I came across this challenge via a blog recently, and apparently it is quite the rage currently.
I wrote about my motivation to make this app here: https://twitter.com/sardamit/status/1301252146482954240?s=20
In my understanding, Glide doesn’t count rows from the Users/App Login tabs towards the limits.
And for this app, I have only used user-specific columns to track a user’s progress through the program.
In theory, this app could have hundreds and thousands of users, without me having to pay anything because I am well within the limits of the Free/Personal tier.
But because I know that user data will still be captured for these thousands of users (if there ever are) using Glide Sheets, it will still cost Glide. I don’t know how significant these costs are but I empathize with Glide when it says that paid apps pick up the tab for free apps like this.
This was a fun PoC app for me, and I found this possible loophole while developing this app. Not many apps will be able to exploit this, but sharing it so that Glide can think of a solution, if applicable.
