Selling Cheddar

Posted January 6th, 2013

I am a little sad and very excited to be selling Cheddar. It has been a crazy ride along the way. Thank so much to all of you who have supported me along the way. It’s truly humbling that you take the time to use something I spent a lot of time making.

I simply don’t have the time to give Cheddar the love it deserves. Lots of you have asked for tons of great features that I personally wish Cheddar had as well. I think it’s better for everyone if it moves on to a new home where some can give it the love it deserves. This makes me a little sad to see all of my hard work go to someone else. I’m excited really to see where they take it though!

Jolie O’Dell interviewed me about selling Cheddar over at Venture Beat. Give it a read if you’re curious.

Announcing Cheddar for Mac!

Posted December 7th, 2012 in #announcement#mac

Cheddar for Mac just hit the App Store. Download it for free on the Mac App Store!

Cheddar for Mac has taken tons and tons of development hours. Mac development is a lot harder than iOS development so things take a lot longer.

I have a personal level of polish I like to maintain throughout Cheddar and frankly Cheddar for Mac is not up to that standard. I know a lot of you have been using the Cheddar for Mac beta (which was super buggy). This is a big improvement over that, but it still has a long way to go. Anyway, I figured it was best to ship it instead of polish forever. “Real artists ship.”

To continue my commitment to bettering the community, Cheddar for Mac is open source just like Cheddar for iOS. If you see a problem and want to fix it, that would be amazing :)

Anyway, I hope you like Cheddar for Mac. If you enjoy it and feel it deserves 5 stars for helping you be more productive, love that it’s free and open source, or just want to make me smile, I would definitely appreciate a review.

Thanks again for all of your support. It truly means the world to me.

I just noticed a silly bug that will case the Mac App Store to think Cheddar for Mac always needs an update even when it’s update to date. Sorry about that. I’m submitting 1.0.1 to fix that and a ton of other bugs this weekend.
