    I have a question about the token system is it shared with all 3 platforms or individual for each of them

    Shared across all providers.


    There's one token bucket and any download counts against it.

    Thank you

    it’s a little silly it’s shared but I do understand the limiting

    I believe it should not be shared over all. But limits per providers

    I really don't think the AS developers initially intended on using a token system, but from first launch there was some rampant overuse of even the trial version of the product.

    So, they added the token system after launch to reel things in a bit.

    It's a safety measure, with a liberal allotment of downloads, refreshed quickly after use.


    Maybe in the future they will enhance it and have a separate token bucket for each provider.

    The token bucket for each provider would be amazing feature.

    specialty when more services become available
