One day Kurt was playing No Man's Sky and wanted to plan out what farmable resources he should have at a new base, he thought that it would be easier to download an app from the Play/App Store than switch between the No Man's Sky wiki and the game. He found an app that contained all the content he wanted but had a pay wall, annoyed he decided to make an app that would be free for everyone to use. It was also a great excuse to play a bit with Flutter app development.
Over time users of the Apps have joined the Discord and become part of the Assistant Apps team (formerly known as "AssistantNMS"-team). Such as Sphynxcolt, Vapour38 and Blend3rman. Hopefully more will join as the apps attract more users. The apps will continue to be improved upon, and anyone is free to contribute to its development!
