Almost certainly useless writing this post but here we go.
As title states I've been a customer since the very first version on the AppStore, and in recent years I happily paid the annual subscription for my entire family, as the value always seemed to justify the price.
I will not renew the next subscription.
As a software developer myself I was a bit surprised when the news of the electron migration came out, as I understand the pros (basically only saving money) and cons (slowness, non native UI, inconsistencies here and there) and 1Password apps (for Apple devices) were always on the first line of greatly integrated, beautiful native apps.
But knowing the great team behind it I thought "hey, it might be a VSCode situation", in which it's an electron app but really well built, so I waited a little and now gave the v8 beta a try, alongside reading this early access forum's posts. Result: it's worse than I expected.
All of these things would not really be concerning given that this is beta, but reading the output of 1Password communications it's just "oh v8 is so great", "we are so excited on the electron transition (why??)", or "we will think about your feedback, but have you seen how great is v8?". Just.. no.
On the top of it, you keep announcing new side products (looks like VC money have in fact had an impact on the direction..) that are not what made 1Password great.
So from my, an old customer, point of view, the direction of this software is now "more things at the cost of less quality for each", which is the way now things work I suppose: you focus on "easy" maintenance and development fast workflows instead of the end value for the customer.
This is not what I will pay for. Goodbye, sadly.
