Grandma Storn's Herb Wheel 2 APP

Hello Folks,

We are preparing for our next Kickstarter project and are in search of a really good group of people that can help us turn Grandma Storn's Herb Wheel into an App for both ip and Android markets including help with the whole process from beginning to end.

If you know of good people and/or a good firm in this field, please either send their contact name, information, etc... to me or ask them to contact me.  The closer to Cincinnati the better but, of course, the most important thing is knowledge, experience, and abilities to make a GREAT APP for you and get it out in the marketplace(s) are the most important criteria.

(One person mentioned such a group in St. Louis, I believe, but I could not find that email.)

As for The Wheels Ks Project #1:  I really, really wish I had thought to take a picture of my local post office when I dropped off three boxes of Wheels in the bubble envelopes last week.  I didn't think of it until I was writing the Last Update but it would have been a great last picture of the project.  Someone remind me at the end of our Grandma Storn's Herb Wheel 2 APP Project and I will take and send out the picture of the post-office with your Wheels lined up and ready to go.

I did want to show you a picture of an onion and garlic bulb that started to grow around the beginning of our Ks project.  The onion was just a regular Red Onion, my preference of onions for most situations that call for an onion.  They both just started to grow on their own, particularly the onion, so I stuck them in a glass of water and check out what happened below.  I will be starting my own designed herb and vegetable garden this Spring with these two as the centerpiece.  My old herb garden was haphazard and will be converted to a newer, better Herb garden.

Thank you in advance for your help and support with finding a great design App firm!

      Hello. Just wanted you all to know: I contacted each of your recommended App-development companies and heard back from Nerdery and Sourcebits. Then this afternoon (Wednesday, April 3rd) I had meetings with both.

      And both are very viable options though the costs are a LOT more than my previous research had unveiled: upwards of $25 to $50K! So...I am pushing forward and still hoping for a few (financial) doors to open.

      Interestingly enough, Sourcebits out of San Fran wants a face to face meeting; in fact, requires it.

      And Taptanium (Franz) is not accessible from his website so I left a message on his Fb page but have not heard back from him. His work looks incredible, though.

      Not sure where this road will lead us but I really appreciate your help and going on the journey with me.

      I have used for building apps for my work. Good group of people.

      I agree with Carleton, an app developer does not need to be someone you can meet with in person. is a great company. They are based out of UT, but have a great team of developers world wide. Best of luck!

      I've heard good things about Sourcebits...

      If you want a beautifully designed app that's also incredibly functional and intuitive, it starts and stops with Franz Bruckhoff, who is the creator of the awesome Holigraphium app. He can be reached at . He's not local to you but, in all honesty, you won't actually benefit much from working with an app developer in person. I've done plenty of apps virtually and never actually met the designers in person and they've all turned out great!

      That's a pretty great onion!
      Received my wheel yesterday, just in time for my friend's birthday. Thank you so much! She's gonna love it :)
