Junecloud announced this week that its popular package tracking application Deliveries will switch to a paid subscription model on September 30. The subscription will unlock all features of the app on iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch, and the pricing will be set at 99 cents per month or $4.99 per year through the App Store.
So far, the delivery is a one-time purchase, and the price of the app for both iOS and macOS is $4.99. Junecloud said that users who have purchased the application can continue to use most features without a subscription, and they will also receive a free subscription for up to 18 months from the date of purchase. Users who purchased the app more than 18 months ago will get a free subscription before February 1, 2021.
Specifically, existing users will still be able to add new deliveries to the app and synchronize with iCloud. However, a subscription is now required to sync with Junecloud, which allows users to add delivery to the app by forwarding the corresponding email. Any new features added to “Delivery” in the future will also require a subscription.
Junecloud hopes that the shift to a subscription model will attract more customers:
