How are you guys making money if there are no ads, in-app purchases or premium versions?
Playapod is a passion project. It currently provides zero revenue for the company. In fact, it’s actually costing a bit of money to pay for the cross-platform syncing and of course development of the app itself hasn’t been cheap. But it’s been fun to create! Cheers
