The mobile company rollApp has made a GIMP, avaiable to mobile users

We are :)

but I feel one of their actions in USING the program is unjust. They will
not allow a user to save their work, using your program, which is
supposed to be free, without paying THEM $6.99 a month!

Unjust? Maybe. Legit? Absolutely.

I am very well aware there is quite possibly nothing you can do about
their practices, but, I felt perhaps if it was unknown, it should be exposed,
that they are trying to earn money off a program, that essentially is not theirs.

There is no problem with that whatsoever. They are entitled to.
Anybody, including you, is.

What _I_ personally see as a problem with rollApp is that:

1. Last time i checked (a while ago, admittedly) they were providing
badly out of date copies of GIMP and Inkscape.

2. They did not adapt either of the two application to specifics of
mobile devices, which means they are providing substandard service to
their customers while retaining the GIMP and Inkscape branding. Now
_that_ seems unjust.
