    Honestly, the biggest problem was that you put advertisements. There were absolutely no features on the app, so people feel that you are profiting from absolutely nothing. And to be honest, you really were. All it was was a simple web view. None of us knew what you were planning to do with the app. All we saw was a person making money off of an app that was a browser.

    Consider open sourcing the app. You have a large amount of programmers (including me) who are dying to get working on a snapzu app. We would all gladly dedicate our time on making the best of what we have and converting the app once the API is released.

      IMO the Adds first, functionnality later was a bad move.

      as a budding app developer I thought this was a great (but challenging) opportunity.

      We all make mistakes starting out, people probably will not mind the adds (as much) once the app contributes to the snapzu experience significantly.

      You're certainly right about the way it could have been perceived, and looking back I released the app far too soon, before even the basically functionality I wanted was there. I do believe now though that it's in a very basic functional state, I have been using it today myself and have about 100 ideas of what I want to do with it, I just need to work out which is the most important to do first.
