JotterPad, a perfectly good app I've been using for years (and paid for) recently switched to a subscription model.

Did I want any new features? No.

Can I continue using the version I purchased, without getting any new updates? No.

The software industry is broken.


Mind you, this app has no server-side component, which is the excuse most companies use to justify subscriptions. That's one of the big lies of the current ecosystem, that server costs warrant an ongoing subscription. Projects like Solid and Unhosted show that isn't the only way.
