    Afternoon everybody, i was just wondering - if you could have any application that would save you time and make you money, what would it be? and how much would you be prepared to pay for it?

    The reason im asking is i've got a lot of free time at the moment, and im looking to build a new blackhat application, i was thinking something along the lines of an SE Nuke type program, with auto account creation and auto submission. Obviously my version would be a hell of a lot cheaper, with no monthly subscription (i hate monthly subscriptions) it would be a one off payment, which leads me onto my next question, how much would you honestly pay for a good application with continuous free updates?
    I was thinking if i spent a month or so developing an SE Nuke type application, maby with more features (I've got quite a few in mind) i would sell a license for $300, and that would be a lifetime license, with free lifetime (regular) updates.
    Im fully aware that a major problem with this kind of software is that if the website your trying to automate changes something, you have to change your application to match the changes. Which is something that annoys me when people take a long time to update their software. So id be on the ball with that one.

    Questions, answers, suggestions and everything else is welcome, but please dont just say "LOL id pay $1 for a program that does everything"

    Thanks,
    MSH.

    You may hate the monthly subscription ... but it keeps you motivated as a programmer. Once the hype is over, and you sold the copies.. and there's just a few sales here and there coming in... it's hard to find the motivation to keep up updating the software for a long time... you'll want to move the fuck on from this software as you've changed it million times and there's nothing challenging in it anymore..

    atleast that's what i'd hate the most... have to keep updating a software all the time... and by doing this the project loses the challenge it once was to you.. and then i start to lose motivation... but maybe that's just me :)... i know a monthly subscription would keep me motivated tho

    sry but don't have any idea right now for the perfect blackhat application:p

    I know what you mean about the monthly subscription, its defiantly beneficial to have some kind of residual income from your applications, that's why another idea i had was sell the license for say $200 and then a monthly fee of $20.

    Thanks for your input.

    the 200/20 is a much better idea for both us and you, esp when senuke is what 100-150/month now?
