    Zorro, any chance you'll ever open source this?

    First, let me say this can be a cool app if it works (although it isn't for me at the moment, see my other post). This is not about the software cost for me, either, because if it works, I'll pay the current going rate.

    It just seems that development would move faster with many people working on it, and I wonder if you wouldn't make as much or more from donations? I dunno, of course, I'd say this is as important to my car pc as Road Runner, and I've just contributed to that project (some likely coming to Frodoplayer, too). I also wonder if there are others like me who have concerns about buying an app that may work for a month, and then when I get my new cell phone next month, it may not work properly.

    I know if you have grand commercial plans there is no contest, but it looks like RR is making a few thousand bucks, and it might get some good PR to do something else.

    Okay, enough of my daydreaming for now....keep up the good work, regardless.

    Now where the **** did you get that idea?

    If it's true, hey guino you want a silent partner?





    As to the thread title, I think that is a big fat no.

    Go do some research in the phonecontrol forum, read all the posts.

    Okay, I'll research that, and if it's the case, it seems like I'll have to wait for another commercial app.

    If you research the donations thread under the RR forum, it shows a running total which is current about $2,300.

    I stand corrected, I do apologise (although some of those donations in the list seem to have been duplicated. and it is dollars not so does seem so much)

    No worries! I suspected that the Future thread might indicate his intentions not to ever go OS, but it was a good point on your part.
