Do all versions have feature parity? Not sure which one to buy?

Post by ripper2020 » 12 Nov 2018, 21:32

So I've already decided I want to buy FileBot, however I'm not sure which version to buy. I'm running windows 10 laptop for Plex so I could either do the windows store version or buy a license and use the windows installer version. Also, If I buy the non store version I can also use my license on other OS's?

Lastly, is there any features or functional differences between the windows installer and windows store version? I don't want to buy one if it's going to be phased out. Thanks for any feedback!

Here's some general information:
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=6265

If you'd like to use FileBot on different operating systems, or Linux, then the direct purchase is highly recommended. If you know that you will only ever need the Windows 10 version, then the Microsoft Store purchase will work for you as well. The Mac App Store purchase is generally discouraged.

Due to Microsoft Store / Mac App Store rules, feature parity cannot be guaranteed. That being said, only the Mac App Store version is crippled to conform with Apple rules at this point in time. Best to go for the direct purchase and avoid the Microsoft Store / Mac App Store.
