Why do I need a subscription?
Turnip is free for basic use. You can track your time and view your history for the last week, completely free of charge, as long as you’d like.
If you’d like to connect your accounts or see more history, you’ll need to purchase a paid plan.
But why a subscription model?
We’re a small, two-person team. Subscriptions allows us to build a predictable income, so we can devote more of our time to fixing bugs and building new features.
Subscription pricing allows us to pay for ongoing costs and services related to running Turnip, like the servers we maintain to connect with integrations, sync your data, and store backups.
Upgrade pricing, where users pay for a new major version of software every few years, prioritises developing shiny new features over improving existing ones. Nobody is interesting in upgrading software just for some bugfixes and refinements, but that’s often just what an app needs. (If you remember what Photoshop was like just before Adobe switched over to a subscription model, you might know what we mean.)
Do you offer a lifetime license?
At the moment, we don’t, but we’re open to considering it if the argument is compelling enough. Contact us!
What happens when my subscription expires?
Cancelling your subscription doesn’t remove time slips from your integration or delete any data. If your subscription expires, you can still use Turnip’s free features, and you can reactivate your subscription at any time to restore access to your integrations and time slip history.
