Beyond the team software your company pays for, which software do you subscribe to—from web-based SaaS to mobile app subscriptions?
Anything you'd be the most sad to give up—or that you'd unsubscribe from the easiest?
I pay for a bunch of services, but I do it gladly because they make my life easier.
I pay for:
Probably forgot a few but those are the one I use most.
Creative Suite! I just locked in the student rate during my last month of being a grad student.
RubyMine and WebStorm hands down. Everything else I wouldn't mind giving up that much. Also pay for Wavebox and giving Hey.com a try for a year to see if they address the usability issues, as I like it otherwise. Paid for several apps when I was on a Mac, but have since moved back to Linux.
I personality pay for:
If my company didn't pay for them, I still would pay for:
I have many subscriptions on my list but one most important which i wouldnt unsubscribe is 1password. It keeps things secure, inbuilt 2FA authenticator, generate new passwords which I dont have to remember and watchtower feature which informs security breaches in the websites you use.
I think 1password is a no brainer decision.
From the top of my head, here are some services I love and pay for personally:
* IDEs like RubyMine & WebStorm
I would really be sad to give up 1Password, Spotify, HEY and Notion.
And currently considering mailbrew
I love the alias feature of Gsuite and after purchasing a domain ($12 / year) through Google Domains, set up 1 email account through Gsuite ($6 / month) and added several aliases that I use for different purposes (ie. signup@domain for junk accounts that just need an email to verify and newsletters@domain for newsletters I want to bunch into one label).
Gsuite overall gives you a lot more control over your email (through the admin panel) as opposed to a free Gmail account.
I'm personally paying for:
I'd likely have more subscriptions if I didn't have existing copies of one-time purchase software licenses, including for 1Password, Microsoft Office, and Creative Suite for Acrobat and Illustrator that I only occasionally use, and have older free accounts on paid apps that no longer have free plans, including G Suite for email on my domain.
Ranked from my satisfaction. Lower side does not mean I 'regret' them.
- iCloud Storage
- Pocket Casts
- Club MacStories
- Patreon (currently Onivim 2 & FSNotes )
- Feed Wrangler
- Kompas.id (my local newspapers' web version)
- Windscribe VPN
- Spotify & Netflix
I don't often watch movies, and my prefered songs for working already available offline, so I can easily unsubscribe them. I subscribed Windscribe VPN because previously Netflix was blocked in my country (unblocked just last week after the Minister of Finance forced 10% tax).
I like reading and often pay a one-time support for random web for their article, but I still have not convinced to subscribe for Medium.
I will find it difficult to unsubscribe from Fastmail and iCloud storage because I kinda lazy to migrate, and I have loads of data there.
Here is my list, although recently I went on a culling spree to reduce some of these subscriptions:
Several of these I pay for not for the premium features but to support the developers of products that I love. After writing this out, WOW I pay for a lot of subscription software. I suppose being an aspiring SaaS developer makes me more likely to pay for services that I like and get a lot of benefit out of.
