Nuvola Player in October 2016 - Report for Patrons

Written for Nuvola Player by Jiří Janoušek on 2016-11-07

This is my monthly report for generous patrons who contributed €171.44 to support the development of Nuvola Player in September 2016. Thanks to them, I put aside €6 for the Tiliado.eu VPS hosting and spent over 12 hours working on four tasks, which are listed bellow with a few comments, so my reward was €13.12 per hour. However, I didn't count support requests which were dealt with for free. https://tiliado.eu/nuvolaplayer/funding/tasks/201610/

You can support my work on Nuvola Player via PayPal, Gratipay, Patreon, Flattr or Bitcoin. Let's make Nuvola Player more awesome! https://tiliado.eu/nuvolaplayer/funding/

Thank you!
