A cross-platform social app exclusively for Halfbakers,
designed to work on Android, iPhone, Blackberry, and
Symbian smartphones. Microsoft's 'Windows Phone 7' can
suck it. WebOS isn't included because HP just announced
they're shutting down mobile operations and so it's likely
drain very shortly. If this changes, they can
join the club.
This does not replace or modify the Halfbakery itself in
way, shape or form. What it does is allow willing
Halfbakers to create a user profile with contact
information and collaborate on projects online through
interface similar to both Facebook and Google Docs. I
guess if anything, it most resembles Google Wave but
with a vastly more user-friendly and less confusing
Sign in requires a Halfbakery account that has been
for a minimum of 6 months. Users can post aspiring
Halfbakery submissions they aren't quite comfortable
posting on the HB directly (or even ideas they have no
intention of ever posting on the HB, perhaps because
they plan on really Baking them) on their wall, similar to
Facebook posts, and they can be edited by other
Halfbakers in real-time similar to Google Docs.
Users can be reached by posting annotations on their
or by clicking their username to take you directly to a
'compose email' page with their address already in the
field. If you want, you can also post your phone number
your profile, and set your filters to allow only starred
Halfbakers (these are Halfbakers whose profiles that you
have added a star to) to actually edit your ideas, so that
unstarred Halfbakers can merely read and annotate.
Once (or if) you feel the idea has reached full maturity,
you can then
click the "submit" button, which opens a link to the
Halfbakery submission page and automatically fills in the
proper categories and pastes the title/description/body
the idea into the proper fields.
Can also be used, just as effectively, for non-HB related
social banter between Halfbakers, so you don't have to
worry about non-HBers pestering you or making stupid
uneducated comments about about the inside jokes ('Elf,
Shirley, Halfbaked, Bone, Bun, etc.) we share.
