I also said that it’s value for money! I’ll never argue that point if anything Bubble is too cheap!
But withholding features from your earliest adopter plans creates a lack in confidence not only for existing users but more importantly for new users looking to adopt the platform.
I am a massive Bubble advocate but the biggest push back that I get when I try to encourage users to the platform is not the price, the value or the learning curve… it’s the fear of being trapped on a platform where they have zero control over potential future costs!
Forcing users to increase their app costs (regardless of whether it’s $1 or $1,000) will further heighten that apprehension and as such reduce adoption to the platform.
One of Bubbles best policies is that if it goes out of business it will open source which allows us all to build on the platform with confidence. Not that I can see bubble ever going out of business (I’d buy shares if I could!).
The second thing that would make a massive difference is a similar statement surrounding price and legacy users! Give people an incentive to build earlier rather than later!
For the record I have no issues with the later plans having increased capacity etc but restricting features from legacy plans is quite frankly short sighted because even if it reduces confidence in the platform by 1% then whoever made that decision is not doing this wonderful and amazing platform justice!
