FAQ FF-sispm:buyable features

  1. multidevice usb
  2. multidevice bluethooth
  3. apple script support
  4. automator support
  5. scheduler

Disclaimer:
This is prerelease information and may change at any time prior to 0.3.0! There is no price fixed, currently I plan to use the 1,59€ price tag per feature (this results in 7,95€ for all features - if I implement them all. This is not very likely because this means extended investments (e.g. for multi bluetooth I need 2 devices to test this under real conditions) - we will see, if enough people really spend cash to use this app I might decide otherwise - crazy like I am)
