Taking over an application from a previous programmer

The author of an app hasn’t been developing it for years, but he offered to take it over from him. How should this be implemented in practice?

The app owner has to transfer it to another user.
There is no other way as the owner has the copyright, so Athom won’t get involved.
The only other solution is a new developer tries to publish a new app with a different id but Athom will likely block it.

Yes, he said earlier that he would gladly give it to someone. My question is about the official route.

Adrian described the official way.

  • Send your account ID to the other developer.
    Homey Developer Tools

  • The other dev hands over the app to your account

  • You get a mail and can accept the app

Then it appers in your app list. You can publish new versions now.
