ReportFires is now available on App Store, 20201010Posted: October 10, 2020
20201010 is a beautiful day.
It is a day for celebration. We made a few great things yesterday.
1.ReportFires app Kickstarter campaign is successfully finished
Our 30-day crowdfunding project ended yesterday morning. Thank all 105 backers from 14 countries! We met our funding goal of US$20000!
We initially were not sure we could meet the goal. App is not a popular Kickstarter category. Anyway, we decided to fund the development of the Free app ourselves. Any third party financial support is a bonus for us! Nothing to lose!
The campaign helped us to promote the app and reach more potential users! B2B and B2C marketing are very different. This is a very valuable lesson learned for us!
2.ReportFires is approved by App Store
On the same morning, Apple approved our submission to App Store! The whole approval process was than 48-hour! Pretty good.
Apple asked a few questions about the use of the ReportFires app and the target uses. The requested a video to show how our AI image detection of wildfire smoke works.
We replied promptly. Apple responded quickly too. It made us thought that Apple found the app useful and wanted to make it available on the App Store ASAP!

3.Unwire.Pro interview is published
Unwire.Pro, a popular tech news website, interviewed RoboticsCats.com a few days ago. They found our app was very unique and they were interested in the golden circle, the why-how-what of ReportFires.
The Unwire.Pro crew was very professional and they asked many good questions. We provided them great answers too!
They published the article yesterday at noon! What a coincidence! It helped us to promote the ReportFires app too.
We believe the ReportFires app is a useful tool. It is useful when people are using it.

4.Successful fire test in Europe
In yesterday afternoon Hong Kong Time, which was morning Eastern Europe Time (EET), our partner was doing a fire test to demonstrate InsightFD features to the forest firefighter department. The weather was windy and very challenging for wildfire detection! We’re glad that the InsightFD system successfully detected wildfire in the fire test! Cool!
It was a great result. The partner and we spend huge effort to optimize InsightFD for the Eastern European forest environment! And our effort pays off!
It is a beautiful Saturday!
