yes - and what a dick-move to drop the price to $1 three days before making it free.
i hope people who bought it for one dollar can find it in their hearts to forgive the Devs.

1/2 serious.
It's not good business practice to piss off your customers- and for what? minimal gain !

They'll probably make more money giving the game away for free with IAP purchases, than selling it for $1. But I would bet anyone that bought it in the last 3 days and then saw it go free will NOT be making any IAP purchases

Not mad really, as I did buy it for .99 when it was dropped a couple days ago, but to then drop it to free a couple days later is pretty cheesy. First time I've seen a dev do this before.

it's happened to me a few times and i feel cheated each time.
almost all apps i have paid for have gone free after a certain amount of time, which is fine.
it's just when the sale precedes it going completely free that i think it is bad for business. and bad for the app store too, as it makes you feel that price drops are so random and unpredictable.
