My name is Julius and I am developing a communication app
So I’ve had this vision for an app that helps people connect in a more intimate way than we currently do now with our smart phones. This has been stuck in my head for a long time and have downloaded dozens of apps on my Android, iPhone, Windows Phone, and even bought a BlackBerry to see if there was something out there that had a similar vision. None have accomplished what I have in mind, in fact I shared a small part of my plan with my friends over at TENDIGI and they developed an iOS app called Fever which was influenced by my thoughts shared with them in Brooklyn.
Before I dive into what this blog is about I will give some background information on me. I was born and raised in New York City, I play XBOX, I watch sports, my dog’s name is Bella and I work a part-time job. I studied communications in college and I am just a regular guy trying to help people communicate better. I am still learning swift in my down-time and I am about to take a course to help better understand this new programming language. My previous experience with apps? I was involved in an android project called WallDroid, which was only half baked and then scrapped. I also ran the VGRequirements project on the web and iOS app that was released many years ago.
So why start this blog? I will be sharing my thoughts on a different social network and why I think they are not doing a great job at building new connections or strengthening old ones. I will also be sharing some of my thoughts on the way people communicate and share some material of what I have learned in the thousands of hours of research that has been put into this project thus far. Progress updates will be scattered and I don’t want to give a timetable for launch. The app will be released when it’s done and I am comfortable releasing it. Please don’t categorize it as a social network, because it’s different from what we generally think about when talking about social networking applications or websites. Please don’t categorize it as a dating app, because it’s much more than that. More details coming soon, I promise.
The title of my project is not set yet
Oh, and I am available to hire for those intrigued with the nuggets of information so far. Drop me a line at julius [at] juliuskodes.com to set something up.
