[prMac.com] Washington, District Of Columbia - Tales2Go is pleased to announce today it is introducing $9.99 monthly recurring pricing as part of its version 3.0 release. Now subscribers will have the option to pay for Tales2Go as they go, and not have to purchase a full year subscription in advance.
"We are excited to take advantage of Apple's monthly recurring pricing feature, since we've known from the start that certain users prefer paying month by month." said William Weil, Co-Founder and CEO of Tales2Go. "Our subscribers will still have the option of buying a year in advance and saving ($99.99 annual price), or turning on and off a monthly recurring plan as needed."
Other enhancements and upgrades in version 3.0, include a log-in screen which makes it easier for users to manage multiple users on one account and a free stories section, which allows users to listen to a limited number of free stories from storytellers such as Bill Harley, Odds Bodkin and Regi Carpenter after their trial or subscription has expired. Tales2Go can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store, and starts with a 30-day free period.
