Even if Marvin went open source, there's no way to load it on an Apple device since it not in the app store.

But would Apple accept it given they once dropped it? If Apple was to accept it, you would fix have to fix all of the known bugs before you could publish it.

Apple doesn't care. I'll fix the bugs.

Apple likely dropped it because it hadn't received updates for too long.

I also think too many reports of bugs and as you said, not being updated.

If Apple actually dropped apps just because of bug reports….then there wouldn’t be a single app in the store…

It's not just bugs, but uncorrected bugs. Marvin was abandoned and left to rot.

Uncorrected bugs is what we are talking about....

There isn't a single perfect app on the app store.

Well, speaking as the person who started this thread in June 2023, I can say that it would be awesome if someone could take it over. I would happily pay again, or even use a subscription model to keep it afloat. I use Mapleread now, which is great, but there is something about Marvin….
