Notability to let current users get everything, after all

It’s not easy switching business models, something Notability no doubt have learned the past few days. They went from being a paid app, to a freemium model, with a $15/year (but currently $12/year) subscription attached to it, and people got angry.

Well, Notability has had a change of heart, giving everyone who purchased the app prior to the change, well, everything.

Thank you for your support all these years. You will be able to continue using Notability as you do now. Everyone who purchased Notability prior to our switch to subscription on November 1st, 2021 will have lifetime access to all existing features and any content previously purchased in the app. This includes the core Notability experience that users know and love, including unlimited editing, iCloud sync, and any features or content that was previously purchased through the Notability Shop. Future features we develop may also be included, depending on their complexity and cost to maintain.

This sounds like a good way to handle the situation. Hopefully, this means that the drama’s over, for now, so that Notability can get back to its core business: Making a great note-takin app.
