What is Letzgo?
Letzgo is a free smartphone application that allows users to "Find" and "Form" pickup games. To find a game, users can bring up a map of their current location that has pins indicating locations where people have posted pickup games. Selecting a pin brings up information about what the game is, what time the game starts, and a description of the game. Letzgo also allows users to form a game inputting the time, place, and description. Users then have the option to post to their own Facebook wall, invite friends on their Facebook walls, and/or make the event "public" so that it shows up on the public map.
Where are we at?
We have launched a Beta version for the Android portion of our application. This summer we plan on debugging Android and finishing the iOS (iPhone) version of our app so that it can be used by both iPhone and Android users (which account for over 75% of all smartphones).
How will we use the Fundageek Funds?
Currently our biggest hurdle is gaining financial support for development and promotion of our app. Server costs, developer fees, graphics, and sound design artists are just a few of the costs associated with the project. We have done a lot work ourselves, but we are at a point where we require more people to provide a quality app.
Our goal is to have both versions of the app available this Spring when classes resume at our university. We want people to try it out and support us in bringing it to the world for free. We hope Letzgo will be a revolution in fitness that everyone can enjoy!
