I genuinely love what Glide have achieved here, but I feel that the Glide team is actively preventing the upgrade to Pro with limitations that treat the users like children that can’t be trusted.
I committed that I would upgrade to Pro if my app could play audio across multiple screens. This was understandably difficult for Glide without re-coding the way they navigate between pages, so I accept that limitation as an out of the box feature.
Next I needed playlist support for the audio player. This can be implemented really easily in HTML, but of course Glide won’t allow even their Pro users to use custom HTML, despite being simple to implement and opening up their development potential significantly.
I’m now needing to hire a developer to build the entire app outside of Glide purely because they refuse to allow their users to perform even the most basic customizations. It just doesn’t make sense to go 95% of the way to a great app but need to throw it all out in the final 5% because they have trust issues with their paying customers.
