    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.
