Knicket Develops Separate App for Mobile Games Discovery

Dear Companists,

We have evaluated the survey in which you kindly participated and drawn our conclusions from its results. Thanks very much for participating in this type of crowdsourcing! Moreover, we have recently introduced a new source of monetization by means of the "Daily Game Videos" app, which we might present to you as early as during the "Lange Nacht der Startups" (Night of the Start-ups) in Berlin.

 

Survey Results

Roughly 50 Companists provided us with their wishes and suggestions concerning the product and user interface (UI) of KNICKET through our recent survey (German only). Most participants told us that social features in app development were less important to them, so we have removed such features from our list. An important aspect of the suggestions and tips was the simplification of the filter. Thus, there will be several presets to sort and filter apps in a faster way:

  • "Free and Cool": free apps with a rating of more than 4 stars.
  • "Great and Paid": paid apps with a rating of more than 4 stars.
  • "Just for Kids": only shows results from the "education" category suitable for children 4 years and older.

The "apps like" algorithm was also important to many participants, but we will not be able to improve this algorithm until later.

 

Screenshots of the New Mobile User Interface

 

First, we are focusing on the mobile interface. We have finished work on the design and are now working on the code. The web app will be revised, and its final version will be used for native apps (iOS/Android), which will be submitted to the stores in a few weeks. We have thus standardized the development of the apps and ensured that it will be very cost-efficient, which has been a great challenge because of the numerous devices and screen sizes.

 

New Source of Monetization: Daily Game Videos

 

Screenshots of the "Daily Game Videos" App

 

While working on our mobile UI, we came up with the idea of a little app that helps users find the latest games by means of game videos: "Daily Game Videos." A stream displays videos of the latest games. It is important to us that this stream only shows good games, so all of them have more than 75 ratings and an average rating of more than 4 stars. Users who like what they see can download the game from the app store with one click. This is a totally new and entertaining way of discovering games! The app was designed and programmed within only a few days, and it is based on the Knicket database.

 

Knicket at the Lange Nacht der Startups (Night of the Start-ups)

With a bit of luck, the app will already be ready at the time of the Berlin Start-up Night, during which we are going to have our own stand at the Berlin headquarters of Deutsche Telekom. More than 100 start-ups are going to present their ideas at this event. Feel free to join us for a little snack there and discover the best apps and games for your smartphone using KNICKET.

Best regards,

The Knicket team

Note

Investments in crowdfunding projects offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, these investments are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by splitting their investment amount between crowdfunding campaigns rather than investing all of it in one crowdfunding campaign. Professional investors often follow this strategy because it causes the risk to be distributed among several investments. In this way, successful investments can balance other less successful investments.

The shares of the Companists are subordinated profit-participating loans (partiarische Nachrangdarlehen). Such loans are shares in a business with similar characteristics as equity. If the company becomes insolvent or is liquidated, the claims of the Companists – just like those of all other shareholders of the company – will be satisfied from the assets in the insolvency or the assets in liquidation only after the claims of all other external creditors have been satisfied. Thus, Companists are treated like any other shareholder of the company during insolvency or liquidation proceedings.

The company information published on the Companisto website is provided solely by the companies. The projections made by the companies do not guarantee successful development of the company in the future. Consequently, crowdfunding investments are suitable only for those investors who can cope with the risk of a total loss of the capital invested. Investors make their own independent investment decisions and bear all risks themselves.

The investments are provided and issued by the individual companies. Companisto is neither the provider nor the issuer of the investments, but solely the internet service platform.
