Premium is the paid, full version of an application. Taking the first steps with your productivity application doesn't mean you need to be paying for Premium.
Most applications tend to have a freemium experience or trial to indulge in before committing to a one-off or recurring fee. In this lesson, we take you through how to apply a frugal mentality when starting out with a productivity app or resource. Many people do leap at the chance to go Premium, to get a badge or access additional features. Some people want to feel like they own a service, but in reality, if you're not comfortable with something yet, why commit? Like a relationship, it's a two-way street, so respecting each other's needs is paramount and departing ways if they don't match might be for the better before the monetary and time commitment is placed.
