I love how Affinity has promised to keep their desktop publishing application products single-purchase forever -- it has me truly enthusiastic to someday get off the Adobe train for good. That said, I wonder how the numbers work out, and I suspect it's a tight margin to make any profit selling these apps at the affordable price that they do.


Would it be ridiculous to implement a Tip function (preferably on the site and not directly in the apps, to be tasteful) that allowed Affinity users to send some money to the development team when feeling generous? I'd tip now and then -- I'd consider it a sort of volunteer subscription, rather than the top-down authoritarian malarkey of Adobe.


Just an idea.

Remember that they do not promise you to get ALL versions in the future... You only get the specific version line. Like currently you will pay for 1.x line, but when they finally move to the 2.x line, you need to buy the upgrade or new license. 


The tipping (donation really) is something Affinity could consider, but I would recommend you to do it in better way. Buy the license key and share it to friend or someone else. You will this way get the send money to Affinity + you likely get someone happy with great software and this way spread the userbase that will generate more users (and more money to Affinity!).
