I made this site some months ago, didn’t expect much and posted it on ProductHunt. Unexpectedly many people upvoted it which was amazing! The idea wasn’t that bad after all I thought.
I got many E-Mails with feature requests or bug reports which I wanted to fix, but because I didn’t use a CMS (Content Management System) the site was a pure chaos. I thought about fixing the bugs and adding the features, but adding a CMS to a “complex” website isn’t the best idea. This meant something new must be created.
A successor for freemium.cc is in the works. Some wanted features like a search, tags, dark mode, and faster tool submissions. The site will also have a new design and maybe no Tool pages anymore. The student discount feature will remain off course.
A second version is not always more popular (at least in the book and movie industry), but still – my aim is to make the experience for the end-user better.
If you have any suggestions for freemium 2.0, contact me! User feedback can help these kinds of projects immensely. I hope you’ll like it.
