We did it!!! We'd like to thank everyone who backed us and spread the word. With your help, we're going to change the world of pickup basketball.

Follow our progress at: www.whoshoopin.com 

Whether you’re an elite hooper looking for a competitive run or just trying to have some fun and get some exercise, our mission is to help you spend less time looking and more time playing. Who’s Hoopin? gets you playing the perfect game of basketball, whatever that may mean to you.

We've already launched Beta versions (download FREE for iPhone and Droid) and are raising money to make Who's Hoopin? the ultimate tool for finding pickup ball. If you don’t see courts near you on our map, then that means you get to be the pioneer! Use the app to create a network of ballers in your neighborhood to make playing ball easy.

Every dollar we raise will go towards marketing and development: making the app faster, better looking, and more powerful. 

Raising money will allow us to bring you features like:

    

Risks and challenges

Creating a network isn't easy. It requires a critical mass of users to reach its full potential, so gaining enough users will be our biggest challenge.

We have been shaping the concept for Who's Hoopin? for over two years and have seen several basketball apps try and fail to tackle the problem at hand. Our app is different. The reporting feature allows the app to provide useful information with a much smaller user base, since it only takes 1 user to report the number of people at a court. Furthermore, funding from this campaign will help us to incentivize activity by rewarding users for checking in, reporting numbers, and recruiting more users.

We will succeed where others have failed because we have studied this problem for years, we intimately understand it, and we will not stop until we solve it.
