This week, we started on app design, so we discussed out personal faves.
I have a ton of apps that I use, but I think my favorite is kickstarter.
Kickstarter is a crowdfunding app that features all sorts of really cool products and businesses that people are trying to get started. I’ve found some really neat gadgets and games there, plus I’ve supported some really great causes. I’ve never really looked into other crowdfunding apps, but I really like that there’s no personal funding. People are really trying to start businesses there.
The app is free, but you’re using it to spend money on things, so there’s that. I don’t think I would pay for it, because I am actually using it to spend money, mostly on things I don’t really need.
The projects are separated by category, but you can also search by popularity and key words. If I were going to add something, it would be a way to add to the project late. Sometimes I don’t have the money for something, or I miss something I’d really love to have because the funding has ended and there isn’t always a way to get in touch with the creator and see if something is available. I would add a feature that would let people like me contact the creator if they missed a project.
