Subscriptions provide access to all platforms (as we add them) and include basic server-intensive features, such as sharing presentations. Basic, because presentations can easily exceed 100MB, so we can’t offer unlimited server space.
Subscriptions for students
As a student, your status is temporary, and our license reflects that. We do not offer discounted license purchases.
Waiting for Black Friday
We don’t believe in discount days and limited time offers. Our app’s value doesn’t decrease because retailers want to boost sales. The best time to buy our app is now, as prices may increase as the app evolves.
Yes. One account covers one person, usable on different machines. Currently, it runs only on Macs. For additional accounts, explore our special solutions for businesses and organizations.
Purchase ≠ lifetime
Purchase is like buying software in a box. You get the current version, designed for a specific operating system and its version. Minor updates are free, while major updates may incur costs. The timeline for updates is uncertain. iA Writer experienced nearly a decade of free updates, so you might get lucky—or not.
Why charge per platform?
Purchase grants one app for one user on one platform. Currently, iA Presenter is only available for Mac. As we add platforms, you’ll need to purchase them separately. We develop each platform individually, and they’re sold separately—like software in boxes.
How we operate
We create unique apps for each platform, optimizing speed and utilizing each platform’s capabilities. We respect your privacy. We’re 100% bootstrapped. Our approach incurs development costs for every platform. Subscriptions cover multiple platforms and ongoing payments support our ability to continue costly development.
Application to the beta-testing program is limited to users already owning the app. Acceptance into the beta program is solely at the discretion of the iA team. In addition to experiencing new features ahead of others, beta-testers have the opportunity to shape our development roadmap through their feedback.
