Just this week alone 3 projects are now cancelled due to platform changes. Some of the largest contributors are now pulling their custom apps and it worries me that this is becoming a trend and that things are going to become crap and nobody is going to create apps because they are constantly making backend changes. I’m not trying to rant or create a post that gets hundreds of reply’s of people complaining about the platform. I really do love ST and I have invested tons of money and more hours trying to learn how to develop and customize my own apps. It’s just rough when you want to sit back and enjoy something and watch your stuff work as it should, only to have your wife ask why is that light on in the boys room at 10:30pm.
I realize that ST has to make a lot of backend changes to make things more secure and lay the groundwork for ST2.0. but they need to remember that the people that helped make them successful need there technology work. If they keep making changes that are breaking apps that filled the void of unofficially approved devices you going to alienate your current user base. I’m not sure where to go from here but i feel there needs to be some sort of heads up of what changes are coming. Honestly I could be mad for nothing and these developers are pulling there apps at the request of ST in-order to bring them into the fold officially
