Ratings and Reviews

Description is false. Not free to view


I tried to view an MPP project but was told I need a valid subscription. The description specifically says “No subscription required to open and view projects”

Developer Response

Due to a technical issue we see your review just now. Please accept our apologies. You mean on the AppStore description? Thank you very much for reporting this. We should change it. Merlin Project Express can open Merlin Project or Merlin Project Express files even without a valid subscription. MPP files need to be imported and this is not a feature of the app when running with out a subscription.

You Only get 14 day free trial with Annual Subscription

I would have paid for annual subscription if it came with the 30 trial period, as it states iin the app store.

Developer Response

Oh thank you for reporting this. The description in the app store will be changed to reflect the correct amount of free trial included.
