Thanks to all your patience as we work to create the coolest open platform for cars! We can’t do it without your creativity and support.
Our SDK has finally gone live and can be viewed at http://sandbox.developer.moj.io.
Here’s an introduction to mojio Developer Center:
Developer Center is our online resource for app developers to build innovative web and mobile apps for just about any car through a well defined and supported interface.
The Developer Center has four elements:
A centralized and constantly updated reference for developing and testing your applications with the mojio API and monitoring tools.
Save time and effort by developing your applications using real recorded vehicle data and dynamically simulated events and track this in real time on a moving map display.
Sample Source Code
See sample code using the mojio API that allows developers to jumpstart their own connected-car application development.
Forums and Community Support
Ask questions, exchange tips, and promote new features with a growing community of developers in a forum monitored and supported directly by the mojio development team.
The Developer Center is available at:
This is a development environment that is sandboxed (an exact copy of our production environment): safe for developers to use for testing and training without having to deal with live users. Once your apps have been developed and tested here, they can be quickly and easily re-targeted to the mojio Production Environment where they are linked with actual user accounts.
With mojio, you can access all the real time vehicle data points you need to build the applications you are considering.
More goodies to come so stay tuned and start coding!
Congratulations Katie Cahnmann from Chicago IL! You’ve won an Early Bird Perk from moj.io.
Backers: Thank you all for participating in our survey and for your great feedback. We can’t wait to get moj.io into your hands!
Here we are! Just 48 hours left to wrapping up our first crowd funding project. It’s been a very exciting month, and with all your support and that of many new business partners, developers and drivers, the world’s first open platform for car apps is off to a huge start!
Let’s make a last, final push on this campaign before it’s finished. Share our www.Facebook.com/getmojio page with your friends, let them know there’s still time to pre-order moj.io on Indiegogo for a great price. Let them know we’ll be changing driving forever!
The 2013 Consumer Electronics Show…
…is just around the corner. Some of you may be attending CES. If so, we’d love to meet you! Write us firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how we can connect. Ideas are best shared in person, and this platform will be built on great ideas nurtured by great connections.
Win an Early Birds Perk
Thanks for filling out our survey! On Monday morning at 10am, someone is going to win an Early Birds Perk. It could still be you. Let us get to know you better, your tastes, ideas and preferences and you can win! Follow this link to our short survey.
We’ve seen a big push in support from the developer community this last week. To the developers out there, thank you! You are a key part of this new car community, and I believe we’re speaking for everyone when we say we can’t wait to see all the great new apps for cars that you’ll be creating with our SDK.
We also received lots of great feedback and interest on adding Bluetooth or possibly WiFi to the moj.io device. Now we’d like to hear how you would use either of these additions in your apps to enhance the experience for moj.io drivers. Share your ideas, ask our CTO technical questions and provide us with any last thoughts you have on this subject before we hit our design freeze on the device. You can email us here.
Contributors, thank you for your ongoing support! We’ve seen a big push this week, with new backers loving the two new FOUNDER’s PERK levels.
And we’re cooking up some really exciting use cases that go way beyond the 8 original apps you get with moj.io.
But what happens if we don’t reach our goal?
Some of you have contacted us about the status of our campaign. Not to worry, moj.io is equity financed and not meeting the $100k goal will not change delivery targets.
We see Indiegogo as an opportunity to begin pre-orders, discover what people want and build a community of drivers and developers. We are eager to reach 1000 drivers so we can get some meaningful dialogue going. While we’re only a quarter of the way there with drivers, we have received tremendous feedback and have been contacted by great partners throughout this campaign – most of which will become visible in the coming months, including dozens of developers already!
After we close this campaign, we’ll continue to sell pre-orders for moj.io on our www.moj.io website, but we won’t be able to offer the great deals on available Indiegogo so hurry!
Here’s a few exciting updates:
• Our SDK protocol for hackers and developers is almost finished!
• We’re heavily weighing the addition of either Bluetooth 4.0 or WiFi, and not just for internet hotspot capability in your car. So any car with moj.io installed would instantly recognize you by your phone and configure itself to your apps and preferences. Email us and let us know if you like this feature!
• App testing is going great. Here’s a few design mockups to give you a sense of the direction the design is taking. Imagine a newsfeed screen that gives you a historical list of all the ‘events’ to do with your car that you can scroll through. With a click on an event, the next related screen would load. Car’s been towed? Find it on a map instantly!
Thoughts, ideas, comments? Please, write us at email@example.com. We want to hear from you. Join in and help create the best connected car experience ever!
Help us find more drivers like you. Share our story and the www.indiegogo.com/getmojio page with your friends!
