    For a company with a one time download fee (0.99) as their only source of revenue, this is an amazing exit. Although i could swear they use to charge $1.99 to download the app prior to their current try/buy model.

      They have a subscription model in multiple countries.

      Definitely a great way out, I don't think they're doing very well now that there're so many other competitors who offers more functions. Yes they do have a lot of users, but a lot of people are switching over to other apps.
