We're Crowdfunding on IndieGoGo Back Us

Be a Part of Something Bigger

Everything that we make is 100% open source and developed collaboratively by people from all over the world. Even if you're not a programmer, you can get involved and make a difference.


With your help, we've been able to grow from a small group of passionate volunteers into a tiny company. Every little bit of help is one step closer to hiring another full-time developer.


We’re currently crowdfunding AppCenter, the pay-what-you-want app store, on Indiegogo. By backing us there, you'll be helping us pay for our remote team to get together in person with developers from our community for a week long sprint in Denver, Colorado.
