FFXI PDA transitions from paid app to free download

KATY, Texas – 2012-03-13 – Duodyne Studios, LLC today announced that FFXI PDA (FF11 PDA in Japan), its iPhone utility for players of the MMORPG Final Fantasy® XI, will now be available free of charge on the App Store.

This change is being made in part to avoid complications while transferring the app from the current, UK company to the US one.

"Apple confirmed to us that we could not transfer our apps to the new company, and that our customers will have to re-purchase our apps to continue to get updates. We couldn't in good conscience ask our valued customers to pay a second time," said Chris Cooley, Director of Duodyne Studios Ltd (UK) and Co-Founder of Duodyne Studios, LLC.

Duodyne Studios, LLC will continue to support existing products and customers of the UK company. Current apps will be updated and released within the coming months under the new, US company. Minor updates will be released under the UK company notifying customers through the regular App Store mechanism of the change, and directing them to the new free versions.

Duodyne Studios, LLC is an independent software company based in Katy, Texas. The company was founded by Chris and David Cooley to combine decades of experience developing end-user software for Mac OS X and iOS, with expertise in digital media and interface design.
