Dear Blynk Team,
I’m an enthusiastic user and, as a lot of Blynkers, I’m ready to pay to support your hard and valuable job.
But I strongly believe that the payment method that you have implemented is not the best, as already declared by other people of this community.
When I realize the user interface of a new project, I seek the optimal solution through a process of successive approximation, choosing a combination of widget and looking at the overall aspect, then I change them not one but one thousand times and then I call a peer review and change again the U.I. And, when the critical design review occurs, anything could change again.
With your payment system, instead, this extensive use of your product will be totally discouraged
if only 80% of Energy is returned back on widget removal. People will realize just a prototype, working
but ugly, because beauty and perfection will be object of money.
Imagine a Blynker that will show such a “working but ugly” prototype to a friend or a to teacher
or to another maker. The review of the project and, unavoidably, of your creature could be not very positive.
At the end of my message I would ask you to consider, in parallel to energy system, another type of
payment based on a policy of annual or monthly - all inclusive - fixed fee. It could be very appreciated by all the Blynkers that, like me, love to realize “working and beautiful” projects.
Best regards, Giancarlo
