Title: PAID VERSION for My Favorites!
Post by: menion on March 17, 2011, 12:58:37
Hi whole who help me lot with work on locus by translation, donation, reporting bugs and more and more.

As you already know, I want to publish payed version on market (probably today evening). I'm working on Locus as almost full-time job for around half and year and now I need to know, if there is chance to have some reward for this or not.

Anyway, this is not why I'm writing this post. Many people sacrifice time and money to Locus and I want to give payed version to them for free of course. After my examination on google checkout, I discovered that there is no chance to return money to buyer and keep him as valid user of Locus PRO.

So, here is list of people who helped me a lot and I really want to give them payed version for free. So if you want (and I'm not pushing you of course) write me email with some credentials like paypal or bank account and I'll send you cost of payed version back!!

So, if you think you should be here on list, write me. If you want money for payed version (if you buy it of course :) ) back, write me (day when you buy version, donators - day and amount you send me). If you feel cheated, write me. And if you want to let me enjoy time and money you gave me, please do not write me anymore :D

I really think Locus should be available in a paid PRO version, simply because such a brilliant app should give Menion something back in terms of money, not only honor. I will be more than happy to pay for a PRO version.
Locus is really a golden application! I am so impressed by all the great features, and by menion's responsiveness . I have had quite a bit of emails with Menion, and he has implemented all my requests! And from the forum discussions I notice that more is coming.

I think I have been through all map apps on the market and there is no one even close to Locus.

all will remain. Both version have different package name so you can have both in system. Free, more frequently updated for testing and payed for normal usage. Also data on card are shared so don't worry, they'll work in both!

I bought your app today!

I have not contributed yet, but I wish to translate Locus into Danish if you like.

But still I don't want my money back. I wish to support this great program which deserves a lot of success!

Cheers,
Martin

Can you please add an information how to safely replace the free version with the paid one? I would like to keep all the maps and points.
Title: Re: PAYED VERSION for My Favorites!
Post by: menion on March 24, 2011, 15:50:08
David, both version are almost same. At least same that use same data. I'll keep both using same data so you can have free and pro both together on one machine without problem. Only problem is when you run both of them at once ... so rather do not do this :)

This is a really excellent app!

I stumbled across this app when I was googling on a way to easily download Google Maps. After playing around with it for just 2 days, I like it so much that I just bought the Pro version from the market 5 mins ago even though the only difference seems to be the lack of ads, just to show my support for your hard work. Keep up the good work!

One question - any plans for an iPhone/iPod version?

Cheers,

By the way, in case anyone wants to know:-

I didn't delete the Free version before downloading the Pro version and was pleasantly surprised that all my earlier offline maps appeared on the Pro version automatically! Will prob keep the Free version for a couple of days before deleting.

Thanks again for a great app!

I'm glad you like it ;)

1. Free and Pro share same data on disk so you can keep Pro and use Free for some testing here from forum. It's not a problem

2. differences are not only ads - http://locus.asamm.cz/?page_id=284 (http://locus.asamm.cz/?page_id=284) - and slowly will come more

you installed it from market? Hmm interesting ... I have no answer on this. Just try it once more. I have to be some problem with downloading. Phone restart maybe should help?

Glad you went to a pro version. By far the best offline GPS app.

For people like me living in an unauthorised country for android payment, you can use following trick : insert in your phone a sim card coming from an authorised country (USA, France, Germany aso), even if the sim card is not valid anymore, you can connect to the market via wifi, pay, and download Locus Pro.

It is also useful to update pro version of Locus.

Would never even think of asking you to send me the money paid for the app.

I'm using your app alot in geocaching, and is thrilled every time I use it.


Just keep up the good work, Menion, looking forward to see what new features you give us in the future!
