Thank you for trying out Icenium - I'm glad you are enjoying it. When we launched, we decided that we would introduce the world to Icenium by offering it completely free for the first six months of its commercial existence - that means it is completely free to you until May 2013. When we begin charging, the two options currently announced are $19/month for a pay-as-you-go option, and a discounted rate of $16/month on an annual commitment. We feel that both options are quite reasonable for commercial software.
We consider this our entry into the market, and we have plans to add a lot more to Icenium. As we do it is likely that we will add features and capabilities that are only attractive to, and needed by, professional developers, development teams, and enterprise IT development groups. We will likely offer some of these features as an add-on or higher price point product offering to insure that we can continue offering the entry level price point that we've announced.
Between now and May 2013 we will likely have additional announcements to make about new features that we add to Icenium and any additions to the product line-up. In the meantime, I am very open to feedback and ideas to ensure all our customers, professional, student and hobbyist, get what they need from Icenium.
