The 2014 Panic Report

Cabel Sasser of longtime Mac and iOS software developer Panic recaps 2014 and reports some good news:

Panic is a multi-million dollar business that has turned a profit for 17 years straight. It just hit me, typing those words, that that’s a pretty insane thing to be able to say. (And, sure, we barely qualify). Believe me, I know it won’t last forever — but wow, what a kind of crazy deal.

This is a great look into the business of software, from revenue challenges to technology decisions to problematic issues regarding Apple’s App Store policies.
