I used to think that it was a myth, people being ridiculous, until it happened to me.
That’s where I’m at right now, I’ll write more on my setup this weekend, but I have gotten rid of all my subscription apps, except one workout one I’m giving a shot for a month.
I don’t mind paying for a subscription that adds value to me but I have found that there are some great stock, free or one time purchase only apps out there that can do the same things as what I have been doing.
Now I’m not saying I’m against subscriptions, app developers need to make money as well, and I never mind supporting them, but it has just gotten overwhelming to check my bank statement and keep seeing I’m being charged for so many subscriptions a month.
I much prefer the one time purchase or even a lifetime sub option where I can pay once and done, I know those aren’t always practical for developers but they are practical for me.
I will be staying this way for the foreseeable future and I’ll write something longer this weekend about how and what apps I’m using and what I switched.
