*REBUTTAL Owner of company: We are the victim of Jamal Does Apps
I started my relationship with the "company" Jodi’s Italian Ice Factory on a good note, I first discussed a business proposition with the son of the said Italian Ice shop, Mr. Jesse Tillman. He was young energetic and ready to indulge his family into the future of applications. But he didn't come with just high energy, he came with a sob story about how they previously paid for an app, probably off of fiverr, and the developer never did the work only showed a preview, letting me now "they've been scorned before" boy does that line get tiring. Anyway, in an effort to prove that I was a competent developer, I made majority of their application, not only showed them previews, but allowed them access to the prototype
version of the application itself. They did pay the start up fee once they got a chance to test out the application. Now once we got into doing the changes, usually I allow about two to three revisions to the application (Google does not let you continously pin up and pull down an app without without eventually charging you). [continued below]....
family eventually went MIA for weeks, I contacted them concerning my payment, I kept getting excuse after excuse, Mr. Brian even felt it was necessary to give me some "business" advice about having more then one client, which would of been irresponsible on my part to do seeing as starting more then one project, in the middle of another may cause confusion in payment, which I'm sure he wanted to say down the line he owed less then what he actually does, but I was persistent in my pursuit to getting my service fee. They came up with a bunch more sob stories about how they had to pay for their stores and apparently getting into a financial law suite, I'm laughing because this is the same family that tried to give me business
advice, I'm glad I didn't follow because then I'd be in their shoes. I believe that they should of been more financially savvy when it comes to pursuing an application with a developer, you don't pay them last, you pay them when they finish your project, and don't stall by trying to add more content and revisions so you don't have to pay, trying to "keep someone busy" with work will only make your bill higher because developers charge by the hour, I was honestly being nice but they felt the need to take my kindness for a weakness and felt because I am a young developer they could take advantage of me, I have a family, I am a hard working person, these people are sharks lying and taking advantage of people. DO NOT DO BUSINESS.
