Tony Soprano:
>This jibes with my conclusions about Vesper

Vesper sucks. That's why it didn't make money.

Why not put out a free version of Vesper with ads delivered by The Deck?

Never mind Tony beat me to it.

Even for free, shit is still shit.

Wow, what world-shattering conclusions! Who knew that more people use free apps?

And this is even more true for app categories that are absurdly over-saturated, such as notes apps.

He keeps saying there's a market for Vesper on the Mac well...why not finish the code and release it?

Also, does this mean Android users were ahead of the curve with regards to free apps? Bummer, that's one less thing Grubs can spout about Android users.

Insightful. I'm glad I read this piece.

He can't because he doesn't actually know how to do anything of value. He didn't write a single line of code for Vesper, all he did was "direct" the project (by selecting some ridiculous font with annually recurring licensing fees). And that Simmons guy jumped ship to OmniGroup and effectively abandoned him and Vesper.

APPS SHOULD ADD ADVERTISING? MAYBE THEY COULD DO THIS IN ANGRY BIRDS AND MAKE THE GAME FREE.
