Hard to believe it’s been nine years since Susie and I created Super Speller to help our son who was struggling with his spelling. Encouraged by the improvement we saw in his spelling we decided to make Super Speller available on the App Store and to continue to improve it over the years. With the experience we gained, we created two additional apps, Goalposts and Terrella, which didn’t breakthrough in the same fashion as Super Speller, but all of our apps had their fans for whom we are so very grateful. We poured our heart and soul into bringing our apps to the world. While we never expected to become App Store tycoons, we hoped to be able to at least offset our costs. The first few years we did that and even a little extra, but the writing has been on the wall for the last couple years. Though this journey has been rewarding in many ways that aren’t financial, we have now passed the point where we’re not really breaking even which is increasingly difficult to justify in these uncertain times.
Given that, Susie and I have made the very difficult decision to wind down Quiet Spark this year and remove our apps from the App Store. That doesn’t mean these apps will disappear from your devices, nor do we plan to disappear. Our intention is to continue to provide the kind of customer support we have prided ourselves on over the years.
We want to thank you all so very much for your support over the years.
Casey & Susie
