This article fails to mention that Simplify is not providing a free update to existing users.  Instead, everyone has to buy the new version to get new features.  None of the other apps I’ve purchased have operated like this and it shows Simplify has no appreciation for all the users that made their app into one of the best selling apps.

I find the Simplify update to be incredibly sleazy. It is shameful to require a paid upgrade for such simple GUI features. I got the app when it was free, but I have hardly used it. After this, however, I will delete it and leave them an appropriate review.
