      A bit torn by this one ... the developer seems genuine enough, hoping to turn the app into a full time business via Proteon. On the other hand, there are the malware alerts from 15 different scanners on VirusTotal, see: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/8c89913809b692dc8757ac80b406f333ef9fb0f2a1d5ef9323d9d0ad52df59ac/detection ... the developer does warn there will be detections but the variety of malware names this attracts is disconcerting, to say the least. Again, the developer promises to open source the app, but is holding out for more public funding before he does so. I'd suggest that developers might find more joy open sourcing first, and then asking for update pay.
