Ben LoveJoy over at 9to5Mac has written a very good summary of the app subscription hooha that has popped up over the past week, largely as a result of the subscription model being adopted by the folks that make Ulysses. Here’s his conclusion which I agree with.
I can’t help feeling that the whole subscription model is at some point going to implode. Some people will simply refuse to get on board at all – like those who say they are done with Ulysses – while others will eventually reach breaking point. One or two low-cost subscription apps, well, ok, maybe. But what happens when it’s ten? Twenty? At some point, people are going to say enough is enough.
