Boosted Apps is a paid Glitch subscription that allows you to do more with your projects!

 

When you subscribe to Boosted Apps you can add the following capabilities to up to five of your Glitch projects:

  • Always on
  • Extra memory
  • Extra disk space

 

But wait, there's more!

 

When you are subscribed to Boosted Apps, you also get the following benefits that can be used by all of your projects:

 

  • No rate limits
  • Private projects
  • 4,000 project hours for un-Boosted projects.

 

 

How does this compare to what I can already do on Glitch for free?

Sounds interesting! How do I get Boosted Apps?

 

Users with a registered Glitch account can sign up for either a monthly or annual subscription.

 

You can choose to pay either:

  • $10 monthly, or

  • $96 annually

 

Okay, but what happens once I sign up?

 

You will be able to Boost and un-Boost apps directly from your Dashboard, by clicking on the toggle.

 

Apps that have been Boosted will have a diamond icon next to the project name on the individual project page and within the project editor.

 

       

 

  • You can Boost up to five of your Glitch projects at one time and the extra capabilities will automatically be applied!
  • To see the Boosts working, open the project in the Glitch editor and click on the “Boosted Status” button in the bottom of the sidebar.
  • If you change your mind about which of your projects you want boosted, you can switch them out by going to your Dashboard and clicking the toggle next to the app that you want to un-Boost or Boost.
