WHAT IS ZERO CODES OVERLOAD??
Our platform was born with the mission of developing a series of simple tools that allow any user, without any technical or programming knowledge, to create and publish functional mobile applications and with modern and really effective designs. If you want to know more about our company and our goal, please read the third point of this presentation, here we are going to focus on this new campaign.
Now, after almost two years in operation and with the support of more than 400 users we want to continue improving our platform and at the same time strengthen our model, for this reason we need to open a new round of financing.
We are starting this new campaign by popular request of many of our users and that will include many improvements never seen before on any other platform.
Many of our users are using our tool to open new sales channels in their businesses, of which we are very proud, and that is why they are demanding some functionalities focused on that. This new update is based on that, new features that help improve the monetization of applications and that also enhance the online presence of any business. To be able to develop and implement them on the platform, the collaboration of current and new users in the financing of the project is necessary and therefore we have launched this new campaign, with the confidence that all our users have given us in the previous two ;)
In this first point of this presentation we will talk about the new features that will finance this campaign and in the second and third points you have the presentation of previous campaigns for those of you who do not know the project.
1.- NEW FEATURES
- Games Module: turn your app into a money generating machine! The new Games Module will allow you to add HTML5 games in your Apps with only a few clicks using your own custom games or using our game addon! We will include 5 FREE games with this new feature, but you will be able to add as many as you want/need.
- SMS Module: this new feature will allow you to send SMS messages directly from the Zero Codes editor. This means that you can send personalized bulk SMS messages or individual SMS messages to your list of contacts. Use it for your marketing campaigns as an alternative or complement to push notifications in order to maximize your campaign effectiveness!
- Image Gallery: this is a private gallery that can be added to any App. The user will be able to take a picture or upload his own photos to the gallery and can decide to sharing with friends. The default sharing mechanism on iOS and Android is used on this module so that users can invite friends with their regular messaging apps, Facebook, etc.
- Auto Push Notifications Module: this new module will allow to send automatic pushes when a specific event/trigger is happening. It is a very powerful tool to engage customers and improve the APP experience. You can delivery contents periodically to customers based on a Funnel of Push Notifications.
When one of these events/trigger is happening we are able to start a FUNNEL OF PUSH, a sequence of an unlimited number of pushes scheduled to be sent automatically to the user. Every push has a delay of hours or days from the previously push selected.
For example, is it possible to set up a welcome push notification immediately after the registration of a new user inside the App and schedule every 7 days an automatic push sent to the user for an entire year!!
- Iframe & EAN/QR Scanner Module: allows to embed any website HTTPS in an easy way, just add the URL of your website. Allows to manage the “return back” to the home page with a simple icon on top (home icon).
By selecting QR/EAN code scanner you are able to add in the Iframe a nice banner on the bottom of the screen where is possible to SCAN any QR and EAN code and parse the result in a query string URL (GET) to an external website.
- Donation Feature: are you looking for a way to monetize your Apps?This new feature will allow you to receive donation through the most user friendly payment gateway of the moment: Stripe (Also supporting 2Checkout, and Paypal).
App Store has blocked your app because it uses webview instead of going by safari to receive donation? It won’t be the case anymore with Donation module which doesn’t use any webview to proceed credit card payments. It’s entirely native. No webview. If it’s necessary, you can opening the payment on Safari (only IOS)
- Appointments Feature: this is a new powerful that will allow you to take appointments using the App. This module is linked to the Progressive Loyalty Card and loyalty points can be accumulated automatically on any different type of services. Additionally, through a web front-end interface, the App owner can add appointments to the calendar for walk-in or phone customer requests.
This feature is ideal for the following types of businesses/professionals: hairdresser, barbershop, SPA, manicure, dentist, veterinary, handyman, lawyer, astrologer, etc. Any professional that sells services in time-slots can benefit from having his bookings available via de App. No more losing business while everyone else is busy tending to other customers.
- Progressive Loyalty Card: this module will allow you to launch a loyalty program and reward your customers as they buy from you. By giving customers smaller rewards from the first points they accumulate, you make your customers more loyal. No need to wait until the card is completed to reward your customers!
You can accumulate points from the Mcommerce feature, the MobilCart and Appointments modules automatically.
With a powerful reporting engine, you can easily identify your most loyal customers and how many rewards are used. You will also get an estimate on the sales that the loyalty program is generating. If you have a take-out business, you’ll be able to remotely validate the points after each purchase. Finally, you can track the employees who validate the points and the rewards so that fraud is under control.
- Club Card/Reward Feature: this new module will allow you to launch an airline style membership club card. This module will help you work long-term customer loyalty and should be used together with the Progressive Loyalty module which was created to focus on short-term loyalty. With the Club Card module, you’ll be able to differentiate your clients based on the loyalty card points they accumulate during their lifetime. 20% of your customers are responsible for 80% of your margin. With the Club Card module you can focus on the clients that generate the most value for your business.
Whereas the loyalty card modules will only account for the points of one specific card, the Club Card module will take into account all the points accumulated in all the loyalty cards the user has ever had.
- From here we leave you with the previous campaign of the project with which we made a big update with a lot of new features:
2.- As seen on ZERO CODES RELOADED....
We have decided to start a new round of financing to raise funds in order to implement a series of improvements, enhance the speed and stability of the platform and ensure its durability over time.
In addition to expanding the catalog of templates, we will implement a series of improvements that have been requested and agreed by our users. We listen to you and we want you to continue being part of our family! ;)
- Let's talk first about the new improvements that we are sure you will love all:
- Export/Import feature: with this new feature our users will be able to download pages from their app and then upload them to a new app. This way you will avoid a lot of work! You will not have to re-customize the pages of your app again, with a simple button you will be able to export and import complete pages.
- iOS Auto Publish service: you will no longer need to get a Mac to compile your iOS apps! We will eliminate the hassle by having your iOS apps automatically submitted to iTunes. By using a simple form your app will be sent to our build server which will compile it and send it to the iTunes account of your choice. During the process all the certificates will be created automatically for you!
- App Icon Maker: we all know how difficult and time consuming it is to create unique and good looking icons and startup images. If we don’t have unique images our App has good chances of getting rejected from App stores. This new feature is going to change this! Now you will be able to can make unique and professional icons in a few clicks without any technical knowledge.
- Individual Push Notifications: imagine selecting users individually or by group, and send a specific push notification. That’s what you will be able to do with this new feature ;)
- Inbox Feature: this feature will allow you to send private messages with specific content to users, individually. They receive your direct messages in their app inbox, and they can answer to it! You can add videos, images, and attachments to your messages. This is very useful in many cases: for restaurants to confirm reservation, for doctors to send a medical file to a patient, etc. The users can answer to the messages, just like with emails.
- Search Feature: you will be able to add a search bar on home screen of the App that allows your users to search across all the features via nice search bar.
- Your own taxi app Feature: with this new feature you can create your own taxi business! Whether you are managing your own fleet from one to hundreds of taxis, or you want to offer a service of passengers driving in your city, everything you need is covered with this feature.
- Review Feature: you will be able to invite your users to leave a review on the store from your App! This feature can redirects your users directly to the store ready to leave a review. It will be customizable with richtext and image and work with Google Play and App Store.
- Complex Forms Feature: you will be able to easily integrate amazing forms on your apps. The data entries will be saved on a database, data will be sent by mail and exportable to CSV or JSON, 11 field types, redirection to specific feature afterwards, fine-graind configurations, and nice and modern ui/ux.
- Knowledge Base (Q&A) Feature: this new feature is a forum like feature based on Quora. It allows users to ask questions to the community and help other users by replying to queries. Tags can be defined to classify different topics so that the searches are more easily performed!
- Smart Ads Feature: this new feature will display targeted full screen in-app ads to your app users. The uses for this module are quite varied. For example, when publishing a new App version users don’t always update it from the stores and the new features will not work. With this module you can force users to update to the latest release by providing a link to the App store and preventing them from continuing. Also, you can use an Ad to explain how a new feature works or communicate a Happy Hour promotion. You’ll be able to create text ads directly on the Editor or upload image Ads.
All the new functions and designs that we have described so far are going to be implemented on the platform as soon as this funding campaign ends. In addition to that, we have decided to invest in a more powerful server because, although for now there has been no problem, if the user base continues to grow we will need more storage and processing capacity.
- And here we leave you with the presentation of the project with which our users gave us their confidence for the initial launch of the platform:
3.- Intro to ZERO CODES Co.
We are in the 21st century, the era of information, practically all the knowledge of the human being is available just a few clicks, behind are the days when it was necessary to memorize large amounts of information.
In addition, today there are many tools that help us simplify the most tedious tasks and allowing us not to spend so much time in our lives in memorizing data, so we can dedicate ourselves to what really matters.
Our way of communicating has changed and online presence is essential for all types of companies and even for people. Everything revolves around the network, we all have the right to claim our space on the network and with this philosophy our company is born.
In this first project we want to get anyone to be able to create mobile apps in a simple and effective way but at the same time powerful, having a design and a utility equal to that which may have another that has been programmed from scratch.
Everyone knows that programming is complicated and often frustrating ...
This does not have to be that way, we want everyone to be able to create apps without needing to know anything about programming, for that purpose the machines are already there!
...the machines or maybe your cat ...
How? It's really easy, you bring the most important thing, THE IDEA, our interface will take care about everything else. You only have to select what features you want to include in your app, fill in your content (text, images, videos, etc.) and finally generate your file automatically from our server, you do not need to know anything else, it's that simple!
The idea is that from the same web the user can face the whole process of creation of the app: design, development, production, compilation and publication. For this we will have a simple interface where all the elements of development will be organized.
Here is a small sample of its appearance:
The basis of our system is a Siberian based editor together with Amazon servers, which will ensure stability and sufficient power for the platform.

From the first moment of the launch the app builder will be MULTILANGUAGE! , available in multiple languages: English, Spanish, Greek, Chinese, French, Turkish, Catalan, Dutch, Russian, Czech, German, Portuguese and Italian.
And in addition, of course, and although it is not entirely necessary due to the simplicity of its use, all users will have access to video tutorials that will cover the entire process of creating apps on the web. EVERYONE will be able to publish their apps in a matter of minutes!
In case that the money raised to start the project exceeds the necessary amount, we will publish stretch goals that will be chosen by all our funders. We would like our future users to decide which other tools they would like to have available on the web!
What makes us unique?
- New design focused on usability.
- We will not charge for the number of apps, they are unlimited!
- We do not charge any percentage of the in-app advertising, all the profits are complete for app owners.
- The generation of the app is absolutely simple, just press a button and the compiled file will be downloaded!
- The software of the platform IS OF OUR PROPERTY, we do not depend on third parties, in this way the durability is ensured in time and future updates.
- All our users will have a complete video tutorials of ALL THE FEATURES to be able to work from the first moment with ease.
The money raised will be used to pay for software licenses that will be implemented on the web, as well as servers rental and installation.
All users who support us in the Kickstarter launch will receive a lifetime account as a reward, they will never have to pay anything else, neither for this tool nor for others that we can implement in the future.
On the contrary, future users of the platform that subscribe outside the funding period will have to pay a monthly fee to use our tools. In this way we make sure we have funds to maintain and expand the platform in the future.
9000€ - User Import/Export module: this new feature will allow you to import an existing database of users, creating user accounts and generating a welcome email.
