So I went back into my Contexted account this morning and the few pages I had created were gone and the site was back to how it looked when I first started it. Has anyone else experienced this?

I’m always leery of software promoted as “free forever”. I get that you’re using it as a hook to bait customers into paying for your “value-added” deal, but “nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky” (thanks, Kansas).

I’d rather pay a fair sum for good, useful software. “Free forever” isn’t sustainable.

PS. You might want to reconsider your tagline “The #1 text-first personal knowledge manager”. It’s only been around for a couple of weeks…

For whoever is interested: we launched a major update on the app. I would really appreciate any feedback you might have.

I didn’t see anything on the website about import, export or backups. It looks like a nice notes wiki with intricate plumbing hidden away and some interesting features (eg ZenKit-like multiple views). It looks like a really nice start, but none of the earlier objections from the thread were addressed, like who the company is, what the roadmap is, what is the privacy policy, and of course what is the future of the app in terms of pricing.

I would not support a developer, or buy software from a developer, who solicits feedback and then does not respond to it or even acknowledge it, but does come back here to advertise his software again.
