picture the normal GPS app you see on the street with your iPhone, so why not have an app that has the entire layout and map of walmart, that allows you to type in certain products and tells you where to go. And yes I understand part of how walmart makes money is that they don't want you to know where things are and see random deals, but you could still do the random deals easily as people could see them on the map of walmart. Aisles on the map indicating deals with little notifications on them, saying sale sale sale!
Austin Calvertpostedkickstarter is a wonderful app, and has figured out the crowd funding industry best. But while looking around its categories, I found really only products rather than projects to back.
Therefore I came up with something called MOV
short for movement, I want to create an app that functions like Kickstarter that is specifically designed for social movements across the world.
A way that this could be done, in an instance.
- A group comes along and wants the world to know about water shortages in some country, therefore this group posts a video and can look for backers with money, just like kickstarter. Where is the differentiation? The possibility of up vote and down voting, which signifies what people think what social change should be realized the most, once up voted. comparable to reddit.
this could possibly change many lives and help people realize many areas of hidden suppression. The up vote and down vote process is where social change can really happen.
I drove past a store touting "We Buy Gold" earlier today. I suddenly thought - why don't people do that for bitcoins? My buddy at work sold his bitcoins on MtGox recently and had some real trouble figuring out how to get his money out, since the MtGox connection to Dwolla has been taken down and it takes about 2 weeks to receive the money via traditional transfer to a bank account. There's a real problem with liquidity.
What if someone with a verified Mt Gox account would simply "cover" people for the 2 weeks it takes for the funds to transfer to their bank? Just like a payday loan/cash for gold - the problem is liquidity that is solved by someone that happens to have immediate capital and a little more patience.

Austin CalvertpostedLooking to create an MVP for an application that does organization and personalization of our entire web life.
The Idea gives three functions/features to the user (which are)
This application is trying to create an ultimate mobile web hub.
Rather me just blabbing on about it, I'll gladly show frameworks for the idea that is still in concept stage.
Hopefully you will be able to grasp it once you see the pictures, if not drop a comment with a question.
If you want to see much more of the framework message me, wish i could upload more photos!
There is a lot too it as you can probably tell by looking at the concept, so please feel free to comment or message me for interest or questions.
Austin CalvertpostedA website that has a community environment. give the website a two profile dimension, one of those being exclusive entrepreneur profiles, and then another type of user that represents a normal person, opposite of the entrepreneur profile. What the normal users could do is post problems and hashtag them across the website, and The exclusive entrepreneur community then can help the user and possibly create something with them. A dedicated site, where real world problems can be stated, and solutions can quickly follow with a great community.
J. Allen SoberanopostedApp: when you are running in a marathon, a way to allow all your friends to send you songs for your playlist as you run. Only the songs they own in their itunes and it only plays once.
J. Allen SoberanopostedAfter checking out http://www.fbomb.co that tracks where the Fbomb occurs on twitter by location. Create a site or app that allows you to track any hashtag you choose. Ex: being able to see where people are discussing #birdflu #flu etc that may give you a heads up of current trends by location so we could prepare or just analyze
Ben BarrethpostedHow about a site called PhotoBombr that allows you to easily cut people out of photographs and put in any "photobombed" background behind them? Similar to one of those meme creator / cheezburger sites that run entirely from ads.
