Rim brought up the subject in an e-mail to us all and someone decided to repost it here.
I'm not complaining, simply saying why I choose not to upgrade at this point and that I did'd get full value from the previous release (other than trying and learning the software a bit) like Rim assumes in his e-mail. Regardless I take full responcibility for buying early
Please keep a good tone and happy holidays to all.
Its a typical tactic/response of those who have invested into any software, or hardware. It justifies their purchase.
I mean "How can anyone not be happy with this?"
Any question or opinion is "whinging" or "crying", before you know it we'll be calling them fanboys, and it'll all go tits up.
If Rim wants to surround himself with sycophants he has the ideal vehicle for this in here. Me, Ill be on the rest of the internet discussing what I think is good, bad, value, not value. And that's just the way it is.
First of all, correct me if I’m wrong here, but if the price of Auria was/is $25, and the upgrade price is $40, how does that add up to $90? I’m new to the app, so maybe I’m missing something.
AP could realistically be $90. I think what people are saying here is that you have no realistic concept of what Auria Pro is worth. That’s our view of the world. It has nothing to do with some allegiance to a particular product or developer. No need to justify my purchase. I’m sure we’ve all complained about apps we bought that truly did fall way short of their promise. AP has easily lived up to its promise, despite some people misinterpreting the price. It’s a absolute bargain if measured against the competition, considering the content and what went in as far as development time, even for people who made the mistake of buying something they didn’t need when it was just audio and have to pay more in total. And Auria looks like a good bargain for people who don’t need what Pro does. If you don’t think so, go make music with whatever suits you better.
What are you trying to accomplish here? You’re not really a user, so you’re not in a position to know the app in any detail. If you’re intention is to provide a platform for enthusiastic users to talk about what a bargain it is as a reaction to your complaining, then I suppose we can thank you for that.
