Are you in the market for a new car, but tired of the same boring car ads with static pictures? If the answer is yes there’s a better three dimensional way coming to a web site near you.

The Kickstarter campaign called Smart 360 Imaging is a simple, cost effective, and mobile solution to creating smart 360° images for car ads or really anything else that requires a more engaging experience. The Showaround concept was created by Xin Wang. One day he discovered that there is no easy way to create a 360° views around an object. Of course there are professional studios that will make a 360 degree image, but the costs are still too high. Showaround enables users to capture a multi-angle views of an object using just a smartphone device and then integrate the view easily, without hassle.

Location Based Mobile App Skout Deals

  • Comments Off on Location Based Mobile App Skout Deals

Remember the days when you’d go to a web site, find something you like, go to checkout and then see the promo code box? You’d freak out and start frantically searching web sites like 9malls.com or RetailMeNot for coupon codes only to realize there are none available. A couple named Alice and Bryan Payne felt your pain and began developing the next generation of coupon/discount shopping, but this time instead of you searching for the coupon the coupon finds you.

Yes, you heard right the coupon code actually finds you using location based tracking. Alice and Bryan Payne were avid seekers of the best deal. King and Queens of discount shopping, but the pursuit of finding the best price started to become a full time job. They wanted and needed a faster way of finding deals, but there simply wasn’t anything out there. That’s why in 2014, Payne founded Skout Deals, which offers a free location-based deals app.

Download Skout Deals Today:

Skout Deals Mobile App

Sounds Great, But What Does The App Do Exactly?

“We want to take all the deals from all the brick-and-mortar merchants and let you automatically find deals on items nearby,” Payne says. “Or you can save what you’re looking for — a certain restaurant or a pair of pants — and we notify you when there’s a deal.”

Today the app gives users a whopping 50,000 deals per day! That’s more deals that you could redeem in a lifetime most likely. In August, Skout Deals signed a nationwide partnership with Walmart and Best Buy.

Who Uses This App

The whole concept of coupon codes from paper to internet I think has gone a bit stale, people are desperately searching for an easier way. For this reason the app is taking off in a big way. Skout Deals has 100,000 members nationwide, including 13,000 in Austin TX alone. They say everything is bigger in Texas, including the discounts and user base.

How Does This Company Make Money?

“The company makes money from merchants, with rates ranging from $69 to $199 a month. There is also a free plan that includes one deal a month and no analytics or social media promotions.”

Who Are They

“Who they are: Payne is a veteran yearbook industry executive, where he was a pioneer of online yearbook creation web apps. He was most recently president of Picaboo Yearbooks, which sells online yearbook software.”

Conclusion

100,000 users may sound like a lot, but in order to get this thing even bigger its going to take a lot of work. One problem is getting people to download the app and second it’s getting merchants interested in the product. Help make Skout Deals even more of a success download their app today and if you are a small business they offer a 30 day free trial.

  • Comments Off on Keeping Teachers Teaching Foundation

I think it’s safe to say that other than your parents and friends teachers are the most important influence on a young persons life. That’s why it’s so important that we as a society not take good education for granted. Good education is not a guarantee. There’s a Arizona based organization helping to ensure that called Keeping Teachers Teaching Foundation who’s mission is to “Provide for our teachers so they keep providing for our future.”

Visit KTT:

https://www.keepingteachersteaching.org/

Keeping Teachers Teaching, Inc. (KTT) is a one-of-a-kind nonprofit organization devoted to the needs of teachers. They reality is some school districts are very well funded, but others are not. KTT targets those communities with reduced budgets and supports those teachers in need. For those that think teachers make enough money already and schools get enough of our tax money as it is I say this simply isn’t the case in all areas. I had a college professor here in Washington State once say that said the issue isn’t enough money, at least for my University. It’s about money being spent on the bureaucracy of running the school, a tiny percentage goes to the actual teachers. He went on to say that teachers would be very well off if teachers earned the bulk of money coming into the University. I think my old professor and the goals of KTT are in-line. The goal ultimately is to prioritize teachers, make them first.

Keeping Teachers Teaching

Mission

“KTT provides support and much needed resources for required professional development trainings, networking opportunities, community involvement, scholarships for continuing education, certifications, health and wellness programs, and a variety of free or discounted local services. Our long-term goals are to inspire educators on a state and national level. The assurance of a quality education can only be provided to our children by educators who can give their best to an increasingly demanding profession.”

Keep Teachers Teaching AZ

Special Programs?

KTT offers several fundraising programs. These include the Just 10 AZ Challege where residents of Arizona are encourages to donate $10. 2nd program is called Strive-To-Thrive Total Wellness For Teachers which “incorporates proven, evidence-based activities that are designed to enhance academic learning and student outcomes during a Teacher’s typical work day. The program components are based on a comprehensive model of wellness to include physical, psychological and environmental well-being.” The third program is called Discounts For Teachers in which teachers receive discounts on a as needed basis.

Need A Date? Try BOOMBAYA Dating App

  • Comments Off on Need A Date? Try BOOMBAYA Dating App

Are you in desperate need of a date and have already tried all the other dating apps? If the answer is yes than you need to try the BOOMBAYA Dating App. Download the app on Google Play:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.boombayacorp.date.BOOMBAYA_Dating

Lets face it Tinder and Bumble might be an OK way to meet people, but they have extremely unengaging user interfaces. Basically the app subjugates the user to endless left or right swiping. You become a mindless dating drone, endlessly swiping on your quest to happily ever after. Once you get a match there is endless back and forth banter until the date is or isn’t set up. Where’s the fun? That’s what the new dating app BOOMBAYA is trying to solve. They are putting the fun and personality back into dating apps.

BOOMBAYA Dating App

Features of the BOOMBAYA dating app include:

– Check my profile tier ie how attractive you are. Think Hot Or Not from years past. Fun yes? Scary to many, yes as well.

– Also, you can see who liked your profile.

– You will be matched with people who meet your expectations and dating standards. If you live in a city with not many available options rest assured the BOOMBAYA algorithm will do it’s best finding you the best match.

– Super Match. BOOMBAYA has a Super Match option where your potential suitor gets your message instantly.

– Rewind to last match/card.

– Have a wonderful conversation They provide cute emojis which are the best icebreaker in a chat. Have a wonderful and healthy conversation with others.

– Robust report system

Did what I just said sound like the premium version of Tinder or Bumble? With BOOMBAYA you get all this with the free version. With the BOOMBAYA A+ Plus version you get much more. Get unlimited cards and sending likes, more super matches, chat right away, unlimited rewinding last cards, location change, travel anywhere you want, unlock all people who are highly interested in you, and reset your profile tier for unlimited times.

But wait there’s more… Yes, you heard right. To all those finicky daters not satisfied with the free or A+ version there is a VIP version of BOOMBAYA. Become a VIP member and become a King or Queen of online dating. With the VIP upgrade super match is unlimited, chat right away, boost your profile tier up to 2.0x depending on your current tier and be more popular and get more matches, also, all of A+ Plus features are included.

One problem with dating apps is they simply aren’t useful if there isn’t a large enough user base. Even though this might be the case I think BOOMBAYA could take off, download test it out, see if you like it, then get your friends to join. If you live in a city like New York chances are there are enough people on there already. The team at BOOMBAYA has developed algorithm to match users who are active and minimize ghost users for a better experience. So even with less users of Tinder and Bumble, for example, BOOMBAYA has created an app that gives you a fighting chance on finding a date and makes it fun in the process. What a concept.
