CrowdNoize Mobile App
- Recently, I participated in an event sponsored by DePaul University's Coleman Entrepreneur Center and the College of Computing and Digital Media."Firestarter is a platform to conceive ideas, build products (IPhone Apps) and take them to market. Whether you’re an iPhone developer, HCI student or an idea-machine, here’s your chance to create a product and potentially start your own company.

I choose to work with a team called CrowdNoize. Members included Abhijit Sharma (Developer), Patrick Welby (Entrepreneur) and Domingo Meneses (Entrpreneur).The Idea:
The Problem Solved:
- A mobile application which would allow their existing users to access their RSS feed content from their website at live music events.
- The application would provide a platform for users to comment on shows, upload photos and videos in real time.
- Eventually, the application would allow users to buy merchandise directly and have it delivered to a specified address.
In 5 days, we managed to make the RSS feed deliver into a table. We also came up with various navigation scenarios.
- The application would provide a centralized location for people to post their photos and videos of their favorite live music events. Users can set their preferences to post their comments, photos and videos to Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites if they desire.
- It would provide a platform for a live music dialogue specific to a region.
- It would allow users to search for live music events based on their current location.
- It would allow users to purchase merchandise at live music events without having to carry it around the rest of the evening.
