About That KickStarter App…
Have you been thinking about a game changer lately? Have you been too busy as a young mogul that you don’t have any spare time for the inner ramblings of your personal computer (or your Mac if you are really trying to make a statements)? If you have answered yes to those questions, then I am guessing that you love to be creative at the expense of others’ hard-earned cash.
Go ahead and pat yourself on the back. You’ve converted those Internet skepticals into full-fledged true believers, and now they back your belief with currency. Go ahead and keep making moves young mogul; soon you’ll be rubbing shoulders with Mark Cuban and Sir Richard Branson.
Another reason to keep making those moves is now they move with you.
You have probably become extremely familiar with the crowd-funding site known as KickStarter, haven’t you? That site has become your new beacon of hope for that personal project that has been in the back of your brain for what seems like forever now. You have been good to the site and the site has returned the favor tenfold. Well, looks like the site has even more favors left in the tank for you, you lucky dog.
According to a new article by IGN, Kickstarter has just released a new app for iOS devices. Now users will be able to do all the things that they love on the go… since of course everything you love is on Kickstarter, isn’t it? In all seriousness, the user will now have the opportunity to scroll through a sleek new menu, specifically designed with iOS in mind, and be notified if new pledges hit their much beloved project.
In addition, users will be able to view such things as various stats on the aforementioned projects, update user profiles, and also see and discover new, popular up-and-coming projects. Speaking of discovering new projects, the app will be able to showcase project videos plus enable Facebook connectivity.
Personally, the app sounds like a pretty good bet if you are a KickStarter member and are really on the go in life. I just don’t see the need for this if you are actively and constantly working on said project.
What I mean by this is that for someone who may work on their idea, day in and day out, the project may involve a higher-end computer in some way shape or form; and the person could just check from there. And what I mean by higher end is something a step above a phone or tablet that actually possesses the power needed to carry out a full-fledged project.
Again, I say if it is really making moves and extremely mobile with their project, this is sent from the heavens. To me this is the ideal business plan for the app from the outside looking in. As for those who work on a desktop or a laptop, this really doesn’t change a thing except save you a few precious seconds of logging on the website; instead, scroll all the way to the KickStarter icon.
But nevertheless, this is a big name website and to stay relevant in this market you need an app, so I am not completely ruling out the application.
Whether or not you may be in need of this little invention, there is one clear takeaway from the app; for those of you out there trying to come up with a game changer, the game has changed.
