  1. The terminal looks nice and have great features. But when a terminal application ask for money to use It, we must read terms of service clearly. In first paragraph, they hold no responsibility for data damages caused by them, in third paragraph they have authority to delete your data ( must be an oversight in terminology but legally speaking, that is a broad power), in 4th para, they don’t guarantee bugfix upgrade etc, (even though they charge money to use it), and in 5th para, they force you to pay for its use or be termed as a criminal ( again lack of proper terminology means they gave themselves a lot of power ).

    In second para they once again use an improper terminology by calling themselves owner of your email, IP and system information. Basically you give a lot of access to unknown service for $2.90 ( they actually quote $2,90 but I think using comma instead of a decimal is again an oversight but still… ) and you are not even guarantee a bugfix, or update. On top of it, its closed source so what kind of data they actually collect can not be audited by independent reviewer.
