Software Updates included for one year, subsequent updates require an update license
When you buy Hook (Essentials or Pro), you can use the app for as long as you want. However, we cannot provide free updates for life. So, each paid license of Hook includes 12 months of updates. If you install a version of Hook that was released after your free update period has ended, Hook will ask you to downgrade to an older version or purchase an update license to get another year of updates.
Update licenses (renewals): When your initial 12-month license expires, you can purchase an update license for 40% less than the original license price advertised above (or cheaper — the price is not final). That gives you access to another 12 months of software updates and your original level of technical support.
Upgrading from Essentials to Pro
You will be able to upgrade from Essentials to Pro. Contact us and we will send you a link from which you can buy Pro at a discounted rate. The discount will depend on the age of your license.
Lite mode (free, kicks in after Trial expires)
When the Hook trial expires, Hook downgrades automatically to Hook Lite. In Lite mode, users can generate shareable email links (
hook://email), but not links to other types of items (such as files or tasks). Lite mode users can use (click on and activate) as many links as they like. They can use links they previously created and any links received from others. Most other features are disabled in Hook Lite.
- The duration and features of the Beta version, and of the Trial mode may be varied unilaterally by CogSci Apps Corp.
- The specific features in each mode, and prices, may vary before Hook is actually for sale.** (Hook is currently in public beta).
- Prices and other terms are not yet final. We welcome feedback!
