Have you ever written this in a forum, addressed to a software developer: “I have $50 here which I’ll totally give you if you make this app”? No, of course not, because that would make you a thoughtless individual — we all know that software costs way more than that to develop.
Take NumLock, for example. It’s exactly the kind of app that forum-begging is made for. It turns back on the num-lock that Apple removed from its keyboards for seemingly no reason other than the aesthetic. How much would you promise a developer that you’d “totally pay” for an app to re-enable the number keypad? Well, now you can put that money where your, uh, keyboard is, and pitch in to DenVog’s cheap-as-chips Kickstarter campaign.
The minimum pledge is just one measly dollar, and the app itself will be free if and when it launches. The money is just to pay for DenVog’s time and resources. The app itself sits in the menu bar and can be toggled either with a mouse click or a hot key (use Fn-F6 for some nostalgic accuracy).
In truth, DenVog’s price goal of $500 is ridiculously low, even considering a year’s worth of download costs and so on. Still, he’s offering, so go ahead and do some taking.
