A few words about 'us'

Well, there's really only me ...(and a guy named Les)

The idea for Qwikn was spawned a few years ago but was shelved for a number of reasons. On recent internet travels however I was lucky to stumble-upon a pretty clever COCOA developer (Les) who said he could make Qwikn for me — so he did, and now here 'we' are.

We make a pretty good team — Les is smart, and I'm, well... not as smart, but I know what I want Qwikn to be and Les makes it a reality.

I think Qwikn is pretty cool. Les agrees. My girlfriend thinks otherwise.

Why do 'I' charge for this?

It turns out Les doesn't work for free — the nerve of some people, right?

Any revenue from a Qwikn sale is split three ways. Some goes to Les for software revisions and updates. A percentage goes to associated website and marketing expenses, and with whatever's left I buy coffee (and chocolate biscuits — if they're on special).

I'd eventually like to break-even with what it's cost me to get Qwikn to market — but I hazard to guess when that will actually be. My girlfriend hopes sooner than later because I've spent all my savings and she's getting tired of having to pay the bills — she can be so selfish sometimes ...
