"Workspace" indiegogo project.

hey guys, were launching a crowdfunding project for an app called "Workspace". It's a 4 pane web browser designed for multitasking.

The animation is sloppy but it gets the point across. What are your opinions on it? the name, the concept, the potential of it.

thanks in advance,

James Barrington

Hi James,

Why Indiegogo and not kickstarter? Just personal curiosity really, that and I'm on kickstarter. I will have to make an account and back your project; it's something I would use.

so glad you asked

I was up to the last step on Kickstarter and it turned out I needed to be an American citizen. No way around it so I turned to Indiegogo. Hope you liked the video!

Wish I could do more sir but I will most likely be running a kickstarter campaign myself in the next few weeks.

The app icons could easily, and probably will, be depicted as "bookmarks" instead. Mosty leading to HTML5 web apps. I've considered the 10.4 guildlines and am confident it will be accepted into every App Store.

Apple definitely won't like it. At heart though it's an internet browser, and the apps are just HTML5 layouts for Notes, Weather etc. If it did get rejected we would still release the Mac and Windows 8 version.

Kinda weird asking for funding when you readily admit this.
