Sunsetting Android Debugger SDK

As we continue to navigate the evolving landscape of web and mobile development tools, our mission at Requestly remains unchanged: to deliver the most impactful and user-centric solutions to our developer community. This journey, however, requires us to regularly evaluate our suite of features and make strategic decisions to align with our vision and resources. Today, we are faced with a bittersweet announcement: the sunsetting of the Requestly Android Debugger feature, effective February 15, 2024.

The decision to sunset the Android Debugger was not made lightly. As a robust tool designed for in-app API inspection, editing, and mocking directly on Android devices, it held significant promise and demonstrated our commitment to enabling developers to work more efficiently. Our team dedicated considerable effort and passion to its development, aiming to make it an indispensable tool for Android developers.

Despite the undeniable potential and the dedication of its users, the Android Debugger’s adoption has fallen short of our expectations. While it has garnered a group of passionate supporters who have found great value in its capabilities, the overall engagement from the broader community has not been sufficient to justify continued investment in the feature’s development and support.

Moreover, we have observed a significant shift in traction towards web-based tools and solutions. The feedback and usage data clearly indicate a growing demand and appreciation for our web-focused offerings. This trend has led us to realign our resources and efforts towards enhancing and expanding our web tool suite, reflecting our commitment to where our users see the most value.

We understand that this transition may be challenging for those who have come to rely on the Android Debugger. We want to assure our community that we are dedicated to providing support during this transition period. Our team is available to assist with migrating workflows and exploring alternative solutions within Requestly’s broader toolset that can meet your development needs.

As we look to the future, our focus on web development tools represents a strategic shift towards areas where we can deliver the most significant impact and value to our community. We are excited about the opportunities this focus brings and are committed to developing innovative solutions that empower developers to create, test, and deploy with greater ease and efficiency.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding as we navigate these changes. Together, we are confident in our path forward and look forward to bringing you the best in web development tools and resources.
