Nowadays, many apps sell subscription based services. You’re asked to either pay monthly or annual rates for additional features. For example, you can subscribe to a music app such as Apple Music, Pandora Premium or Spotify to stream songs from a huge database of tracks. Or, you can opt to read the full content available in the Wall Street Journal. Practically, any iOS app developer can switch for a subscription based service, like the popular writing-app Ulysses did.
