Hi Indiegogo fans, I'm Craig!... an entrepreneur with a passion for ‘smart’ mobile communication solutions and personal privacy in technology.
The limited functionality for flexible private communication inspired me to create a solution where users have control over how they connect with the world.
Violation of personal privacy is affecting everyone, each in different ways. From Heartbleed to email harvesting to whatever revelation comes out of Wikileaks next, it's common sense to start taking our personal privacy seriously.
That’s where Shuffle’s smart communication solution comes in.
A layer of privacy for your mobile phone
You can create multiple Shuffle numbers to manage various social or business needs and situations. Calls, texts and voicemails are grouped by Shuffle number to keep your communications separated.
Each Shuffle number comes with its own voice mailbox and personalized voicemail message using voice recording or text to speech functionality.
Your Shuffle numbers are reserved for 30 days at a time, at which point it will either auto-renew or expire, depending on your preference settings. You can also delete a Shuffle at any time before the term expires if you no longer need it.
You can receive and manage voice calls within the app, with the option to ring first or go directly to voicemail. Calls are charged directly from your account balance, but all your Shuffle-to-Shuffle calls are always free.
Text messages are grouped by Shuffle number. It’s easy to search your message history to pick up a previous conversation, or find old messages. Messages are charged against your account balance, but all your Shuffle-to-Shuffle texts are always free.
Shuffle email addresses forward to your regular email address so you don’t need to expose your actual email when posting online.
e.g. Q1X7@shuffle.email forwards messages to email@example.com
You can have 3 free active Shuffle forwarding emails. Thereafter you are billed against your account balance.
We've thought a LOT about real-world applications for Shuffle. The truth is, there are an endless amount, and we fully expect to see more in the future - which we’ll include in our app. But here are a few things you might find Shuffle useful for today:
Shuffle offers flexibility to users so you’re not locked into a specific plan. Users are able to scale numbers and emails up and down to fit their needs over time by using our flexible, transparent pricing model.
With Shuffle, you can apply your account balance to voice calls or text messages for any Shuffle number in your account as well as for your email forwarding aliases.
Shuffle is also the first and only privacy app to offer users a disposable email forwarding address alongside their disposable numbers!
Shuffle’s pricing model is completely transparent and very affordable. We don’t believe in the 'credits' model that disguises actual costs to users.
You’ll know exactly what your Shuffle number costs per month, how much you pay for calls per minute, and the cost of each text message. There are NO hidden fees!
So far on the project, we've gotten through the branding, design, marketing video and a LARGE chunk of mobile development for the iOS app. With your help we can wrap up development and testing so we can launch iOS to the public by October this year.
Here’s a breakdown of what has been accomplished so far...
To get this far, so we could show supporters a real business they’re backing, I've funded Shuffle out of my own pocket. All we have left is to wrap up the final integration and testing of iOS to release Shuffle in the App Store.To complete this final stage of iOS we need US$13,000 to push the project over the goal line and bring Shuffle to life.
We need you! Please support our campaign and claim some of the awesome perks we're offering exclusively to our project backers.
We've already started with the Android UI design. Development will commence once iOS is launched, all kinks are ironed out, and Shuffle starts gaining some traction.
If all goes according to plan we’ll launch Shuffle for Android on the Google Play Store early in 2015.
All funds raised over and above our goal will be allocated towards the Android development budget. All contributors will have lifetime Shuffle bragging rights for iOS and Android.
We've put together the following perks so you can help us create Shuffle and be part of taking flexible ‘smart’ communication and privacy protection to the next level:
Thank you for supporting Shuffle! With your help we can create 'smart' communication solutions so everyone can connect privately.
The success of Shuffle will affect people worldwide in many different ways, and ultimately make everyday communication a safer and more pleasant experience.
We wouldn't be able to do it without your backing - you’re awesome! :)
