A good friend, Francine Hardaway, forwarded some comments and question about Flypaper to me that were on a Social Networking site that I am not a member of. So I sent her the following to answer the questions. She is going to post my answers there but I thought I would post it here as well.
Thanks for forwarding this. I have actually seen a few of these comments
before. I am not on FriendFeed so did
not reply and don’t want to join and learn yet another social network right now.
Perhaps you can post my comments there
for me? I will also post this on my own
blog and on Flypaper’s blog.
It is a Windows app because the
app was targeted for business pro’s who either create or buy Flash programs especially
for sales and marketing. Windows is by
far the platform of choice for these people. We do have demand for a Mac version especially from graphic artists. The breakthrough with the Flash stuff we
create is that mere mortals can now create, edit and customize real Flash
programs. Flash programmers, graphic
artists, web developers, etc. can also deliver really cool Flash stuff but now
deliver in a way their customers can edit themselves instead of having to go
back to the programmer to maintain it. Both the customer and developer wins because usually the programmer
hates maintenance. They love to create.
