Interesting start, I'm feeling a lot of twitter vibes though.
I really hope app.net meets its goal and gets traction. If nothing else, we need proof that business models other than advertising and data mining can work on the internet.
I'm getting sick of being the product. I want to be the customer.
With regards to the "205", does this imply the character count left for the status? Will app.net stick to the low character count of Twitter or introduce a different "tariff"?
Yes, it refers to the remaining characters. We have a limit of 256. The limit allows for complete thoughts and appears a lot in programming: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/256_(number).
256 seems good to me, especially if URLs get treated differently. Twitter's URL shortening doesn't seem ideal, so maybe some other way of embedding a full URL, but not counting all the characters would be good?
Great work on the funding so far. It's looking likely that the goal will be met. Just need a few more people to hand over their cash.
This is probably a stupid question...but will there be any apps/mobile interface?
We may be creating an iOS app, but a few outside developers have already started making their own!
You're going with a (generally) new twist on things, I'd encourage relooking the age-old social network UI/UX conventions. I know it's not reasonable or wise to reinvent everything, but there are definitely UX improvements to be made with the current conventions. Understand what users want out of the service/feature/page and go from there :)
Anyways, great job on the details!
