We, as Human beings can be quite forgetful at times. This can be problematic sometimes, especially if you are a movie buff. That plan of watching a movie on the first day of its release would go up in smoke if you are not timely reminded of its show time. Wondering who would be the one to alert you? Or rather what? Well, AlertFilm is a perfect app for those who want to be constantly updated about the availability of movies as well as TV shows. It reduces the hassle of going through multiple sources to get information about the latest movies and TV shows that would release in mediums such as Netflix and Amazon Prime.
In the AlertFilm app, you can find, discover and share the shows and movies you love. You can set alert for the movies and receive notification whenever they become available. All your favourite movies and TV shows can be classified under the watchlist so that when they get released, you will be 2 taps away from watching it. The content available is worldwide that is curated and made suitable to different platforms the users have access to.
Being an avid movie and TV show lover, Benjamin, one of the founders of the app tells that they spent too much time finding out movies to watch, and when they found what to watch, they didn’t know where to watch it. Hence, to counter this situation, they decided to come up with the app which would give all the details a movie and a TV show lover would want.
The app faces a stiff competition from TVShow Time that helps users create TV show calendar by selecting their favorite shows. But the AlertFilm app scores over them by integrating the movie schedules along with the TV shows. It combines every Video on Demand (VOD) service that you have access to in just one app, making it more versatile than the competitor.
One of the major hurdles the app faced was to establish itself in Ignite startup accelerator program in London, thereby helping them achieve a better understanding of how the market functions. The app now plans on becoming the world’s leading streaming entertainment guide by providing its services to every country. They are looking for funds so that they can plan on establishing commercial partnerships and provide exclusive offers and content to magazines, sell tickets for the movies, and provide subscriptions to new services.
The app looks to target avid movie and TV show lovers and can be found in the App Store.

“Poetry can be dangerous, especially beautiful poetry, because it gives the illusion of having had the experience without actually going through it.” ― Rumi
Poetry is one of the best forms to express meaning and heart felt emotions through words, words that could touch the deepest of hearts, souls and minds. People always write poems but most keep it to themselves while few manage to share it with the world. With the help of Poetree, one can now compete against many others poetry lovers by writing poems that can be appreciated by many others across the world.
Nate Mega, Founder & CEO of Karma App Studio Inc. is the brainchild behind the inception of Poetree and according to him Poetree is an innovative, fun and creative social poetry competition app. Poetree is also the first and only app of its kind. Users can write your best, most inspired poem in 500 characters or less and share your Poetree on all major social media networks via the multi-share button. Users can also submit your Poetree to the Global Community for review. Read and rate some of your fellow Poetree users’ poems; rate them on a scale of 1-5 hearts. Climb the global leaderboard! The more hears you receive, the higher you climb. Poetree started in the early days of September 2016 and is based in the United States of America.
Nate wanted to provide a platform for all his fellow poetry lovers where he felt people could express their emotions through words in the form of poetry. Nate wanted to go a step further to makes this app a really unique one and thus came up with the idea of a competitive based platform where users would compete amongst others to see who’s poems were appreciated the most. The idea of Poetree came about when Nate was expressing his emotions to his girlfriend through words in the form of poetry. His girlfriend appreciated and loved each one of the poem and kept them all for safekeeping and eventually this lead to them getting engaged. This is what made Nate believe that poems could mean a lot and it would be great if he could get others to contribute to the art of poetry.
Deep down, Nate believes everyone is a poet at heart. Poetree does not have any competitors so far and is the first and only social poetry competition app. Poetree is self-funded as they are making enough money on their own. Poetree is available on both iOS and android platforms for a $2.99 flat-rate download and $0.99 for a limited time for *launch sale*. Nate’s only wish is to get millions of people get influenced by words and get them to love the ancient art of poetry.

Are you having a speaker that looks out of place on your decorated furniture or on your customized walls? Have you ever thought of how that could be magically transformed so that it would complement your favourite furniture? Imagine having to get your own customizable speakers with colours and designs of your taste. This option is provided by Nepsu, a Canada-based startup company.
Nepsu brings to the table a fully customizable speaker in the shape of a triangle, aptly named as ‘The Nepsu Triangle’. These triangular speakers can be made according to the user’s liking and can easily blend into any decor. They have interchangeable parts made of high-quality sustainable materials that are available in a variety of colours. This would further aid the users to completely express their individuality and creativity in bringing out the perfect looking speakers. To change its appearance easily, each colorful aluminium plate and acoustic tissue are magnetized. Also, the power cable is available in different colors for an easier integration. It is also versatile because it can be placed on a table, hung on a wall or even be inserted in a room’s often empty and unused corner.
While successful, they face major competition from companies like Bose and Sonos that provide smart speakers and superior sound clarity. What sets Nepsu apart from these companies is that along with the features provided by these companies, it also provides complete customization of their product designs for the users.
The Triangle features the latest Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, DLNA and aptX technology, and also has a standard 3.5mm audio jack for Aux input. The audio quality has been optimized with the help of audio experts and is made of the best components that would provide long-term clear and pleasant listening experience without causing ear fatigue.
In the Indiegogo campaign, the company plans on displaying their accessories and provide complementary products to provide a better experience for Triangle’s users and plan on releasing a second speaker once The Triangle becomes popular. They also plan on developing and releasing other products such as smart light bulbs and home sensors that would monitor the environment.
The company looks to attract customers who are more into house decor along with the ones who are music buffs.

Technology is ever advancing in today’s world and there does not seem to be an end to it. Virtual Reality is slowly taking over the lives of many people, it is available in so many different sectors and one can now eve use a virtual reality device in their homes. GoInStore is a technology product that deals with Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, Drone Technology and also 360 imaging and it is as unique as it could possibly be. GoInStore was founded by André Hordagoda and Aman Khurana, the business was started in July 2014 and the product however was launched in August 2015.
According to André Hordagoda and Aman Khurana, GoInStore is an award-winning pioneer of a first-person, “in-store” shopping experience for online customers. Visitors to retail websites can now video-call the store via a one-way live video/two-way live audio stream and chat with a knowledgeable in-store salesperson, who are equipped with smart glasses and able to guide the customer in “first person” viewpoint through the store and explore products. GoInStore helps retailers to maximise sales conversions, brand engagement and customer service.
The main idea behind this product was to introduce a real human being with real product knowledge into the online channel to really engage with website customers. Upon realising the limitations of Google Glass, GoInStore chose to partner with Epson, the world’s largest supplier of printers and imaging products, which had recently developed a less hyped but far more effective set of headwear/glasses as part of a diversification drive to combat falling demand for devices that print receipts. GoInStore also has an unique algorithm which helps the buyer to find the product that they are looking for and also let tell them if the store has the product in stock or not and if the product is not in stock then the GoInStore option disappears.
André Hordagoda and Aman Khurana tell us that their USP is in utilising the physical store infrastructure that their clients have as well as their already well-trained sales people. GoInStore on the outset has charged every single customer or client which is found to be rather unusual when it comes to a disruptive start-up. GoInStore is funded and they work on a SaaS-based model which is a one-off set-up fee combined with a fixed monthly fee, based on the number of users the client has. Users here refer to the amount of staff that can be logged in and available to receive a GoInStore call at any one time.

With the gradual rise in health conscious individuals, the fitness market is currently seeing a rise in the number of gadget makers both corporations and independent trying their bit to capture a significant portion of the market.
California based Opter, run by Chalisa Prarasri, who was previously a researcher in the W. M. Keck Center for Neurophysics and the Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research.
Opter’s current offering ‘Pose’ is a unisex designer necklace that helps you with your posture. It’s also an activity tracker, UV sensor, and light sensor. Opter actually started with drones and produced pivots until they transitioned into the production of the ‘pose’ product.
‘Pose’ is unique because it notifies you of the correct posture helpful when you have back pain, detects harmful UV rays. Because of its success, Lumo Lift is its main competitor in the design of the product to improve posture. Opter Pose is completely waterproof; it is smaller than a military RFID-tag and almost as thin as an iPhone 6S. Part of the necklace is made from real walnut wood to reduce plastic use.
After facing many challenges in design and production, they’ve made the initial version of the product that is ready for production. CEO Chalisa Prarasri says, “We had intended to start with Opter Sleep, the sleep tracker, because it is the Opter Pose but bigger. So we launched it on Kickstarter. Then we realized that people are much more interested in the Opter Pose and had to cancel our campaign so as not to waste time working on a product that wasn’t our most popular”.
Opter Pose will be launched in late 2016 in California.
Once they’ve gauged Opter poses’ success they can focus on building Opter sleep or sip as their next projects on the agenda. They are looking to build an ecosystem of trackers to get people to live a healthy lifestyle. There are many ways these products can make people healthier and happier.
They are planning to commercially produce this product, once they are funded by backers, as they need support to expand sales and production.
Opter Pose is geared towards older millennials, especially those with office jobs or sitting jobs, where exercise is either at a premium or is a continuing cycle of production.

With the fast-evolving digital world, we get to see new technological innovations each day. Marketing – digital marketing in particular – plays a crucial role in spreading awareness about your products. Public Relations is a rapidly developing facet of the marketing mix. Though it hasn’t been very popular compared to other marketing techniques, but it has started gaining immense popularity in recent times.
Due to its unconventional nature, marketing your consumer electronics through public relations holds great promises within. The process includes spreading awareness about your ideas or products, among the potential customer base, through a third-party user. Some of these third party promoters are;
News and Papers: News and papers provide us with great opportunities to spread words about our products. It is a common sight on TV where two newscasters hold a product and discuss its benefits. Moreover, newsrooms also invite spokespersons to further highlight the details about the product, to the viewers.
Trendsetters: Seeking help from trendsetters is one of the many PR ways, using which you can promote your consumer electronics. You can ask a celebrity to use your products. You will be able to find many customers from his followers. Instagram, Pinterest, and Tumblr are few of the many social media sites where your products can be promoted.
Industry Analysts: You can hire an industry analyst as well to promote your products through public relations. For instance, Youtube review videos are very common these days. There are multiple Youtube channels which discuss pros and cons of new innovations and products.
Advantages of Public Relations in Marketing Consumer Electronics
It offers a lot of benefits when you spread awareness about your products through public relations.
Since it doesn’t include regular marketing stunts, it helps you build credibility among your customers. You’re are likely to develop a large, loyal customer base which will stick with your products for longer periods of time.
Unlike ordinary marketing, you don’t need to input a lot of resources when you promote consumer electronics using public relations. You’re are targeting a specific customer base with the help of third-party users.
Though it is not absolutely free, it is not very expensive either. It is very affordable compared to other conventional marketing techniques. If you’re a small or medium sized enterprise, with limited resources, then you should latch on the PR avenues for your product marketing.
More Chances of finding Business Partners and Funding
When you promote your products through PR, your business appears to be a developed one, thus gathering interest from many big investors and enterprises, in the market. With the right tools, you can expand your consumer electronics market to a great extent.
There is no denying the fact that consumer electronics PR is precise, reliable, and affordable but it is not for free, as considered by many. Moreover, it is not a very fast way of promoting business compared to other sorts of marketing techniques. It demands a lot of time and patience to produce results.

If you are looking to rescue your long-lost analog photos in your shoebox or if you just want to free up space in that cluttered attic, you should go into the app store and pick up Unfade app into your app collection!
Christoph Wagner built his app Unfade from the bottom up. Unfade, a German company which was launched on May 24th, 2016, specializes in digitizing old photos and improving their overall visual quality. The idea of this start-up originated from Wagner’s deep expertise in computer vision.
This allowed Wagner to create the first computer vision space app, Scanbot, which currently has over 4 million downloads worldwide. As Wagner transitioned into founding his own app, he encountered many unique challenges.
One of the biggest hurdles was that the App Store was not designed for “fix early and often” development, which refers to the inability of the App Store to properly displays fixes immediately; it, on average, took a day for fixes to take effect.
However, despite these early problems, the app is easy to use, and it is well priced compared to other apps. Interestingly, the app, which is currently funded, integrates the written code in Swift, except for code in the edge detection, which is integrated in Objective C to work with OpenCV.
While very successful, Unfade faces competition from Photomyne, another app that improves the quality of old analog photos. As user continue to update their mobile devices and computers, the demand of applications to be able to update old analog photos on older devices, 2000’s or older, will continue to grow. As Unfade grows, there will be more users and more startups will start to sprout.
This all comes from the vision of Christoph Wagner, who realized the dream and made it reality. The continuing vision and growth for Unfade is rapid iteration based on user feedback and adding additional functionality. In addition, there are future plans for a paid app, even though there might be pushback with users not wanting to pay money, but the benefits of the Unfade App will push consumers to invest money into the app.
Unfade is a launching pad into future endeavors and you should get in hands on it.

Friends gather. Conversations flow. The food is eaten. Someone squeals “selfie!” All of you gather.

A friend just pinged you the address to an event and you hasten to check Google for directions. Several furious seconds (you keep pressing the text but it simply refuses to copy) and choppy screenshots later you manage to get the address onto Google maps and locate your directions. You realize you have to Uber you way there and the same cut-copy- paste ordeal follows.
Here’s how to avoid that.
Cubeit’s interface is built for all your apps, not just one. Cubeit intelligently learns what you would like to do with your data and shows only what you need. Save a location from Maps and you get handy buttons to navigate and call an Uber; a link from Product hunt shows the number of upvotes along with an install button. Cubeit knows what you want to do with the content and makes it actionable.
Cubeit, which went live in March 2016, is a Bangalore based startup founded by Sarthak Jain, Prathamesh Juvatkar and Nithin Gadiparthi. Cubeit was envisioned from the exasperation of switching through multiple apps to figure out where all the information was and the problem of sharing links with friends in chat and getting lost.
Cubeit’s search base spans multiple apps and throws up results based on context; ergo, you find exactly what you want, when you want it. Cubeit supports sharing all types of content – videos, files, links, images and contacts making it hassle free to talk to your friends about the things you love. Cubeit’s unique interface is its USP. Currently, the one place where you can share any type of content is chat, but unfortunately, to understand the content of the link it requires you to copy the link and switch between multiple apps: an avoidable annoyance. But, when you share a link in Cubeit, the app intelligently understands the most important information from the link and shows only what’s appropriate.
For example, if you share a hotel review from TripAdvisor, the text link will be converted into a card which shows you the ratings of the hotel up front, along with buttons to call the hotel. Content is made actionable within Cubeit with just a tap.
As of now, Cubeit’s competitors are Dropbox (file saving and sharing), Evernote (save, organize, search everything important to you), Pocket (save web links and read it later) and Slack (communicate in an organized manner) But what distinguishes Cubeit is its ability to search through multiple apps in one place and add it to your content without the need to switch multiple apps. Cubeit has essentially built its own search engine! Cubeit is also testing out a news feed feature aggregates content from apps you like and presents it in one place. Their idea is to learn from the users’ behavior and present content tailored to their interests.
Cubeit has been successful in their efforts to replicate the folder paradigm from the desktop on your mobile phone; a feat that no one has been able to accomplish between different operating systems. This makes transfer of files and data management effortless.
Cubeit helps get the best and seamless use of your smart phone.
