Codertools was started in 2003 by two software developers who wanted to apply their skills outside of the corporate world. Our first product was called Doodle, which was a Unicode text editor. It was
pretty good but lagged behind the competition and so in 2004 we started again with TotalEdit. By 2005 we learnt that we were better at writing software
than selling it and so chose to make TotalEdit free.
TotalEdit Pro and TotalQuery were created as a means to generate some revenue but so far we continue to run CoderTools at a loss. Today we continue to
make enhancements to our existing products whilst looking at the mobile market. We have begun developing for the Apple iPhone and Google Android
and continue to apply our skills to creating free and pay-for software.
