Scuttlebutt Apps

Your scuttlebutt is the data you carry with you - imagine a little slice of a parallel universe in your pocket. This data is yours and you can interact with it however you like.

These apps are different kinds of magic glasses to help you interact with this reality. Try different glasses on, change them when you're bored, make some new ones that fit you better ... your scuttleverse doesn't mind - it's just data.

Come explore with us! If you are new, you might like to start with Patchwork!
