today's software are unnecessarily complex. corporate software are loaded with analytics and other data collections which are
privacy intrusive. more advanced and powerful technology coming out on a daily basis is letting people exploit it by making unneccessary bloatware.
that's a really bad thing - for privacy, environment, security, etc. it aims for some common goals. they are heavily inspired by
goals of some other minimalist software communities(suckless, for example). software
developed by biotstoiq tries to be as minimal as possible while being beginner-friendly.
some of the philosophies of biotstoiq are:
- minimalism as the core: not just visual minimalism, but technical minimalism too.
- worse is better: don't be feature-creep.
- less is more: having less, in some cases, can be equal to having more. stick with bare necessities and be frugal.
- function over fashion: UI designs based on usefullness and efficiency instead of eye-candyness.
- KISS(Keep it simple, stupid)
- as the wise Wade Wilson once said, "Maximum Efficiency".
how does biotstoiq make profit?
there are mainly four ways in which developers make money from their apps:
- money from purchasing software,
- in-app purchases(eg. give a demo/trial version and pay for the full version).
biotstoiq's apps don't generate any revenue on it's own. it relies on donations. that is why it has a donations page.
