SellanApp – Do you have a great App Idea, but don’t want to hire or become a developer

Aren’t we all fascinated and intrigued by new apps that keep hitting the App Store every now and then? Most of them work wonders for us while others fail to make an impression. At the end of the day it all boils down to the Idea of making an App. Wouldn’t it be a great deal if your app idea is featured on the App store? If you have a good idea then, SellanApp, a crowd funding platform for iOS apps, will help you turn your App idea into an App store reality.

A one of a kind App, which through crowd funding matches App ideas with real developers. SellanApp connects innovative App ideas with developers worldwide whereby the app loving community of potential users fund the development. The pledgers, pledge funds on the App idea that interests them the most in order to get them developed by the developer. Rewards are given by the producer to the pledger which is a share in the revenue the App will generate or both. During the funding period the total amount pledged grows. The developers, can then select the App ideas which they want to develop against the total amount pledged.

SellanApp will then submit and maintain the developed App in the App Store and the revenue earned will be directed to the producers and pledgers (Pro-rata their pledge). The pledgers are then charged based on an ‘All or Nothing funding’ only after the App idea is selected by the developer. With the help of an advanced and free iPad App offered by SellanApp, you can easily create playable mockups which can further be uploaded and shared on the web platform.

Design and edit your App, make some last touches (Don’t forget to think out of the box!) and begin crowd funding. Showcase your app, enthuse and excite the people by creating word of mouth about the idea behind your App, thereby raising money to attract international developers to develop your app with the money pledged at that point of time.

Founded by Aernoud Dekker, SellanApp aims at simplifying the whole experience by investing in getting the platform stable and supporting other platforms like Android, Blackberry and Windows mobile.

Pitch in your App ideas without having to worry about funds, resources or market access because SellanApp will help you transform just a simple idea into an effective yet efficient mobile App.

Late Labs – Trading Code for Equity


Hardcore coders or hackers are an enthusiastic lot; symbolizing effervescing energy. But having the talent does not confirm ‘incoming- dinero’. Always on the look- out for more challenges, projects and enterprises, they fail to connect with the much needed resources.

Late Labs

Apart from those looking for work, there are people who are looking out for ‘people’ to do their work called Hustlers.  Late Labs brings these hustlers and hackers together creating an amazing web of ideas and resources, giving you codes and apps imbibed with creativity and zapping efficiency.

Late Labs is a crowd sourced community of cool coders. The online platform is a launch pad for developers to apply their time in a collaborative way and in return earn equity. Equity is the new cash!  It takes a long time to get any returns, if any at all, but when it does, it reaps big rewards. Late Labs is pretty much a summation of resource –oriented venture, which provides technical documentation, project management, infrastructure, design, distribution and dinero to make projects a success.

Equity for all the involved parties is calculated based on an “equity fairness calculator” (being worked on currently). As a developer you can connect using your GitHub account or by sending your resume and portfolio through mail. You need to apply for each project individually. The Late Labs team selects you, a budding developer, after reviewing your code. Once selected, you will have access to full project details and including the contract (sounds exciting!) with details of your equity as predetermined by the project lead. Equity will be awarded to the developer after the code is tested and released to the public in beta form. It thrives as much on simplicity as on its challenging aptitude.

Brainchild of co-founders, Justin Elof Johnson and Nathan Ross, the startup has got an enthusiast response with 3.5K people signing up within a month of launch. Late Labs will be running the process, and not the idea originator. But it also has an option for submission of an idea. The concept is similar to Ahhha but unlike them Late Labs only crowdsources coders and not the entire product development process.

Are you a hacker and hope for being a part of the next big thing? Do your efforts aim at trending ideas and do you dream of working with the brilliant minds of Silicon Valley? Here’s your chance.
