Sideload.me officially turns one year old today. This means that for some it’s almost time for subscriptions to be renewed. In this post, we’ll be going over everything you need to know about renewals.
After you purchase a subscription, you are able to sign apps and have access to many other features for up to one year from your original purchase date. You can always view when your subscription will expire in the Profile page. After the expiration deadline has passed, users will still be able to use downloaded apps until the certificate expires. The website will let users know that their subscription is expired in all app pages.
You might be asking, what is the difference between certificate expiration and account expiration?
Account Expiration: When you first purchase a subscription, you will no longer be able to sideload apps after one year passes until you renew.
Certificate Expiration: This is independent from account expiration. Certificates are used to make the apps you download work, and certificates are only valid for one year. Unless you bought a subscription on the same day we created the certificates (not that likely), your apps will stop working shortly before your subscription ends. To get them working again, you will simply need to download all of your apps again. After downloading your apps again, the data should still be retained. Since we’re not big enough to have our certificates filled in a day or two, there isn’t anything we can do about the certificates expiring before the subscriptions.
Sideload.me App Version 2.0.3
The update fixes the following issues:
- Account checks – After users signed in the app, the app could still be used without problems even if a user was banned. (We had to ban a user for paying with an eCheck that bounced.)
- Sensitive email login – Users could not log in to the app unless the email was in all lowercase.
- Subscription Expired Warnings – Users will now be alerted when their subscription has expired.
- App Size – We’ve deceased the app’s size from 56MB to only 10MB.
