Jesse Grosjean, developer for apps such as TaskPaper and WriteRoom at Hog Bay Software, stated via email that he’ll have to discontinue development of the iOS counterparts of these apps due to sales dropping in the last year.
He’s still going to continue working on the Mac apps for FoldingText, WriteRoom and TaskPaper.
For anyone using the iOS apps, not to fear, PlainText for iOS will be continued in the form of PlainText 2 by 433 Labs and is currently free for a limited time. As a replacement for TaskPaper, he suggests Listacular, which also offers Dropbox sync for TaskPaper for Mac files.
As a creator, not of apps, but of media I hope users and fans will consume, this is disheartening, but understandable. I’ve supported Jesse in the past and continue to use TaskPaper and FoldingText. Audra uses both TaskPaper and WriteRoom as well.
It’s tough being a creator.
