GetActive – An Innovative, New App Connecting Active Communities Announced

Enabling people to live their active lifestyles no matter where they are.

AUSTIN, Texas – December 28, 2015 – GetActive, an innovative, new app connection active communities, was recently announced. This new application is enabling people to live their active lifestyles no matter where they are. With the GetActive app, connecting with active communities will be easier than ever. The world’s active communities will be at people’s fingertips, and no matter where they are, a user will be able to easily connect with people who share a common interest or passion for an activity. Whether it be mountain biking, running, surfing, hiking, rock climbing, yoga, fishing, disc golf, kayaking, parkour, or any other activity a person can think of.

GetActive will empower active people with an effortless way to join active communities in their area, connect with other members and organize activities. Whether a person is in their hometown or on the other side of the world, finding a running partner, a hiker to guide them on a trail, a pickup game, or someone to show them the basics of a new activity will be as easy as ordering a pizza! After downloading GetActive, users will follow a few simple steps to create a profile. Then, they will complete their profile by confirming their location and selecting all of the active communities in the area they would like to join. When a user is ready to get active, open the app and change the status from “Resting” to “Active.” 

Users then can go into any one of their communities and see, in real-time, all of the members who are currently “Active.” See what activity other members are doing like, “Joe is going on a Five-mile run at 2:00 pm” or “Jane is running sprints at Austin High @ SOON.” If a user is up for some sprints, they can select Jane’s profile, press the “Connect” button and it will begin an instant messenger for the user to coordinate details with Jane. Traveling soon? When a user arrives at a new destination, open the GetActive app and turn on the location services to explore all of the unique active communities in that area, they will be able to set the radius. This application allows people to join the communities they are interested in, connect with members and get active!

With GetActive, no matter where a person is, they will be able to easily connect with active people, continue their routine activities, or try something they have been interested in. However, before everyone can enjoy this incredible, connecting application, GetActive needs help. That’s why they launched this Kickstarter campaign. The goal of this project is to raise $210,000 by February 1, 2016. The funds raised will go towards hiring one front-end and one back-end developer. Version 1.0 of the app will be built in a JavaScript framework for the web, with iOS and Android versions generated by wrapping the site with PhoneGap (or a similar web-to-app tool like React Native). This will reduce cost, team size, development time during the ramp up to the initial launch, and allow for efficient fixes and updates post-launch. 

To help bring this innovative app to market, please visit the Kickstarter campaign or click here. Perks will be delivered by February 2017. 

Please keep in mind this is an “all-or-nothing” deal, which means if the campaign does not reach the funding goal then the project cannot move forward. So know that any amount given can make a difference, and this is an incredible opportunity to be a part of a special campaign! Help GetActive reach the goal by sharing this on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks. The more people know about this, the more support the campaign will receive.
