You have two paid versions, in which the Pro just allows location? Is that an attempt to fool users to buy both?! I paid for the full one because I wanted the location based thing, obviously didn't even think there were two different PAID versions differing only in location support!!!
Nice trick. Enjoy the money, cause you won't be getting any more from me!

Hi, the reason the location features are split into another app is because for apps using location the Marketplace will show a big disclaimer to the user before downloading. This disclaimer dialog has been proven to scare users away and don't even try the app. SMS Machine by nature is not a location based app, so its not fair to alarm users like the Marketplace does, that's why we have put the very few location features away into a different app.

We can give you a free license for any of our other apps, just tell us which.
Thank you for your explanation. I understand it, even if I personally can't see anything wrong with asking permission for accessing location info. A big number of apps does it.
It would make sense to display info about the Pro version in a similar manner as about the other two. As it is now, the Pro version is almost hidden from your page buying app. If it was shown like the others, the mistake I made could be easily avoided.
Thank you for your offer, I hadn't really thought about it, and I am quite annoyed about this episode. I have more than 140 apps on my phone, many paid and I never saw anything like this. I think I will pass on your offer, but thank you nonetheless.
