Finding a new owner for ‘App Map’...

05 May 2015  |  Tags: , ,

UPDATE 2015/05/19: The auction did not exceed its reserve price, so the app has been taken offline and archived.

Just a brief post to mention that App Map, an app that I worked on back in 2012 to map out “what apps people are using nearby”, is currently for sale on Flippa.

Apple's “Apps Near Me” compared with App Map

This predated Apple's own “Near Me” feature that was included in iOS 7 and 8, and supported iOS 4.3 and above. It was a pretty cool project to work on. Now that there are more modern variants in circulation (such as Homescreen.is), I'm hoping to find a new home for it. I am focused on other things so I don't have time to maintain it any longer, and yet I'm also sure that someone could do a lot with its app, code, and data! If it doesn't sell, I may close it down. Not sure yet. Stay tuned.
