About this project
"To make the most out of your connections, you need to try Momensity for once at least. ." - Madhurima Nag, The Gadget Flow
The app only shares the data you want to be matched against.
What is the MOMENSITY app?
Momensity is a social connection app which, if given permission, pulls in information from your Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Google account organizes it looking for patterns and adds Momensity app usage data so when meeting new people ( whom do not have to have the app ) it compares their life to yours and suggests what you'd be most interested to know and value about the other person in a few key areas Career, Professional Connections, Talents and a more in-depth overview of common ground, how they may support you in their life the points of relevance on how the app arrived there...
The entire exchange takes about 10 - 15 seconds depends on signal strength of your mobile device.
Does this only work if the other person has the momensity app?
No. The app works with Android, iPhone, and Windows phones and when you try to share your Momensity with someone they are prompted to download the app and the app pulls their information in from Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other social accounts organizes it and compares it into a Momensity Exchange Card (see below) and shows you what you have in common and other ways to engage each other. Takes on average 10 - 15 seconds depending on phone signal strength to internet.
How does the app know what I want to know about other people?
We have built a netflix-like search algorithm that uses your professional, personal, social and commerce-related data in your other social accounts and Momensity app usage data to predict what you'd be interested to know about people you meet in real-time - takes about 5 - 10 seconds and you get to see it all in an Exchange Card.
Exchange Cards hold your life experiences, talents, resume, passions and more...
Exchange Cards are Momensity profiles
that are created during
registration and with your permission can be made even more valuable by
gathering data from your various social accounts like Facebook,
Linkedin, Twitter and more.
We believe that everyone has deep value and is multi-dimensional but usually when you meet someone new the conversation only reveals 1 or 2 dimensions of who each of you really are. A missed opportunity.
Momensity has two core functions
during social engagements, you walk-up to people and let your phones (via Momensity Exchange Cards) do the small talk it takes about 5 - 10 seconds then both people get a heads-up of possible conversation points like what you have in common, mutual ways of supporting one another in projects and other tasks, and opportunities to exchange in social shopping and other commerce.
outside of social engagements, Exchange Cards can be searched and referenced to reveal new opportunities for engagement and connection. See the video below to see how the Momensity app works as a tool to reconnect and stay engaged:
Exchange Cards® At a Glance:
PROFILE PHOTO GRID: During registration we ask that you upload 3 photos to show sides of yourself people may not expect.
DIG BELOW THE SURFACE to see your new friend's resume, connections, talents.
SMALL TALK, NO MORE; with Momensity at your side you will always know what to talk about and how you connect with any and everyone you meet
DYNAMIC ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE is always working in the background to discover new ways for you to connect and engage with the people you know. As your friends, family and colleagues grow so does the opportunities to connect - Exchange Card® are a glimpse of interpersonal opportunity.
You can limit what can be shown to the people you meet by electing to make them a part of your FRIEND COMMUNITY or FOLLOWER COMMUNITY.
For example, after meeting Emilia Clarke she decides to make you a FRIEND. This is Emilia's momensity:
Another talking point, Momensity reveals is where someone has worked, revealing employment opportunities, expertise, and knowledge that could possibly help you in some way.
You would also be able to review Emilia's Career history
On Momensity, don't just tell us you have a talent; show us! You can upload 30 second videos to show case your talents.
When Emilia share's her Exchange Card she also shares the fact she is a commercial actress; yet another way to connect and engage her.
During testing we found it less important to know who a person's friends are but rather more valuable to learn where a person has contacts.
The next time you need to interact with an organization or business you will know who may have an inside connection to help you.
Looking at Emilia's Connections, you can see where has the following contacts:
Philip Morris USA
Department of State
The College Board
State of Virginia
American Red Cross

Helpful for Everyone
Momensity is the perfect "life-partner app" for everyone! It grows with you and is always trying to anticipate your needs in order to match you with the right people that you need each and every moment of your life.
We plan to release the version for Android and Iphone mobile devices in November 2014, and it will be compatible with ICS 4.0 and later OS's. Windows phones in January 2015.
Who We Are
Momensity mobile app development was started five year ago. Our founder, actually filed for a patent in 2006! We have iterated over 3 major changes including branding through 10,000 person to person market tests, to bring you Momensity in an as polished and innovative form as we could. 2014 is the year we show you our passion.
Check them out! These come with $10 pledges, and are offered as a standalone option.
We have some great new items for you, all branded with the Momensity logo:
Limited Edition T-Shirts White (Male or Female)
WHY DO WE NEED FUNDING?
Designing and programming applications is a complex and continuous process that requires a lot of funding. The money funded we will use to primarily to finish development which we need about 50 days and $10,000 to complete and begin marketing and promotions - which includes a $15,000 national roadshow demonstrations (tradeshows, conferences, exhibitions, meetups)
Risks and challenges
Our team is working hard to meet the deadlines of our roadmap, but there are certain issues that may take place:
1. Surely we have a beta prototype of our app, but it is still in the development process and we don't exclude unpredictable issues. It may take time to solve them.
2. App Store and Google Play reviews usually take up to 14 business days after submission. If they ask us to make changes the release may be postponed. We will make sure that all qualifications meet Apple’s and Google's standards for quicker approval time!
3. If there is a delay in the release of Android version, it may take more time to deliver rewards for backers who has Android devices.
You may find all project updates on our Kickstarter page. We are open for communication, please feel free to ask questions.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
You can limit what people you meet learn about you by electing to make them a part of your FRIEND COMMUNITY (full access) or FOLLOWER COMMUNITY (limited access).
FOLLOWERS are only permitted to see the @ A GLANCE section of your Exchange Card.
The app seems to be moving in a lot of directions, the dating portion and the selling portion just made it a little confusing/overwhelming for me. Why are they included as features?
You do not have to use every part of the app...during market trials. People used Momensity at parties and bars to date.
The store portion was an alpha user request, 6500 requests out of 10,000+ user tests in fact. We found that people liked the idea of their phone promoting their side-projects and businesses especially for those who sold Avon, Mary Kay, insurance, girl scout cookies, did massages, had eBay stores, hairstylists and yard work - just to name a few; so we gave them the store option and the Momensity marketplace was born.
Yes, we have tested with 10,000+ people over 3 years
