So, Tower has now also switched to the subscription model, meaning that you cannot just purchase it once, now it wants to suck money out of you on the constant basis.

Tower switched to subscription

So we already have a text editor with subscription model, and now there is a subscription-based GUI for Git. What next? Ping utility? Volume control? Clock widget?

Needless to say that I bought the application just a couple of months before the switch.

It’s amazing how I get more and more signs pointing that I made a mistake having purchased this or that software. Sometimes it feels like I should’ve just kept stealing it via torrent-trackers.

Meanwhile, I deleted Tower (even though I can legally use the non-subscription version I have a license for) and installed SourceTree. And I recommend you to do the same.
