About this project
WindowShadez™ is an easy to use program, written for the Windows platform (tested on XP, 7, 8 & 10), that allows you to designate areas of your screen (like where those annoying ads are) and cover them up with something you would rather see. You can save and name layouts to re-use each time you visit a certain site or play a particular game.
And when I say easy to use, I mean it. I have been using it on a daily basis and fine tuning it for months. With WindowShadez™ running, you can go to a new web page and have it covered with a new Shadez layout in less time than it may take for the page to load.
My wife said she was surprised that I was using Kickstarter for this project, since, as she put it, I don't like "accepting money from people". I guess she didn't realize, I am really using this as a product launch. So, it's not so much something I am trying to fund, as it is trying to launch, in a big way.
Yes, I do have plans for the goal money, that will bring the software the last 5% of the way, with a digital certificate to compile with. This allows the install package to identify me as a "known" developer (so anti-virus software won't balk at it). And as I mention in my video, I do want to register my trademark.
With enough support, I will do those two things, and have an affordable, easy to use solution for anyone (on the right platform) that wants to take control of their desktop, and enjoy games, news feeds, or whatever ... without unwanted distraction from ads.
Risks and challenges
Fulfillment will be via a web download of the install package, and the product is already complete. If the software downloads become too much for my current host, then I will add bandwidth or find a better host or alternative site for downloads.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
