This was the reply on an App Store review: “You’re partially right. The iOS app is not free, it is part of the extended Premium subscription which includes other other additional features and server based capabilities. The desktop app can be used both free and with Premium features enabled. We’ve updated the description to clarify this further.”
As far as i remember, i got a message saying “your trial is about to expire” so that’s why i uninstalled and got Boxcryptor instead (though it’s purpose is different).
FYI – AxCrypt does not work like that at all. We do store some things our servers (specifically an AxCrypt-encrypted backup of your private key), but these are only for *convenience*. You can always decrypt your files if you have the file, AxCrypt software, and know the original password in effect of the time of encryption. You do not need any access to our servers, Internet or anything else.
I signed up for the premium trial period. What happens when it’s over and I do not want to subscribe since the free version is all I really need. Will it me me do that? Do I ave to re-isntal the software?
