I can understand your frustration and hope that you continue developing, even though you havn't recieved any cash for it!
I probably shuldn't have even logged on this week. The grandma of my girlfriend / practically wife of 5.5 years had a stroke and is in hospice. We've been at the hospital until 2am, somtime 4am almost everyday, and I still have been working. For my real job, I am a software engineer, so I am used to getting paid for my work, and pretty well at that.
What have I learned from the development of the 4 column program tab and the weather city editor?
If you want to make any money from donations, you need to make ROMs. And if you are a developer, you are better off not sharing things that you develop, but instead put them in your ROM.
I am seriously considering buying an iPhone and the needed hardware and software to develop for it. There is actually a business plan so developers can make money and get some conpensation for their work.
It woud be great if xda had something like a donate to developers and then payouts to developers would be made based on collected revenue and the number of downloads. The problem is that people don't just want to donate a dollar. But they think 5 or 10 is too much and I'd agree. But if they donated $10 toward all the things they download, they might just do it.
My 2 cents on that.
Anyway sorry for snapping at you.
