The FerryFriend team is dedicated to providing the app as a public service, completely free of charge and without any advertising. To ensure the continued functionality of all its features, FerryFriend relies on contributions from the community, with these donations being allocated towards covering the technical expenses associated with server maintenance, Apple's store fees, and the thousands of hours of development time that have gone into this app. If you find FerryFriend useful, and can afford a few dollars a month, please consider joining our Patreon, thereby enabling us to sustain the app well into the future.
