FaceFlow Video Chat Adds Support for Q10 & Q5 – Now Costs $1.99

FaceFlow

FaceFlow has updated their BlackBerry 10 app this week and its a welcome one for QWERTY keyboard lovers. The app now supports the Q10 and Q5 along with the Z10 but no PlayBook support yet. Sadly the developer has decided to start charging for the app which is going to hurt the popularity of the service. Still the app is pretty solid and works well on BlackBerry 10.

Check out FaceFlow for $1.99 in BlackBerry World

  1. Sigh… why now….

    Its like… charging straight after having support for Q10..

  2. Bad move. At least he didn’t force us to pay to get the update.

    Oh well… It really showed a of promisse for a while.

  3. Just downloaded it, still free for me.

  4. Dany here, founder of FaceFlow.

    Diego – please give me your opinions oh why it’s a bad move.

    Keep this in mind:
    We’re not Microsoft, and with a free app I definitely can’t keep putting in money to constantly improve the app.
    Paid app will allow me to release updates more often, and actually provide a quality that makes paying $1.99 better than free.

    • Hi Danny,

      I don’t think there is anything wrong with it but it will make it much harder for the app to gain a meaningful user base. Some people are just cheap like that. I understand that you have to do what you need to keep the lights on. Its just a much harder job to acquire new users when there is an initial price tag.

      May I suggest possibly having tiers or a free version for an hour a month or something like that. Or follow the whatsapp model where the first month or year are free…

    • No problem for me, 1.99 is just 1.99… I just want it to be on every platform so I can use it with my fellows… One question, are you planning on supporting BB PlayBook?

  5. Thanks Ronnen,

    Although it looks like Blackberry removed the option to do it via App World, we may do something like that in the near future.

    At the end, our goal is to make it back free, once we have premium features added into the app.

    • Hi Danny. You can still do something like in app payment. That way you would have to pay $5/year to make calls over 5-10 minutes or something like that. Doesn’t need to be a subscription. You could track their subscription on your end.

  6. I like faceflow, have used it a few times and wouldn’t be averse to paying for it. Thanks Danny, and great suggestions Ronen. some people just naturally shy away from initial pay for app.
