To our users,
We have made the difficult decision to shut down RetailBox after almost four years of development and two years on the App Store.
RetailBox started as a hobby project to recreate the demo experience found in Apple Stores. Now, almost four years later, the project has grown to a scale previously unimaginable. RetailBox debuted on the App Store in 2019 to much acclaim, climbing to the top charts. Two years later, we’ve curated a vast selection of over 200 beautiful screen savers from around the world, including content in 4K HDR, and have made many refinements to the in-app experience along the way.
Unfortunately, despite RetailBox’s success, we’ve faced numerous challenges over the last year. RetailBox has always remained a hobby project for us, but now we’re finding it difficult to put in the time and financial support necessary to continue maintaining the app. In light of this, we’ve decided to delist RetailBox from the App Store starting today, and shut down our servers in November. Current RetailBox users can continue using the app until that time, and will be able to play any downloaded content for the foreseeable future as long as they keep the app installed. If you’ve purchased RetailBox within the last month, please contact us if you’d like a refund.
Whether you’ve had RetailBox since its TestFlight days, or you found us more recently, we want to extend our deepest gratitude for your support. Working on RetailBox has been a life-changing experience for us, and we hope it’s brought you some joy, too. On to something new!
