INTRODUCING CAMFIND

What happens when you see something while you’re out and about and want to know more, but don’t know what it is called? How do you search for it? CamFind to the rescue!

CamFind is a free iOS app that utilizes mobile visual search technology. What does that mean? It means you no longer have to type into a search engine to find information! All you have to do is take a picture of any product or object and CamFind will accurately recognize what you photographed and provide you with a wide variety of information and choices.

HOW IT MAKES YOUR LIFE EASIER

See someone wearing a pair of shoes that you’ve gotta have? Curious about a movie poster you passed on the street? Want to know what year Monet painted that artwork you saw in the museum? CamFind can help!

A CamFind user can take a picture, have it identified by CamFind and then be prompted with the following options:

  • Internet Search Results
  • Related/Similar Images
  • Price Comparisons and Online Shopping
  • Related Places and Address Finder
  • Film Poster Recognition
  • Social Sharing

Whaaaat? Yeah… and it gets better! CamFind also offers the following time- saving functions:

  • Language Translator
  • QR and Barcode Reader
  • Text Search
  • Voice Search
  • Voiceover of Identified Objects
  • Automatic Flash
  • Automatic Focus
  • Ability to Save Images to the Camera Roll/Upload Images from Camera Roll

CamFind also has plans to include a Premier Service. It will consist of several specialists in various fields, such as fashion, automotive, food, technology, etc... A premier user will see this enhanced information automatically.

CamFind will be released with only the fashion specialist at first. However, with support we can bring you other specialists much sooner.

And we don’t plan to stop there, either. We will continue to work hard to keep CamFind as your number one search engine by updating it as technology improves and as your needs change.

Most importantly, CamFind will be free for download in the AppStore.

WHO IS BEHIND THIS?

As you can imagine, it takes a dedicated and passionate group of people to come up with an app as awesome as CamFind. We’re a unique team comprised of individuals from all backgrounds and cultures. In fact, all key members of the CamFind team were born in different countries.

The Founders, Dominik Mazur (an engineer and helicopter pilot) and Brad Folkens (an engineer and part-time photographer), met during college in 2002 and immediately started working together. Today, their website portfolio, which includes the JRank search engine and StateUniversity.com, reaches over 75 million Internet users across the world each year.

After their triumph in the Internet world, Dominik and Brad came up with an idea for the technology that became the backend of the mobile visual search engine.

Brad engineered and developed this technology, as well as most of the CamFind itself. He learned Objective-C and iOS Development over a weekend in October 2012, and then dove head-first into the app and has been at work on it ever since.

As you can see, we’re a company that loves learning and progressing—we wouldn’t have gotten to this point if that wasn’t the case. Most of all, we love the way it feels to help others and CamFind allows us to do just that.

NOW WE NEED YOU

We know we’ve created something that will make everyone’s life a little bit easier (and a whole lot cooler!), but in order to get CamFind onto your phone and into your hands, we need your help.

We’ve come this far because our founders and core team members have spent countless hours and even invested their own money. CamFind is almost complete, but we need your help to finish the app and bring it to its full potential. The funds that you help us raise will be used to complete the iPhone app’s development and release.

Make your voice heard and join the CamFind team by backing our campaign today. Tell us what you love and give us your suggestions for improvement. Every penny counts and every idea will be taken seriously. CamFind is currently scheduled for release in the App Store during the second half of April, but we won’t be able to get it out there without your support.

Any extra funds raised here will also support the beginning development of the app for the Android operating system and possibly even Windows phones. We’d love to make CamFind available on all major smartphones and operating systems so everyone can use it and benefit from it.

The money that we receive from your support will be spent on the following items:

  • Hiring more developers to finish the coding and enhance CamFind.
  • Putting the finishing touches on the design work for the user interface.
  • Helping with the costs of the technology behind the app.
  • Sustaining the app after its release.
  • Conducting a successful marketing campaign.
  • Getting started on the development of CamFind for the Android operating system and possibly even Windows phones (depending on the success of the campaign).

CONNECT WITH US

Regardless of the final outcome of our campaign, we want to say THANK YOU for taking the time to learn our story and learn more about CamFind. We value your time, and wouldn’t come to you for help unless we were absolutely sure of our potential.

If you’re unable to help us out financially at this time but agree that CamFind is one of the coolest apps you’ve ever seen, please help us spread the word by sharing our video with others. Stay up-to-date on our progress at our website www.CamFindApp.com. Be sure to connect with us on Facebook.com/CamFind and follow us on Twitter @CamFind, too!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We have done our best to minimize risks up to this point. Currently our main challenge is completing CamFind before the end of May. We have the designers and coders on standby. Right now, we simply need to raise more funds to pay them for their work and turn this app into the truly amazing product that we believe it can be!

CamFind is scheduled for release during the latter part of May, but the exact date cannot be predicted because Apple’s app approval process can take anywhere from a few days to three to four weeks. If dates change for any reason, we will post an update.

Our immediate plan is to release CamFind for iPhone, but any extra funds raised on Kickstarter will also support the start of app development for the Android operating system and possibly Windows phones down the line. Our ultimate goal is to make CamFind available on all major smartphones and operating systems so everyone can benefit from it.
