We’re very happy to announce that we’ve formed a new jointly owned company, Skyfire Services LLC, with Stephen from The Photographer's Ephemeris to take Skyfire forward.
Until now, The Photographer's Ephemeris had licensed the right to market and distribute Skyfire. While that worked well, we both felt that we’d be in a better position to do more with Skyfire if we joined forces and created a new company.
It’s taken a while to get there for a whole bunch of reasons (some business, some personal), but we’re happy to announce that the new company is now up and running.
Our first task is to release a beta of Skyfire for Android. While we ran a beta of Skyfire within TPE for Android last year, this will be a new standalone app from the new company. You’ll be able to subscribe in the new app, and the plan is to make the functionality available in TPE for Android as well, so you can choose which app you prefer to view it in.
We’ll be putting out a call for testers as soon as the beta is finalized via the Skyfire Mailing list (scroll down the page to sign up).
We’re excited to be able to move forward with Skyfire and at last start reaching other platforms, new territories and new features.
