KathrynGeels Thanks for your comment. I know from many other users, that they prefer the "one time payment" model, that Diarium offers and dislike (like myself) subscription-models where you have to pay continuously (and much more in the end). See "Day One", which is another journaling app (https://dayoneapp.com/premium/#day-one-premium-pricing): They charge $35 per year. If you used this app for 7 years (this is the duration that Diarium exists for and I am writing a journal myself now), this would sum up to $245. This is much more than double or triple the price of Diarium, even if you bought the app for all 4 platform that it is available on. Would you have opted for a $35 year platform-spanning yearly subscription rather than the ~$10/platform one-time-payment if you have had the option? If you would have (and other users would have as well) I will consider adding such an option.
Another reason that I tried to explain above is that implementing a subscription comes with many obstacles (users would have to create a user account & I would have to set up a server to track user accounts and licenses, this is very time consuming and costs money). Implementing such a subscription-model would easily take a full year of my time, in which I wouldn't be able to work on other features & improvements.
