Hey all (and thanks @ericwillis). So I was an early user of Launchkit. With more than 50 apps at the time the Screenshot builder was a lifesaver for time. And as @mulligan released new options, I became an early user and beta tester for some of them. So when Google bought Cluster, my first thought was "Great, now I have to find replacements for all of this." But since Launchkit was open sourced, we started digging into it and decided to bring it back, not just for ourselves, but for the other Launchkit users that wanted to keep using it. So in the Screenshot Builder, we've added horizontal screenshots. We should also have a tool done (hopefully today/tomorrow) that if you want to move your existing assets from LaunchKit to us (screenshots and websites) you can do it automatically.. If you're interested in that, let me know in the comments and we'll get it for you. Next up are a few other beta services that hadn't been completely launched by Launchkit: Sales Reporter - Apple changed something and it broke from last year. We're fixing it and then expanding the number of ways you can have your sales and reviews sent to you (Hipchat, FB Messanger, etc) SuperUser - Track your best users and give incentives to the users that are "close" to being a super user. Cloud Config - change settings in the code remotely and live Onboarding screens - also something you can edit and publish live Enterprise websites - need lots of single page website landing pages like we do? Pay one price and get a big discount Release Notes - (onboarding screen for each new release) Just as a tip for devs with competitive apps - you can use the Review Monitor to track your competition's reviews as well. Right now its free, but we'll be putting a cap on the number of apps you can track free (probably 5) and then a small charge monthly for all you can eat. Product Hunter discount - PH50off for two months pro service half off. Thanks again and let me know if you have questions, suggestions or the like.

@justawebguy Let me know what you think.

@sacbookreviewer oh, nooo. It's copy past of launchkit source code.
Ross Rojek@sacbookreviewer · CTO, GoLocalApps.com, Apptoolkit.io
@sharifulin No its not. We used their open source, yes, and I stated that. But what they open sourced wasn't designed for front facing client use. And we had to do a number of customizations along the way, including adding in horizontal screenshots. While I appreciate you promoting your own tool (and one that we haven't added in yet), don't go just throwing shade off the bat. A lot of work has gone into this, well beyond a copy/paste of the launchkit code. Additionally we let @mulligan and team know we were working on this and setting it up as an alternative to Launchkit once it was shut down in July.

@sacbookreviewer Thanks for your reply. Now your landing page is full copy of LK and it's my concern. Horizontal screenshots is good feature.

@sacbookreviewer @ericwillis @mulligan So excited to see this continue on. Huge fan of Launchkit from the earliest days. Very happy to see sales reporter come back to life!
Ross Rojek@sacbookreviewer · CTO, GoLocalApps.com, Apptoolkit.io
@rumford Let me know as you play with our version any suggestions or comments you have. Apple update the API so the Sales Reporter died, but we're going to fix it. Downside to how Apple manages their API means you're constantly checking for breaks.

So what was it like going through the code and making it yours?

@sacbookreviewer · CTO, GoLocalApps.com, Apptoolkit.io
@lemansunemarque Working in someone else's code is always odd. But we found some hidden stuff they'd been working on and never released, so that's now on the dev list
Rodney Rumford@rumford · Co-founder of HipGif & Product Manager
@sacbookreviewer @lemansunemarque now you have my curiosity peaked. ;)
