Friends of TMR: NerdOut App 2.0 Kickstarter

Author: No Comments Share:

The Marvel Report believes fan connection is of the utmost importance. Most of us here at TMR became friends by connecting at events like San Diego Comic-Con, WonderCon, and other events. One great way to keep track of nerdy events is through the app NerdOut. Our friend Michelle has built the app from the ground up and is raising funds to expand the app in 2.0. Check out all the info below.

NerdOut App 2.0 Kickstarter

We’re Making a Brand New Nerd Out App! What is Nerd Out? It’s a community of nerds! It’s all about sharing and attending events with nerds like you! By using a calendar app where you can list and discover events and locations! It provides a safe place for adults & kids alike to explore in their local areas. Connect with friends, discover your local comic shop, and even submit your own events (we are user supported on submissions currently). Events are updated 5 days a week. Nerd Out has been on the market since early August 2015. The current version of Nerd Out is available for download on Apple and Android devices.

What’s the Next Generation?

The current version of the app is built on a template. In order to bring you the best app we can, we

have to build a new app from scratch. This Next generation of Nerd Out will give users even more of

what they already love!

A) Improved Geolocation

Tired of having to tell the app where you’re located? The next generation the app will be able to

pinpoint your location off the bat along with the ability to look up other locations.

B) More Locations

We know 35 locations is just NOT enough and we want to add even more! Currently, we have to

manually enter in (copy & paste) events which is time-consuming and tedious. With the next

generation, we’ll be able to add events much more efficiently. We’ll also be adding more businesses

for you to discover!

Once launched we’ll focus on filling out the United States, and the United Kingdom. Followed by

Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. From there we plan to open to other countries.

Current locations on Nerd Out can be found at http://www.nerdoutapp.com

C) Filters

We heard our users and with the new update you will be able to search events by price, age, and

content (cosplay, gaming, conventions, comics, etc). Looking for something to bring the kids to? A

cosplay meetup? How about a date? Or just your local convention? The Next Generation will allow

you filter searches with more detail!!!

D) Making Friends

The current version of the app has a friending option but we are making changes that make this

even easier. Finding and adding friends in the next generation will be faster and more user-friendly.

E) Messaging

Want to talk to your friends? Chat about your plans for a convention? Or about the new Star Wars?

You will now be able to! We’ll also have stickers available for you to send to your friends! They will

all be nerd inspired!

F) Social Wall

I know many of you already love our Wall. However, we will be improving it with the ability to

use hashtags and tag other users!

Challenges

As the current app is built on a template, there are some limitations with it that slow down

productivity. Such as there is no way to automatically make an event recurring, we have to manual

input events that happen every Tuesday for instance (that’s 52 times a year for a single recurring

event, of which we have many). Michelle has been bootstrapping to bring you this amazing product.

Our Goal

This passion project has grown so much that we now need help from the nerd community to move

forward. By supporting this project you’ll be receiving an event calendar, social media platform, and

a place to call your nerdy home!

The money raised will be used to hire a Zach Van Ness of Breue as our developer. As a nerd

himself, he’s a perfect fit for our app! Zach has created a number of apps, some of his creations

have been acquired by companies such as Twitter. A small portion will be used to purchase the t-
shirts, phone cases, and stickers.
