Some developers asked us if they need a Pro Appcelerator account to test the modules we have been posting. All of our modules are based on the HyperLoop technology and that means yes, in order to run them you will need a Pro account.
You may still ask yourself “Should I upgrade my account and pay $99 dollars a month? Is it really worth upgrading it?”, but there’s no right answer for this question and we think it really depends on what do you want to achieve in your business. If you need customised components, frameworks or SDKs that are not available in classic titanium modules then you most certainly need to buy a Pro account.
It takes way more time (and money) to build a classic titanium module than to use HyperLoop and get the same benefits, and that’s what you should ask yourself for your next project: am I really saving money by sticking to an indie account?
If you’re still unsure, this may motivate you: last week Appcelerator surprised long-term Indie developers with a promotional code that gives you a discount of 40% in the purchase of a Pro Account.
This is the best opportunity to start using HyperLoop! You might wanna check your inbox and see if you’re eligible for this discount.
