Starlight Apps LLP Open Sources Linkeeper and snApp

Today, on 1st June 2024, Starlight Apps LLP celebrates its one year anniversary since it first launched to the public. The past year for us has been incredible, with users loving both our apps, Linkeeper and snApp. We’ve also been featured by many websites, blogs, and YouTube videos, as well as by Apple. To celebrate this outstanding journey in our first year of operation, it is with great pleasure and excitement that we’re announcing that both our apps will now be open sourced.

The journey of developing Linkeeper and snApp has been one of dedication, creativity, and relentless problem-solving. Open-sourcing these apps is our way of sharing the knowledge and solutions we've developed along the way. We hope that by doing so, we can help other developers overcome similar challenges and inspire new ideas and advancements in app development. We can’t wait for other developers to be able to learn from our progress with Linkeeper and snApp, and we’re also excited to have passionate developers from around the world contributing to our repositories. We’ll be open to accepting pull requests and feature requests all the time.

“Ever since I embarked on building Linkeeper over two years ago, followed by snApp last year, various open-source projects have provided invaluable solutions to the challenges I encountered along the way. However, there were instances when I couldn't find any existing solutions on the internet, forcing me to spend countless hours meticulously figuring out how to implement specific features independently. Today, with the announcement of open-sourcing these applications, I hope that they can serve as a valuable resource for others to learn from, just as I benefited from exploring other open-source projects during my learning journey. For me, this is a way to give back to the community that has supported me, and it only marks the beginning of my efforts to do so.” shared Om Chachad, Chief Software Developer.

Over the last year, both our apps have also been incredibly successful in general, accumulating over 27K users. Earlier this year, we had the chance to build a native visionOS version for Linkeeper, and we were fortunate enough to have been featured by Apple on the visionOS App Store. This was an incredibly exciting thing to experience for us, and we couldn’t be more excited for the future of our apps. Linkeeper was featured on the What’s New section of the App Store for a few weeks in late February to mid-March, and continues to be featured on the visionOS home page and also on the list of best utilities for Spatial Computing. Here’s what Apple had to say about Linkeeper:

As we move forward, we are excited about the endless possibilities that the future holds. We remain committed to improving our apps, engaging with our users, and contributing to the open-source community. We can’t wait to see what amazing things we can accomplish together as a community in the coming years.

Stay tuned for more announcements about an innovative new app coming later this month.
