Hi Palmer, I don’t find the charge unreasonable, it is after all a one off and not recurring.
My reasons are these:-
a) The Lab software, both PC and Smartphone have to be funded from somewhere, I don’t think that there is enough fat in the SCiO device cost for that.
b) Some developers will hope to make money by charging for their App, so CP will get no direct benefit – merely a reflected glow of any success.
c) Other developers are making private Apps for their own businesses, and may be expected to support the Support.
best … Roger
