- Go get a quote to develop an app exactly like Pythonista
- Review if what you paid is fair
As a developer myself I am sick of people setting unrealistic expectations from developers.
This isn't a mass-market app, in fact there are far more reasons to use Apple's Swift or Objective-C over Python than the inverse.
With niche market apps comes niche market waiting.
There is a lot of work that goes into supporting the various little things (internal modules).
Even C-based Python addons aren't always going to be easy to port over to iOS.
There are tons of options for getting exactly what you want from the massive SDK released by Apple, but none of them allow you to do develop right on the device.
Feel free to review the available options- in fact feel free to develop a competing product!
The truth of the matter is, there is plenty that Pythonista can do, and it is able to solve a lot of problems for a lot of people.
For instance, little "junk" apps which are simple in python but current iOS options are riddled with ads, etc can be made with ease.
Unless I am mistaken I don't think omz is making millions from this app.
Also, I can't see anyone here actually reading enough documentation or forum posts to refer to him as anything other than "The developer".
Any developer who could actually use the enhanced functionality correctly can do it themselves.
If you don't have the skills to implement it yourself, learn more, or choose another project.
While Pythonista remains the best in its small market, stop whining and perhaps help by solving issues and posting code.
