I found a good number of these points invalid.

  • I've seen a number of fitness apps, and also have worked on some apps that have zero functionality without a purchase. Is a free tier really mandatory?

  • Similarly I worked on implementing credit card forms that buys access/subscription to an iOS app, and confirmed.

  • Also about email, I don't think nothing wrong with charging for an intermediate tool. I am not arguing if it worths or not. It's up to consumer. There are paid git clients out there that does the same thing that already can be done for free by command line or say Sourcetree. You pay for the UX and convenience.
