Uninstall Survey Winner!

amazon.jpgCongratulations to Chris, who won our most recent Uninstall Survey Drawing! As many of you know, when you uninstall one of our products it brings up a quick “Why are you uninstalling?” survey. As a thank you to those of you who take the time to fill this out for us, we draw a name randomly from the list of submitters and give away a $100 Amazon.com gift card. So congrats Chris! Hope you find something fun to buy!

 And on a Product Management note, I love this survey. I learn SO much about the people who are using our product from reading the comments posted in these. To other developers out there, it’s a wonderful way to learn about just what it is your customers want from the product!
