About this project
"Cool typography t-shirts and posters." - Abuzeedo
DashBurst is a group of bloggers and geeks dedicated to bringing you interesting content and visuals. Over the past year we’ve been covering some of the most inspiring artists, savvy entrepreneurs and worthy causes in today’s world of art and tech. We’ve built our web magazine to handle videos, photography, music, news articles, infographics and presentations—all the different content types available on the web today.
Now, with your help, we would like to bring all of this rich content to you on the go with new mobile apps for your Android phone or tablet, iPhone or iPad device!
What Are We Building?
So far the DashBurst online magazine, which launched early last year, has covered many extraordinary people, startups, and projects throughout the world. Now we’d like to bring you even more content and offer it in the best format possible, no matter what platform you are on. We feel we owe it to all the creators out there who've put in the time to make their work unique and awesome. We owe it to them to bring you their work looking and sounding the way they designed it.
Now we’d like to take our online magazine into the digital future with brand new apps customized for Android and iOS. We also want to give you better ways to discover media on demand because we believe that’s what you want: the freedom to openly explore all kinds of different content, no matter what you’re interested in or where you are!
Why Do We Need Your Help?
Here at DashBurst, we believe that free expression is key to achieving a more just world. And we hope our magazine can play a small part in the open exchange of ideas and information.
To provide you with this opportunity to explore the content you love on the go, we will need to develop some cutting-edge apps. Now, making these awesome apps across all the platforms you might use won’t be easy, so that is why we need your help! We have a small and hardworking team willing to put in the effort to make this happen, but we can’t do it without you.
With your support, we hope to give you the most beautiful mobile apps possible. We are looking to develop a DashBurst app that works on all kinds of devices, be it an Apple iPhone, iPad, Google Nexus or Samsung Galaxy.
We want to provide you with an app fully equipped with all the useful and rewarding features you want from a news reader, like:
Easy on-the-go browsing of our magazine content
Alerts when important news breaks in your favorite areas of interest like social media, business, technology and design
Notifications when content goes viral, so you never miss a cool new song or video again
Full customization options to follow any assortment of categories or media you like
Quick sharing and scheduling capabilities to popular social platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, StumbleUpon, Tumblr, Reddit, Evernote, Instapaper, Pocket and more
We will pour our sweat and tears into the development effort, but when it comes down to it, in order for us to build all this and build it right, we’re also going to have to spend a few dollars. In truth, we need your help to raise the $15,000 needed to build our apps with the following expenses:Android Apps for phones and tablets: $7,500
iOS Apps for iPhones and iPads: $7,500
Here at DashBurst, our hard-working team truly believes that everyone should have access to content that tickles their fancy. Whether you’re into the latest news, that little bit of humor midday, awe-inspiring photos, a fix for facts and stats, or whatever else, DashBurst has it. And with your help, now you can have it any place, any time. We will not rest until it is so! Because when a community of dedicated and creative people get together, well, anything is possible.
What Do You Get?
If we reach our funding goal, no matter how much you donate, you will receive access to all the Android, iPhone and iPad apps that we develop the very minute they become available!

Risks and challenges
Over the course of the past year, our team has worked diligently to learn the scope of the mobile marketplace to better understand its technical requirements and our own development limitations.
While the web offers us an amazing opportunity to take our message to a global audience, delivering our content consistently across the many different devices you use to connect is an awesome challenge. We’re excited to take on this challenge for both Android and iOS.
Like most worthwhile endeavors, this project is not without its risk in completion time. We’re proud of what we've been able to accomplish with a small team and web based magazine, though, and are confident we can continue to deliver great content no matter where the digital future takes us.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
