After reading complaints from many users (including me) about the Pocket Casts (Pocket Casts Plus) subscription service, which would be charged even to those who had paid for the web version in the past, the app went back and will honor the contract. which existed before this week's move and offered lifelong access to desktop apps and the web player.
This week Pocket Casts, one of the most popular podcast apps, is no longer paid in smartphones and tablets, but it brought a subscription plan that gives access to the web version of the player, PC and Mac apps, and 10GB of cloud space for the user to listen to their music inside the player – wherever they are.
The subscription is called Pocket Casts Plus, costs $ 3.90 per month and $ 39.80 per year. The problem was that this access to desktop and web version apps was already charged before the move and payment gave lifetime access to the service. When the app's business plan changed, users who had already paid for this extra could use Plus for three years at no extra charge.
Since the two proposals do not fit (lifelong does not last three years, right?), Many payers have complained a great deal everywhere. The complaint was such that Pocket Casts CEO Owen Grover reviewed the attitude and decided to honor the first contract. Now anyone who has paid the price for web access has Pocket Casts Plus for life.
The news is automatic and is inserted in each one's account, but I noticed a curious point in my iOS account. It says that the "lifetime" will last 37 years and will end in 2118. I don't even know if I'll be alive by then, but I imagine that something lifelong should last for a lifetime and not for 37 years.
