Closing Windows

I've decommissioned my Windows software site. After three months, the Windows version of QuickWho had failed to register a single sale. While QuickWho does not sell in huge volume on the Mac, it does sell a bit, and I expected similar performance from Windows.

Some might say that I didn't give Windows enough time--I released QuickWho for Windows at the end of the summer--but I am not entirely a rookie when it comes to developing software, nor to marketing it. I tried everything I knew to gain some attention for QuickWho, and it gained next to no attention at all. Even a few sales would have persuaded me this investment of effort and time was worth it, but they were not forthcoming.

I do not intend to give up on pursuing growth in my sales and my product portfolio, but my experience with Windows has persuaded me that my time is better spent on the Mac. I'm also going to be investigating opportunities in a related platform developed by Apple. More on that later.
