MyInfo anniversary

Today, MyInfo just turned eight! It’s been a long time, since the first release of MyInfo hit the market on October 29, 1999. The little app back there turned into a complete tool for organizing any kind of information with lots of hard-core fans today.
Those people are the reason why MyInfo survived many other similar products in the years and why it gets better and better with each new release. I want to thank to all of you for the continuing support and for all the praise, suggestions and questions that I get each day on my email.
Talking about this anniversary, let me tell you a little story. Back in 1999, when we first released MyInfo, it was not an instant success. We’ve got a number of downloads, but the sales were low (here is the moment to thank to our first customer, a guy who turned out to be a big visioner – thanks, Wil 🙂 ). That doesn’t mean that there was no interest in MyInfo. Just in the opposite – many people were contacting us on the email with suggestions for little improvements. Well, when we released MyInfo 1.1 with these little (according to us) improvements, the orders started to pour in. With the next versions (1.5 and 1.7) things got even better and we were relieved – MyInfo survived and thrived since!
And this is a good thing. I am happy reading all those emails from people that depend on MyInfo for organizing their lives and businesses!
With each new release MyInfo got better and better and soon we had the recognition of the experts too: Software Industry Awards Foundation nominated us for the Best Business Application in 2003 and Jeremy Wagstaff wrote a column for us at Wall Street Journal Online.
With all that said, I have good news for you. MyInfo just got better. Version 4 is a huge step forward and as an appreciation for your continuing support, we will offer it first exclusively to our current customers. It will be a special, time-limited offer, so check your email tomorrow. You don’t want to miss it 😉
