About this project

It’s an entirely anonymous social media app!

"Feelings" is a place where you can express how you feel at any moment in time using both pictures and text, whilst remaining entirely anonymous.

You can post both positive and negative feelings and get responses to them from other members.

The idea came when the app's developer, Johann Vassallo, received some life changing news that was not for sharing. It evoked an enormous feeling of excitement within him, but it had to be kept secret. He had no-where to express his feelings, nowhere, that is, that wouldn’t let everyone know his personal business as it wasn't anonymous! 

So, that’s how the blueprint for "Feelings" was born!

After working hard on it with colleagues Ngoc and Ivan, it was finally ready for the public. It was launched on Google Play in May 2015 with no PR or Marketing and in just a couple of months it has gained over 150 active members and is still growing.

"Feelings" has been selected to attend the ALPHA program at the Web Summit in Dublin, this November. It is one of the biggest tech conferences on the planet and "Feelings" will be there!

Sometimes, things we need and want to keep secret evoke feelings in us and it can be very frustrating not having an outlet for it.

Life is about feelings - what we feel drives us, in every aspect of our lives!

More than just social media.....

"Feelings" can be the first step in reaching out, for those among us who are struggling on a day to day basis. If you're feeling weak, lonely, troubled, depressed or unloved, the app gives you the opportunity to anonymously share your story - often just sharing what you feel is enough to make us feel better about our situation. It can be the push you need to start on the road to recovery or to actually ask for help!

It's also a way to see that there are other people who are just as vulnerable as you and that you're not abnormal. Getting praise and encouragement from an unknown source is a great way to boost confidence and make you feel better about things.

You can express your anger, voice your opinion and have that needed outburst or rant. Did you do something you regret and find it hard to admit you're wrong or say sorry? "Feelings" allows you to acknowledge you're at fault and start to take responsibility for your actions.

It's literally a way of "getting things off your chest" but without the consequences!

Once the feelings app has been downloaded and you have registered as a user, you are ready to make your first post! 

You can choose the emotion closest to how you feel, add text and /or photos and use filters to enhance your "feeling". 

And then post! It's as simple as that! You can like other people's posts and comment on them, choose avatars that represent you and have as much anonymous fun as you like, as long as you don't break the rules!

There are lots of different avatars available, along with quotes from famous people and many other features we want to add. The more posts and comments you make, the more features you will unlock and be able to use.

"Feelings" has its very own goal!

The goal of sharing our feelings! It can calculate how users are feeling around you and eventually, around the whole world.

The aim of "Feelings" is to reflect the pulse of the world and this will be tested with any huge world events or situations that arise and generate a lot of public interest.

The graph shows an evaluation of all the feelings being posted by our users at any one given time. 

The generated graph shows us how our users are feeling. If a world event takes place it will show the effect it has on Feelings' members. In the future we want to show geographical information as well, which will reflect the different feelings people have around the globe.

The team has developed "Feelings" as far as their resources will allow, spending countless hours with the app's prototypes, polishing the interface and refining the design. 

The app remains in its infant stage on the programming level and the application is only currently available on android devices. We need your support to be able to finish the development of "Feelings" on all platforms and to acquire a better server. 

We have lots of plans for expansion possibilities, and we feel Kickstarter is the perfect platform to enable us to realise the full potential of "Feelings".

Together we can make "Feelings" a more exciting reality!

 €10,000 - this will enable us to finish the iOS version of "Feelings".

€30,000 – Within 6 months we will be able to finish the iOS and Windows versions of "Feelings" and provide servers in the US.

€60,000 - Within 12 months we will be able to finish the iOS and Windows versions of "Feelings", provide worldwide servers and finish the Feelings “How Happy is the World?” graph - enabling it to analyse the worldwide data.

€120,000 – Not only will this enable us to finish the iOS and Windows versions of Feelings, provide worldwide servers and finish the Feelings “How Happy is the World?” graph - enabling it to analyse the worldwide data, it will allow us to provide support and administration for "Feelings "until December 2017.

Where can I get the app?

And please tell us what you think about the app and our ideas for 'Feelings', enabling it to be the most exciting social network available!!!

Are there good reporting & anti bullying settings in place?

We have endeavoured to provide a good reporting system on the app, which we regularly check. Anything reported is immediately removed until we are able to check it out and decide if it is to be permanently removed or not. 

We will not tolerate users who continually offend other Feelings members and anyone wishing to take this route will be blocked from using Feelings altogether.

Is it updated regularly?

Feelings is updated as regularly as we can – with the right funding, this can be increased to enable the optimum user experience.  

Can your identity be leaked/hacked?

Security is very important to us and we have worked hard to make it as tight as possible to avoid this happening. Funding will enable our security to be at the highest level possible. 

What’s the benefit of participating in this Kickstarter campaign? 

1. You get to enjoy some great rewards

2. You’ll get to know about the progress of the app with regular updates!

3. Your name will be associated with an amazing app – something to show everyone when it becomes a worldwide phenomenon!

Risks and challenges

We are counting on YOU to help us complete this app. Without the required funding, we would have to delay the anticipated development of Feelings.

We are ready to do the work and deliver a great App!

Creating an amazing app is extremely difficult - polishing it and making sure it's bug free can be very time consuming, especially if we are limited with our budget and capabilities. We understand the potential challenges as well as the time commitment involved. We have set a deadline for the project to be completed, and everyone will stay updated as we go!

Meticulous in our planning, we always leave room for manoeuver should we feel the need to alter an aspect of the planning. Our team is hard working and if any deadlines are missed for whatever reason, we work day and night to reach our targets.
