Where is the in-app purchase?

There are a lot of menu items like “preferences”, “customize toolbar”, etc. which are greyed out. I believe these might be options for the paid version. But I cannot for the love of god figure out how to make the in-app purchase.

I loved the previous pre-yosemite version of the app and I was excited about the yosemite version. I wanted to buy the pro version. But there is no obvious way to make the purchase in-app, even though the developers description above says you can buy the pro version in-app. I tried clicking on the greyed out options hoping for a pop-up to trigger a purchase for the pro, but it does nothing. The support web page in the app is absolutely good for nothing. The developer’s web-site does not even list the app in his website!! This is really baffling. There is a "contact us" link in the developers website however which looks dud. I have mailed him twice, but no reply yet. Ideally, when a customer contacts a developer and asks him how to make a purchase, the reply would be instantaneous, since it brings business to him. But this guy seems to just not care. I have not received help from his website whatsoever.

Developers: The pre-yosemite version was very good and hence I am taking all this trouble. If you give proper instructions to use your app, I would change the rating to five which it did deserve previously. Please be more responsive and have a good support process.

Sad Trombone

I bought the original Tuba last year. It crashed regularly when invoking full screen, and just plain doesn’t work on Yosemite. Fast forward a few months, and the developers have discontinued the old version and want more money for the “Pro” version of this update.

This new version is alright, but still has bugs. And if the past is any indication, the developers will be asking "Pro” purchasers to dole out some more cash in the near future. Caveat emptor, fellow App Store customers.


Everytime I try to play a video, I keep getting this error message. (The operation couldn’t be completed. Error XCDYouTubeVideoErrorDomain error -2). Does anyone know to fix this error? I wouldnt mind paying for the pro but How do you pay for it? and will this error be fixed?

this app. deserves a 5 Star raring but until the error is fixed or the dev. makes it easy to upgrade to the paid version I’m giving it a 1 STAR.
