Why isn't LogTen Pro Available for Windows (and other platforms)?

Technically… At Coradine our goal is to provide the best possible user experience for pilots, which is why we choose to develop for Apple platforms. Because of this goal, and our belief that Apple devices provide the most reliable and easy to use system available, LogTen Pro leverages powerful frameworks provided solely by the Mac OS X and iOS operating systems.

Philosophically…

We seriously considered developing a Windows version, but ultimately decided it is more important to do what we love. Because of this passion, we can focus on delivering excellence, with pride, rather than simply doing something for the money. Personally, I have spent over 20 years developing software for the Mac, and there is a reason: unparalleled user experience. Developing LogTen Pro for Windows would mean a complete rewrite of the application, taking time and resources away from our primary goal of providing the best possible experience for all of our users, current and future. While I understand that bringing LogTen Pro to Windows could dramatically increase revenue, the cost to the quality of our products, the ability to provide excellent service, the love of our jobs, and the pride we take would ultimately outweigh the monetary gain.

I started Coradine so I could turn my passions into independence, and because the fruits of these passions are recognized and appreciated by our customers I am finally able to do what I enjoy. Endangering these passions by developing for platforms which do not inspire me endangers all that I strive for in Coradine, and that is a sacrifice I will not make.

That might be more than you wanted to know, but I hope you understand. It’s a little like telling a pilot they should become a bus driver because there’s a lot more buses in the world… it may be similar, and it may get you from point A to point B, but it sure isn’t the same!! There’s a reason we fly, and for most of us it’s not just the destination, it’s the journey…
