Why is the iOS version paid, but Android is free?

@connectone Android users don’t spend money on apps. (in fact. Android users as a whole barely even *use* apps, or even browse the internet). Just look at ustwo’s report on Monument Valley: http://blog.monumentvalleygame.c...

@connectone @cenk "Android users"; bit of a generalisation there. I'm an Android user, and I'd be happy to spend money on a good app. My friends, too. Anyway; I get your point, but still

@connectone Like @cenk said, most of the Android users are not used to spend money on downloading apps from Google Play. And another concern we care about is that Android apps are easily cracked and distributed. If the app was pay-to-download, you would find the free version of the app everywhere. As the result, we set the price of the Android version to free but with limited features and with some ads. Users can unlock the whole features via in-app purchase. We find this is a good strategy especially in some chaotic markets like China (Google Play is not available in China. Instead, there are dozens of local app markets that sell your app for free without notifying the developers). I hope my explanation will help. And thank you very much for leaving comments here :)

I really love this app, been using it for years. Love the group sessions feature, really helps when using the app in revision sessions. Can't recommend it more if you need to get off your phone!

Pros:

- Works great and keeps you maintaining focus

- Works on both iPad and iPhone

- Awesome Chrome extension available

- Trees sync over devices

Cons:

- None!

Curious, where do they get their revenue to donate to tree planting organizations?

@joshuapinter Only premium users (i.e. iOS users and the Android users who pay for the premium version) can plant real trees in the app. And we donate a part of the revenue from those purchases to plant real trees with our tree-planting partner, Trees for the Future.
