Neglected Apps ➝

Marco Arment, on the announced shutdown of Parse:

In particular, it’ll be problematic when possibly hundreds of thousands of iOS apps just stop working in a year because their developers have long since moved on, or their contracts expired, or they can’t afford to spend time on a significant update.

This is one of the main reasons why I try and support developers in any way I can. We all rely on these apps to get stuff done and none of us want to see them go away.
