Refund Coming

Posted by Scott Neidich (Creator)

Appubator, the company that was making Sarah and asked me to create this project on Kickstarter, is getting shut down. Sarah has been submitted multiple times to Apple, and keeps getting rejected. For these reasons, this project has failed.

But unlike so many companies we see on the news who fire their leadership and give them enormous bonuses, I am not getting any money out of this.

I have enquired with Amazon Payments how to issue a refund to everyone, and as soon as possible, you will be refunded. Be on the lookout for another update from me in the event I need you to do anything in order to process a refund. I hope to have refunds out by the end of the week, but am not sure yet what is required for the refund process.

The future of the project: I intend to get all files relating to this project from Appubator and upload them to some open source website for anyone who wants to use it. I will post a link when I do.

I truly appreciate all your support, and its a shame that this project did not go as we all hoped it would.

      Sorry to hear Scott, like others have said though this is just a part of being an entrepreneur. I am curious too as to what the reason it was not successful?

      Out of curiosity, did Appubator explain what the problem was?

      No worries Scott...for what it is worth, this happens all of the time. In the world of entrepreneurship, sometimes, the dragon wins.

      Real shame it didn't work out, hopefully Open Sourcing it goes well.
