Triggertrap Open Sources Its Mobile Apps Days After Its Hardware

Following the winding down of its business, Triggertrap has followed through on its promise to open-source its mobile apps and hardware. This could mean that the product will live on, despite Triggertrap’s demise.

The Mobile Dongle was open-sourced last month, allowing its customers to build their own Triggertrap hardware. The dongle is just one part of the system – the other is the mobile applications.

While the apps are still available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, the company will no longer maintain them. This means that they are liable to break in the future, as Apple and Google release updates to iOS and Android.

By making the source code public, Triggertrap hopes that the open-source community will continue to keep the apps working in to the future.

Triggertrap’s former CTO Ross Gibson has decided to continue developing the iOS app in his own time, and any contributions to the software will be published to the Apple App Store by him for the foreseeable future.

As of the time of writing, Triggertrap has not found anyone to continue to maintain the Android software.

If you’d like to help with the ongoing development of the apps, you can find the source code on Github: Triggertrap iOS and Triggertrap Android.
