Eh. The website is free, the app should be too imho.

Developing apps costs money. Any profit from selling the apps will likely help with the cost of running the service.(I have no connection with Mr Robot and I haven't bought the app, I'm just saying.)

Get over it. A one time payment of 2$ won't break your bank.I am amazed that there are no adds on the website already - running such a service is not exactly free.

Sorry my opinion isn't popular, but I stand by it. The fact remains, that the website is free and hosting a website costs far more than developing an app. Especially with how popular this particular one is.It's not about the $2. It just feels wrong to be charging for the app when the website remains free.

As a web application developer I can say without a doubt that development and support are much more costly than running a web server and maintenance. And the fact your not willing to spend 2$ to support the people that spend a lot of their free time and their own money making the mr. robot means your a horrible person.

Mr Robot was nice enough to provide the service for free on his website. He still hasn't even made money from it by putting ads on.He then coded for probably 6 months or so to bring the same functionality to the android and iOS platforms so that you could do it on your mobile device. If you don't have the spare cash around to buy him a coffee for his trouble, well, you can still use the FREE website and have the features there. I don't see why you would feel the need to sound like he turned around and made the website into a premium pay service after getting you addicted to it.As much as it's about convenience for me, I also believe in supporting developers when I can. Point of fact you COULD use the web browser on your mobile device to access the FREE website and have some of the same experience, He didn't block the site from portable devices. Though personally, I prefer the layout of the app on the iPhone to the web service.
