“a Kickstarter for Apps, but better”
Anyone can make an App Idea Happen! On nov 1st, SellanApp is available worldwide
31 OCTOBER 2012, AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS
SummarySellanApp launches a service for everyone to turn App Ideas into real apps and earn money. Named “a Kickstarter for Apps, but better”, SellanApp connects people with ideas for mobile apps with developers using crowd-funding. Sellanapp leverages crowd funding in app creation by validating app ideas before they're put in the App Store. What's more, anyone can do it - there's no need to be a developer or pay to hire one.
Anyone can be a producer. A producer mocks up an app idea using the free iPad app and then uploads this to SellanApp.com where they create a crowd funding campaign.
Selected developers watch the crowd funding happen and can choose to develop the app for the amount pledged. Effectively creating an auction between the creative community with App Ideas, and Developers worldwide.
Only 0.01% of apps are successful, and the SellanApp crowd funding method allows apps to be socially validated before they hit the App Store. Success is then almost guaranteed due to the pledgers becoming the app's ambassadors and spreading the word about their app.
SellanApp submits the app to the App Store and shares the revenue between the producer and the pledgers. This way pledgers can directly profit from the revenue the app makes.
In private beta since October 1st, today SellanApp opens www.sellanapp.com worldwide, along with its SellanApp iPad app available for free in the App Store.
With SellanApp, a producer can:
- Mock up their App ideas and create a playable demo for free
- Have App Ideas socially proved and refined without spending a penny
- Have App Ideas developed by established developers without having funds
- Receive a share of the App's revenue and keep the Intellectual Property
And pledgers can:
- Receive revenue as a result of participating in crowd funding
- Benefit from being part of a community intimately involved with the app before it gets developed
- Uses crowd funding to connect the creative community with developers
- Ensures delivery of succesfully crowd funded app ideas to the App Store
- Optimizes development costs through a transparent crowd funding auction between the creative community and developers worldwide
- Helps apps become reality which otherwise would no direct business model, but have a clear social value
