Nuvola Apps
Cloud music integration for your Linux desktop

Fundraiser March 2016

This is my monthly report for generous patrons who contributed €170.52 to support development of Nuvola Player in March 2016. Thanks to them, I renewed domain for €5.12 and spent 13.12 hours working on three tasks, which are listed bellow with a few comments, so my reward was €12.6 per hour.

My dream is to work as an independent open source developer on software for all users around the world. Software for you. You can support my work on Nuvola Player via PayPal, Gratipay, Patreon, Flattr or Bitcoin. Let's make Nuvola Player more awesome!

Thank you!
