I really don’t understand the hostility to the OP. This is a perfectly legitimate question and concern, phrased fairly and respectfully.
I’m a very happy user of Pythonista and greatly appreciate the work Ole has put into this amazing tool. I’ve nothing but admiration for the guy and wish him well. In fact my first reaction to the lack of contact was concern that he’s ok, and that’s still the thing highest in my mind.
The fact is iOS 13 is just around the corner. It’s another big step forward for the platform, we all know Apple is willing to break things in order to progress the platform and I’m concerned about compatibility. I’ve already had to create a new ID on this forum, because the password reset function doesn’t work and a request to fix it wasn’t picked up. That’s relatively trivial, but still cause for concern. If there is a more serious issue with the forum, it’s not clear this incredibly valuable asset to the user community would be fixed.
I think politely asking about the support status of an app you’ve paid for, or asking about alternatives if there is a problem, is a reasonable thing to do. Check the thread again, nobody has complained about lack of value, insulted Ole or asked fir their money back, or for made an actual complaint at all. They’re just voicing concerns. That’s it.
I am dismayed though, that some of the most regular, helpful and knowledgeable contributors to the forum are responding to requests about this so aggressively. I get that your heavily invested in the tool and it’s community. I respect that, but insulting or dismissive responses will only harm the community you clearly care so much about, and have done so much to support.
