I like it a lot. Makes sense to see time as a circle.

I made a suggestion that they make it so June is at the very bottom, and December is at the very top. That makes the most sense to me since June is the 6th month (so the 6:00 position in the circle, and December is the 12th month (so the 12:00 position in the circle. As it is, they are a little off-kilter.

Let's see how responsive they are.

It’s a subscription now

I’d buy it if it were a one time purchase. But it’s hard to justify a subscription.

Update in regards to the developer reaching out to explain their reasoning for moving to a subscription. See the thing is I actually hadn’t updated the app in about a year to avoid the subscription. I was forced to when I upgraded to a new phone. The original purchase app was good enough for me. It let me add events and track dates in a convenient format. From a consumer point of view further updates were largely unnecessary and if it means moving to ‘software as a service,’ unwanted. As it stands now the free app version does nothing for me. I can’t enter events anymore without upgrading.
Long story short, from the consumer side this was a major step back. I no longer have a use for this app. My need is for the long haul ie. years. And I have no interest in paying for the app a dozen times over in that time. Updates were not necessary.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for rating and the chance to explain why we introduced a subscription.

CircleTime was removed from sale a couple of years ago, and hasn't had a proper update for new devices even longer. In order to bring it back from the dead and ensure the same thing doesn't happen again, we had to come up with a more reliable funding - one that doesn't involve tracking our users, selling their personal data and bombarding them with pesky ads.

At certain point developers realized that 'pay once, use forever' model had become unsustainable. It may have worked in the dawn of mobile applications when development was simpler, shorter and less expensive. It still works for certain products, such as games that you play once and then forget about, but not so much for productivity apps that require continuous updates for reliable functioning. Comparative apps have already adopted subscription based model (a.k.a. 'software as a service'), and it should come as no surprise that we did the same, albeit late.

From a user perspective- if I enjoy using the app and wish to see it evolve and grow into something truly remarkable, I'll gladly support it by subscribing. Especially if it's a developer who responds to users' feedback and includes their suggestions whenever possible. :)

Fantastic!

This app is a fantastic new take on the "old standard" way of looking at a planner. The graphic layout is a lot of fun and very intuitive. It seems a little odd at first but the more you use it, the more you realize that this is the way you think of dates and time in your head already. Only now, you don't have to convert it. It's just right there in front of you on your screen.

The app sync's to the phone's original planner so you can still see all of your events in either format you wish. As for me, I just buried the old planner in a folder of standard apps that come with the iPhone but I don't use and can't delete.

Customer service is great too. I wrote them an email with an idea for a little "tweek" that I thought might make the app a bit better. The strangest thing happened... THEY WROTE BACK THE NEXT DAY! Thought I had a good idea and they would try to implement it on the next update. Nice to see a company actually listen to their users for a change.

Great app from a great company. Download it now and give yourself a few days to get used to it. You won't go back!
