Yep.  But they did change their pricing page to reflect the new structure.  I looked at the reviews on Google Play on my Android phone and the recent comments were not pretty.  I am not sure where they hit a point of getting costs aligned with revenue, but I also have to wonder how easy it is to push past that when shedding customers to reduce costs.

Just received an email today saying that they have a new plan structure that includes a basic and a free plan.

Here is a link to their plan page:  https://www.bublup.com/premium-features/

I recently received another new email announcing additional affordable plans.  Not sure what to make of it, but it seems they may be having second thoughts on the changes they initially made to their plan pricing structure.

I liked Bublup, finding it a nice alternative to Evernote and/or MyMind. But the developer really bungled the switch to paid only plans. Two other things concern me. They don’t list updates on their website and the website still says copyright 2023.
