    A paid app to check a domain? Really?

      You don't have to pay. Feel free to use another app or service.

      Nowadays you pay for 9 out of 10 apps. We will be giving away a several promo codes on our Twitter page. @dmnyapp

        9 out of 10? Where are you getting your information? Everyone from John Gruber to Marco Arment has been saying the exact opposite: the future is freemium.

          As I said, feel free to use other free services.

            Of course. And congrats on launching the app, it does look slick. Not everyone can launch such an elegant solution.

            But I still am curious: where are you getting your information about paid apps, particularly for such a straight-forward issue? If I'm misinformed I'd like to be able to learn why that is the case.

              Thanks a lot!

              Well, I see a lot of apps being released in my Twitter timeline e.g. a calculator app which has also been posted here on DN. The price of that thingy is also about 2$. 9 out of 10 times when I want to download the apps I have to pay for them. I am even surprised if the app is free.

              My idea was to release the app for free but I changed my mind since I've spoken to some people who called me a fool for releasing it for free. Who knows what will happen in the future.. ;)

      Of course, there are hundreds of free websites where you can check the status of a domain name.

      Domainr isn't an app, is it? We wanted to make an app, which is fast and easy to use.

          Yeah I found it. We tried our best to make the design look good and make it simple, clean and easy to use. As a designer I like to work with good looking apps; so the domainr app is an app I'd personally don't want to work with. (Just my taste of apps)
