My Apple Developer Program Membership is due to expire on Feb 24 or so.
I needed it to release the GTZ app for ios last year.
I haven't updated the app in months (it seems fine/stable, no plans to work on it more at this point).
There aren't that many people using it.
I'm not sure it's worth the $99/year for the Apple dev membership.
If I don't renew, the app will still work for people who have it installed. But, I think it will get removed from the itunes store.
I don't think the Android store is like this. I think Android had a one time $25 developer fee, so it's all set.
I could just pay it and shut up, but I'm cheap and it annoys me that Apple wants this money every year.
I haven't ever used the app, personally, and I'm iOS. Unless you have a huge subset of people with pitchforks (which I doubt you would), I say let it go. I may go download it just to have it before it goes away though.

I think it's because we are old.

just hit the settings gear thing in the top right and select non mobile site. old layout bill marrs style goodness :D
(not that i dont appreciate all the hard work done on the new layout and mobile sites)
Good thing I saw this, I quick downloaded it on my other iOS devices. It's great for message notifications, especially when I go to Midwest Gaming Classic each year. I field messages via tapatalk for CAG and the app for here.
Bill, you could try filing a program fee waiver. Technically it's supposed to only happen for government, non-profits and education but I've heard of people still getting their fees waived in some isolated cases by vowing not to submit apps for monetary gain. It sometimes helps to show proof in the waiver form that the app is also in the google play store as competition.
Possibly but the next time it needs a update for an os release it would get pulled.

The custom users theme option is still there ? On old layout anyway

Loaded yours, it's very similar to Frosty Penguin. Your trade page and forum backgrounds are white and grayish color though, where as the default of FP is two different shades of low tone blue(easier on the eyes)
Also clicked links look brighter than I am used to.
> So I am not a frosty penguin
You're a Artic Penguin, I hear they are very loyal mates.

Oh man this is such a nice tangent, I'm gonna make a thread!

The inception of this topic is so incidental(like prob 1 in 100,000 chance). I was looking up good graphic sprites on the NES to convince @Gypsy that NES has pretty graphics
i do love the app, use it majority of time, shall we subscribe or make donation specifically for the apple fee support continuance?
new users wouldnt be able to get it though, or yes ?
understood, surprised app use is not more widespread, thanks for creating it.
