Is license renewal required for published apps that are no longer in development?



Can you clarify the licensing conditions a little bit for me?

If we were to develop an app that uses ShinobiCharts and publish it via App Store/Google Play, are we still required to renew the license every year, even though the app is no longer in development,
but still available for download, assuming there are no updates?

Kind Regards


Hi Alex,

You need a valid subscription to build an app with shinobicontrols. If the subscription expires you have two choices:

  • Remove shinobicharts for the next release.
  • Don’t make any more releases to the app.

Any app in the app store will continue to work after the license expires, but according to the licensing conditions it cannot be updated without either removing shinobicharts or renewing your license.

Kind regards,
