Its tough on the App Store®

Today one of my long time competitors whose product I've admired and respected has called it quits:

I'm very sorry to hear this but the fact is that it's tough to make money on the App Store. Customers (rightly) demand high quality software which takes time to create, test and support and this requires a business to reach a sustainable income.

For those counting, this is less than 1 year since Overcast entered the Podcast App marketplace, bringing a beautiful UI and some of the sound processing features that RSSRadio has featured for some time to the masses with Marco's popularity and following. Thats a tough act to follow.

Over this time I've pushed RSSRadio further than I ever thought possible, paying careful attention to the design and usability. This hard work has been successful, delivering customers with a better application and me and my family with a continued living.

This won't be the only high profile casualty we see this year on the App Store, but what I can tell you is that Dorada won't be one of them. My business remains profitable and diversified.

So long Instacast, you will be missed.
