This iPhone App will search for apartments and predict commute costs based on personal driving driving behavior.
About the Go Save! Pro iPhone App
Thanks for visiting this Go Save Pro! Kickstarter fundraiser project! Feel free to click around and send a message with any questions about the project.
Before I got laid off in 2009, the company I worked for began doing shutdowns every month and I had to reduce my expenses. I tried doing all the normal stuff like finding better deals for phone, internet, and rent, but I found that my car expenses were the most difficult to calculate. The difficulty is that there is no easy way to predict how much you will save if you move closer to work, stop driving to your friend's house, or ride a bike to work. Realizing this, I set up an elaborate spreadsheet to log my driving expenses and calculate how I was using each gallon of gas and how I could save money by changing the way I drive. This calculation saved me money so I founded Solarcycle to share this and other money saving tools in an easy-to-use iPhone App rather than a cumbersome spreadsheet. I need Kickstarter's help to fund the upgrade from the original free App to a new paid Pro App, which will include an apartment search tool and automatically calculate the predicted commute costs.
Where Do the Funds Go?
We need your help to fund the new Go Save! Pro App, which includes an automated apartment search and commute cost calculator. All the funds will be used for professional graphic design and programming of the App.
How Long Will it Take To Finish Production?
The Free version of the App, Go Save!, took about 1 month to complete. The upgraded Go Save! Pro App would take about 2 months to complete from the time the funding goal is reached.
Does it Work?
I tested this App on myself and it predicted that I would only save about $11 a month moving 2 miles closer to work. After I moved, the predicted costs turned out to be 7% accurate. So it works very well and I am claiming a 90% accuracy on the calculated results.
Any Future In-App Purchases or Upgrades?
If the funding is successful, there will be plans to add new features to the Go Save! Pro App such as finding the average driving behaviors and commuting costs of people in a city, merging user budgets like shopping and other bills with the Go Save! Pro calculator, and even the ability to learn how other people with similar driving behaviors save money. These will be separate modules that you will be able to purchase inside the Go Save! Pro App.
Go Save! Pro App Features:
* Automatically Search for Apartment Listings and Predict Commute Costs Before Moving
* Save Apartment Searches and Driving Behavior Adjustments
* Compare Best Apartment Deals and Verify that Commute Costs Don't Cancel Out Any Savings
* Driving Cost Analysis Based on Individual Driving Behavior
