About this project
What is it?
Dog Parks is an app for Windows Phone & Windows 8 that will help you find off-leash dog parks nearby, read and write reviews, view images and share the parks you like with friends via Facebook or Twitter. You will also be able to find parks near a specific city, or zip code using the search tool.
Each park profile will include helpful information including parks fees, hours, size and if public restrooms are nearby.
We are also planning on adding dog daycare and boarding facilities, veterinarians, groomers and other dog friendly businesses to the search results.
Our database will not just include parks in the United States, we are also going to be adding parks in the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. Not all locations will be available at launch, but over time more locations will become available.
What Will My Donations Go Towards?
If funded, this app will be available to download for free from the Windows Store for at least 1 year. Your donations will pay for:
- Development of the App
- Database Creation
- Database Hosting & Maintenance
- Website Hosting & Maintenance
- Marketing the App
If funded, we expect to have this app completed within 8 months. We want to make sure that we deliver the best possible user experience, and will thoroughly test every aspect of the app before it is released. Backers that qualify to be beta testers should expect to have access to a beta version within 6 months, this will give us time to make changes before the app is released to the public. The beta will only be available for Windows Phone.
Risks and challenges
The Dog Parks app faces the usual risks and challenges of app development. We have the experience needed to complete this project. We will keep our backers informed and if we run into any problems that delay the development of the app, we will let them know how we are dealing with the problem.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
