Tour My App Supports in50Hrs
Today Tour My App is extremely happy to announce full support for the in50Hrs giveaway. A bit of history here, What you see as Tour My App today started off as a bare minimum product developed in 19 hours time at in50Hrs organized by The Startup Centre last December.
Siddhi and I were invited as Mentors for in50Hrs, to help aspiring tech-entrepreneurs, build their first prototype. As the name suggests it was a weekend long event and people were expected to code through the 50 hours. Around the end of Saturday we had together realized that the teams were well on their way and we were not required any longer. The event still had around 20 hours, so we decided to write an app that would end up solving a problem we had been having for a while. TourMyApp was born, I ended up writing the first prototype in 15 hours and tuned it up in the next 4 hours. We weren’t even sure whether we wanted to demo it at the end of the event. But we went ahead all the same and we were blown over by the positive reviews it got. Then is when we realized that, what TourMyApp solves is not a problem we alone faced but was a common problem many web apps faced, it was solution for which people were ready to pay for. Siddhi has a much more elaborate post on what then transpired.
Today as The Startup Centre started the in50Hrs giveaway, we realized that there could be no better way to acknowledge the role of in50Hrs, than by giving away Professional Editions of TourMyApp for a period of 6 months to the winning contestants. The program is going to run for a period of 50 weeks and there will be a winner selected at the end of every week, if you are a startup and are looking to build your toolset then do check it out, the giveaway includes an amazing collection of tools apart from TourMyApp.
We are a great fan of startups, this is small thing that we thought we could do for the startups. May the startups win!
