Free software isn't free.
Most people pay for free apps with their personal data and liberties. 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. Unfortunately, I can't build a software business on doing the right thing unless you choose to pay for just that.
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 think this arrangement is better for everyone, but you have the final say.
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.
