Good but Could be Better
This app has a lot of great potential and is one I’d love to explore. However, the app makes it impossible to do so. Say I’m an author, that’s my job. But my books aren’t selling like crazy so I turn to this app thinking it’s cheap and helpful with getting the ideas flowing. Then, upon opening it, I find that I get two card sets and the rest I have to spend money I DON’T have on an app I thought was free. I understand the developer must make money himself, but more card sets should be available from the beginning. Say for example, the main feature of this app, The Daily Habit. It’s on the AppStore page and mentioned in the description. If nothing else, shouldn’t this be free? Like I said, this is a beautiful app and it’s one that I wish I had the funds to use correctly. The coins should be able to be earned. Say, for example, every time you complete a Daily Habit you get 5 coins. This would make the process slow, but not impossible and the un-patient people will go straight for the option to purchase coins. I truly wish I could’ve enjoyed this app more, but the system displayed is impossible for my budget. Fix this issue and you’ll have a loyal follower.
I want to like it...
... but I learned long ago not to purchase IAP credits to unlock features in an app. You can't restore them. So if you buy a lot of credits, then need to switch phones, you are out the packs that you bought with those credits. Please correct me if I'm wrong: things may have changed.
Offer a full unlock, or even packs of cards that can be restored, and I will certainly take another look at what this app has to offer. It seems interesting, but I'm not going to get burned again.
It’s interesting that the dev still updates the app, yet totally ignores all of the complaints about the monetization scheme.
IAP currency is horrible for anything that is supposed to last. Offering no way to earn “coins” without buying them makes no sense, unless the goal is to force your customers to re-buy everything later on if they upgrade/replace their phone, or have to reinstall the app for any reason.
If they were to sell the additional card sets for actual money so they could be restored, or offer groups of card packs for sale – like $10-15 for “full access” – I would buy them. No question.
I will not support this form of IAP. Ever.
Good premise, bad delivery.
I would much rather sit through ads than be forced to buy "star coins" to unlock the feature for which I downloaded this app to begin with. They give you 30 coins. Then force you to buy their basic "What kind of writer are you?" package for 10. Well, now that you've slogged through that waste of time, the "beating writers block" bundle (the one this entire app description implies this whole app is about) is 30 coins in and of itself. If you're in my situation, where you are just stuck while writing, don't expect this seemingly free app to help without a price.
