Count Us Down App: Status as of 10-July-2015

Thanks for being a loyal follower of the 2HourAppreneur blog. As you probably know, we are developing a new app and we will be providing monthly updates as we progress with the development of the new app and let you know once the app is ready for the first round of beta testing.

Current Status of the Count Us Down App

Currently, we are making great progress on the development of the app. We plan to have 2 formal beta releases:

  • Beta 1 – This will have the basic features of the app. We will be soliciting feedback on colors, design, and ease-of-use. We expect to be in Beta 1 by the end of summer.
  • Beta 2 – This release will have sharing capabilities built into the app. You will be able to create an event and share it with others. We expect to be in Beta 2 sometime in the fall.

Ever wonder what it would be like see an app being developed?

We are working hard on a new mobile app that will work on both the iPhone and Android devices and would like your help!

What is the new app?

It is a friend-sharing app that allows you to countdown and celebrate your life’s big events. It’s called Count Us Down.

How is the app used?

Weddings: Imagine you are planning a wedding and would like to share the big date with your friends and family. Simply open up the app, add your wedding date, share it with your friends and now all your friends can count down the days with you!

Travel: Let’s say you are planning a vacation with friends and/or family. Add your vacation date, share it with your travel mates and you all share in the anticipation of counting down the days until your fun trip.

Baby on the Way: If you’re pregnant and want to share the baby’s arrival with friends and family, you can have them count down to the arrival of your bundle of joy.

Sporting Events: Imagine counting down to the Superbowl, World Series, the Stanley Cup finals, NBA finals or the Women’s World Cup!

You get the Picture: Any event coming up (retirement, soldier coming home from deployment, concert, family reunion, class reunion) — count down and share the excitement!

How can you help?

We are in the development stages of the app now and will soon be testing our first release of the app. We plan to have 2 formal beta releases, the first will have basic features and the 2nd will have sharing features.

We are looking for about 100 beta testers (we currently have about 25 signed up). As a beta tester you will:

  • Download the app and ensure it works as it should on your device (iPhone, iPad or Android)
  • Give us candid feedback on colors, features, and ease-of-use.
  • Give us suggestions for future versions of the app.

What’s in it for you?

  • Get a free copy of the app once it is in the app store.
  • Get exposure to how an app is developed and tested.
  • Brag to your friends that you helped test an app that is used world-wide.
  • Nab Karma points for helping us out (we will also give you a shout out in an upcoming blog).
