Kickfolio-LogoMelbourne-based statup, Kickfolio, allows you to create a kickass portfolio for your app in just less than 30 seconds. It grabs screenshots, reviews, and information about your app straight from iTunes, and displays it beautifully for visitors to your online portfolio. On top of which, it allows users to interact with the app before downloading it, so users will be able to make a more educated decision even before putting in the bucks. The AngelCube incubatee is catered to app developers. And more recently, it has announced that you can also embed Kickfolio demos and screenshots as an iframe on any webpage around the web, working pretty similar to a YouTube video. This makes it really convenient especially when users and investors wish to find out more, as all these can be done in one single webpage. IMG_5945Kickfolio co-founders entered the AngelCube program without an idea, but was selected based on the strength of their experience and the promise that they would build something really awesome. The idea of building Kickfolio struck Ed Dowling (pictured right, the dude on the left), co-founder, on the train to work one day. Chris Nolet (pictured right, the dude on the right), co-founder tells us:
We went through dozens of ideas when we arrived - from hardware products to ideas for iPad apps. At the end of a pretty exciting and tumultuous week of brainstorming, Ed was on the train on the way in, and wrote down [five] 'last ditch' ideas to try and find something that we would truly love to work on and that would solve a real-world pain point. He started focusing more on problems that we had personally - and one of those was keeping our app portfolios up to date. He came up with the idea to automate app portfolios and integrate live, interactive demos. He pitched it to me, I loved it, and we ran with it!The app was developed over a period of 11 weeks by both Ed and Chris, and they humbly contribute their achievements thus far to having “committed ourselves to building something cool and we stuck at it”. Kickfolio was also recently on Hacker News, and has received feedback which aids in its further development. So if you're an app developer and keen to find out how Kickfolio would work for your business, you can give it a try here Alternatively, you might also check out Limelight, a similar service which we featured last year.
