Hi!

I find the buyout a little too "inexpensive" - could you maybe implement an option for each user to kind of lock in a higher amount that he would have to pay for release?

I did do this for one person in an earlier version as they wanted it to be over $200 so I set up the app that would show keys that cost $200 to his user_id only which I was originally ok with, but the problem with this is that it shows on the app store listing page that it has in app purchases ranging from $3 - $200 which would seem a little scary/greedy to anyone that views the page before they've downloaded the app. They never bought a key for that price, they just wanted to make it less tempting to unlock early.

This was why I added the option to turn off the keys on each lock when they are set up.

If more people want me to add a second set of keys for a dearer price and give ideas what would be a good price then I can probably add it in. It would have to be set up in a way that once you choose to accept the higher price keys the lower price ones will not be available again, not without uninstalling the app and re-installing as a new user. What would be a good price for you to reduce the temptation but still affordable should you need to unlock in an emergency?

Obviously I'd love it if everyone paid $200 to unlock but I'm not greedy :)

Edit: Rather than having the app locked down to one price once you've chosen I can introduce different color keys i.e. bronze, silver, and gold, and you choose which color the lock needs when setting up the lock so you can have one lock with a bronze one that's the current price and the next lock with a gold one (which would be dearer) if you wanted.

Hey! That color code system sounds like an awesome idea. Rising prices from the current price up to maybe a 100 - that way you would have to think hard about buying it but would have a way out in case of a real emergency.

Something like?

Bronze = $5 or 6 dollars (the current price) depending on exchange rate.
Silver = $25
Gold = $100

I wouldn't really want more than 3 colours so not sure the best price for silver based on the highest price you've asked for. I can just replace the buy 2 and buy 5 keys with the new ones.

I like that bronze/silver/Good idea, or if the programming was any easier, could you perhaps just make a setup option saying multiple keys required to unlock. You could say 1 as normal, up to a max of say 50 in increments of 5 on a slider, that way a $5 key multiplied by 50 equals a $250 unlock, definitely a deterrent :-) just my 2 cents.

Thanks for the suggestion Naughtia, that actually sounds better! I can leave the keys as is then. And it doesn't look like the app has really overpriced in app purchases when viewed on the play store.

I can see one draw back though. At the moment the maximum number of keys you can purchase is 5 at one time so if you needed 50 keys to unlock early you'd have to make 10 purchases of 5 so it would require some extra bundle of keys to be added. Not a biggie.

A slider for the number of keys needed to unlock early will be in the next release. You can pick from 1 to 50 keys and can purchase 1, 2, 5, 10, 25 and 50 keys. If you set the lock to require 8 keys you will need to purchase either 10, or 1, 2, and 5 etc. any keys left over will be saved.

Thanks Donfelice. The slider for the number of keys needed is in the beta version that's available on the store now. If you haven't already and want to check it out you can sign up for the beta version via this link: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/co.uk.kevincross.chastikey

Otherwise I'll make it live for everyone next week if there's no major problems with the update

Thanks,
Kevin

Nice! That's exactly what I was thinking. Super clean implementation KevinCross, looks like it was always there :-) I'm running a test lock now and it so far works very smoothly. Thanks for all you do!

Can you send a screenie of the typo or let me know what the typo is so that I can search for an exact match in the script please?
