Considering the fact that Snap Search launched in 2019 (July, to be price), this post 2019: Year in Review actually comprises of everything from launch till now.
Since the launch in July of 2019, Snap Search has experienced plenty of milestones. I’ve tried to highlight a few of them on this blog and some of it is on IndieHackers.

Being an alone developer and spending extra hours working on Snap Search, I’m extremely proud of what it has achieved in less than 5 months time. I’m proud, but not satisfied. There is immense scope for growth and hopefully with increased user adoption all the numbers above will grow and improve.
2020 is going to be filled with new features and improvements.
- Starting with an update planned for release in the first half of January.
- One major plan is to get the iOS version out the door soon too.
- Hope to grow to more than 50 supported websites for quick search.
- Increase revenue generated.
- Develop swag for Snap Search.
That being said, thank you for being a part of this journey. It’s because of the users and the positive feedback from the community that Indie Developers such as myself can devote time and energy for projects such as Snap Search. We wish you the most successful and joyful year ahead! ?
