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

What You Bumping (WYB) is the next big social media app. By combining music with social media WYB will have a huge following amongst people who want to share what songs speak to them. 

There is no place like WYB on the internet currently; a designated site for fans of music to share the songs they listen to, to find new music, as well as comment on other users posts. When you post a track it goes to your homepage for your followers to see, as well as to your profile. Your profile will be a playlist for others to come and listen to, people can play your profile chronologically from what you have most recently posted, as well as like your post, comment on one of your posts or share it on their own page. WYB's homepage will show songs posted by people you follow. WYB will also include a worldwide page where you can see the most popular songs based on the amount of times it was posted.  

With this Kickstarter I am going to use the money to outsource a designer. I will use Upwork.com outsource the work. I interviewed 50 people ages 12-30 and 45/50 expressed great interest in the app saying that they would use WYB everyday. 

Risks and challenges

Apple music, Shazam, and Spotify all are bordering on having a social media aspect. We will overcome the challenge of our competition already having traction in terms of users. WYB will do what these apps have not done, WYB is a specific app for you to share the music you listen to with other people.
Another challenge will be finding the right developer to build the app. I have been in communication with multiple developers on upwork.com, once we have funding the app will start to get built.
