fruux pro rollout started

We've started rolling out pro accounts to our existing users a few days ago and so far we are pretty pleased with the performance of our billing system. There are still a few minor kinks we are working on right now, but all in all it was a solid rollout.

Interestingly fruux also starts getting popular in certain new places. We've for instance received a direct comment (okay it was a reply to an email from us, but anyway) from a top-level person at a certain company telling us that he already knew fruux and will check it out (Hi!). :-) Additionally we've even got a few sign-ups from people working at this other company with the fruit in the logo (probably caused by our third party promotion - if you are developing software, you should certainly try that, too. We read about it in the Mac Indie Marketing blog).

Now that the rollout of fruux pro started, we'll also start enforcing the free-account limits for existing users in the near future. Honestly we have no final decision yet, but our idea is to limit free accounts to just one "data class" (contacts OR calendars OR bookmarks) and just two Macs. Future support for iOS devices will also be limited to fruux pro accounts. But our current top priority is adding iOS support to pro accounts and not enforcing the limits of free accounts.
