I understand the need to make money. I likewise appreciate that while you are primarily marketing the membership/account business model, that you still offer the standalone version/license. I purchased the upgrade to 7 for mac last year. Historically, I've kept purchasing standalone version upgrades and the pro features when you had those. Your product was worth it. I have been a standalone users for close to a decade. Your product was attractive and I have stuck with it for so long because of what i call it's "simple elegance" of 1Ps inherent security and the ability to keep everything local--and/or sync through a variety of options.
My disappointment is 1P has lost that elegance regarding syncing and local use options. Gone is wifi syncing--replaced by wlan which your own descriptions seems to suggest is an unreliable sync option--or more correctly I believe you say there are more reliable options. Yes I can use dropbox, but dropbox now requires $120 a year if I want to sync more than 3 devices. Of course I could open a 1P account but that would cost an additional $36 or $60 a year and like dropbox would not be local. I can sync to my NAS from my Macs, which is nice, but I then have no options for syncing to my NAS for iOS devices (i.e., there is no "folder" option) except for WLAN. It seems you are driving everyone to more and more subscriptions by limiting syncing options to dropbox ($120); 1P account ($36, $60 or more); or iCloud ($12 to $120 unless you use their free 5GB).
As good and creative as you have been over the years it seems you are missing an installed base (or a bigger market) by not offering local solutions for syncing-- especially those of us who want our data local and have the infrastructure (our own servers) to do so.
Please read this as feedback and a suggestion/request. Are there any plans to add a folder choice in the iOS version? All my iOS devices sync wonderfully with my server so I know they can do it reliably. I simply don't have that option in 1P that I can see. If I am missing something, please correct me! Honestly, without such an option, I'm researching what application besides 1P, has that flexibility, or something similar, as a password manager. Thank you.
