Who is making these apps? Is there a greedy company producing this stuff? Nope, I am a flight simmer, just like you. I did use to fly a lot - recently I don't fly that often since I started RemoteFlight, but still. I do most of my flights online on VATSIM flying for Czech Airlines Virtual, which is another project that I am active at. Currently crossing skies with the gorgeous PMDG NGX. If you're lucky, you can also meet at FlyBoys at Klasterec nad Ohri, Czech Republic, where they have a fairly astonishing Boeing 737 cockpit simulator.
I started RemoteFlight because I felt there should be flight-simming apps done differently, pleasant to look at and control - simple yet powerful apps, that just work. Apps that you can show your friends and say: Hey, this looks just like the real thing! That's what I am trying to achieve. If you like them, please let me know. Tell your friends, community. Spread the word. Thanks :)
