I have lost the total
there were at least 20,000 downloads until the end of 2004,
not so large number of registered users from all continents.
Considering that Smuggers v1.00 was released only in January
i.e., 4 years after the launch of Psion Series 5 and 3 years after
Psion Series 5MX & Revo, these download statistics seem good
me. The Nokia 92xx version of Smuggers was also released somewhat late,
1.5 years after the Nokia 9210 (market) launch. Now that the Nokia
9500/9300(i) version of Smuggers is released, it is 2 years after
the Nokia 9500 launch.
There were/are some reasons for these
delays : the Psion/Nokia machines were expensive for me when I was
student (I bought in 2000 a Psion Siena 1MB instead of a Psion EPOC
machine), in Brazil sometimes there is a 6-12 month delay for market
launch, delays in the release of OPL for Nokia 9xxx, I have not spare
time to program in OPL as a hobby, etc. The
Smuggers registrations have helped to buy newer machines and develop
Smuggers for new devices, so I thank all registered users of Smuggers.
But now Smuggers v2.00
available for Nokia 9500/9300(i), I have a Psion Revo+ and a
Nokia 9500 to
develop Smuggers, so I hope the current and future versions can be
played and enjoyed a lot by the
Psion and Symbian Series 80 users.
