    I thought the winner in the past went on sale for %70 off. That would be closer to $550 and pretty hard to pass up

  • Re: Can some Accordance users help me?

    [quote user="Andrew116"]The fact that you can see some results load while others are yet to load speaks to some lag that must be more than 0.1 second. But it’s not just the time to do the search once you have pressed the button, it is also the speed of the contextual menu that allows you to get to the point of pressing the button. Plus the general

For example, on Logos, a simple Hebrew morph search in BHS (VbP3M) is one the order of 0.1 sec to return over 1000 results. So hardly sluggish. Logos also does the right

    [quote user="James Hudson"] DropBox released statistics today that show only 2.2% of their users pay to subscribe (https://www.cnet.com/news/dropbox-files-for-ipo) I find it fascinating that that is almost exactly the same percentage as the Logos Now experiment showed.

    [quote user="abondservant"] I don't need any more books. I don't think I want any of the new features.[/quote] This is why FL needs to raise prices. Read Bob's explanaton and it is pretty clear that those who have bought (past tense) lots of books are not buying many more books. So they no longer add much to the revenue stream, BUT they "demand" more

What is changing is that the FL wants more income to grow. That is different. That is why I agree with your assessment that they should just provide a free engine and then charge for additional features. Part

  • Re: Faithlife Connect - Defining the issues & looking for a path forward

    Isn't the solution to all of this simply having a system consisting of buying content with some base of functionality and then subscribing/renting the software at a sensible price? All FL really needs to do is add a Features Only level in FLC for something between 100/yr and 200/yr that makes sense for everyone and lay out their cards that they need
