    Why is Netbot free? 1. Gets more people on ADN (seems to be working http://appnetizens.com/nupd). 2. Developer Incentive Program revenue has been ≫ sale revenue and we hope that as more users come in that amount grows for everyone (and obviously us).

              @pth wow. DIP brings in more money than sales. That's interesting.

                  @pth Is there a roadmap to expand Netbot to OS X?
                  little
                    Agreed >> @jdl: @pth excellent idea guys. Glad to see you further improving the community.

                      @pth I’ve been wanting to try adn for a while. @netbot going free was the incentive I needed to give it a shot.

                        @pth and why did it disappear from Tapbots.com?

                          @pth It’s so great to hear that the business model in ADN works for developers. Great move!

                            @spacekatgal @pth It does PMs now. Could use group message (channel) support but I’m not gonna be the one to bring that up so soon.

                              @pth at least your honest :) good update.

                                  @pth was it intentional that the translate feature now rolls you to MSafari and google translate? Or is that a bug?

                                    @pth nice 😊 congrats on Netbot! It’s really nice! Btw you should add an option to cross post to twitter

                                      @timpritlove ja, irgendwie schon und irgendwie nicht. Ich von auf das nächste MobileMacs mit ADN-Segment gespannt :)

                                        @pth Thanks for posting this. I don't think there's a way for me to ask this without sounding like I'm attacking you or feeling entitled, so sorry about that. But why did you decide to release with partial PM support? I'm genuinely curious.

                                          @little @pth woah thanks 😊 It was odd that in this awesome app, that this thing was missing!

                                            @mps @pth also, in Tweetbot, can we have the translate button added to the tap & hold menu of a tweet again?

                                              People forget that ADN pays devs as well...great incentive! >> @pth: Why is Netbot free? 2. Developer Incentive Program revenue has been ≫ sale revenue and we hope that as more users come in that amount grows for everyone (and obviously us).

                                                @pth that's good and thanks for being truthful. But Netbot still feels like a "build and forget" app. Based on your comment you have no incentive to actually improve it (just my perspective) @dram

                                                  @pth @jury in all honesty, the fact that Netbot went free was the tip of the iceberg for me. I wanted to try ADN, and now that a great app that’s free that supports it…I’m here!

Don't mind that it's now free. Glad I was able to contribute. Apps don't make themselves and developers have to eat. ☺
