Some competition on the way

    I'd really like to know when/where Intua promised free upgrades to everyone who bought BM1.

    Here's what they did say:
    We are really hoping we can work out a paid update system for 2.0, so 1.x customers have a discount price while updating.

    They never promised anything here. They certainly didn't promise a free upgrade. And Apple doesn't make it possible for buyers of one app to get another app at a discount. It's not Intua's fault.

    Regardless, $20 for an app with this kind of functionality is more than fair. I have a hard time believing someone who owns an iDevice doesn't have $20 to throw down for an app they obviously want enough to spend time bitching about it on a forum.
  • Hello,

    Just to clarify something on this very outdated thread.
    BeatMaker 2 is not just an update, it is a completly new application that took nearly 2 years to develop. A lot of hard work has been put into it.
    We still wanted to provide BeatMaker 1 users a discount for buying BeatMaker 2, however, unfortunately, it is technically not possible to do so on the App Store. We contacted Apple various times about it without luck.

    We hope you will understand our position.

    Intua Team.

    I see Intua are giving away free promo codes for BM2. Pity they couldn't honour their previous pledge to their loyal customers.

    I would argue those customers are not loyal if they don't want to support the company and pay a fair price for their products.

    Really. We've waited months and months for the next version on the understanding that our loyalty would be rewarded by having a free upgrade.

    You Intua apologist can bleat on as much as you want but they promised us a free upgrade and then reneged on the deal without so much as a apology or explanation. That is very poor customer service and I'm apauled that they treat their customers this way.

    I think that's a misunderstanding... I really don't know cus I never heard this... But think about it... Anybody can use the "loyalty" excuse, and all the sudden no body pays for it... I don't know about you guys, but I really want to fund some updates with my purchase of BM2... <!-- s8-) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_cool.gif" alt="8-)" title="Cool" /><!-- s8-) -->
