App.net selected the RoundTable app as the first project to host on their new crowdfunding platform. The crowdfunding platform, called Backer, was announced on January 25. One week later, on January 31, the first campaign went live with the RoundTable app. The campaign reached over 25% of its funding target in the first day.
RoundTable is a collaboration tool designed for groups. Allowing people to chat securely, sharing documents and images with an easy-to-use, no-fuss, native Mac application. The retail price of the app will be $20 but early backers are able to get a discount of up to 75% by commiting to pre-order the product.
RoundTable is being developed by Peer Assembly, a software development company based in Wicklow, Ireland. Their other products include productivity apps Focus Time and Goal Streaks as well as the localization tool, Linguan.
