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

We live in an age where people share their LinkedIn or Facebook link before handing out a business card. Majority of the time, when business cards are handed out, they’re forgotten about until months later when you’re cleaning out your wallet or purse. Not utilized, a missed connection.

The app serves to be the modern digital business card storing what matters most—the links, and using those links to quickly create connections with ease.

The app currently allows users to enter the email of the person they want to connect with and then their links and a brief intro message are automatically generated. All you have to do is press send. No more remembering to look at a business card or clearing time to draft an email. It’s time we connect and network instantly in real time!

Prior to launch, the app with also have QR code technology so if two people who have Junction are connecting, they can simply scan the other persons code and the email is generated.

Currently the iOS app is in beta, with a few major enhancements to come before launch. However, there is not yet an Android app. Majority of the funds will go towards getting the Android app built for launch and the overall maintenance of the app (for example: database fees). Should the app reach funding, the app will be able to launch without advertisements, assuring a consistent smooth experience for all users.  

Risks and challenges

The iOS app is 75% completed, the final stage is adding the app enhancements for v.0, mainly the QR code technology. Little challenges to overcome on the iOS end. I have 3+ years of experience in iOS development and I am confident the iOS app will be completed. The Android app on the other hand has not gotten started. For the platform to work with the enhancements that are coming like scanner/QR code technology, there needs to be a large audience which means having Junction on Android is a necessity to the apps’ success.
