Airmail for iOS is now free to download at the App Store, but press releases and multi-account support have become premium features priced at $ 2.99 per month or $ 9.99 per year in the United States. The app was previously available for a $ 4.99 one-time task with all features unlocked.
Talking about changing the price of features already shipped …
Due to the value, the change seems to be in violation of Apple's App Store Review Guidelines, which state "if you change your existing app to a subscription-based business model , you should not remove the primary functionality that existing users have already paid for. "
Customers who bought the app still have access to multiple accounts, but not push notifications that are a page service of the app, and do not prevent the use of the app's core effect.
We understand the user's frustration, it was decided to keep the business sustainable as we face increasing costs for backend service.
