Traccar project started as a simple device communication back-end for single type of cheap Chinese tracking devices and grown into fully featured tracking system with support for more that 50 various protocols.
Traccar Client is an application that allows to transform any mobile device with networking and GPS capabilities into a tracking device. There is already a version for Android operating system with total more than 5000 downloads.
Apple iOS development is much more expensive than Android, so I am starting this Kickstarter campaign to cover the costs. Prototype of the application is ready and tested on iOS emulator. If project gets funding I expect the first version of the app to be available in the App Store within a few weeks.
All Traccar applications are free and open source and this project will not be an exception.
Each $120 on top of original goal will add one year of updates (Apple developer program costs 99 USD per year).
Risks and challenges
As I work on this project in my spare time, the main concern is a lack of time, but the risk is minimal because application code is almost complete and there is already a working prototype. I have been contributing to various open source project for more than two year now, you can verify that by looking at my GitHub page (https://github.com/tananaev).Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
