Do you want to gamify your app? Are you interested in taking r4nkt out for a test drive?
Are you interested in gamifying one of your apps or projects...?
R4nkt is ready to be opened up to a few people who are in a position to "kick its tires", so to speak. We are hoping for feedback that will help us iron out wrinkles, address any unforeseen pain points or missing functionality, and determine near-future feature development.
R4nkt is a drop-in gamification service that is meant to be used via API. It is platform-agnostic and looks to handle as much of the heavy lifting of gamification as possible, currently supporting many common gamification features that will add value to your application.
Some of its high-level features include:
For those interested, r4nkt has been built using the following tech stack:
The API has been thoroughly tested locally and is currently used in one small real-world application that is itself in its early stages of development. So far, things look good, but we would like to take r4nkt to the next level and open it up to several more applications that will further test its capabilities and help us see what's missing, if anything.
Much of the documentation is in place and a PHP SDK is currently under development. These are works-in-progress that will continue to be updated and improved as development and feedback dictate.
Pricing has not yet been determined, but we anticipate starting out with two or three subscription tiers with the cheapest tier priced at around USD 10 or 15 per month. Annual subscriptions will likely be discounted and there are no plans for a free tier.
We anticipate the main distinctions between tiers will be API rate limits, maximum player limit, data retention, or nesting levels (related to triggered actions and nested criteria groups). We do want to keep things as simple as possible, however, whatever the case.
Developers selected to work with us through the alpha/beta phases will not be expected to pay, of course, and we plan to give at least one month's notice before we begin to charge for the service.
We have reached out to some developers that we know and will post information on a few different social platforms with the hopes of generating a little interest. We hope to attract a small handful of developers who are genuinely interested in introducing gamification to their applications and who are willing to work with us over the next few weeks or months, providing feedback and helping us to make sure r4nkt is ready to go to the next level.
Thanks...! We're looking forward to working with you.
