    Do you own a modded Switch or a Wii U? Would you like to get your homebrew directly to your console? If you answered yes to both questions then you most likely already know about @vgmoose and Team 4TU's Homebrew App Store and if not, it's a great time to give it a shot!

    The new version 2.1 is available for both of the aforementioned consoles and delivers a good number of improvements. For starters, you can expect faster downloads as well as a new miscellaneous category for homebrew apps, while platform-specific Switch additions include a smoother UI thanks to hardware accelerated rendering, a new category dedicated to themes (with the ability to install them once downloaded) and being able to launch NROs after installing them. Of course, there are also several Wii U-specific improvements as well: a search function has been added, more details are available for each package, the code was synced with the Switch version of the hb-appstore (so you'll be able to enjoy some features and enhancements perviously exclusive to that version) and a few others.

    Those are just some of the highlights - if you're interested in reading about all that's available in this version, the full changelog is available below!

    Github page says:

    Install a precompiled Buck, and precompiled Buckaroo for your platform

    Clicking on them just lead to source code page which has packages for Linux... an exe installer for Windows?

    I had to revert to my clean nand, can someone tell me if it still uses the same music from like on the Wii U?
    Nice work, I loved it on the Wii U, it's good to see it coming back on the Switch ♥

    I been wondering this for awhile, will since the app first released, I can’t seem to figure this out when I use the app is there a way to exit the app without going to the switch home menu, want to know if it’s possible to exit back to homebrew browser.
