So I just installed the #Mast app on iOS. I bought it a while back, but I don’t really use it.
I installed it only to find that to do pretty much anything, you need to pay MORE for “Mast Pro”. I went to the contact page to see if that’s accurate, given I’ve already paid for the app, only to find that the only contact methods listed are Twitter and Email.

If you cannot support us directly, supporting these projects is a good way to help us on the long run!
Wacom drawing tablets track the name of every application that you open
> The first is a principled fuck you. I don’t care whether anything materially bad will or won’t happen as a consequence of Wacom taking this data from me. I simply resent the fact that they’re doing it.
