Hey,

my name is Tibor Kaputa, I'm the creator of Simple Mobile Tools. It is a group of open source Android apps that are focused on having pleasant and consistent user experience, which I always missed in Android. I'm taking care of the apps alone, meaning that I'm doing all the development, marketing, support, UI etc. I started working on them as a side project, but they evolved in a fulltime project by now and it is what I live off. The community is also involved, as from time to time someone helps with some bugfix patch, translations are also done by a handful of awesome volunteers (up to 32 languages per app by now). 

The first 8 apps have been created in 2016, the number has grown to 13 since then. They are perfect for privacy conscious people too, as none of the apps has access to the internet. So even if I wanted to steal some data from your device, I just couldn't do it, as there is no way of sending it to myself :) Since there are no ads, there are no marketing companies tracking you either. You won't find useless permissions either, each permission makes perfect sense and it is requested only on appropriate user action. What you will find is consistent behaviour across all apps, familiar icons, elements, actions or whole screens.

Since the apps are open source, anyone can read the actual source code and so they can be a great source of sample code for other Android developers, as I often get inspiration from other open source projects too. All apps are fully written in Kotlin, which makes this resource even more valuable.

You can read more about the reasons of me creating the apps here.

The apps reached unbelievable 5 million downloads in the first 2 years of the existence, you can read more info about the journey here.

If you become a patron, you will be able to read a weekly handpicked interesting fact about one of the apps. I'm not yet sure how else could I reward my patrons as the apps are already free, I respond to every email and Google Play feedback (if needed) as soon as possible and I don't want to go on the way of people buying features. I'm working on features that are requested by the most people so that I can give the most value. Let me know what would you want from me at [email protected] and I'll see what I can do for you :)

Thanks
