I am thinking of purchasing omnifocus for Mac. Right now it is version 3.9.1. So my idea is that if I buy it, in brief Omnifocus for mac I imagine that it will be at 4 and I will have to pay for an update.
Also, I have seen in this blog that they want to unify the purchases and I have bought OF3 for iPad and I do not know if in the future it would serve me or would need to have OF3 for Mac …
What would you guys do???
I have asked support but they don’t tell me anything clear because they don’t even know it … and I want to know it because I don’t want an App subscription (I hate it, I like the license forever)
A curious link with information is here:
### With major new upgrades to your apps on the way, should I buy them today?
If you just want to get work done rather than worrying about timing, your best option might be to purchase a subscription! As noted earlier, subscriptions require the least up-front investment and always give you access to the latest version of our apps, enabling every feature on every platform. Team subscriptions are available today, and as noted above personal subscriptions will be available very soon.
But while we’re on the topic of licensing…
Over the last decade, the ways that apps are designed and built aren’t the only things which have changed: market expectations around how apps are bought and sold have also changed. Rather than buying independent apps for each platform (Mac, iPhone, iPad), in today’s market we expect to be able to purchase an app once and use it on every device where that app is available. This is already true for all of our subscriptions (where one universal subscription gives you access to the app on all devices), and as we look to the future we think it’s appropriate to use this model for our traditional licenses as well.
To that end, starting with OmniPlan 4 (but ultimately expanding to include our entire productivity suite), whether you purchase our apps using a subscription or a traditional license your purchase will be a universal purchase which unlocks the app on every device where it can run.
