Why did Cinemin switch from a freemium to a paid app?

In November 2023, we changed Cinemin from a free-to-download app with a Lifetime in-app purchase (IAP), and monthly and yearly subscriptions, to a paid download.

This change means that all the features previously unlocked via IAP or subscription are now available to all users without any extra costs. Cinemin will continue to be updated and supported, just like our other paid apps.

Your subscription will automatically end without any necessary action from you. However, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our support team.

Why did we make this change?

First, we want to express our gratitude to those who subscribed to Cinemin or purchased the Lifetime IAP. Your support led to a successful launch, positive press coverage, and encouraging customer feedback.

However, we found it challenging to compete with the numerous free apps available. We believe that Cinemin will perform better as a paid application in the long term and allow us to support it for many years to come.
