What is the history and popularity of the app?

CodePigeon was launched in a beta phase in March 2012. As an app appealing to a technically knowledgeable market, it managed to quickly attract thousands of users and followers. It has also generated some level of buzz on forums and other sites specializing in the topic. The simple, straightforward focus of the app gives it a clear target market although it also excludes the larger audience of non-programmers.

What are the differences to other apps?

Security and backup is emphasized throughout the app, with back ups on three servers in Germany, the United States, and South Korea. The fast access time also makes it stand out. The access times are color coded on a world map on the site to tell users exactly what to expect.
