Mobile Smalltalk

  1. I’ve implemented interfaces to API’s I need in the OS but not to everything. Other developers would need probably access to accelerometers, GPS, Internet, cameras and other things. I can’t have a good commercial product without those interfaces and it’s too much work to write these interfaces on speculation.
  2. Too many companies have died trying to provide tools for developers to enhance Smalltalk environments. The market isn’t big enough to justify the effort.
  3. To be honest, software developers make lousy customers. They tend to be very demanding on everything they need and usually don’t like paying money for what they get. They’re used to software development environments being free and open source and don’t want to pay for development and maintenance of their toolset.
  4. I’d rather create fun profitable games than creating development environments for other people to use to create fun profitable games.
