    You may wanna check your internet settings on your switch if you are in 3.0.0, at some point you lose the connection to your local router.
    I just had to reconnect to it and then I was OK.

    Although this sounds like l good idea in the first place it might become pointless once Atmosphère is out but who knows.

    Doesn't concern you.
    I would prefer if my homebrews weren't used in this. Simply because I like to keep track of downloads and what not. Unless you guys can redirect to the Github's latest release link or something and instead of re-uploading every single release. Also my name is Joel16, capital J, not 'joel16' lol.

    Appstore, what a complete garbage name. This will be dead by 2019.

    The app store master is based on nop90's old sdl1 port which has been removed but not yet replaced. Pacman only has an SDL2 package. Ironically, I was originally using SDL2 but switched to SDL1 since that was the only package available at the time.

    I made a new branch for the SDL2 port here: https://github.com/vgmoose/appstorenx/tree/sdl2 (also contains an updated readme for what to install with Pacman). However... it's not drawing graphics/text yet (even on PC, it's not) and I haven't had time to investigate why it's not working. If you're going to move forward, I would recommend helping getting the SDL2 port working, as that's a better solution than using SDL1 (plus libtransistor also supports SDL2).

    For more info see this issue: https://github.com/vgmoose/appstorenx/issues/6 If you do end up using the old sdl1 code, you might have to downgrade the libnx/devkitA64 versions as well.

    I'm interested in this, but I feel like it may not be necessary in the future. Which apps do you know don't work on the latest firmware? (and we can make a note of it, or try to update them).

    We can't do this because unless the binaries are rehosted, the developer might take down the download. In addition to this, the developer would also have to package their app in a compatible format for unpacking and updating on the Switch. You can see the wiki page here for more on why I use the format I use: https://github.com/vgmoose/get/wiki/Overview-&-Glossary

    If you really want the apps removed we can remove it out of respect, but since you're releasing an open source GPLv3 app I would wonder why this should be an issue </3. Of course I understand the desire to have download tracking, and that is something we are also hoping to provide soon. If you want them gone, they're gone. I'd ask that you'd read this post first though. (also as for your name, we got the app off your github where your name is lowercase (but can certainly fix that)).

    Wii U app store has been running strong 2 years. I don't plan on going anywhere any time soon, and even if I do go somewhere, all of the code is completely open source and can be picked up by anyone else at any given time. <3

    Is it safe to connect to internet while running HB? Could you get banned by nintendo with internet connection active?

    that's the point, it's NOT safe using switch freeshop. My thought that to prevent Switch from nintendo's ban hammer is not connect it to the internet at all. And one more reason to create a Freeshop for pc version instead of this.

    Then why we should use this appstore? to get us screwed as much as possible?

    appstore works as web front end also... if your concerned over connecting to the net .. then use a PC and the web version.

    Are you writing the files using a mac? I had a similar issue when writing the sdcard files with my mac. It worked when I switched to PC. This was on exFAT.
