This is why we have a larger install base, but they still have better apps. Get a grip.
The bigger problem is that I actually PAID for the HD version of Splashtop V1 and they said upgrades would be free (just like any other Android app). Now that they've come out with "Version 2" (and made it "free"), if I were to "upgrade", I just wouldn't have the same functionality that I originally paid for!
So when I asked about this, they said that version 2 wasn't really an "upgrade", but an entirely different product - so then why is it called "Version 2"??? The problem is that while version 1 is still usable, I'm sure they are not going to continue to update it, so in effect, I'm left with a "dead" product and would have to pay *again* (via the subscription fees) for features that I already paid for to stay with the current product.
It's bad business and obviously others aren't happy about it either (regardless of Apple "free upgrades" for life BS). All that they had to to was to continue to provide BOTH methods of connection over the internet in "Version 2" - they I could stay continue to do what I've always done and stayed on a current version of the software.
