How can a school buy your app?

Hi

You have created a truly great app. Thank you very much for that. I appreciate the good work.

I am the responsible for the ICT in our school here in Switzerland and we would really like to use the full version of your App in our school.

We usually buy between 30 and 400 licenses.

However we must use an MDM as well as Apple School Manager and the Volume Purchase Program. For reasons of technical limitations by Apple, we can only buy full apps. It is technically not possible to buy and distribute in-app purchases. So we can NOT buy your app, because you have only in-app purchases.

Furthermore teachers and students are logged in to their iPads with a special managed Apple ID created from Apple School Manager and this does not allow for individual App Store use or in App purchase either.

I write this as a suggestion for you to release a „pro“ version of your app with all inApp purchases included. Otherwise you are excluding schools as customers. As a matter of fact, I don’t know any school here in Switzerland who is using iPads, but not the Volume Purchase Program and or Apple School Manager. Those are all lost clients for you.

Best wishes

Raphael

Hi Raphael,

Thank you for your feedback and kind compliments. We always get excited when we hear that schools are using FlipaClip to teach! It makes us want to work even harder. In regards to volume purchase program we do not provide that at the moment but we are looking into it. We hope to be able to provide a FlipaClip for Education only version. I will keep you posted here. Thank you!
