Best monetization model for Synth on iOS and Android

Hello there,
What do you guys think is the best monetization model for synth app in 2020? I am trying to decide between paid and in-app-purchase, and here are some things what I found from my past experience working with apps in general.


  • Simple to implement.
  • Usually have a higher rating since you won’t have people complaining about locked features.


  • Less traffic, might lose some potential buyers.


  • More traffic.
  • Potential buyers have a chance to try out your app.


  • People who were never going to pay in the first place complaining about locked features.
  • A little more work to implement.

Love to hear what you guys think, especially for mobile synthesisers.
