Yes, I think that’s a generally recognised problem with Roam.

But to be fair Roam never claimed to have exited the beta stage. My understanding is that they turned on the payment option to be able to service the huge number of beta users who wanted to sign up.

So now they are in this weird situation that paying customers who who were happy to pay to get access to the beta are now demanding a non-beta product.

There is probably some kind of a lesson there about how to manage the beta stage.

On the other hand it’s a nice problem to have for a software developer to have thousands of people begging you to take their money for an unfinished product…
