Insane Price Point

I installed and deleted it immediately... I’ve paid for my favourite mobile editing app (MuseCam) in the past, and enjoy the purchase. I also have paid $40-50 on the Mac App Store for Affinity Photo, my full featured editing suite. For $5/WEEK you can edit with their presets, or for their self claimed 85% discounted yearly subscription of $35/Year, you can have the presets under that price format. Something’s gotta change here

Edit: I knew something had to be wrong with my initial notion. I reinstalled the app, and sure enough, I missed a sneaky little greyed out ‘X’ in the top left corner. After clicking it, you can proceed to the free version of the app, which I have to say is quite nice. You seem to get two presets from each of the collections they give you, and I am impressed with their image processing algorithms, they are nice. I still don’t take back my words about the insanely high subscription model price point, but I’ll leave 5 stars for the actual app. It clearly has been well thought out.

So many effects!

I have the free version and it’s so amazing that it makes me want to get the gold version. That’s how apps should be! With most apps, they make it impossible to enjoy using unless you pay because they want you to buy a subscription. That always just turns me off and makes me delete the app because I don’t like feeling pressured into buying something just to enjoy it. But I’ve been using prequel for over a year, maybe two, and it’s the exact opposite! There are so many filters and effects that you can use even with the free version, there aren’t a millions ads popping up all the time, and it doesn’t feel like they’re pressuring you to get a subscription or be forced to stop using the app altogether! I can’t stress enough how much there is to do even with the free version of this app, and how much that makes me WANT to get the gold version. I don’t mind paying to have access to even more filters/effects because they’ve given me the chance to see how much is available even for free, so I know that the paid version must be even more amazing. THIS is how apps should be, and other apps should take notes. I will be getting a gold subscription as soon as I can because I WANT to not because I feel like I HAVE TO.

Unsubscribe Nightmare

I wanted to do a 3 day trial. So as soon as I downloaded this app I went to my subscriptions to cancel before getting charged the weekly. I still got charged $4.99 week after week. Come to find out unlike other apps in the app store this app uses the Apple API to also login their website to create a login & subscription as well & collecting your Apple email address which I don’t give out to anyone due to security & to prevent spam/junk mail being sent to me. So while you add the app through the App Store & think it’ll be as simple as to unsubscribe before being charged you have to go to their help button do a search for the unsubscribe. Which doesn’t gives you a direct link but only tells you where to go to do such. You have to go to the company website then login using the API to unsubscribe. So even if you went the normal route of unsubscribing an app by going through Apple ID, purchases/subscription, cancel subscription. You still have to go to Prequel actual website to officially cancel the subscription or you’ll still get charged. On Apple request a refund Prequel shows up as a free app so to requesting a refund is a grayed out option due to this. I’m reporting this as a scam to Apple & requesting for a refund. So far you guys STOLEN & owe me for 5 weeks of payments after I canceled the subscription from the App Store 5 weeks ago.
