In praise of indie developers

I ran into four minor problems in setting up apps on my new Mac. Two had to do with transferring licenses; one, with an update; and one, with my attempt to find an alternative menu-bar icon that looked good on a Retina screen. I e-mailed each app’s developer and heard back (just nineteen minutes later in one case), and each problem found a fix.

So I’m saying here what I’ve already said in further e-mails — thanks, to Rubén García Pérez (Turbo Boost Switcher), Jesse Grosjean (WriteRoom), Gus Mueller and Kirstin Mueller (Acorn), and Adam Preble (SwiftText). These developers are helpful to their customers, and their apps are great. Huzzah!
