Hey everyone, Kevin from Light DJ here!
Life as a developer is always full of challenges and learning experiences. While I've been developing software for just over two decades now, I've only been doing mobile development and sales for just over a year. With a better understanding of how app marketing and development works, I've decided to make some changes to to the product that will benefit all users!
Generally, apps are sold in one of two ways: free to download (with in-app purchases), or pay-up-front. The trend lately has been to move to in-app purchases over the paid model, as people generally want to test out an app before they buy it. [Me too!] This poses a problem though, as I can only offer promotions and support giveaways on pay-up-front apps. Support requests rarely come in, but if you're having an issue with the app, I'd like to know about it! (And I'd like to compensate those people for their time with an unlocked version of the app.)
As a result, Light DJ Pro will be moving to a paid-up-front model. Existing users won't have to pay a penny though! Your update will include iPhone and iPad versions of Light DJ with all controllers unlocked! As an added bonus, you'll receive any future updates free-of-charge!
Light DJ users will now receive a Universal app that will include the iPad version (formerly only available with Light DJ Pro). Light DJ will continue to be free-to-dowload with the ability to test out new controllers before you buy them. Creating a Universal binary will also allow me to integrate with other new Apple devices in the future. ;)
So... I think that covers it:
- Light DJ Pro users get a super-awesome, fully loaded app!
- Light DJ users now get an iPad app included.
Look for the update to come in the next day or so with the all-new Matrix controller for both iPhone and iPad!
