Hey everybody,

First of all a big thanks to William for starting this fundraiser! I'd love to do a proper touchscreen-suitable version of Tiled but so far I was mainly just dreaming about this. With your support I can make this feature a priority and I now plan to work on this in the coming months and will keep you updated on the progress.

So far I have received the 10 euro from cdoty and 370 from WIlliam. That's a great start and there seem to be more people interested in donating, so this shows a good amount of interest in a mobile/tablet version of Tiled!

I want to apologize for my silence here and still not having the site updated. I'm really busy right now because I will be moving with my family to a new apartment by the end of June (it's next week), and until then there is still a lot of renovation work to be done as well as packing and then the actual move. When this is over I expect to have more time again of course, but it's still not much with a full time job and family as well.

While this fundraiser helps kickstart a new version of Tiled that is suitable for mobile/tablet, in the long term I'm looking for ways to free up more time for Tiled development. To that end I plan to set up a Patreon page as was done for OGA with the aim of raising enough money each month to allow me to work one full day a week on Tiled (or maybe one full week a month). I hope with enough visiblity this approach could succeed.

Btw, I don't really believe in relying on Qt's cross-platform capabilities to port the current UI over to a phone/tablet. While this would work fine on laptops with touchscreen, I personally would do a new UI from scratch based on Qt Quick that is focused entirely on being as usable as possible on a mobile phone or tablet.

arikel, this isn't the appropriate channel to vent frustration about a work that you think was inappropriately picked up by The Mana World as GPL-compatible content. Please contact somebody involved in TMW content development if there are any issues and I'm sure they can be quickly resolved.
