Community Crowdsourcing apps

The innovative generation starts here

I seem to come up with my best ideas in the shower, for some reason. I think I solved world peace in there one day. The only trouble is, ideas are a bit like dreams at times. Unless you write them down straight away, they disappear like smoke in the wind. IdeaSwipe takes the whole concept of brainstorming ideas one step further by creating an app that turns your iOS or Android into an ideas receptacle and lets you invite friends, colleagues and other creatives to develop them into reality.  More

A new kind of news in 20 second sound bites

How many times do you hear it these days? The news is too serious. It's depressing. Whether it be terrorist bombs, street shootings or violent Black Friday fights, it almost makes you wanna turn off the news and watch "Two and a Half Men." Well, maybe I'm stretching it a little there but i'm sure you know exactly what I mean. In actual fact, more and more people are turning to their mobiles to catch up on the news rather than the traditional TV nightly versions. However, if the truth were known, even mobile news leaves a little to be desired.  More

A free, fully customizable forum and commentary box for your website

Its a strange thing but the comments box at the bottom of a website page often offers some of the most incisive comments that you can find. I don't know about you but it's often the first thing I look at after perusing a page about a product or service. Sometimes there are a few iffy comments in there but, generally speaking, you can find out tips and recommendations and it's a really good way for developers to find out what their visitors are really thinking. It's also an opportunity to answer queries as well as engaging your community and keeping them interested in what you have to say. ...  More

A community to help your crowdfunding campaign that fits nicely between concept and Kickstarter

We all love creative types, don't we? Their minds work in such a way that they can pluck an idea out of the sky and change our lives a little bit with their innovative gadgets and inventions. Many of these people are paid well and have teams to collaborate and expand their original concept. There are, however a growing band of budding entrepreneurs - who are getting younger and younger, I might add - that don't have the vast resources to develop this great lightbulb moment that they want to develop. Where do they find other like-minded individuals with the skills to assist you in taking ...  More

Play what your fans want to hear rather than your lead guitarist's pick

How many times have you seen the Rolling Stones in concert? I've seen them a couple of times over the years but, to be honest, I don't have a great deal of interest in seeing them again. The problem is, they've had so many iconic songs, it can start to get a little dull when they have to play them each time they perform. I mean, can you imagine the Stones playing live and not playing Honky Tonk Women or Satisfaction or Street Fighting Man or... I rest my case. To their credit, they toured a few years back and asked their fans to choose the set list and it turned into a really interesting ...  More

Crowdsource your interior designs from professionals and save heaps

One of the significant changes in architectural design over the last couple of decades is that the emphasis is now on the interior of a building rather than what it looks like from the outside. In the past, people wanted to show others the beauty and grandiosity of their living accommodation whereas these days it's all about how luxurious they are on the inside. The plethora of home renovation tv shows have compounded this to the point that more and more people are now renovating their existing homes rather than moving into a new one. This can save a lot of money but interior decorators ...  More

Integrate your IRC feed into a new fully scrollable chat room

The concept of connecting a chat room to your site is an old one and there are many available without the need to look too hard. Most of them are based on the concept of one on one connections or are geared towards private conversations for small groups. Scrollback is a free, open source chat room application that provides a slightly new type of chat experience by allowing users to integrate their IRC channel with a Scrollback room and then embed it on their website. This allows conversations to flow easily between their IRC and their website visitors.   Scrollback is building a ...  More

A social community where you can really meet like-minded friends

Is your social network getting you down? I've been saying for some time now that, in order to be able to keep up with what your friends are doing, there is an optimum amount of Facebook friends you can have. Once you get above a couple of hundred it starts to turn into a full time job to keep up with your feed properly. What began as a great social experiment has turned, for many, into a race to the most number of friends - the vast majority of which you never have any contact with. Quantity over quality. Worthy is a social community for iOS that turns the social friendship concept on its ...  More
