App Updates! BB10, and the future
Hi guys! We wanted to let you know that we have our BB10 app available in BlackBerry World, here’s the link to that:
NOW, to the important part. We’re charging a buck for the app. Here’s why:
We make this show, every week, for free. And you can easily use your phone to access our website, as it scales to smaller screens quite nicely. The ENTIRE point of apps for the show is to give you guys a way to donate to us. If you don’t want to buy the app, that is entirely okay with us! We’ll still be making a free podcast for you to listen to and download in your favorite podcast app (or stream via the website).
We’re aware that the app we made for BlackBerry World was via the BB App Generator, and we’re okay with that, because we’re not rich. It’s expensive to build an app from the ground up (not to mention maintenance and updates), and right now, we’re not in a position to do so. All proceeds from the app go directly BACK into Techfoolery. We’re not lining our pockets with your money, we promise. We just want to make the show sustain itself, and this is a way to help do that without a bunch of international payment woes. You pay $0.99, we pay a cut to the app store you bought it in, and the rest goes back to the show.
If that makes you really mad, you can absolutely listen to the podcast for free anywhere else on the internet. Because we don’t want to charge you for the show, and we will NEVER charge you for the show.
The same format will apply to any future apps we release for Android, iOS, and WP8. Thanks for supporting us!
