Wow, talk about being a snob. They gave you a chance to test run a fully functional beta for FREE. If you like the app and the fact that it will continue to have lots of features added on, you buy it. If you don't like it for your purposes, then you're out a FREE app. Wow.
Not trying to flame or troll here, but it's asinine posts like this that are totally defeating of developers who are giving stuff out for free. Obviously some of us have been way too spoiled by the other developers who were even more generous to give full licenses out for free (like ShoveBox). Fact remains The Cosmic Machine was really nice to give us a chance to have a fully functional copy of their app (which is of course still technically in beta) for free. Get over yourselves if you simply won't support an app or developer because they don't give you the kitchen sink as well as their first born.
WalrusCP, first of all get off your high horse and back off with your offences. Offending someone first by calling them a snob and then saying 'i dont mean to troll' kinda doesnt go together in a paragraph.
if Macheist said that we are giving you the chance to test an app for a few days then that would have been ok. Instead they said we are giving you a full app for free or at least that's how it sounded. When we completed mission 3 etc we got free apps too but none of them were for a few days only. i am disappointed because we were not explained about the app when we got it.
From what i have heard a similar thing has happened in the past with the Speed Download app from Yazsoft (the developer locked the app to Mh members after a few days) and people including macheist were not happy about it.
If Cosmic Machine donated this app to MH to give to us and didnt explain to MH then it is their fault. If CM explained to MH what was going to happen then it is MH's fault. That's the way i see it.
Giving an app then after 15 days saying that MH users are not entitled to future updates is in my opinion a cheap shot and unethical advertising.
After all i thought that the whole idea behind MH was for developers donating FULL apps for free or giving them at a low cost in order to maximise developer's exposure to the public and hoping that customers will go back to those developers' websites to buy more/future apps from them.
