App Store: Sell Apps to Tidbyt Users

I would love to be able to develop a little app, and then sell it to Tidbyt users in a kind of app store. That would be amazing and it would keep a continuing revenue stream for Tidbyt.

What do you think?


Hey @fargonaut! Having the ability to publish and share apps with other users is very high on our roadmap. We haven’t discussed having those apps be paid, though it’s something we could consider.

There’s a lot of financial and legal complications around setting up a paid store, so we’d have to figure those out. That’s not to say we wouldn’t do it, but it’s going to take a lot of thing.

A simpler model that we’ll definitely support is if you build a paid service — things like Slack, Spotify, etc. — and then have a Tidbyt app that’s offered as a feature to your subscribers.
