I agree. I live in the country and often lose my internet connection.Julia.

PS: Thanks for all your recent improvements. The app is becoming very user friendly.

Yes, this weekend I started thinking on a way to offer offline mode as soon as possible. But it won't come before a few months unfortunately. Publishing iphone and ipad apps are more important right now.

The app is quite expensive considering the fact that it does not offer offline possibility...

Jelena,

I have pushed a new version that allows you to use some features offline.

- You can use the weekplan and the parking lot view.
- You can add new tasks
- You can navigate in the future and the past to add tasks but you won't see any tasks that you haven't loaded before.

Let me know if you find this useful!

I indeed find it very useful. And it is a great improvement. It is also very pleasing that you listen to the clients. Moreover, I do understand that this idea requires to be paid for. Because it is clever and one of a kind (so far).

However, I am still not ready to pay the amount of money for the app that is requested. My argumentation is simple. It is not the only application I use.

I use note-keeping application. They expect me to pay them 5euro a month . They say: "It's not much"; and it is true. I also use Social Media Management Application that asks me to pay 10euro. It is also not much for the application, considering that I pay as a single person, not as a corporate-level client. And then one more and one more... My costs already go far beyond my monthly health care costs...

Just because every one of these businesses think that: "It is just one application you pay for and it is not that much". Now Weekplan asks me 19$ (!!!) a month or 84$ for a whole year above all that. It is explained as being "not much" (again) for the advantages that I will have. And I agree that it is not much, but only in case we will forget that this is not the ONLY application we pay for every month.

 It does not make sense for me and for a lot of people with the same level of online application use.

To sum up: Weekplan's price is still high for a task management application (ONLY); at least because it is not the only application each client has to pay for and at least because it is still just a task management application.

And it is just a feedback plus an idea... that maybe...Only maybe... it is feasible to sell it for less and get 6-zero amount of clients than sell it for this price and get 4-zeros amount of clients (of course if my guess is right, it could be less or more).

Jelena,

First I would like to thank you for taking the time to share your insightful ideas. This kind of comment really helps me reflect on what I am doing with weekplan.

The pricing strategy is a difficult topic. I have experimented in the past with a lower price point and the overall revenue was impacted negatively because of it. Since I raised the prices, the revenue is growing. 

Because I don't have a team working with me, I also prefer having fewer customers to support.
As I grow the team and polish the application, I will also be able to broaden my target audience and handle more support tickets.

But I have heard what you are saying, I will offer a sale for weekplan's subscription to experiment on the pricing once again.

Thanks.

I totally agree with your argumentation. Thank you for your answer.

Aymerci, any evolution? I am testing WeekPlan and because of its really really poor Android App and not being able see a quadrant per week or month, I am just about to forget it.

Yes, the Android app will work offline (and the iphone app works offline already) but I have decided not to support offline for the web version as the percentage of people being offline while on their desktop computer is rather small in comparison to the effort it would take to make WeekPlan offline friendly.
