I realized at the beginning that this app was too good for everything to be available for free indefinitely, but the pricing needs to be reasonable and affordable. Please change this!
We understand your concerns about pricing. It is a necessary step we have taken in order for us to continue building high quality educational apps for your kids.
With a monthly subscription, the child has access to the full Agnitus program, advancing through the curriculum at their own pace and skill level.
Please let us know what you would consider a fair monthly price? We would appreciate your feedback.

The price point is ridiculous. I am boycotting this company's products from today. There are other better companies and better prices.
One time purchase is a much better deal than monthly subscription.

I would love to pay something for this brilliant app but the monthly fee is too much. I would suggest giving us the option to buy one-off games or make a one off purchase. I would pay as much as two dollars to three dollars a month, but would be willing to pay as much as $45 for a one time buy out... Also give us the option of registering for less and forfeiting monthly report cards or some of the other features.
Please also consider some of us parents dont always have steady income so committing to a high monthly fee such as this is very difficult.
I really thank and commend you all though, its an amazing app and we see why you would want to charge a higher fee but what you are asking for for an online app is unreasonable. Isn't it better to have more parents playing less than a few paying alot?
this pricing model is a really bad idea. the price is rediculously high for just an app. you're missing out the majority of the users. you'd suggest you make it affordable to increase popularity to the max, and find a way to sell supplemental materials such as workbook, posters, etc. to go along with the app. can sell addons as you develope more. look at what angry bird did.
bring your app to the mass before another great app comes along for cheaper, it's only a matter of time.
My son adores Agnitus! However, we won't be using it anymore due to the expense. I would be willing to pay a one-time fee of $15-20 for the app, or even $2-3 per month, but I can't justify the current charge. He can take a music or physical activity class for about that much.
I think if Agnitus had started charging a small amount and built up to a larger fee gradually, it would be more accepted. But to go from zero to $150+ per year is quite a shock to consumers.

I'd happy pay what I pay for Lumosity for myself:
$6.50/month full price, but an email special reminded me I could get it for $4.33/ month for a year, so I did. Much better deal than the $14.95 month-by-month.
A lifetime option would be great, too.
I agree that I would pay 20, 30, even 50 dollars to buy the game outright, but $150+ a year is too much. If it had to be subscription, then I would pay 2 or 3 dollars a month tops.

I'd pay $10/ month without batting an eyelash, but in NZD, Agnitus is nearly twice that (18.99). Much more than $10/month and I'd have to consider it carefully.
There's also not a whole lot of savings to be made with a three month subscription. A bigger discount for the longer sub times would be enticing and keep us "in." As it stands, we bought a month and will really have to see after that. Kids' dad said $149/ year is *just too much*.
What about an unlock option? Pay to unlock Multi-kid? Pay to unlock use from desktop? Pay to unlock various activities?
Carol Jordan commented
I agree. People wouldn't mind paying maybe, 2 to 3 dollars per month but your prices are ridiculous. And even though I can afford it, I refuse to pay that much. Look at your prices compared to other learning games. Too bad. My grandkid s love it but.......
Subscription is a really bad idea! Really expensive! I will buy other apps that doesn't "expire". Not impress!!
I know you want to have a decent revenue stream, but $150 for a year is too expensive.
I can't justify that purchase.
Without seeing what your projected revenue model and user numbers are its hard to pick figures.
But I would be more comfortable with a $20 price tag.
