What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access will allow me to ensure stability and compatibility for a wider range of systems and focus on expanding features that users need the most. Since a multitude of widget types are supported, I need to figure out which kind of widget are most commonly used and then prioritize further developing those and making them as good as they can be.”

Approximately how long will this software be in Early Access?

“Until late 2019”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will include more widgets and features. We plan add a new modern widget designer
tool and add Steam Workshop support in the full version.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version of RainWidget includes many widgets, online widget gallery support, but you only can uses the notepad to edit HTML/JavaScript/CSS files to create/mod widgets. Everything required for a first release is available and the application should be working well.”

Will this software be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes! The price during Early Access is a little bit lower than the final price to accommodate the additional content and improved overall experience that will be added during the Early Access period. If you purchase the application now, you will not have to pay anything extra after Early Access - you will get all new content and improvements as they are being added now.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The community will help shaping RainWidget through the Steam Forums and built-in feedback methods in the application. The future of RainWidget will add Steam Workshop support and VisualDesigner Tool.

Finally, in case you are experiencing any bugs or problems, I will assist you and work on resolving the issue as soon as possible”
