Hi there Devs,
I think skritter is a great app but I would like to make a suggestion.
Add microtransactions as an alternative to the traditional subscription.
My situation is that I have a 7 yo that is starting off japanese. He’s going to learn ~ 40 words this next year (or two) if that. It doesn’t make sense to pay the traditional subscription fee for him to have a skritter account (for me).
However, if you have a microtransaction option; ie: 100 characters for $2-5 ; I could easily justify that.
Your current business model really only works for business people or hard core students that are testing / adding words all the time.
How about the children.
Seriously though, you have a great app but you’re only allowing whales to use it with your fee structure. You’re squeezing out everyone else. I am sure the subscription model makes sense for some but given that many companies have gone microtransactions; maybe it’s time to reevaluate things.
Even for my account, I stopped my subscription as I had taken a break from my studies. Now, I want to add one or two words now and then; so I’ve reverted to using Pleco flashcards for my new vocabularly. It is a shame that your great product is so underused.
