SketchParty TV: Free vs. Paid

Why two editions? What are the differences between the paid and free versions of SketchParty TV?

SketchParty TV was originally introduced as a paid app in 2012, at a time when there was a (small) backlash against in-app purchases among what I consider my core audience for the game (namely smart people like you who value well-made products and don't mind paying for quality).

Since then the prevailing sentiment about IAP has changed.

Now people are generally OK with free apps and IAP, so long as the app is honest. Free apps with IAP almost serve as a sort of "trial version" — try it out for free, and if you like it, buy the extra features.

Main differences between SketchParty TV and SketchParty TV Free:

  Paid Free
Companion iOS & Apple TV apps
Also supports AirPlay

Standard word list (1000+ words) in 10 languages

I created SketchParty TV Free because I want as many people as possible to enjoy it with their families and friends.

The free version has only the standard word list and it doesn't have the custom word list editor. All of the premium word lists and the word list editor are available in the free app as add-on purchases for a small, one-time fee each, or combined for a discount.

Whether you buy the full version or try the free version (and buy IAP later!), thank you for supporting an indie dev by playing SketchParty TV.
