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 contributor and tackling even more ambitious problems.


We’re currently crowdfunding AppCenter for everyone 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.
