I am currently trying raise enough money to develop an app that will utilize a patent pending process for recording and uploading raw footage. Based on some professional feedback, the estimated cost to develop is between $35,000 and $45,000. I would like to use personal funds as well as help from the community to achieve that goal. That cost would cover the complete development and production which could all be completed in about a 6 month timeline.
Why make this app?
Incidents such as home invasions, run-ins with the police turned bad, active shooters, human trafficking, and many more have now become more frequent than ever. The goal of this app is to rapidly upload raw footage that, when using other means to record, may not be able to be sent out to the appropriate party. With crime rates on the rise there is a growing need for evidence and accountability. With the hasty and direct process of uploading, anyone will be able to alert whoever they may need in a moments notice. The app will also contain features for others to notify the appropriate party if need be.
My hope for the long run is not only that this app will be intertwined with local police departments across the nation and even globe, but that the mere sight of a recording phone will discourage someone from committing a harmful act due to the fear of being posted and exposed.
How will it work?
When you first download the app you will need to set up a few things such as: who videos will be sent to (Videos are not required to be public but the option will be available), whether or not you wish to see public videos, and an emergency contact who can be notified additional times by anyone viewing your videos.
The key feature of this app is that it will utilize a patent pending process for video uploading. This process is actually going to be the elimination of any process at all. To record a video you will press and hold the record button as usual, but all that is needed for a video to be uploaded is the release of said button. There will be no second step between recording and posting, this means no confirmation like "are you sure you want to post this?", no edits, no filters, just as soon as the button is released, whatever was just captured becomes posted. This is to ensure that videos are not deleted by a person, such as the one/ones you are feeling the need to record, that do not want the footage seen by others.
There are times where we may find ourselves in dangerous or alarming situations that we don’t have control over, or find that we just don’t the time to react properly. However, when you take a video on this app you will know that, even if you drop your phone or it’s taken by someone, whatever you have just recorded will be sent out to whoever you have preselected on the app and They can take the appropriate action and use the video as needed.
If this sounds like something you would like to support any donations are greatly appreciated! If you would like to learn more about the app please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions, thank you all!
