    Hey there! I thought I'd chime in on this. Honestly, we can’t thank you enough for your support. We wanted to keep this with the community and Kickstarter gave us that ability. I personally left my job and worked without pay for a solid year before Kickstarting. The funds we received were used solely and sparingly to keep the lights on at home and food in our children’s mouthes. Without it, Macaw would have been nothing more than an idea because we had already spent our entire savings trying to build it. The wife was ready to kill me!

    We were one of the few Kickstarter campaigns to actually deliver our product. We even did it on time, which is rare! We poured every piece of ourselves into what we were building and I’m quite proud of what we accomplished. Our very small team was able to build something that would have cost other teams millions of dollars and years of engineering. Not only that, we were dedicated to building more, so we started Scarlet. It's not done, but it has some amazing potential. We realized the best way to maximize that potential is with the help of someone. That someone is InVision.

    Macaw only exists because we all came together to make it real. That’s awesome. This community is self-powering and we’re honored to play our part. We have a lot more coming. Thanks so much!

      You're being really nice to this guy. You don't owe anyone an explanation for anything. You guys have been transparent since before day one, and I was more than pleased with what I got for my Kickstarter money. People think they own a piece/are owed something from a successful company when they backed it on Kickstarter.

      Congrats on the acquisition, and I'm excited to see what you guys are doing with one of my favorite products.

      Hi. Can you give us at least a hint on what would happen to Scarlet? Will it be Invision Scarlet (it's jk..)? I just hope that it doesn't become a part of Invision app which is already becoming bloated..
