    Suppose I subscribe to Telerik Platform and produce an app that doesn't use any Telerik backend services. Then suppose that my customers install the app on their phone. Then suppose I allow my subscription to Telerik Platform to expire. What happens to the app on my customers' phones? Does it continue to run?

    Hello Kevin,

    An app that you have built in Telerik Platform and published to users, which does not use Telerik live services while running will keep working on devices even after your license expires.

    Assuming the same app (no backend services and published in the Apple Store). If I have it saved in Visual Studio, can I make changes in the code or the HTML and submit them to the store without renewing my subscription (the old fashioned way)?

    What are "Telerik Live Services"?

    I have just begun a free trial. Will my Visual Studio "appBuilder" selection disappear when the trial ends? Will the apps that have been saved in Visual Studio change (even if live services are used)? If I have submitted an app to the stores and my subscription expires, what will users see if live services are involved -- will the app crash?

    Hello Jim,

    When your subscription expires, you won't be able to load your project in the Visual Studio extension for AppBuilder. Therefore, you won't be able to build the project with your changes. However, any projects that you keep locally on your computer will still be there, so you can access your code if you need to.

    If you aren't using any of the Telerik Platform services like Analytics, Feedback, Backend Services, your app will keep functioning after your subscription expires.

    If I have built the app using Platform and I am using UI components as part of Telerik's UI for NativeScript, would I be able to use those components after my subscriptions expires? Let's say I would update my project code and keep using the UI components, would it work? Thanks

    Hello Sanjay,

    The UI for NativeScript suite will be released in the end of March and it will have the same licensing as the other Telerik UI suites. So, if you buy a license and it expires, you will still be able to use the components but won't have access to updates and dedicated support.
