I was introduced to ARC when I purchased the EZ-Robot Module when it was still part of EZ-Robot. At that time there were no monthly subscription fees. At least not for the things I was doing. I have an R&D background designing and building large-scale enterprise software and user experience (UX) is a big part of software adoption and generally good design. I always thought ARC's UX could be improved drastically. But since it was freeware, I lived with it. But eventually, I stopped using it and gave up my robot project altogether because I found UX too cumbersome. Years later. my son recently got interested in robotics so rebooted my robot project with him. But that's when I remembered how much I disliked the user experience (and this time I wasn't alone with this opinion). But now since I'm getting charged for basic skills even when testing I thought it was appropriate to bring this up in the public forum. I honestly can't justify the cost of paying for software I know I wouldn't enjoy using and likely stop using it. It's definitely disheartening that I paid for hardware that is now tightly coupled to the ARC software and I am expected to pay more for something I don't even like
I'd like to contribute to the UX of the product and lend my experience to making the software better. But I'm curious what is the product roadmap and is the UX being addressed?
