Fiery Feeds is an iOS RSS client. As shown in the following screenshot, I’ve bought it in August 2016 for 3,99€:

In other words, the total cost of ownership (TCO) of the app probably doubled or tripled for the average user—and will increase even more when the new price will be in place.
And just to be clear: I’m not telling to the developer of Fiery Feeds that raising the price was a bad idea, or he had no right to do so, or whatever. He’s free to do whatever he wants with his product. I’m just saying Fiery Feeds is another example in the (long?) list of apps that used subscriptions to raise (sometimes significantly) their price. So: welcome on the list!
