I enjoy working with start-ups. The innovation and energy is just amazing and I'm always learning new things. Every day has so many challenges that makes you push yourself mentally and expand your skill set boundaries.
As my fitness class instructor says in class, "Push yourself." That's what it is like working in start-up.
I'm working with this very cool start-up, Roamtouch. They have 2 products right now:
- RKT Launcher - on Android, launch any app from your locked phone with a gesture.
- getureKit - create mobile gestures consistent across all platforms (iOS, Android, mobile, etc.) using the cloud, simply by creating a gesture and inserting code into your app or Web site.
They made a video that explains their product.
Like most start-ups - they need funding. They set a goal to get 30% of their total funding on DAY 1 of their presence on Indiegogo which starts on September 3. Learn more in the letter below.
If you think it is interesting and want to contribute - that's awesome! And please do!
If you are an investor - let me know and I'll introduce you to the owner.
Thanks!! Hope you can help move gesture design and development forward.
Letter explaining the offer:
I am writing to share something that has me really excited, we are launching RKT Launcher and Gesturekit, a gesture driven lockscreen application developed at Roamtouch. Our RKT Launcher is a unique, never before seen gesture-driven lockscreen application for Android that enables users to define their own gesture commands to launch any application without the need to first unlock their phones.
But this Launcher is only an example demonstrating the potential of gestureKit, our company’s main product, a simple and sophisticated software development kit (SDK) to create gesture-driven applications across all platforms. Click here to watch our video!
We will be launching our Indiegogo campaign on 3 September 2014 at 4PM EST and we need to raise 30% of the funds from our friends, family and early supporters on day in order to secure the project. Contributors can pay using their credit card or paypal, by simply clicking the icon on the page (that we will be sending you).
