Mobile App Prototyping (Android)
Impact statement
This project will save us $14,612 , allowing us to invest more in direct community service. We are a non-endowed community foundation that provides support to non-profits. All money saved goes directly to the community through grants.

Project Details

What We Need
  • A proof-of-concept Android app prototype
  • Documentation of the functionality and how users will use the new app
  • Consultation on how to publish and maintain the app, as well as resources for finding assistance moving forward

  • Note: The Mobile app will be a functional prototype but will not be production ready with full user experience (i.e. visual design, animation, etc). Here are some examples of mobile app prototypes: Real Change, SF Trees.

Additional Details

We are about to end the development phase for our mobile and web-based app. We are looking for consultation around the maintenance phase and how to recruit beta testers, along with a one-year app improvement plan.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have The application developed and launched in both app stores, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a web-based prototype and back-end login credentials, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

Latino Force, the app name, will be used to engage, connect and build a strong digital space for Latino across Colorado.
