Paying twice for same program
I have used Safari Cookies for years and when it was not getting updated past 2.0 and wouldn't work on my system anymore, I decided to support the developer and purchase Cookie. (Albeit the MAS version, where I realize Apple takes a cut) And I've never regretted that purchase, until now.
Now, while Cookie still functions, it appears to either be at or approaching EOL only a couple months after I purchased it. The main reason I bought it was because I assumed there would be continued updates for a long time to come.
I find this slightly unethical to make users re-purchase the product just because of the relatively small portion of people that are unable to update to El Capitan.
I realize $15 isn't a lot of money for some people, but to others, it's a significant chunk. Especially when you have to spend it again for the same product, when paid-updates weren't even in the scope during the original decision to purchase the software.
There are a couple of better ways the v5 rollout could've been handled. But in light of where we're already at, I'd recommend putting some of those promo codes to use.
I looked it up and I actually bought it on Dec. 8.
Don't get me wrong, it's a great product and definitely worth the $15. Perhaps you should sticky something somewhere so people like me don't get salty over it. But I understand if you don't want to, and that's fine, as long as you're willing to deal with people (e.g. me) getting mad.
I also am unhappy about having to pay twice for the same program. I purchased cookie about 18 month ago so it looks like you are expecting me to pay again for the same program. When I purchased I was given no indication of the short life span on the product I was purchasing, had that been the case I would not have bothered. I will not be paying again because you might be asking me to pay again in another 18 months for Cookie 6.
I'm not planning on any more upgrade fees anytime soon.
I have a biggish update planned that I have started work on, but I think it will be v5.5.
It is a free upgrade to Cookie5 if you purchased after Dec1 2015, send me an email and if you purchased through my store I can find exactly when you purchased. If you purchased before this I have an upgrade coupon you can use if you like.
