One Time Purchase
I understand you're tying to milk every penny from your users, but please for the love of god make the app cost $12 and make it a one-time purchase. I would buy it, but buying a yearly subscription is not an option.
I can understand both positions, and it's still the right of the developer to decide the way he wants to sell its product, if it's good enough, demand will just be there.
On the other side, there are apps that provides both options, for example I have in the past bought my 1Password license (which I'd love to see supported by Termius, with OTP and all) and now I'm subscriber, for complementary features.
Maybe leave the choice to the (honest) customers and they'll reward you if your trust in your product
Totally agree with this one.
Right now, I use Prompt for ssh connections via iOS. The only thing that's preventing me from switching to Termius completely is the subscription... reoccurring payments are simply a nuisance.

This is positively hilarious. People are have no idea how good they have it these days. 15 years ago this would be a $99 shrinkwrap. Keep it the subscription model. I am happy to pay it.

"milk every penny"? Seriously? Got an iPhone and now can't afford $10 per YEAR(!) for the app? Three cups of coffee?
Dear developers, don't listen to these cheap greedy people. They will always complain and never buy anyways, regardless of price.
Thank you for the awesome app.

I agree with the others, a one-off payment would be much preferred than subscription model.
Although we like money as much as the next guy, we do not exactly try to milk every penny from the user. We rather try to find an honest balance between investment and return in a long-term perspective.
The reason why we believe in a subscription-based sales model is that it allows you to pay as you go, while we are ensured of a steady return as long as we keep investing in Termius.
Yes please! Subscription maintenance is becoming a full time job!
That would be really nice .
No one needs Abos
I'd happily pay a one-off $20 or more for a decent app like this but not any form of subscription.
I agree! Please make this happen!
