We want to give you a heads up about a few changes that we are making to our Marketplace. We recently conducted an audit of our marketplace apps looking for two things: SmartApps that are unstable or do not run efficiently and SmartApps that duplicate functionality within the SmartThings app.
The results of this review ended with a list of SmartApps we have regrettably decided to remove from the Marketplace. This decision is not one we wanted to make, however, unfortunately, it needed to be done so that our customers can have the best experience possible. The SmartApps listed in the above link will be delisted on Jul 5, 2017.
We have emailed every customer who has one of these SmartApps installed and wanted to do the same for the app developer. Unfortunately, we don’t have a great way of tracking our developer accounts (that’s on us), so we are posting the notification here, too.
To the developers, we don’t want to leave you hanging. We will allow you to resubmit your SmartApp for testing by our QA team. If the SmartApp passes our QA testing (This will involve a full functionality test and a decision on whether it still duplicates functionality.), it will be relisted in the Marketplace. If you wish to submit your app, please do so by July 21, 2017. To submit, please send me a private message, and I will help you go through the resubmission process.
We thank you in advance for your understanding and hope to work with you in the future to create more meaningful experiences for our customers!
