We are creating a mobile app strictly for gun enthusiasts; for iPhone/iPad/Android
NOT A KIDDIE GAME, NO EXTRA PURCHASES. A one stop reference for anything guns.
- 1,000 + guns, organized by "type" & alphabetically
- Photos & full specs
- "Request" a gun tab (for users to recommend an add)
- Concealed carry reciprocity chart, by state
- 100's of instantly visible gun owner's manuals which will be in .pdf format (mobile friendly)
- Ballistic Calculator
- iFire cam (users can send us their gun collection pics, for the "gallery" tab"
- & a few more features
WE ARE TRYING TO INCORPORATE EVERYTHING WE HAVE FOUND "sold separately", into ONE app.
ANY SUGGESTIONS or COMMENTS ARE VERY WELCOME!!
THANK YOU!!

What's an "app"? I have never, and do not expect I will ever, need an app for this. I am hoping I never own a "smart" phone, but I suspect I am doomed at some point. Doesn't mean I have to use it for this.

I see problems with copyright laws on the manuals and other materials, keeping info up to date (the reciprocity stuff alone changes almost daily, and I would never trust an app to keep me out of jail), a thousand plus guns is a tiny, tiny fraction of what is out there (there are something like 1500 AR-15-style rifles alone).

Good luck.

Good point of the reciprocity. Will just have to update constantly. Believe it or not there is a state to state carry app that is SELLING for I believe $4.99 & had MANY MANY users.
I will definitely look into the copyrights of the owner's manuals, but I would suspect most would be okay. Free advertising for them, in a sense.

It seems to me that your app would be far more useful at launch if you created an app that is an aggregator, rather than creating your own content. Lots of websites out there that have the stuff you want to cover, yet few of them have their own apps. If you get their cooperation, you also get access to their current users. Just sayin... I don't know much about writing apps, but I do have plenty of experience in startup businesses.

I refuse to pay for apps, if they aren't free, I don't need them.

Sorry.

Luvs2Play- Do you have iPhone or Android? If you have iPhone, shoot me an email quick:
[email protected]
I have a three year old android, it should not be called a smart phone because it can't even make a simple phone call most of the time because the service here is so bad that it just sits in my pocket and dings in and out of service until the battery goes dead in a couple hours.
