Most people pay for “free” apps with their personal data and rights. I think if software runs your life, then you get to say how. This is why I build responsible, competitive, transparent, and privacy-respecting alternatives to products that are none of those things.
I sell subscriptions with a rare collection of benefits:
- Dedicated support.
- Your say in projects.
- No spying. Ever.
- No third-party ads. Ever.
- No sponsored content. Ever.
- No anti-competitive practices. Ever.
- No secrets. You get access to source code.
In other words, you pay only for my active work on software that you can audit, and that will serve you without intrusive ads or prying eyes. I believe this arrangement is better for society, but it is up to you to vote for that arrangement with your wallet. If I built something that helps you or you want to hire me to start work on a feature that you need, then please purchase a subscription.
