Just noticed I was charged five dollars after the upgrade. Something I never authorized and I feel was a sneaky practice by the developers. Consider this app deleted and good luck with your overpriced app.
PLOTAVERSE App Reviews
But then, you decided to change a charming app into a sign up and complicate everything model. Congratulations, I’m deleting this app. Other Cinemagraph apps have done similarly, I erased them too. Wonderful apps removed or reduced, made complicated, cluttered and made less accessible. Pfff.
This app which I initially loved has become something that annoys me to no end. I paid for this app PRIOR to the Platoverse or whatever they call it. And now if I want the app to not have “try me for free” banner at the bottom of the screen I would need to pay for a subscription?!? BS - this is greedy crap. I paid for this app already and should have to deal with a banner in my workspace. I avoid apps like this one has become because it encroaches on my creative flow as well as wanting cash consistently from my wallet. I regret ever giving my you my money and I also regret referring this app to my friends and creative colleagues. If I could give this zero stars I would.
Love this App. Very much:)
Cool app with cool effects however be warned that the second you download it even if you don’t open the app you are automatically enrolled in a free 3 day trial then billed $4.99 a month after that. There’s probably fine print somewhere but it’s not meant to be readily visible. I will not trust ANY developer that tries to pull this garbage on people.
I had a lot of fun with the bought and paid for plotagraph app...Now you have imposed a monthly subscription fee...I am skilled enough to create actual time lapse’s So I’ll be deleting your new app...
An old artist friend of mine posted a picture on Facebook of him painting a huge mural, a painting of astronauts floating by earth near their spaceship. I imported that photo into Plotaverse, I added a few animation arrows and a glare overlay with particles. When I pressed play, the mural had turned into a little SciFi movie! The glare totally looks like a moving cam. I’m totally addicted to playing with this app on late nights and surprising friends with super artsy mini movies.
App bait and switch under FALSE PRETENSES. Update merely labelled "bug fixes" replaced app with new app w/ subscription and other undesirable features. Many were hoodwinked. This is bad behavior and not accidental. Friends, dont just complain. These people did something wrong and are never going to give you back what they connived from you. Make your fed-upness with this kind of behavior make a difference -- leave a review of your dissatisfaction and DELETE the app. I assure you, your upsettedness will not matter to them if you stick with them anyway. DELETE. [Update: Dev Response below fails to address the substance of this review. Sadly, this is not surprising.]
What is with this new upsell, I hate this. Just looking to use the product I paid for but now am inundated with prompts for me to upgrade to another product. Super annoying!
Where can you go within this app to turn off the automatic renew??
The app hangs in limbo when trying to purchase the full version. Would like to give it a fair rating if it’s able to work.
I paid the $5 and totally worth the 3 days fun. When I saw the big upgrade I hoped it might have further use. But first, sign an 18 page contract of rules and prohibitions and chose one of the different levels of fees. I am more than willing to pay for software But this monthly fee is getting crazy. Some apps think they are worth $6 a month realize they probably should’ve asked per year. Oh, oops unless you already paid for it. Hey if it’s a big upgrade I’ll pay for the app again. Three of my go-to painting apps rewrote their apps and I was the first in line to pay to upgrade. This one , I have to remove it because of all that. By the way, it only costs $10 a month to use Photoshop. A $700 program. If you HAD to go nuts and threaten people with watermarks, 18 page contracts and monthly fees the very least you could have done was let us have back the Plotagraph app we paid for and you keep,the plotoverse for whatever mind games you want.
I thought, fun, try it. I paid the $5 and totally worth the 3 days fun. When I saw the big upgrade I wondered if it might have use. No. An approx. 18 page contract of rules and prohibitions and what’s with all the different levels of fees. I live with 2 software developers so I am more than willing to pay for software The monthly fee is getting crazy. Some apps think they are worth $6 a month realize they probably should’ve asked per year. One downgraded back to original software after relentless begging. Finally got our app back at 6.99 a month, no, oops, a year, oops unless you already paid for it. Hey if it’s a big upgrade I’ll pay for the app again. I never use free apps. It’s worth it to get rid of the ads. Three of my go to painting apps rewrote their apps and I was in the first day line to pay to upgrade this one , it is not necessary for my art so I have to remove it because of all that.
I bought this app for one time payment and without notifying they changed it to month to month subscription. Where is the version I bough and where is company’s commitment?
Very easy to use, great video quality, everything runs excellent, I’m going to try it for 1 month
Not Interested In Renting Apps
I’m curious as to what sort of person needs to make artsy animated GIFs often enough that spending $5/month sounds like a good deal... Deleted.
I bought the app now Im constantly pestered to try for free the subscription model. No thank you, not interested. Never will be. How can I get rid of this annoying message?
I paid $5 for this app and now it’s asking to pay a monthly subscription? Why did I even pay that amount to begin with if I’m just gonna get ripped off later by making me pay a monthly fee?
I loved the original and paid. The update is messy, confusing and pushes a subscription model within the app you already paid for. The app is great and it works better with Apple Pencil, the upsell and in-app marketing are annoying.
When I first purchased this few months ago, there was no subscription to pay for, just a one time payment. I knew they were fooling people trying to grab some money first. I’m gonna demand Apple customer service for a refund in the morning ?
