The Mac market

Now and then we get asked if we have native Mac solutions. Sadly, the answer is no.

We are Mac users and we’d love to develop native Mac applications, but the ratio of Mac to Windows queries is something like 30+ to none.

Then there are options like Boot Camp, Parallels, VMWare and VirtualBox which let you run full blown Windows on your Mac. So currently not much sense to target the Mac natively. We already have a full time job just making sure that the software keeps pace with the changes that constantly take place.

Much the same applies to Linux.

Smart phones are a bit different. Currently, smart phones won’t compete with computer based solutions when it comes to highly competitive situations. However, not everything is super competitive, and the benefit of that mobility will have advantages in some cases.
