Bring the price down to something reasonable, like $10/yr. A recurring $60/yr charge is just too high.
The price is 3 times higher than MS Office suite family pack! Really?
$10/yr is fully fine. Like many others here, I prefer to buy software to support developers, but not $100/yr for just a terminal.
The sad part is I want to support you guys, but the rates you think your software is worth for me to have 1 feature I want (snippets) and one feature is a nice to have (sync) isn't worth the $100.00 a year you want to charge. If you wanted to charge me $100.00 for a one times fee for a full version i.e V2 then I pay for V3 if I wanted to then I would be ok. Even a $1.00-$5.00 a month fee wouldn't be to bad, but at this price I rather spend my money on other things vs supporting software I like but do not love.
Compared to other subscription services, the price of the application is totally disproportionate for what it offers (we are still waiting for portknocking in the desktop version)
I agree. I don't understand why the price is so high for an SSH app.
I'm still on a pretty old plan paying 30€ per year. I think that's a pretty reasonable price. 100$ is way too much.
This is to expensive! 50-60 USD per year would be reasonable.
Like the desktop and Android apps enough that I'd pay $30 a year for pro. But nearly a hundred bucks. Not happening.

I have been trying really hard to justify expending money on the full app and so far have decided not to. I really like all ternius apps. But the pricing is just ridiculous. Not even ms office sub is this expensive and that comes with a huge amount cloud space and a big ass software suite that is waaaaaay more labor intensive to maintain. I'd pay 2 or 3 USD/month at the most. anything else is insane.

The price is ridiculous. I will never buy this at current price. Free version forever!!!

Yeah, sorry $60 I could just about convince myself, but I won’t be renewing for $99 and it really should be $25 pa tops
$10/month is ultra expensive for Termius, most people agree that any over $2/month it to much just for sync a few MB (passwords and keys are just text mainly) compared for example with:
- $1 for 50GB on iCloud
- $5 for 30GB on Google Suite Drive (Plus Enterprise Email, and all the Google services
- $5 for 1TB on Office 365 (plus Enterprise Exchange Email, Word, Excel, PP, etc, and all Microsoft services and licenses included)
Its insane that you charge $10 for Termius alone, I need the sync feature that you can just even integrate with iCloud like a lot other apps.
Please remember that almost all of your users are developers and its easy to find out all this things. you are loosing a lot of recurring customers incomes. I totally agree that you charge a monthly fee so the app can be well maintained but at a fraction of the current price like $1/month. Please think about it.
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 .

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.
