    Xojo — Sponsor

    Xojo is a cross-platform development tool for creating native apps for desktop, mobile, web and Raspberry Pi.

    With Xojo you really can write just one version of your app, say, on the Mac, click a button, and have a completely native Windows version too.

    Xojo lets you abstract yourself from specific platform details, so you can focus on what makes your app unique. All apps have completely native controls, even if they weren’t developed on that platform. Just use drag and drop to create your user interface, and one language to program the functionality.

    Users also include Fortune 500 companies, citizen developers, professional developers, IT, hobbyists and students - anyone who wants to build apps faster.

  3. TMS 042: Making an Email Client with Benny Kjær Nielsen | Think, Make, Sell.

    Benny Kjær Nielsen is a software developer and makes MailMate, a Mac email client for power users. In this interview he talks about life as an indie software developer and how crowdfunding enabled him to keep working on the app instead of having to get a job.

    Special Announcement: Benny is giving away three free licenses for MailMate. All you need to do is send an email to mail@thinkmakesell.com and say that you want to participate in the giveaway. Last chance to participate is Sunday, March 23! The three lucky winners will be announced on the show.

    Takeaway Points

    To compete against free products, find a small segment of the market whose needs aren’t being met.

    Once you’re pricing your app above $20 or so, you’ve already lost the $1-$2 crowd so you might as well try $40 or $50.

    Taking your app off the Mac App Store doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll lose all those sales. Some customers will find your online store.
