Writing a Mac app – for me or for you?

So I want to write a Mac application. Do I write something you readers want or do I write something I want?

For you:

Pros–I’m forced to narrow your choices, work with you to clearly define goals, must meet deadlines.

Cons–I’m writing for you and not me, must meet deadlines, I might hate what you want me to do.

For me:

Pros–I make me happy and can ship with whatever quality that will make me happy.

Cons–I’ll suffer along and not learn and probably stay within my knowledge boundaries.
