After experiencing some ‘software frustration’ today, I thought I might just affirm that I will do everything in my power to avoid ever requiring a subscription to use Mother Hen. I hate software subscriptions and I think most people, if given a choice, would avoid subscriptions as well. I understand that developers (like me) want to make a living, but I don’t think that entitles them to receive payment for their work in perpetuity, unless they are somehow providing an ongoing service that costs them time or money.
Today, I had the unfortunate realization that Apple doesn’t give developers any ability to contact users that have purchased an app through the App Store; we have to wait for them to reach out to us. I also realized that my old support link, while meeting the bare minimum for launching Mother App on the store, would likely be intimidating to some people.
So, between those two things, they provided enough motivation to get this site up and operational.
As you might have been able to tell from the description of Mother Hen in the App Store, I’m trying to give our app a little more of a personal connection. I want people to feel like they can make suggestions on things that would make Mother Hen just a little better.
