AndroidPIT App Center store is closing

Dear users,

The App Center will be terminated on 31 December 2014. It means that you will not be able to purchase or re-install your purchased applications from the AppCenter store since 1 January 2015.

Please read AndroidPIT official announcement here.

As is mentioned in the official announcement from AndroidPIT  you can contact applications developers for problem solving of your purchased licenses even after 31 December 2014. However, the FonPIT company providing AndroidPIT site and AppCenter store did not give us any authority to refund or transfer the purchased licenses or applications to your Google Play accounts.

Immediately after the AndroidPIT’s official announcement was published we posted a requirement on their forum for the solution of this complicated situation.

To date we have not received any response.

You can find our requirement to AndroidPIT here.

We will inform you of additional information we are expecting from AndroidPIT. Please follow our blog for the latest information regarding the AppCenter closing.

    I can´t understand why other developers transfer the license to amzon app store without cost.
    There seems to be a problem with transfer to google play store but a solution with amazon would be welcome too. There is no point in asamm insisting they couldn´t do anything. At least they got some part of the money we paid for the app. In amazon other vendors just release vouchers for the new buy. But it seems Locus wants to earn on androidpit´s closing by selling their app a second time.

    Androidpit claims that it is not possible to transfer the license back to you or to Google Play due to technical reasons.

    We all expect a solution from you, because we bought an offical license of your product!

    Hi, the androidpit closing is getting closer and closer. I would like to know what happens to my license. Most of the developers did find a solution. For example I got a voucher for Amazon, a coupon code for an in app purchase, a huge discount on the app's price or a refund via PayPal. The only developer with no information is locus. Unfortunately it's the most expensive app and I can't afford to buy again at the moment. When do you think will you come up with a solution? Thanks for your help.
