Shukofukurou (Mac App Store version)
You can donate through the tip-jar feature. To do this, go to Shukofukurou > Leave a Tip. Click the desired amount you want to donate. The tip will be done as an in-app purchase.
While our applications are open source, it costs money and time to develop Shukofukurou and Hachidori. You may see a reminder dialog when you launch the program or certain features exclusive to users who donated. However, core functionality will be unrestricted. If you want to help support the development of Shukofukurou and Hachidori, consider purchasing a donation license. The license allows updates for the current version (e.g .2.x) on multiple Macs for Shukofukurou. Licenses for Hachidori are lifetime licenses and good for all future updates.
Any proceeds will only be used to cover development costs (Apple Developer Program, hosting and domain names). Here is the breakdown for transparency:
- Apple Developer Program – $105.56 a year – 8.80 a month
- Domain Name and Hosting (to host this site and other REST services used by our apps) – $8.08 a month.
Without these, we will have to discontinue development and we rely on donations to cover these costs. The current fundraising goal is below:
Note that a donation of more than $5 will grant you multiple licenses. For Hachidori, $3. Licenses are eligable for future updates, including major versions and do not expire.
