Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the foobar2000 mobile fundraiser.

Due to the amounts contributed being significantly below our original plan, we decided to let the fundraiser run for another month. We hope we can deliver a better product this way, with features closer to what we originally intended. Stay tuned for further updates.

2014-04-14

First, a big thank you to everyone who supported the foobar2000 mobile project so far.

The foobar2000 mobile entry has been removed from kickstarter.com due to low popularity - only about 0.1% of the visitors actually supporting the project rather than the 1% we were hoping for; at this rate, donations made via kickstarter.com would never reach us as the lowest goal would not be hit.

You can still support the project via our page directly - mobile.foobar2000.com. In case the lowest goal isn't met, we'll still try to deliver a product that satisfies all of those who did support us; just with fewer features than we were originally hoping to.

---

Please keep in mind that foobar2000 has always put its userbase before profit- we've turned down every offer of including ad-ware with the installer so far, and will continue to do so regardless of other factors.
