About this project

Story

     We're three Austinites who are passionate about food, always seeking to share what we eat with people everywhere! We came together because all of us have a passion for discovering new places to eat and trying out new dishes at different restaurants. 

     Through our experiences we realized we wanted to create an innovative and creative way for people to share their favorite dishes and food experiences with like-minded people. We want to create a community for foodies to upload pictures of foods they've had or even made themselves to a platform where things are easily organized and categorized so that it would be easier to discover new foods.

      People need a way to share their food experiences. People need an outlet to announce their food discoveries. People also need a way to discover different types of food. Our goal is to do just those and become the medium that people use to further the food tech revolution. Because sometimes, life is about the smaller things and getting to capture those moments with others. Our goal is to create a community for foodies to be able to share their personal food experiences with individuals just like you and me. So embark on this adventure with us and go Burp it!

As always, every version of the app will be FREE! We're developing on iOS first and expect to have an Android version released by Summer of 2014. We're currently raising funds to help cover costs of server hosting fees, maintaining the website, and scaling our product.

The timeline for the project is as follows:

Mid-March: Finish receiving financial support.

June/July: Release v1 in private beta, test to see what changes need to be made, and iterate. 

August: Launch complete project.

Thank you for your support! 

Risks and challenges

As with most apps, we might encounter risks and challenges along the way including: bugs in the iOS code and Apple app store review process. However with the money we raise, we will make sure the app will be out on the appstore by late summer for anyone to download!
