Getting Feedback

According to Kristian Klausen my app has been installed and updated tens of thousands of times. I have received absolutely no feedback about it. Phew! What a relief, no complaints! My app is perfect!

Seriously though, this is a bit of a worry, as it does matter to me what users think. They might have started it once, been completely mystified about what it was for or how to use it, then forgotten all about it. I have done just that with many other applications.

I have put a lot of effort into trying to make the app easy to use - I wrote it for my own use. I have also tried to make it easy to use for other users, but I realise that it won’t be as obvious to them how it works as it is to me. I have no idea if anyone has found a bug, or what they would like to change or to see in future versions.

I had an email address on an early version and the latest has an entry for “Webpage” in “About”, this is just the GitHub repository though and bugs/comments are made by clicking the “Issues” tab - not at all easy to use.

What are the best options for gathering user feedback? An email address? A webpage? (I’m not keen on building or paying for a website.) Something like a subgroup/subtopic of a forum seems like a good idea. (Any suggestions?) How about Flathub having something on Flathub Discourse?
