Sadly, we must announce the retirement of SMAPP.

Unfortunately, we have not had the time, nor the resources, to update SMAPP and port it over for Android.

But that in no way means we don’t still value education. That has commitment has never wavered.

We have put our focus into MUSE ( and developing resources that help you use that. We believe that MUSE will help far more people, and in a far stronger way, so that’s we’ve decided to focus.

We’re so, so glad you all enjoyed the app as much you did. And we have more exciting education initiatives on the horizon. Please stay in touch.

  • cough cough… Android please :-)

  • Marco Alvarado says:

    What happend with the app??? I can’t download it anymore

    • Sorry Marco, Apple timed it out as we didn’t have any updates so they just automatically pulled it down.


      • Marcin Rusinowski says:

        maybe it’s possible to convert it to mobile app or any other form of existing. or you need developer to continue it / update. it was great little thing that helps. crowd funding?

        • ya, ideally we’d need to just make it open source or something so that others could develop and build on it. we certainly aren’t opposed to that. we just don’t have the room to focus on it right now.

  • Travis Johansen says:

    Hi Patrick, how’s the porting to Android going? It’s been a couple of years :)
    “we’ll be contracting out the work of porting it over”

    • Hey Travis,
      Sadly we have retired SMAPP as we haven’t had the time and resources to update it an port it over for Android. We have put our focus into MUSE ( and building tools that help you use that. We believe that will help far more people, and in a far stronger way, so that’s where we are focusing.
      Sorry to disappoint.

  • Tushar Joneja says:

    It would be really great to have SMAPP available in some form (such as a web app that can be accessed from the browser, if not a fully featured native app on the App Store/ Google Play Store). While MUSE is a fantastic resource for developing storytelling skills, coupled with SMAPP and the KNOW guide, it’s invaluable and a one-stop-shop solution for storytellers who use film as the medium to convey their stories.

    I hope SMAPP makes its comeback soon!

  • chris says:

    at the cost of sounding insensitive… did any of you read the article AT ALL? i loved SMAPP too folks, but this article clearly says it’s gone. it’s not being ported to android and it’s not being updated. it’s retired and not coming back.
