Bye bye from ReadCast 👋
Hey! I'm Duncan and I'm the maker of ReadCast, a platform that lets you convert articles from around the web into your own personal podcast.
I launched ReadCast little over a year ago now, in March 2019. It was my first propper online thing and it earned me the first money I ever got from the internet.
Since launch, I've fixed alot of bugs, redesigned the app a few times and introduced Subscriptions, an automated way of saving articles into your account.
Recently ReadCast's revenue has been declining and a couple of customers have been leaving a month. To be honest, I don't blame them. There's loads of issues with how we grab website content, how the audio gets processed, the list goes on.
I've also not been able to dedicate as much time as it needs for things like support and maintainence due to me moving from being self-employed to a full-time job at an agency.
So for the time being I've closed down signups for new customers. Existing customers will still be able to use the service for as long as they'd like.
It's been a great journey, hopefully one I'll pick up again one day.
