DEVONthink To Go and the Volume Purchase Program

Since we released DEVONthink To Go 3.0 we received the question about how to buy the app as a student or educator. In the world of the App Store this is only possible via the Volume Purchase Program (VPP) and if the school or institute has joined.

However, the VPP does not allow in-app purchases which makes it impossible now to buy DEVONthink To Go at all. Some companies solve this by publishing a completely separate app with upfront payment like in the old days so that it can be purchased via the VPP.

Therefore we would like to know if you are a member of the VPP and if buying via the VPP would be (or would have been) an option for you.

  • I’m a member and would prefer to purchase via the VPP
  • I’m a member but would still go for the subscription outside the VPP
  • I’m a member but actually don’t really care
  • I’m NOT a member of the VPP but wanted to click something here anyway

I am VPP member (administrating 3k iPads for schools). To be honest, DEVONthink isn’t very interesting in this scenario because of lack of macs (to get the full potential of DTG).
Apart from this I’d love to see more devs making VPP purchases available instead of IAP.
So yeah…great idea!
