Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

Looking for a sponsor for our new iPhone app

Hi everyone,

While on hiatus, I've started developing an iPhone/iPad app for Dieselpunks.  It's been a hot request, and despite the fact that I'm an Android kind of guy, I understand that you want a better mobile solution for accessing all of the great content we post everyday on Dieselpunks.

I'm willing to offer this app for free via Apple's app store, but Apple requires me to buy a Developer's License. 

That license will cost me $99 and since I don't own any Apple products, I won't even be able to use the fruit of my labor.

It's now up to you.  If you would like a Dieselpunks app for iPhone and iPad, consider donating a few bucks towards this project.  When the donations hit $99, I'll purchase an Apple Developer's License and launch the Dieselpunks app for free in the app store.

The app project is dead.

Please enjoy http://m.dieselpunks.org for your mobile viewing.

Thank you.  Please drive through.

I can "feature" it, but even when it was spread around Facebook, Twitter, Digg, and StumbleUpon, no one was biting.

So far, we've raised $20 for this project.

I noticed this has fallen off the main page article list. Perhaps put it in the forums?

Yes.  I spread the news here and on the social networks on the same day.

No one but you and Deven have donated so far, and most people on the social networks just replied that they want one an Android app.  

There's just no pleasing some people :)

Have you posted about this on twitter, facebook or other sites that people can follow from.

I have run into some people who follow Dieselpunks on facebook but rarely visit the site.

Interesting proposition.  Let me consider the options and consequences.

Oh. I have java enabled. However, I'm on Ubuntu and its not always nice with java.

@Lawren - The preview on the website is written in javascript and will only work on a browser that has Javascript loaded and enabled.  The actual app will run natively on the iPhone.

At this point, we have $20 and a bunch of requests for an Android app.  Things are looking grim for this project unless the iPhoners can rally.
