Starting today, Remote Terminal is free of charge.
The reason for this is twofold:
First, in the last 12 months I haven't had any time to improve the app and it doesn't feel right anymore to charge money for it, even if it was only roughly the equivalent of a glass of beer. There are many things that should still be improved, some bugs that should be fixed and additional features that everyone would benefit from.
Which brings me to the second point: to ensure the continued development of Remote Terminal I would like to try open-sourcing it. And, as I see it, it makes no sense to demand money for an Open-Source app.
I have always been a great fan of Open-Source software and appreciate the benefits that come with it. Now I really have to think this through before actually doing it, one obvious concern being that I don't want to open the door to numerous Remote Terminal clones in the Windows Store.
My guess is that a large part of the Remote Terminal users are developers, some of them may even have know-how in developing .NET Windows Store Apps. If anyone has any experience on how to deal with Open-Source apps or is interested in collaborating with me on improving Remote Terminal, I would be thrilled to hear from you in the comments or via e-mail.
Thanks to everyone who bought Remote Terminal in the past (and sorry if I made you angry by giving the app away for free after you paid for it)!
