Finally!!! but $14.99mo… was not expecting that
Hi Adrian, thanks!
Today apps become more powerful, sophisticated (and fun) - it takes much more time, effort and great talent to keep innovating and supporting these kind of apps. uMake is one of them - we bootstrapped for almost 2 years, just because we love what we do and really want to make a difference and help others to express their ideas in 3D.
Eventually, we’re looking for the support of our community. We think a monthly payment of $14.99 (or $12/mo on a yearly basis) is fair and if we can save you at least 1 hour a month, you already covered these expenses for that month. Subscription based model means that we are obligated to support and improve uMake constantly to create the best experience for you.
I hope that makes sense and would love to continue the discussion around pricing and business models - as you know, we’re creating a unique product in a new platform and any feedback would be apperciated!
Don’t get me wrong I totally understand the level of awesomeness you guys have achieved and the amount of work that goes/went into it. I’ve have not tried uMake (will do as soon as I get home today), but the price seems reasonable from what I’ve seen.
I’m commenting as someone that does not do design for a living, it is one of my passions, but is mainly a hobby, so my need and resources probably fall right in between of your free and Pro versions.
That’s a good feedback and we do think there’s a room for other tiers as well (students, hobbyists and more).
We’re working hard on bringing more great things to uMake and that way we could support other use-cases and audience that are interested in uMake.
