Awesome! Thanks

I use the Mac version regularly, and had the old iPhone only version (which got far less use and is apparently discontinued). I'm glad to grab the new universal option for free.

If you don't already have them, I'd recommend grabbing this while free and creating a wish list at appshopper to watch for the periodic 50% sale on the Mac version.

I heard on Reddit that this sale wasn't actually planned, some glitch on the App Store caused it to become free. See here: http://webcache.googleusercontent.co...-ios-8-launch/

The price should go back to $9.99 once iOS 8 comes out, so I guess grab it while you can?

That's what I've always used but I grabbed this one in case it's better. Have you tried both? I haven't had a chance to try it yet.

I think they were expecting the price drop to happen at the same time the update went live and were caught unawares when the price drop went live at the start of the day.

I personally suspect it's due to a misunderstanding on their part rather than an Apple bug as they have claimed, as I've never heard of the ability to link a price drop to an update.

Either way, it's all academic now. Version 5.0 is available now so anyone who downloads now will get the freemium version.
