We are a self-funded company, and we haven’t taken any outside investment. At this time we’re not able to maintain the level of service we feel is acceptable with a Free plan - we’re spreading ourselves and our resources too thinly. By making this change we will have more time and resource to make Boords the best it can be for the creative community. We’re committed to making storyboarding simple, and we’re in it for the long haul.
We know that not everyone will be able to afford to pay to use Boords. For this, we are truly sorry. However, no user storyboards will be deleted unless requested. All registered Boords users, either paid or free, will still be able to download their storyboard PDFs and images. However in order to create new storyboards, or edit existing ones, we'd ask users to consider need to upgrading to a paid plan.
We're still offering a completely free 7-day trial (no credit card required), which includes all Boords functionality.
From myself and the whole team, we'd like to extend our hearfelt thanks for supporting Boords. We're incredibly grateful for the amazing response to Boords so far, and are so excited to continue to push the app forward over the coming months and years.
