Todoist Premium subscription price more attractive
With a plethora of web and mobile applications, all charging for premium features, it soon adds up to a huge bill deterring many from opting in.
Making the pricing more attractive has a better chance of people like me, who use it for personal use, willing to purchase premium options.
I personally would prefer a one off price of $20-30 for a lifetime upgrade to premium or if annual then in the range of $5-10.
I personally am thinking that they should split the license into 2 plans. The first plan, probably consisting of a one time fee should allow for some of the premium features of the application (but not server or cloud based services) to be unlocked (e.g. ability to add notes, label system, task search, project templates, extra project codes, colored labels, etc).
And then they can charge an additional annual subscription for some of the services that they provide (e.g. ability to upload files, task reminders through email and SMS, karma system, backups and ical sync).
Personally I do not see the need to pay an annual subscription for services which I can do without. I would happily purchase the app for $29 as a one time payment. But I do not think I would pay $29 every year for this app
I would pay $40 lifetime.. but be able to do it on payments.
I recognise the need to pay for something. The subscription model does have the advantage of funding continuing support and development.
The free version is lacking some pretty essential features, so even small-time use needs the Premium subscription, which works out expensive for personal use.
I think two levels of Premium subscription would be good, one modest cost for personal use and a more expensive one for business/company use. What should be held back for the 'gold' subscription? Email/SMS reminders, sync iCal, backups, any forthcoming collaboration/sharing beyond 2 users and how about limiting the number of tasks or projects (but not too low). Paying more the more you use it is fair.
I would pay $60 for lifetime license like Trillian. It's too expensive to pay monthly. :/
