Continuing the discussion from FoldingText 2.0 release (almost):
FoldingText 2.0 is a free upgrade for all FoldingText 1.x users.
FoldingText 1.x was only sold through the Mac App Store. When version 2.0 is approved by Apple the update should be marked as free and you can just update.
The upgrade situation is slightly complicated by the fact that FoldingText 2.0 will also be sold through www.paddle.com. Generally exact same app with exact same update schedule. But a few differences:
Paddle version won’t be Sandboxed (should work on 10.7 as result)
Paddle version won’t support iCloud (that’s only for Mac App Store apps)
Different application identifier… this is so people who download demo from paddle can purchase from Mac App Store without having to fully delete demo. Also I’m not sure how having two apps with same id (but one sandboxed and one not) will behave. So just being safe and using different app id.
It’s my intention that if you purchase the Mac App Store version then you can download and use the full paddle version without having to purchase a new license. This works by:
Run the Mac App Store version of FoldingText on your computer once.
It should copy its receipt file to a path similar to this: (this is from my computer) )
The paddle version of the app will look for that receipt and validate against it on launch. If it’s valid then it should run without asking you to purchase a license.
If it’s not working right lets use this thread to figure out the problem.
