What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

My goal for this project is simple, create a Clean, Simple, Easy to Use Android SMS Messaging app. I've always been frustrated the way every Android Phone has a different, clunky SMS app. When trying to download other 3rd party SMS apps, I could never find one that stood out as exceptionally Simple, or Clean looking. Sure SMS apps aren't to complex, but having a good-looking, well-working app that works/looks the same across all Android devices can be hard to find. If my project is funded, I believe I can deliver this user experience.

If funded, development of the app will start as soon as possible. My goal will be to have the first version of the app launched by June 2018. Depending on how the development process goes some settings/features (as specified below) may be held off until post-launch. 

Features & Functionality

  • Simple, Clean Design (I guess, it's not really a feature, but still, it's important)
  • Initiate New Conversations
  • View a list of Current, and Previous Conversations
  • Attach an Image using your Device's Camera
  • Attach an Image using your Device's Image Library
  • Attach/Search from a GIF directly from within the app (likely a post-launch feature)
  • Initiate a Phone Call from a Conversation Thread
  • Primary Theme Color Customization w/ Dark Mode, and Light Mode support (likely a post-launch feature)
  • Secondary Theme Color Customization w/ support for custom hex colors
  • Notification Settings (Push Notifications, Text Tone, Haptic Feedback)
  • Text Tone/Ring Tone Customization
  • Haptic Feedback Level Customization (likely a post-launch feature)
  • Option to Hide Contact Photo's from the Messaging Thread List (likely a post-launch feature)
  • 3 Font Size Options (likely a post-launch feature)

Risks and challenges

I don't personally feel as if there is a ton of Risks or Challenges associated with this project. Overall the development/distribution process should be pretty straightforward.

That being said, the potential risk that most all projects face is funding. However, I do believe the requested budget will allot enough finances to handle the development cost associated with this project.
