    Unhappy iOS and OSX separate purchases?! Do we have to pay twice?


    I've already purchased the iOS version of ireal Pro, as well as quite a few in-app purchases.
    Do I really need to pay $24.99 just to use the app on my Mac under the same iTunes account, or am I missing something...?

    Yes it runs on a different OS and processor. Also the layout (GUI) is different, key commands, right-click menus etc. So although the songs and playlists can be transferred between iOS and Mac (and Android versions) of iReal Pro, the underlying code for each is not the same.
    Note that the Mac version has the 30 styles built-in. Editing and creating new songs is much faster because of the layout, key commands etc.

    Default Buying for IPAD doesn't let use on Macbook???

    Unlike Onsong and other cross platform apps, IrealPro doesn't allow you to use your Ipad "Purchase" to install on Macbook. Am I missing something? They elaborate and say they are two different systems, yet other apps have figured out how to make customer feel appreciated by not gouging and squeezing money out of their pockets. Tell me I'm wrong please....

    Index, moderators, please tell us that iRealPro has grown up and no longer charges enthusiasts twice for using iRealPro. Itís 2019 already and this is not really the way to keep your users loyal.

    iReal Pro has no control over nor Apple's, nor Google's billing. Apple's App Store for iOS and Mac App Store for Mac are separate stores.
    Please request a bundle solution from Apple, we have done the same but they haven't implemented it yet.
    OnSong only has an iOS version and had a Mac console which was not the same app and it's been discontinued.
