    Yeah let's stretch limited resources even more finely on a product that you probably wont be able to sell a single copy if you price your software above $10.

    What could possibly go wrong.

      I'm pretty sure that panic also make some good money with coda for ipad, and it is also priced at 10$.

      it could work well on an Air as well as the pro, and the hardware is well suited for the job, especially with iOS 9 and it's awesome drawing methods on the dev side.

      I guess bohemian should have some money in spare since v3 of sketch got hyped like hell. And as you can clearly see Apple is heading towards the iPad as a notebook replacement sooner or later. The iPad Pro + Keyboard + Pen is still way cheaper than the Macbook 12, and has a way better display, is lighter etc.

      So they would make one step ahead of the competitors, and they have the potential of making an awesome combination with the desktop app.

        Panic posted sales & revenue figures at the beginning of the year and had this to say:

        This is the biggest problem we’ve been grappling with all year: we simply don’t make enough money from our iOS apps. We’re building apps that are, if I may say so, world-class and desktop-quality. They are packed with features, they look stunning, we offer excellent support for them, and development is constant. I’m deeply proud of our iOS apps. But… they’re hard to justify working on.

        Plenty of sales, very little revenue.
