Successful appbackr Campaign Wraps up
Our app funding campaign on appbackr for the Android app version of The Chronic Argonauts has just concluded, and the results far exceeded my expectations. Funding reached a total amount of $1,117!
I want to thank all of our “backrs” for their support. Their generous sharing has really made this app possible.
The Android app is fully functional thanks to the help of a great programmer. There are two versions of the app that will be deployed:
(1) The premium $0.99 version that includes the full graphic novel and a copy of H.G. Wells’ original short story from 1888.
(2) A free version that includes the first chapter to whet the appetites of potential buyers. The free version also includes an in-app purchasing mechanism for quick and easy upgrades to the premium version.
As the campaign far surpassed the minimum funding goal of $700, I am currently working with some freelancers to enhance the apps with an animated menu to make them even more special. After some final testing, I expect the apps to go live within the next couple of weeks. As we get closer, I’ll post some screenshots and vdeo.
Also on the horizon are versions for Apple iPad, Amazon Kindle Fire, Barnes & Noble Nook Color/Tablet, and more! Since this appbackr campaign was so successful, I might just have to do another for the iPad version.
