The app ecosystem is full of walled gardens. AppURL breaks through them, expanding the open web to encompass apps by broadening the power of http URLs. No one owns a centralized AppURL server or database.

  • Anyone can build an AppURL client.
  • Anyone can make their app accessibile to AppURL clients by hosting an appurl.json file at their domain.

The AppURL Initiative has a growing list of supporting organizations. Please contact us about joining.
