrin, the single Pro version does not remove ads, which is really annoying. If I had known that, I would have just opted for the subscription for both.

So I knowed off a start because it should be abundantly clear what is, and is not, included on each version of the app, so a user can make an informed purchasing decision.

Developer Response ,

Hi Araquen, sorry about the confusion with the iOS Pro version. There are feature checkmarks that indicate ads are not removed with Pro purchases on the iOS app, which do not show on the Mac app because Ads are not in the desktop version.

I will see if I can add better visuals to the mac app to make it more clear. I appreciate you downloading the app and giving the app a shot. Sorry if you think I am trying to pull a "gotcha" on you, that is not my intent at all!

Best Podcast App and can't wait for iOS version!

I use Mimir daily and couldn't be happier. This is my goto way to listen to podcasts while working. And when the iOS version comes I'll be listening while the go! The developer has been super responsive and helpful. I wish more apps were this good!
