What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Pocketmod has been around for over a decade and although it started as a little personal organizer, people from all over the world are using pocketmods in super cool and unique ways! From mini recipe books, to tracking workouts, in healthcare, studying for tests, and gaming! 

Stretch Goal #1 - $1500

Stretch goal #1 - FUNDED! Gaming Pocketmod Templates will be a added! Our designer is excited to add gaming pocketmod templates to the new Pocketmod site, she already has a list of ideas and is happy you made it possible for her to make them! 

Stretch Goal #2 - $1750

Stretch goal #2 - Pocketmod paper! We spoke to a local paper making company last week about making special Pocketmod paper you can use in your home printer. This pocketmod paper will currently be available in US Standard Letter size 8.5x11 only. It will have pre-scored folding lines to make its super easy to fold, and a perforated center so you can just tear the cut line instead of using scissors. In order to make this happen we need to purchase a special Pocketmod die for the machine. Then we can purchase paper in bulk and offer it at a great rate on the new pocketmod store. When we reach this goal, we will give all backers a promo code for a FREE 25-pack of paper to try it out! (minus exact shipping, which should just be a few dollars for US shipping rates.) 

Basic Pocketmod & Premium Pocketmodder Pledge Levels : will receive a promo code for a free pack of Pocketmod paper!

Lifetime Premium Pocketmodder & Ultimate Pocketmod Fan Pledge Levels : will receive two promo codes for two free packs of Pocketmod paper!

*** European and A4 size pocketmod users, if this is something you would also really like, please send us an email at support@pocketmod.com and if there is enough interest we could look into a purchasing a second die for A4 paper sizes

The Pocketmod website has served us well over the years, but it's getting old, outdated, and and starting to break. It’s time to give PM an update so it works great on web and mobile. 

Pocketmod is going to get a complete makeover - new website, new application, new templates, and a place to share your pocketmods with others.

Pocketmod started free, and will continue to be free. By backing Pocketmod, you are supporting the programmer to take time off to rebuild and redevelop Pocketmod into a great new product. It also costs to run and host the website, all which Pocketmod has offered to users for free for over a decade. Many of you have generously given Pocketmod donations over the years, but it only brings in about $25-$50 in total a year from donations. Not very much, but enough to keep the domain and host up and running. 

By backing this product, not only are you helping to get pocketmod up and running again, but a thank you, you will have early access to the beta pocketmod before anyone else does 

In addition to the above, you will also get a permanent badge of honor which means when the new site is released, your user profile will contain special features that others won’t have access to.

Now, if you want something extra special- we've got you covered! Keep reading below:

Besides the complete makeover, we have decided to offer a premium membership for users to have the ability to login and store their favorite pocketmods online. This has been a very popular request over the years and we are finally going to make this happen. This will not be a free service, but it will be optional and at the very low cost of $2 per month. 

We will also give premium members unlimited access to brand new never before seen premium templates, as well as access to a whole new and improved PDF converter!

Additionally, some pledge levels will give you the premium membership at a super reduced cost, which will only be offered on this Kickstarter. 

Like mentioned earlier, Pocketmod is going to get a complete makeover which means :

- Brand new website. This website will be hip, new, fast, and easy to use.

- New application. The new application will work right in your browser and won't require any downloads or installations.

- New templates. All the templates will be redone and updated to function well and look great!

- Sharable space. A place to view other Pocketmodders creations.

- User login. This will be an optional feature. There will be a free login that will give you access to the sharable space and allow you to interact and download pocketmods that others have shared. There will also be a subscription based login that will give you access to bonus features, pocketmod storage, and sharing.

Basic Free Pocketmod - Access to the new application and ability to make free pocketmods! Access to all the pocketmod templates you know and love and have used over the years! Access to a user login which gives you the ability to interact and download pocketmods that others have shared!

Premium Membership - All the above plus... Premium user login membership! Premium fun new pocketmod templates! Ability to store your favorite pocketmods online! Access to a new and improved PDF converter! Ability to share your favorite pocketmods with others!

Basic Pocketmod - $5 - You will get early access to use the new pocketmod before everyone else!

Pocketmod Test Run - $10 - You will get early access to use the new pocketmod before everyone else! Plus you will get a 1 year Premium Membership for a fraction of the cost. This is great for those of you new to Pocketmod and want to try before you buy. Normal membership will be $2/month (or $24/year) which means you'll receive a $24 value for 10 bucks!

Premium Pocketmodder - $25 - You will get early access to use the new pocketmod before everyone else! Plus you will get a 5 year Premium Membership for a fraction of the cost. This is for those of you that love Pocketmod and have been using Pocketmod for years and want some new special goodies to play with. Normal membership will be $2/month (or $24/year) which means you'll receive a $120 value for 25 bucks!

Lifetime Premium Pocketmodder - $100 - You will get early access to use the new pocketmod before everyone else! Plus you will get an unlimited Premium Membership for a fraction of the cost. This is for those of you that love Pocketmod and have been using Pocketmod for years and want some new special goodies to play with FOREVER (or as long as Pocketmod exists, and we plan on keeping it up and running for at least your lifetime) Anything we add new over the years, will also be added to your account. 

Ultimate Pocketmod Fan - $150 - You will get the Lifetime Premium Pocketmoddder pledge goal, PLUS we are gonna send you some swag.  We'll have a few t-shirt designs for you all to vote on!

 

Risks and challenges

The pre-planning stages are wrapping up, and I've already started development on the product in my free time. I will be dedicating March to full development of the new website and application with an expected beta release before April and full release soon after that.

The great thing about an online service is there are no hold ups of product production and shipments, so the turnaround time of this kickstarter project will be super fast.
