About the Dumb Store

We don't have smartphones. But we still want to pull information from the Internet on our dumb phones.

The Dumb Store is a demonstration of what can be done using dumb phones. It's an exploration in resisting planned obsolescence and using current technology to its fullest capacity.

The Dumb Store will be an open platform for others to submit their dumbphone-compatible apps.

We're excited for people to use it and make apps. Let us know if you have questions.

For press inquiries, please email us.
