Character

I posted earlier about my disppointment that there is a scammy faux lock screen app in the top grossing list on the iOS App Store. This developer is taking advantage of people and making what I can only assume is fat stacks of cash in the process.

My next reaction, after disappointment in the developer, was disappointment in myself for being in much less profitable app categories than “Fake Apps.” However, I almost immediately realized that’s stupid.

I’m not a software developer to make a quick buck off of the naïveté of users. Long after the cash from those sales is spent, I’ll still be making amazing software.

Who do I want to be known as? Some creep that takes advantage of people or someone with character who builds quality software? I’m unwilling to sell out my principles for money.
