Indeed. This seems intentionally deceitful and that's not someone you should do business with at all.
I wonder what their reply would be, however. It's the same reason I won't give Sophiestication anymore business either.
I don't fault AppSumo so much as the developer themselves. I think they just need to really work on clarifying how they are going to distribute the app from this point forward.
Correct. I've rechecked the versions and it gets a bit confusing.
The version from that link is version 1.2.1 (build 767.24).
The version from the Mac App Store is 1.2.1 (build 767.22).
On the Sparrow website, when I viewed it the other day, their FAQ page listed the version as 1.2.1 (build 767.28), which is what prompted me to inquire about the version mismatch.
Today however, the same FAQ shows the version as 1.2.1 (build 767.22).
It's possible that they just had a typo on their website, but I don't know what to believe.
In any case, they definitely need to get that sorted out...
