SellAnApp — which is currently still in Beta — has been set up to facilitate the creation of mobile apps, using the power of the crowds to first improve, and then fund the apps.
It was only last week that we wrote about UnserAller, a platform which asked for input from the crowds to help improve product ideas. Now we’ve come across a similar initiative, with a twist. SellAnApp — which is currently still in Beta — has been set up to facilitate the creation of mobile apps, using the power of the crowds to first improve, and then fund the apps. To begin using the service, anyone with an idea for a new app can upload design sketches, doodles, descriptions and stories to convey their idea to others. App lovers and experts can then submit suggestions to this creator, who can choose which comments or advice they want to take on board and implement in the design. They can also select any of these contributors to form part of the app production team. Once a design has been finalized, an app profile page is set up, where friends of the app creator and members of the public can help fund the creation of the app. In return, they receive a share of the app’s eventual revenue. Once the funding target is reached, SellAnApp proceed to create and market the app. Those who have long harboured an idea for an app in their heads may well want to register for SellAnApp’s early bird referral program. But for anyone else, SellAnApp’s model still offers plenty of inspiration, going beyond a crowdfunding platform to make full use of the crowd’s collective input. Spotted by: Milan van den Bovenkamp
