This is ‘Door Hanger’ app and basically is a service that we are providing to be availed by app users for free in its basic version.
— This version has already been submitted on app store and is approved.
— Our app users are ‘pool service company’ owners or individual freelancers, whoare working in same industry.
— They do regular service of their customer’s swimming pools.When they complete, they leave a notification about ‘service done’ with notes via email, via this app.
— This is the base functionality of our ’Door Hanger’ app.
In App Purchase
If the ‘pool service provider’ company owner/ individual wants to notify their customers via a SMS/ Text, they can do it via our Door Hanger app.But in this case we ask them to pay for SMS/Text facility. Because this app is integrated with a standard ‘SMS gateway’ on a payment basis.
So, we ask customer (pool service provider companies/ individual) to pay us inside the app.
— This version of app, we are submitting now.
— We have created 2 paid plans for same in ‘upgrade’ feature, inside the app.One is $16.99 and another is $24.99 which gives facility of 100 and 200 SMS to send as Door Hanger notification.
— This is basically for those people who don’t have email IDs or are comfortable with getting a text notification on their phone numbers (basically less technologically updated or/ and old age people)
— In beginning we were taking payments from Door Hanger’s web interface. We saw big potential in providing same facility but on the go and can’t miss the opportunity in of user using via mobile devices.
Our app (and web) allows user to pay at 3 places.
- While register for a fresh paid account, user can select a plan and pay.
- User can register with free account and use the Door Hanger’s email only service.
But anytime in future when he thinks ‘Text Notification’ is profitable for his business model, he can upgrade his account, again by choosing anyone from given plans. And as mentioned above, he can also see history.
- In the middle of month somehow, if his ‘Text’ quote exhausts, he can top up his SMS account.
— App is linked to Stripe payment gateway and a SMS gateway. These accounts has been authorized by these gateways…individually on proper legal documentation and paperwork. We are paying all taxes as per their regulations.
— Apart from SMS/ Text facility, we also save their ‘Door Hanger’ notification history in their accounts respectively.
Our plan is to add more features and enhance this application niche to US swimming pool industry. But we are on beginning level.
Our app is asking for 3 permissions to access from the mobile device
1. Mic: while creating Door Hanger, app allowing user to speak and add any extra notes about pool service. This converts to text, whatever is being said in the ‘notes’ section while creating Door Hanger.
- Camera: we are taking pictures of the pool after cleaning/ service done, so app uses device camera to click the image of pool. And also with the service guy that proves that that it was done by him.
- Gallery: if the service guy has to point some particular area in pool, then he marks it via any image editor app and attach it from gallery while creating Door Hanger viz we are taking image gallery access of device.
