  1. Let me just echo some key points above: 1) You never addressed the 10 folder limit, which seems to be an even bigger issue to most people than the price. 2) The only good thing about a subscription model is that YOU no longer have to produce meaningful updates to get paid a yearly fee. Software should be paid for, fine. But it shouldn't be paid for in-advance. This isn't kickstarter. You're not a contractor that we pay to create a solution to our specifications. You create a product, we buy that product, you use the money raised from that product to create a new product. And so on.
  2. You don't see anything weird about installing this software on a bunch of computers on a LAN, disconnecting that LAN from the internet, and then having to pay $40/year to someone else to keep it working?
  3. From http://forum.bittorrent.com/topic/34298-private-identity-difference-between-free-and-pro/?p=100080 "Yep, identity is a part of free tier and My Devices folders are part of Pro. For the folder reconnection - you can always produce a link and reconnect it via link. In Sync Free new folders (and folders removal) are not distributed over My Devices - so you have to maintain it manually. When the license runs out (Sync will warn you in advance) My devices won't longer sync new folders / deleted folders. Existing folders will sync with some changes: on-demand folders will turn into sync-all folders and will get paused. Also, user access control will not let you do any changes."

  5. Let me add to the sentiment that the issue isn't charging for the software. The issue is charging a subscription without providing any clear service. I pay $40 this year to get a fully featured Sync 2.0 client -- great. What am I paying $40 for next year?
  6. I'll gladly pay a subscription for services, but what service does Sync provide? As far as I can gather, the whole point is that nothing lives on their servers. I'd gladly pay $40 for this piece of software. ONCE. If version 3.0 comes out next year with a bunch of sexy features, then I might consider paying again to get those features. But I don't want to give money in perpetuity to develop features I probably don't care about. Even in its current incarnation I don't have any use for most of the Pro features (my use case involves a single user).
  7. Will all this new stuff (Personal identities, etc.) work between machines on a local network not connected to the internet, or is this data stored on BT's servers?
  8. So I'm upgrading to the Free tier of 2.0, with no plans to use the Pro tier. I'm baffled as to what I will lose after 30 days. According to: http://help.getsync.com/customer/portal/articles/1901245-what-s-new-is-sync-2-0- it appears that the identity is part of the free tier, but having a unified list of folders is part of the Pro tier? Additionally, once I disconnect from a folder, I can't reconnect to it unless I have a Pro account? How are identities and folders managed at the free tier? What happens when the Pro trial runs out? Thanks.
