Why are you only releasing for the mac app store?



The Mac App Store is an excellent distribution channel that, even with its drawbacks, still removes a ton of friction for us as well as our customers. We'll certainly consider other distribution channels (especially for site licenses or bulk purchases), but the App Store has been good to us so far!


Sorry, I meant: Why did you decide to go for Mac OS only? I imagine that you could gain a userbase from Linux users who can't natively use the Adobe Suite. It's all web technologies after all, I imagine you could code the frame in Qt.


Ah, gotcha. We're both well versed in Mac development and are very productive in Objective-C/Cocoa, which is why we chose that platform. The App Store was also a factor, as is the popularity of Macs with designers and web developers.
