So what happens when a new appstore opens and one of the best photo / video sharing apps for mobile handsets wants a piece of the action = it turns payware. I attempted to use the service many times before, all unsuccessful it should be noted, installation problems, slow web page, no mobile site were all problems. So now it’s payware why should I even consider installing the app when there are many free alternatives to it?
It looks like Shozu is cashing in on the appstore hype, with the success of Apple’s Appstore with developers seemingly raking in the cash it seems Shozu has decided the same suite will probably apply to their app too. But with so many alternatives and them also being free, will it really be a success? What’s worse is that current users will get away without paying whilst new prospective users will have to reach for their wallet.
Going forward, we will begin charging for the mobile application. If you’re already a ShoZu user, you’ll be happy to know that there’s no charge to continue using it. If you’re new to ShoZu’s mobile application, then there is a one-time charge to download the application and join thousands of happy ShoZu users.
As a possible users who tried signing up for the service but couldn’t actually get it to install properly, I doubt I’ll even give this app a look now (as well all know I like my freeware alternatives) there are many other solutions to this, most notable Pixelpipes especially with Share Online integration – which is free, can send to various popular services and is easy to setup.
