A while back I read about the Paid App Pledge over at Android Guys. I didn’t want to sign up to that – the last thing I want to do is encourage more hidden source code.
The intention is a good one though – encouraging more high quality software on the Android platform. Not that I think there’s a shortage of it, but more is better.
With that in mind, here’s my alternative pledge:
Any time I can afford to do so, I’ll take a look at the FOSS apps I’m using on my phone that I haven’t donated to yet. Then I’ll make a donation to the one I use most.
As well as financial donations I’ll make the effort to contribute in other ways too. That can include reporting bugs, suggesting features, or contributing code. Everything helps.
Care to join me?
