Shutting Down the Strayan App

With heavy heart, the Strayan App will cease to function past 30th April 2023.

Strayan has been a fantastic journey for me. I've enjoyed attempting to build the best Aussie shopping assistant that could make a real difference to the purchasing patterns of Australians.

Recently I haven't been able to dedicate the time to Strayan. There's a few reasons for this:

  • Competing priorities - I have a young family, a challenging job and some other long standing projects that were before Strayan that are all competing for my time
  • The ongoing cost - While always envisaged as a passion project with a hopeful return, the costs of keeping servers and paying for data sources are more than the revenue of the app

Because of these reasons, I will unfortunately be shutting down the servers on 30th April 2023. If you have a Strayan MAX subscription and wish to get a refund, the FAQ page has been updated with instructions.

I hope you have found some value from the app and will continue to buy Aussie well into the future.

All the best
