Thanks, Nostrich. MacHeist’s founders donated about $160,000 to charity, gave the application developers $5,000-10,000 each (a flat rate, not a percentage of sales), and kept about $385,000 for themselves.
I paid for MacHeist in good faith that I’d be contributing directly to all of the developers at a discounted rate for some charitable purpose.
MacHeist is a for-profit scam disguised as a developer-friendly charity event.
That’s sickening, and the MacHeist staff should be ashamed of themselves.
They’re not. Instead, they’re doing it again.
