A FREE Android Developer Toolkit to CURE the fragmentation and deliver you the MOST stunningly beautiful apps.
Here at Kewl Life, we have a vision of bringing a "pure" digital lifestyle to the masses using OPEN and FREE technologies. Through the use of Android (mobile), HTML5 (web) and Wireless Broadband (connectivity) we are on the verge of realizing a dream that we like to call "Living the Kewl Life".
libKCE is a FREE Android / HTML5 Toolkit that we've developed with the primary purpose of transferring the power from the manufacturers, the carriers, the policy makers and other powers that be into the hands of the software developers (the people that make things happen) and on to the people, YOU!
libKCE is a drop-in, plug-and-play library that allows developers to quickly add it to their new and current projects. It offers an Intuitive API that conforms to international programming standards, which allows anyone to be up and running in a matter of minutes.
Developers will spend LESS TIME figuring out how to do something and MORE TIME actually doing it! Liking listening to your requests and adding new features, adding more levels and overall improving YOUR mobile experience.
You've no doubt been exposed to the #1 debate about why Android is NOT better than iOS, FRAGMENTATION! One of the primary goals of libKCE is to offer a Fragmentation-FREE experience for developers when creating apps. This is accomplished through the extensive use of crowd-sourced device data in combination with an API that allows Android develop.
In battle of the mobile supremacy, Android has proven to be the most functional of the Big 3 (Android, iOS and Windows Phone). However, what it offers in function it equally lacks in style. libKCE provides a new set of Beautiful Widgets for developers to drop into their applications, to match the industry-leading UI of Apple's iOS.
Successful funding will allow us to release libKCE FREE to developers across the world. By creating this FAST. STABLE. BEAUTIFUL library for developers, we hope to ensure the continued growth and adoption of Android as The World's #1 Mobile Platform. Any contribution you make to this project will bring us one step closer to realizing this dream.
A successfully funded project will allow us to complete the necessary packaging and preparations necessary to release libKCE to the public. Additional funds will be directed towards expanding the compatibility of the current libKCE Toolkit to reach as many devices and users as possible. With our planned UI upgrades, we aim to combine function with beauty in a way that Android has never seen (but desperately needs). Each and every dollar is invested towards bringing the benefits of this library to more and more developers, more and more devices, more and more users throughout the world.
So, exactly where does my money go?
- 35% New Talent → adding Specialized Developers to the team
- 30% Design →improving & adding to the beautiful UI Widgets
- 10% i18n →adding support for the International Community
- 10% Hardware →new & used Devices for in-house development

As new devices and technologies continue to be built and released to market, we will continue to work and coordinate the efforts of hundreds of programmers and millions of hours of tireless, hard work to provide a simple, central resource for Android developers to share. With the success of this libKCE, we will soon be able to offer additional project to the Kickstarter community, like www.RootMyAndroid.com.
