Very soon, we will be announcing Kaleidoscope 4 with many exciting new features. But before we share details about the new version, we want to make it clear how the subscription pricing will affect our existing customers.
Today I’d like to share some insight in what I consider a mistake I made in investing our engineering time. Running a business is hard, and there aren’t always perfect solutions or ideal situations.
Our company has a long history with the Mac App Store. Letter Opener has been available since January 2011, the day the App Store opened. Kaleidoscope was released on the App Store in January 2013, when version 2.0 launched.
At the end of 2020, we acquired the app Kaleidoscope. As longtime Mac developers, we were already fans of this powerful tool that makes it easy to spot and merge changes in many different kinds of files, and we were confident we could bring it back to its former glory. In this post, we want to highlight the challenges we faced along the way and share our vision for Kaleidoscope’s future.
