Are there any knowledgeable folks here who know what the current situation at/with ConnectedText is?

I sent some bug reports in mid December and didn’t get any response. I tried the forum in January - they just assumed that Eduardo was on holiday, though there’s nothing to that effect on the website.

One month on, still nothing, the forum is as quiet as the grave ... - I don’t know how long Brazilian holidays are, but is this a sign that I need to start looking for a replacement?

I tried to sign up to the forum a couple months ago. Never got approved—kind of discouraging.

I checked in with Eduardo on Facebook and got an immediate answer. Yes, CT is still alive, but he’s not been able to develop it at the pace he is happy with.

Hmmm.  I don’t see that responding to bug reports has anything to do with development speed. If he can’t even find time to respond to anything, looks like a problem to me.

So are you hoping that by calling it “moribund” on a public forum you will get Eduardo fix your specific bug more quickly?

I find that tactic a bit troubling. I don’t know Eduardo’s circumstances, but I hazard a guess that CT is not his main livelihood but his labour of love that he has sustained on the side.

Considering what CT is, to me it is a very mature, very stable and perfectly functioning product. I run into zero bugs in my daily use, but maybe I’m not a particularly sophisticated user.

Still, to me ConnectedText is an absolutely amazing and mindblowing software and I haven’t found anything that comes near it.

I consider Eduardo a genius for being able to come up with something like this, especially if he had developed this product in his spare time.

So the last thing I’d want is for him to be put off or discouraged by these sort of posts from pursuing this project any further.

If anything, this kind of community should be helping and encouraging individual developers to survive in the face of mega giants promoting mediocrity and the lowest common denominator across the world with their mega budgets.

When will a Google or Microsoft ever come up with a product that comes anywhere near what CT can do?
