First, I’d like to say thank you for your continued support of Dropsource! 2019 has been an exciting and crazy year for Dropsource so far, and I hope this post illustrates what we have been up to as a company and where we are going.
Throughout the lifetime of Dropsource, we have seen two types of customers. Individuals who want to use the DIY platform to build their app, or organizations who love the idea of a DIY platform but need the expertise of the Dropsource team to bring their ideas to life.
As of recently, we have been seeing a lot of success leveraging the Dropsource technology to professionally build applications for our clients. We have made this a more prominent offering in our messaging on the website and have made a more clear distinction between our services offering and our platform offering. To be clear, Dropsource is not becoming exclusively a development agency. We are simply beefing up our development services offering as we are very good at quickly and affordably building apps for our clients.
As for the current Dropsource platform, we have learned a ton over the last few years watching our community use the product. It has been incredible to see the apps you have built! With that said, we have been quietly working on the next generation of Dropsource throughout 2019 and we are very excited about it!
Without getting into all of the details because we are not quite ready to go public with a detailed announcement on what is to come, I can give a sneak peak.
We have been working on a completely new product that focuses on building cross-platform apps using the Flutter framework. We believe Flutter is a huge step forward in mobile technology and we believe we have an opportunity to be a part of that growth and make app development even more accessible to organizations and individuals alike by using our product. We will be making more official announcements in the coming weeks and months containing more information about this new product direction.
Now, what does this mean for our existing Dropsource platform?
The current Dropsource platform is not going anywhere.
Our team will still be working the forum with support, keeping your apps up to date and compliant with the latest App Store rules, and making sure the platform continues running and functioning as expected.
However, we are still a small team and are currently devoting the majority of our product resources towards building out the new product. We do not have any major upcoming releases for the existing Dropsource platform, at least for the foreseeable future.
We are excited and optimistic about the future of Dropsource! We are eager to show everyone what we have been working on and think it will be a very welcome addition to the app development space.
That’s all for now, but please stay tuned for more updates on what we’re cooking up for you.
