Got a great idea for an iPhone app? Except, you don't know how to write a line of code yourself? Don't sweat it. If this startup called RadicalFlow achieves its mission you could be creating an app without any knowledge in coding. The company says it needs $75,000 to make its visial real for everyone and is taking it to Kickstarter to raise funding. With donations open until May 26, RadicalFlow had raised about $3,500 at time of writing.
RadicalFlow is a web-based HTML5 tool. “Think of it like opening Photoshop or Powerpoint with a blank slate ready for your creative input,” reads a portion of the company’s Kickstarter pitch. You design the interface, add buttons and create interaction, while RadicalFlow handles the backend heavy lifting. Then, once you’ve built your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch app, the company touts an added bonus.
The company says it needs funding for a development and design team, server costs, legal fees and support a marketing and promotional push.
