We at SparkLabs take pride in developing software that our users love. We believe that high quality software is just part of the equation for developing great apps: operating under a sustainable business model that respects our customers is just as important.
SparkLabs is entirely funded by sales of our software: this means we only answer to you, our customer. We've never taken outside investment, nor do our apps use disreputable monetisation or ad-supported revenue models. Because of this you know we'll always focus on providing the best user experience with our software and placing a strong emphasis on user security and privacy.
Each app you buy helps us develop a great user experience and develop new features, while also helping to ensure we can keep doing what we love.

However modern networks are incredibly complex, and maintaining the security and privacy of your data in such an environment can be highly demanding. Our mission at SparkLabs is to develop software that helps harness this power in an intuitive way for all skill levels.
