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.
