Bring the price down to something reasonable, like $10/yr. A recurring $60/yr charge is just too high.
no SH*T.... this is BS because NOW They are $99!!! I think... but yeah I thought it was $10 a year not a f****** month.... this is RIDICULOUS.... yes I'd rather spend my time bi****** than do something important like work on my site because I'll be DAM** if I pay $99 after COVID... FY Termius. YOU WILL COME BACK DOWN you are at home, working on this program. In your undies while some of us still have to work. In the REAL WORLD. WITH REAL PEOPLE. Some people are going to be busting their asses doing other things like Facebooking or something more interesting but if you don't come DOWN you are going to LOSE A LOT OF BUSINESS because people can't afford your price. So I'll take the ONE MONTH... no I won't. I'm going to look for a free service.
This is just ridiculous .
Adobe company .
Since this post was created, the cost of Termius has rocketed to $100 per year ($8.33 x 12) and that *includes* the annual 'discount' - that's crazy.
For $139 you can get *three years* of updates (thereafter, a perpetual license) with Van Dyke's SecureCRT (or for $179 you can get SecureCRT + SecureFX). That provides far more functionality: python scripting, per-session options, export options, proper terminal emulation and deeply customizable configuration. That license covers you for Mac, Windows or Linux.
Or EmTec's ZOC for $80, a perpetual license which is a worthy contender to SecureCRT (with slightly fewer features) but it still provides better value for money, and is more powerful, than Termius.
I'm not interested in synching my SSH keys and passwords to your server. And cloud storage doesn't cost $100.
I'd be willing to pay $20 for Termius on iOS (or $2 billed monthly) - anything more just doesn't make sense.
I'm not interested in Termius' desktop platforms, they're bloated and use Electron. There are far better, and cheaper, alternatives.
Why not offer folks - for whom reasonable pricing is important - the option to pay an annual subscription fee of around $20 for iOS / Android (or, $30 for iOS *and* Android) and do something similar with your desktop pricing?
At $20, you'd have my money without much thought. At $100 I'm going to use the free version and/or your competitors. You pay less for Microsoft Office 365 and that comes with a ton of functionality.
Even the Ycombinator community seem to think the price is outrageous.
TL;DR - I'm all for supporting indie developers but I'll only subscribe to Termius if you introduce a reasonable price point.
Love the app! It would be great if you could buy it once to unlock all features, instead of a subscription.

Here's my two cents. If Termius had an upfront cost and then an annual sync service fee, I think it would be more palatable. Maybe $10 for the app (which is being generous imo, considering how immature it is compared to existing SSH terminals, which also happen to be free), and $5/year for sync.
But let's be honest. Even $5 a year is a little high considering just how little data and bandwidth actually needs to travel to Termius' servers. Your keys (if you choose to store them in Termius) would be the largest data syncing. Even then, unless you have hundreds or more, the data payload shouldn't even hit 1 meg.
From the bandwidth usage rates I've seen on cloud providers, that's way below the threshold for even charging fractions of a cent. So unless you were somehow spamming the sync feature to sync hundreds of thousands of times a year, you wouldn't even accumulate a gig of usage. Heck, even $1 would more than cover that much usage spread over a year.
Imagine a cloud provider charging $1 for a gig of bandwidth. They'd lose all their business.
+1 on the "termius lite" suggestion from i2zla below
sure $100 per person per year is reasonable for corporates, but its way out for any other use
how about a basic featureset for lower cost? Sync + a few others but no need for macros etc?
I can't even verify my mail properly, the link doesn't work. should i really subscribe this app (lol)
but yeah a non one-time payment is a huge no-no for me, hopefully we can get better.. pricing maybe

I too, agree on how EXPENSIVE termius is.
I would love to pay for such a very useful software solution. But whenever I look at the pricing ,ill have second thoughts.
Bring the price down to something reasonable.
Agree, and even in a work environment it's not justify. On macos and windows, you have the excellent paid soft zoc7 (80$ in one time payment) which do the job perfectly. But Termius has the sync feature than others did not have..but not for 100$/y.
I've got to agree here. I love supporting developers and paying for software, but only when it's reasonable. $100/year is crazy (in the bad way) for what you're getting, especially when it's for personal use and not for work.
I see a lot of people suggesting a one-time purchase but that's not really feasible for sustainability with active services.
Might I suggest a mixed model? Perhaps a one-time premium account fee and then a small monthly subscription fee? For example, charge $25 for a premium account that comes with three months of premium and then after that, it's $5/mo for personal use and include a discount for paying annually, like you do now.
I really want to support this company but the price is just way too high to justify. I can use my $100 elsewhere and get way more bang for my buck.
Termius is a nice program. I am using the free version on iOS and Windows. But not so often. I would pay $60 (or even more) for a full featured version without an account. But only once not every year.
I suggest to offer a single payment license.

Office 365 has the same $10/mo $100/yr pricing. Office, however, has quite a bit more value to match that price point; like a terabyte of cloud storage, sharing your benefits with others, more features than you can shake a stick at, etc.
By contrast, Termius offers razor-thin functionality and cursory convenience, none of the customizability of Office, disruptive updates, and so on. There's really no good justification for Termius' asking price.
I am deeply disappointed with your pricing. I just wanted to be able to sync my hosts or at least export/import manually. Come on, $10/month for personal use? $100 annually? I don't need snippets, or agent forwarding, or Touch/Face ID, or Import from AWS, or Host Chaining, or Autocomplete, or SOCKS Proxy, or Port-knocking. Why should I pay for all it? I believe it's a lousy way to pricing: all or nothing.
I registered to post in agreement. I've used the free version of Terminus, was very satisfied, but will have to seek an alternative due to pricing.
May I suggest an additional tier, with the same features of premium, but limited to a reasonable number of maximum connections?
I don’t use it enough to justify the $100/year. The only pro feature I want is the background sessions on iOS.
I wouldn't mind to pay the current subscription fee if Group and Snipets sharing become available soon.
For me is 100,07/year
Looking for some alternative....

I agree, 60 a year is nuts for a mobile app.
Are you homeless? C’mon bro. Why don’t you make a better version of the app and give it away for free?
