Frequently Asked Questions
Cross Post is free, but it has limits. You can post to only one social media site at a time using the free version. You can remove this limitation by purchasing the "Unlock Everything" In-App Purchase item. After making the purchase you can send your post to more than one social media site at the same time.
The In-App Purchase is provided so you can try the app out for free. It's fully functional with one exception. You can send your post to one social media site at a time. This means if you want to send the same post to Facebook and Twitter, then you must send the post twice, once for each social media site. But if you purchase the "Unlock Everything" In-App Purchase item, then this limitation is removed and you can send your post to more than one social media site at the same time.
It is a one time charge. You never have to pay for the app again once you purchase the "Unlock Everything" item.
First of all thank you for your purchase. It is much appreciated. Now back to the question, no, you do not have to purchase "Unlocked Everything" on each device. You only need to purchase it once, then restore your purchase on each additional device. You can accomplish this by tapping "Restore Purchases" in the Settings screen.
