FOR RELEASE MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 16
First Comic Book Price Guide In Apple’s App Store Launches Kickstarter
Campaign To Expand Platforms, Features
Zap-Kapow, a comic book price guide app, is looking for Kickstarter funding to expand to Android and desktop, add search by image functionality, real-time pricing, and more.
On September 16, Zap-Kapow, “a guide to comic books in your pocket”, will launch a 30-day Kickstarter campaign with the goal of expanding from iOS to Android users, adding the ability to take photos to search for comics, and incorporating a full-scale comic book collection management system for desktop fans. An industry first “real-time” pricing feature is also in the works.
The first comic book price guide created exclusively for iOS, Zap-Kapow launched in the Apple App Store in 2009. Since then it has served over 14,000 iPhone and iPad users as a monthly resource for comic book price guide information, including full-color cover images and creator details.
Unlike printed price guides, Zap-Kapow can be more nimble and timely in its pricing information, as well as offer more functionality and detail.
Alex Sheehan of TheRecapp.com says “Zap-Kapow aims to do away with the mystery and provide a go-to pricing guide for all comic books, so comic wheelers and dealers can say goodbye to those hefty outdated pricing guidebooks—and yes, they still make those.
“For anyone who’s hoping to avoid being ripped off when purchasing the latest addition to your collection of comics, it’s worth giving Zap-Kapow a shot for its convenience, accuracy and novelty.”
