AppTag 20% Funded in 48 Hours!

Wow! That was fast, AppTag is now 20% funded in a touch over 48 hours. It took jaja 14 days to get to the same stage. From the feedback I am getting there are a lot of imaginative people out there wanting to write some amazing apps! There are even more who want a quality toy with great gameplay for their kids and themselves. :-)

Here’s a chart from Kickstarter


AppTag on Mashable

Got some love from mashable this morning.

In fact it was a pretty glowing critigue of our toy vs the Hasbro product!

Its nice for a seasoned reporter to take a closer look at our toy and compare it favorably to a similar attempt from a huge toy company!

60% Funding for jaja

A few blogs have run some stories about jaja now and I’m getting a few interview requests. This has helped push us to 60% funding from 30% funding in just a few days!

I have finished building some of the prototypes with electronics so will demo that as soon as I get an app working in the next day or so. Thanks to our backers it looks like we’ll reach our goal.
