Syphon posted...

Good fix. Just follow the steps and you'll have SK running within a few seconds. Cheers team. A good indication of how many people use it I guess..


Syphon posted...

Hey everyone! If you <3 Swift Kit, and use it frequently, help the guys out for keeping this awesome client free to use every day! It would only take 160 random people each month from anywhere in the world to make a tiny USD $0.25 donation to raise the $40. Those who have donated, Thankyou so much! Those who haven't ever donated before, throw in 25 cents to earn some good KARMA points!!! Lets see the monthly goal reach its requirement. Kind Regards, Syphon.
