Kiwi closing, MailCore open

Ronge: “With talk of email clients in the air, I started seriously thinking about making Kiwi closed source, something I have been considering for 6 months.”

Whether or not Kiwi is closed or open doesn’t matter much to me personally—what I want is a great email app, and I’m certainly willing to pay for it.

(To be clear: I’m a proponent of open source. But I don’t think every app has to be open source.)
