New Indiegogo: crowd-fund missing features

Hei Sailors,

here's a way to mitigate financial troubles:

  1. Make a list of all the (larger) missing features you're working on
  2. Take your devs' time estimates, triple those (for minimizing risk), multiply by dev income, resulting in a price per feature (prices will be hefty, but bear with me)
  3. Put all of those features on sale on Indiegogo

So people can vote with their wallets on whether Jolla (as a company) will make it, as well as on how SFOS will develop in the future. After those features have been paid and implemented, make them free for all (open source ALL the things!).

I believe people are ready to pay for their most loved feature, and I think the Jolla community is large enough to keep you guys afloat. Give it a shot, Sailors!

(I'm aware of the fact that this question somewhat mimics To my defense I'd like to state that this question is more refined.)

If someone wants to crowdfund something i would prefer it to be apps. Thats what is missing mostly.

@ApB good point; however, the platform lacks essential features, too; Copy+Paste etc... Maybe start multiple indiegogos?

Can't tell. TBH i don't know in which part of the stack the feature needs to be. Ie. if it is in the FOSS part you can make a bounty. If it is in the closed stuff you need jolla to do it and they have other priorities and bigger issues to solve.

It doesn't really matter if its apps or core features, this suggestion would work for both.
