To whoever is thinking about pulling the trigger on purchasing a premium membership, or purchasing a life membership, I can only emphatically say "do it." I've been here lurking for over a decade and a website name change.
This community and the admin and moderators who take care of it are still, despite ups and downs, always passionate about what they do. While I don't use it as often as I did in the initial days of Android (when it was the real "Wild West" for apps that had been modified), there are still apps that I download from Mobilism which I can't find anywhere else with ADDED features.
This crew often works for free, and so even 25 USD goes a long way in helping them maintain the forum and pays them for their tireless work in providing a unique service which allows people like myself to discover new applications and 90% of the time actually go purchase said application. Plus, the fact that you get the ability to download from within the Mobilism app itself? Phenomenal.
I sincerely urge anyone who is thinking about getting premium, and especially the lifetime premium, to do so for the features, but really, to support the effort and time this entire team dedicates to maintaining this community and their app.
