A Lifetime License will give you MediaMonkey 5, 6, etc. for free. A current 4.x License will work with the betas of MediaMonkey 5 (which expire after a period), but won't work with MediaMonkey 5 once released.

Apparently I'm missing something.

I don't know of a single software where a license you buy doesn't last a lifetime for that version. All other softwares I know of that have a lifetime license basically mean that any future versions will be automatically included into that license, or to say it a different way; any lifetime license will run any version.

If you're now saying that a lifetime license means that you only get a BETA version of the next release then I honestly don't see what the extra money is for. It literally says:

"Lifetime License
Entitles you to all future upgrades. "


MM5 non-beta is a future upgrade. Therefore any lifetime license owner should be entitled to it.

The bigger point still stands: When? Anyone who bought MM4 lifetime or lower might think it looks bad that it's taking soooo long for you to release the next version which they in effect paid in advance for.

Again, stated differently:

Why - in your opinion - should anyone buy a lifetime license?

Hi,
lifetime license = no expire date You will be able to download and install license you have paid for with some added benefits like MM5 GOLD is working for any GOLD user from MM 2-4 and it will be till MM5 gets stable enough to gets its own license, which means that MM GOLD license you bought 2002 will register MM5 GOLD Beta. After that most users will get discounts on License upgrade (all past major versions had that), we find it fair.

Note: Over the years many many users asked me if they can buy full license without discount or buy another as a gift to someone, even they got discount coupon. Just to say THX for making and developing MMW.

I think that is a ways off
Judging from when the thread was started I'd say that's a safe assumption.

Just a thought for the makers of MediaMonkey:

When you advertise a lifetime license you kind'a should expect that users assume that you're going to release more than 1 version per decade, roughly. And I do mean that literally. It's not that $25 is a lot of money, it's more the feeling some people get when they can either spend X dollars, or twice that amount for lifetime upgrades, yet those upgrades don't happen for a decade. It's like an easy extra chunk of money from those who choose that option.

it just looks bad to some people.

But whatever.

Any word on the release of MediaMonkey 5, MM people? I'm feeling pain for having recently bought a Gold license and then reading this thread. What's happening?
Why do you feel pain? Anyway Beta is available and working quite well. there are a few bugs but nothing found that I know of that says there is any data corruption. You could install a portable version and continue to update your original as needed. That is what i have done and find that I spend almost all of my time in MM5.
I can't wait until the addons and skins start flowing. :)

It's been available as an Alpha release for a while from its own dedicated sub-forum.

Still waiting for MediaMonkey 5. Finger crossed! I'd be more than happy to re-buy Gold just as a 'thank you' even though I already have it. Hopefully it's just a matter of time.

Though on the other hand, it'll be really interesting to see what happens to the market with all the increased competition from streaming. I'll never give up my music collection, but I can see that this type of software might be becoming a niche tool considering how many people will never build up a library in the first place.

why not go for the lifetime option?

I can't give a better estimate, but we'd like to release it soon, roughly this summer.

Any news yet? And is it true it would be finally available for MAC?
