Actiontastic goes Free!
One of the big GTD stories this week is the news that Actiontastic will be free (as, Jon says, “free beer”) and open source. With all of the competition in the GTD application space (like Ghost Action for one), this places Actiontastic on a different level with an entire open source community behind it.
This announcement was in start contrast to the debate over Spanning Sync’s initial pricing announcement. I’ve been testing the Spanning Sync service and have found it invaluable, and I believe that developers should be compensated. In that light, Jon’s act is unbelievably generous.
As I’ve posted, I love this app and am excited about what the development community will bring to it. A new non-expiring beta is out (0.9.3) which fixes some small bugs.
There’s a new Actiontastic FAQ – although it just might be that I missed it before.
I am hoping that Jon adds a “Donate” button soon – his work should be rewarded somehow.
