A new version of the NFL App Developer Program will begin in 2018, and it will be open to anyone in the NFL, according to a memo released Friday by NFL Executive Vice President of Development for App Development John Rabe.
In his memo, Rabe says the NFL’s app development program has grown dramatically in the past three years, with more than 40 new developers and more than 50 apps approved.
That’s up from just four applications approved last year.
The NFL App Developers Program has been the subject of a number of controversies over the years, including the recent NFL App Challenge, which saw a variety of apps rejected for being too complex or not accessible to a wide audience.
Rabe has repeatedly said that the app development process has become easier in recent years.
“The new NFL App is designed to provide you with the tools and resources you need to create the best and most engaging app possible,” he wrote in the memo.
“This new NFLApp will give you the tools to get your app into the hands of players and fans and to develop it into the game you all want to play.”
In January 2013, the league was still in its infancy, with its own website and limited app store. “
To answer that question, we have to begin by looking back to when the NFL first started offering the NFLApp.

And there were still questions about whether a smartphone app would work in the mobile environment.”
