Donations

Possibility to donate in X-plore serves two purposes:

  • Your free will to appreciate developer's effort to work on this application and provide it for free
  • Use some of premium features that you enjoy, which are paid and require donation

X-plore offers most of its features completely for free. This keeps one developer busy each working day, putting hours of time into making this application to work, and adding new features. As motivation to do this, developer have put possibility to donate into the application.

So donations cover part of developer's living costs, providing part of his salary.

Thanks to everyone who sent donation so far.

Why is payment asked

After X-plore got matured as free app, some features are being added as premium features. These features are built to make X-plore really unique tool, and require lots of time to be invested into research, testing, and making them to work properly.

So developer decided to request payment for premium features for keeping his business and work alive. And since donation system was already implemented and working well, and also many users have already donated, decision was made to charge for premium features using same donation system already working, and so that previous donors could enjoy new premium features.

There is no PRO version to buy, all purchasing of “pro” features is done by simply donating.

Some paid features require less virtual beers (donation currency), some require more. However, once you donate requested amount for more valued function (e.g. 3 beers), you get included also those less valued features (e.g. those that cost just 1 beer).

Following functions are paid and require some amounts of “beers”.
Once you pay needed amount, all other features with same or less “beers” will work too.

Function Donation required
WiFi file sharing 3 beers
Music player 3 beers
Access from a PC web browser 3 beers
SSH file transfer 3 beers
Vault 3 beers
Video player 3 beers
PDF viewer 1 beer

Some functions provide limited functionality also without payment (for example music player allows to play one track, video player shows donate icon).

Your donation on all your devices

Once you donate, your donated items are shown on all of your devices (using same Google account) in About screen, and premium features covered by your donation amount are unlocked for you on all your devices. There is no time limit, and you can enjoy X-plore for as long as Google Play store will be functional.
