Symphony Pro for iOS
Paying again for the handwriting tool?
hi, I would like to know if it is normal that I am required to pay again $12.99 to use the handwriting feature.
I wasn’t aware when I purchased the app, that I would have to pay twice to access all the features.
Thanks for your help.
When I look at Symphony Pro in the app store, right there staring me in the face is an "In-App Purchase" for the "Handwriting Recognition Tool". Is that not showing in the App Store for you?
Personally, I think the SP team doesn't charge enough! The app is amazing and I would be perfectly happy paying for a subscription if they ever decide they need a recurring revenue stream to continue development.
Compare SP to the price of Sibelius or Finale. While SP might not have all the features of these desktop apps, I find I can work much faster and more intuitively with SP on iPad Pro + Apple Pencil than I can on my desktop.
People spend $12.99 for a couple of cups of coffee and then piss it out. The handwriting tool is licensed from a 3rd party. I used that same handwriting too, the same framework, in other notation apps, and SP's implementation is by far the best.
It's well worth the money, IMHO!
thank you for your insight and your time.
So far, even without the handwriting tool I really appreciate the app and I believe that it is worth the money.
My question wasn’t a criticism. I wanted to make sure that the fees are normal before paying.
it happened to me once with another app. There was an issue somewhere and I paid twice for the same thing, by mistake.
Thanks again for your help.
