Spent $$$ - stopped updating & changed program names

I purchased the Western US version years ago before I had an iPad. At the time, it was among the more expensive apps. It looked cool and I was excited to try it out boating. I was disappointed after discovering that the iPHONE SCREEN WAY TOO SMALL for practical use of the app. Additionally, the app also crawled when changing location and zooming in and out. *Those considering the iPhone version should keep this in mind.* I thought the program had great potential and assumed that updates would not be an issue for the price I paid, so I figured I would use it down the road when I had an iPad. (Some time passed where I also had intervening health issues that prevented me from boating.)

After the recent iOS 11 update, I was dismayed to discover the pricey app no longer worked. It appeared in the list of apps showing it needed an update but there was NO LINK in the App store. After digging some more, I noticed that Navionics had cleverly changed the app names and introduced a new pricing structure. Apparently, they changed the program years ago. Strange. I don’t recall receiving any notices that a change was being considered at the time of purchase, nor at the time the products were renamed, nor before the loss of functionality. It also seems kinda fishy that they didn’t keep the old name up in the App store with an explanation after the functionality was cut off or offer pre-existing users a special deal.

It appears they changed the graphics so the iPhone version looks terrible on the iPad and you have no choice but to pay alot more for the iPhone version. Given it is just depth lines, markers and such, I don’t see why they couldn’t design a scale the app like so many other developers have done. The bottom line is I got burned for foolishly trusting them and I caution others to think twice before shelling out money to a developer that has ditched previous users. Never know when they are going to take advantage of an iOS update to change the app design to force you to buy another full priced version.
