Risks and challenges

Thank you for considering helping to fund the LDS Mission Prep Xtreme mobile app. The amount of funding raised will determine the amount of time and resources it takes to complete the app project, and which smartphones we can support. At first, I considered a high funding goal that would allow my team to finish quickly and deliver the app on both iOS and Android. However, I feel so strongly about the good this app will do, that I set the minimum funding goal lower to ensure we can deliver at least the iOS app, with stretch goals that allow for a faster delivery schedule, a higher quality user experience and the app on both iOS and Android.

If we reach our minimum goal of $10,000, we will be able to complete a native iOS app. The app will include all our desired features and will be an amazing missionary tool. We’ll continue with our existing team and a full time-app development group. At this funding level we’ll deliver the iOS app on August 30, 2015.

The project stretch goals will take us farther and faster.

If we raise $25,000, we’ll contract with a full mobile development team. With developers, UX and UI designers, and backend developers all on the same team the project will run more smoothly. Using a team with a UX and UI designer will create an even more user friendly, more attractive and better product. In addition, the native iOS app will be ready to go much sooner and will be ready by June 30, 2015.

Why are we focusing on the iOS app first? With the talent of my volunteer team, this is the platform we've been able to develop to the point we are at currently. Thus, it will be the fastest to complete.

If an additional $25,000 is raised, we’ll also be able to complete the app in the same way for Android devices.

Another $25,000, will allow the app to be available in multiple languages and have a professional web page, marketing, and advertising. With everything that needs to be done to deliver my complete vision for this app, $75,000 is my ideal stretch goal.

Any funding that exceeds the needs for the development and success of the app will be donated to the LDS Church’s Mission fund.

I'm excited to launch an app to help our youth prepare for their missions. The LDS Mission Prep Xtreme app can help accomplish this by encouraging youth to be responsible and excited about their own missionary preparation! What better way for youth to prepare than by using the tool they are most familiar with and excited about: their smartphone and social media!

Thank you for making this project a reality!
