Boombotix App Passes $10k Mark on Kickstarter

It’s been just one week into our campaign and we are stoked to see that we’re more than two thirds into our goal. We got picked up by TechCrunch and MacRumors, which certainly helped get some early momentum. Thanks to Wade Roush at XConomy for working with me on doing an interview.  We’re also really stoked to see our loyal fans taking care of the Holiday shopping with the Boombots through the campaign.

Some people were a little bit confused by Chris and I getting our groove on from the mountain in our previous app demo so we put together this piece that more clearly demonstrates using this app with two devices and Bluetooth speakers.

On the app development, Chinmay is working on making the whole Soundcloud library browsable within the app. Right now you can link your Soundcloud account and pull off your own playlists, but we’d like to allow users to search the full Soundcloud ecosystem within the app. This would wrap up our Soundcloud integration and we can then move to Spotify.  We’ve had tons of inquiries on our Android development, but we really just want to make sure we can nail the iOS version of SYNC first.

There is still a pretty long grind to get this project past the funding milestone, but we’re confident we can make it happen. We added a pretty cool backer rewards including prototypes of the new lunchbox sized Thumper Mini PA. We’re hoping we can pick up a couple more press wins to drive some more traffic to the campaign. Nick is working on a short format trailer style piece to get out to some of the press that was interested. Gaining the attention of the press has always been vital to the success of these crowdfunding campaigns. Word of advice would be to really make sure you have phenomenal content to send your press outlets. You only get one shot.
