Citrix Podio start paywall and lockdown of free accounts
  • Project management and collaboration app Podio just announced they will place a paywall on free accounts starting January 3.

    Formerly, the app had a limit on free "Organizations" of five people and some integration functionality.

    The new paywall will put a limit of 500 "items" on free orgs across any workspace or module, after what the accounts will enter in edit only mode and effectively locked out of data in 30 days.

    The rule will apply to new accounts from January 3 and existing accounts from January 19, as per email notice.

    Most fun thing is this companies stating that they literally can do anything.

    As damage they do to society with such moves is huge.

  • Sure, not using it anymore as for what I need it's really faster, simpler and more flexible to rely on simple office documents and use any collaborative office platform like google drive (or email btw).

    It had it's strengths tough, after you put some effort into it. As the comments section show, it's exactly what's happening, a lot of small teams or B teams put a lot of effort into the platform, don't have how to evaluate another solution in such time much less in that period of the year. The knife-on-the-throat style give money or lose your data isn't unpredictable but not the smoother move.
