Over the past few years, I have experimented with a few ways for people to “buy me a coffee” to support my free apps. This year, I am trying out Patreon. I totally recognize a lot of folks are not in a position to donate to open-source software right now, but the start of a new year seemed like a good time to flip the switch.
As with past experiments, this is not a paywall. At a future point, when things feel a little less up in the air, I might try more of its features beyond giving folks a way to help cover the costs of developing and hosting these apps, but everything available now and all the core features I was already planning to add to PaintZ, Voice Actions, MaterialZ, Magnethands, etc. will remain free forever.
