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.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

BREAKDOWN OF THE APP
There are five main parts to the Photobunch app. You have the Camera Mode, Group Mode, Photobunch Mode, Dashboard and Message.
This will be the first screen the user will see after they have logged into the app.
Points: Users earn points for every photo or video taken on the app. Each photo taken is 1 point and a video is 3 points. Once the user has reached a certain number of points, they can use the points to redeem a prize from the "My Points" button. The prize is set to random and is either advertisement or promotional offers from companies. Users can also buy more points.
My Favourite Bunch: This option allows the users to pick their favourite friends or groups for quick access to their photos and videos.
Group Selection: A drop down menu over the camera mode with a list of active groups the user has joined. Users can select which groups they want to share the photos and videos with.
Shoot: Tap to take photos. Hold will take videos. Once a photo or video is taken, the user will be asked to accept and share or delete. There is also an option to download photos or videos when reviewing. In camera mode, users can take quick pictures without reviewing, allowing photos to be automatically shared to the selected group(s).
The group mode is where users can create, join or view the groups they have joined.
Active Group: When creating a group, users can select the times they want the group to be active during. Groups are only active for 24 hours for photos and videos to be shared with the group. After 24 hours, photos and videos can no longer be shared with the group. Group members will still be able to view & download photos and videos shared by the group. Users can still join a group if it’s not active and a countdown timer will appear informing the user when the group will become active.
Privacy Setting: When creating a group, users can set the privacy to open group, request to join the group or password protected.
The Photobunch mode shows a list of friends the user is following. Users can view photos and videos posted by their friends in the last 24 hours. Also in this mode, users can view all their photos and videos.
Users can chat with friends that they are following on the app.
...More than just an app.
Photobunch Live is a hire service we will be offering to clients for parties and events. Our aim is to enhance the event experience, so clients can live stream photos and videos from the group they have created on the app to our screens. This hire service can be used for weddings, parties, cooperate events, hotels, clubs etc.
SHORT FILM OF OUR JOURNEY
Depending on how much funding we have raised from the Kickstarter campaign (see "Our Goals" Infographic), we are looking to document our journey through a short film. We will be teaming up with 21 Eighteen, a film production company, to film us as we embark on this incredible journey of launching Photobunch.
