The app is available as a web app, iOS and Android App. You can sign up for beta here: www.moodpaste.com !
Let’s do some math
Last week we released Presdeck.at/tnw. It took us 30 minutes to discuss the concept. We’re not completely sure whether this is a stand-alone app, but based on a little research on real-time event coverage we suspect shared state is an interesting feature next to the push messaging and the real-time querying people are growing accustomed to.
The design took 8 hours. But in a normal situation you already have at least a company design so lets cut this in half.
Extending and integrating the conversation component took another 8 hours. Lets double this because an experienced Simulfy programmer did this part: 16 hours.
Finally we did the CSS in 4 hours.
The total development time to take this from zero to as far as you can experience yourself at http://pressdeck.at/tnw is 0.5 + 4 + 8 + 16 + 4 = 32.5 hours. That’s an average day with 4 guys in the office.
We are looking forward to the prototypes of other agencies and developers!
The Simulfy Team
We’re preparing to launch Simulfy 0.9 Public Beta at The Next Web 2012, which basically means the Sandbox is working well and documentation is ready. Starting this Friday you can find all the documentation you need at github.com/simulfy/simulfy-libs/wiki
We are looking forward to your feedback to see which last additions are required to finish 1.0.
And don’t forget to check pressdeck.at during The Next Web! A real-time shared state web application we developed especially for TheNextWeb and your conference if you like it…
After a year of development we’re ready for developers test-driving our platform!
We’ve just opened up our Sandbox, setup a Wiki on GitHub and released some example code to get started right away.
Apply for an application key now and become one of the first developers on Simulfy!
We had a blast at SXSW. Special thanks to Handelsroute.nl and NBSO for the excellent organization! And of course Fellows of Amsterdam for free drinks, pumping beats and more free drinks.
The comforting thing about the event was definitely the positive feedback we got from so many developers, product managers, marketing managers and UX designers. After a brief introduction most of them immediately began to sum up concrete possibilities for Simulfy for their apps, which was exactly what we hoped for.
We got a few questions about our different brand names. So lets explain this a little bit more. About 5 years ago we started Dutch Coast with the goal to create an all round digital agency that could do both bespoke projects and launch innovative services. We started the latter with Peers.me. Peers.me is a group collaboration tool we wanted to launch besides Google Wave. Well, we all know what happened to Google Wave so we had to downsize our ambitions with Peers,me. The service is however fully developed and supports a variety of groups world wide.
In our pursuit to introduce real-time collaborative features in Peers.me we build the prototype of the services that is now presented as Simulfy. We gradually had come to the conclusion that this is potentially such a generic and powerful service, that we decided to position this first as a stand-alone service before applying it in Peers.me.
For most people Real-time and Collaborative are quit abstract things. To explain the possibilities of Simulfy we knew we had to show something concrete. That’s why we build WetweetApp on top of Simulfy; yet another name for another service.
So Simulfy, Peers.me and WetweetApp are both services made by the fine people of Dutch Coast. We got a few other apps in the pipeline at Dutch Coast so don’t be surprised if you see us with walking around with a new t-shirt at SXSW2013.
By the fine people of Dutch Coast
Step by step we are putting stuff in place for developers to start exploring the possibilities of Simulfy. Yesterday we released the conversation library. It’s the library the people at Dutch Coast used for Wetweetapp. We are looking forward to other applications build with this library!
What do you think of our poster?
We’ve been selected to participate at the “Holland Pavilion” at South by Southwest this year. We’re very excited to share our ideas about “Now is better together” and we hope to meet you. We’re at the “Holland Pavilion”, stand no. 1215. Mail me, daniel[at]simulfy.com, to meet up.
See you in Austin!
Last week the guys from Dutch Coast launched the WeTweetApp Beta. It’s the first example of a service build on top of Simulfy. WeTweetApp allows you to work together simultaneously on a single tweet. You can co-edit the tweet in real-time and discuss your work in a sidebar. They modified our conversation client and use the Simulfy platform to service all the real-time collaborative interaction. The app is reviewed by a couple of blogs; and at this point a bunch of people in Spain and Portugal are pretty enthusiastic. We hope to see more like this in the upcoming months.
