Half Price for the rest of the year!

folks, jut noticed the full product (not upgrade) pricing is 50% off for the Mac & iOS builds until the end of the year. Available on the App Store.
i'm not affiliated with the company but was just about to trade in my old Spreadsheet for this commercial solution, and for once, glad to have waited a few days!
Happy Christmas!

neilki, hold on a sec are you saying that all the guys who bought some time ago and paid the full price are screwed? Well, if that's the case than it's really a very poor marketing approach indeed. Normally when a new product is thrown on the market it starts off with the discount and then the price is increased. I surely hope they refund those buyers who paid the full price.

Power of PPRuNe, I wish.... lots of complaints on the Coradine site about having to pay for an upgrade, Coradine stating that they are stuck with charging due to using the APP STORE, so they were offering present users 50% off on certain dates, the next one was supposed to be 21st Dec. I guess that they expanded that to the rest of the festive season.....

So I went ahead and purchased version 6.0 for Mac and Ipad, the importation of data from 5.5 was seamless, and the sync with the Ipad was the same.

neilki, no intention to shoot the messenger whatsoever. I sincerely hope the company comes to it's senses and refunds those customers who paid the full price otherwise they surely will lose credibility. Firstly they said 50% on the 21st and only for upgrades now it's 50% discount for everybody, regardless. So what bout the technical difficulties? Very poorly handled pricing policy. There must be a refund policy in place in apple store, I take it. I'd press for a refund or a complete return of the product. In case the software developer proves to be unapproachable and doesn't show appreciation of old customers, walk away without looking back.

the way they are treating you folks I'd definitely look for other options. The grievance on their website is overwhelming and there seems no end to it. Someone proposed to switch to logbook pro application also available for iPad and iPhone. The prices seem to be reasonable too. I for once won't even bother going with them since such unpredictability is in place.

Its a brilliant product but i think they are getting greedy after having such great success! Although expensive i think its worth the full price cost but you should definitely not have to pay that price over and over for updates. If your going to charge a fee for updates then it has to be a very very small price. Ive just read the response by the founder of LTP to some of the complaints and its quite frankly very arrogant and after reading it Im not surprised that have the audacity to charge what they are for an update! As i said before I'm going to sit tight and see how this one play's out.

Updates are free - ver 6.01 didn't cost anything if one already had ver 6.0.

Upgrades - ver 5.x to ver 6.x costs.

Many software packages do the same. Roxio Toast, Parallels, Microsoft Office, iWork, iLife, etc, etc.

I agree it's a bit disappointing to have bought ver 3, 4, 5 and find that the discounted price is available to all, not just existing customers. Good luck for new customers I guess but I've still upgraded at half price.

My error in mixing updates and upgrades. I do mean charging of upgrades, as you say v5 to v6.

You guys complaining about the cost of logten pro, are you aware of what it costs to upgrade Microsoft office?

I transferred all data to version 6 from 5 easily, however there were a few little bugs such as all my visual approaches were missing. With regards the log book file Mutt I can't find one either? Strange as in v5 there was one in the documents folder? If you are manually entering flights in bulk, it doesn't refresh the total time as quick as v5, I found myself adding up hours in my paper log book again to try and find the error until I found this out! A pain in the butt when you are faced with logging thousands of hours of paper log on to the software. Other than that, highly recommended!

I've kept LTP5.x on both my iMac & iPad and will do so until all the bugs are sorted. I may even run both concurrently for a period.

Unfortunately you can't run v5 and v6 concurrently on the iPad as downloading v6 updates v5. I've had good experience with their customer service guys so if you have any problems just go to their website and let them know. V6 has a quick help link that will send an email for you and give you the option to attach your logbook file automatically (so you don't have to find it).
