A bit of a weird post today, but I’ve come to the realisation that I need to find a way to fund myself through the last bit of my university course.
I spend nearly all of my time doing one of two things, university work, or developing things for everyone. Whether it’s a new application, a website, or something, I’m always making stuff.
I guess most people would simply raise the prices of their products, in order to try and make more money, but I don’t really want to do that. I want to reward people for backing what I do, so this is what I came up with:
- Qwiki, my Wikipedia app for Mac has been discounted (indefinitely) from £3.99 to £2.99.
- Pretty Regular Expressions, my upcoming regular expressions app for iOS and macOS will only be £0.99.
- All of my other apps are completely free. This includes my fun pixel art iMessage Sticker Pack!
Why would I make everything free, or really cheap? Because I trust everyone that finds my content useful, wants to help me in what I do, or simply is a super awesome person will back me.
And that's why I've set up a Patreon page. Honestly I feel a bit dirty doing this, because I don't want to ask for your money, but if I can balance this out by creating some awesome projects, then I think I can make sense of it.
If you can support me, then it really is a case of anything helps. The costs associate with University (especially in London) are stupid, and then there's my desire to make things that also adds to that, even a coffee will help me through the day.
Don't worry though, because I'll have a good announcement in a few days relating to a certain app I'm making!
