Hello, everyone! With the iOS launch coming up within the next couple of weeks, we wanted to give a more in-depth explanation about the Pause For process.
Here are some screencaps of the basic functions you can expect.
A frequent question we’ve received is: where does the money come from?
You are not purchasing charity items with your own money. You earn Kin currency by completing pauses, which will be backed by sponsors. If you have more questions, here is our FAQ page. If your question isn’t there, feel free to tweet us!
Be the first to know when Pause For is available by following our social media and signing up for our email list.
Pause For is an app that combines productivity and philanthropy. Developed by Oroboros, it is set for iOS release this October.
How does it work?
To use Pause For, you simply:
- Select an amount of time you would like to focus on a task.
- Allow the app to lock you out of your phone
- Stay focused on your task for that period of time to earn virtual currency that can be traded for hot meals, clean water, vaccinations for puppies, or shoes for orphans. The charity options will grow as we do.
Take a pause for homework, writing, cleaning, meditating, or spending time with friends–all while earning money for causes you care about!
What’s happening next?
After being accepted into the Kin Developer Program, PauseFor is eligible for funding. However, in order to get the funding in full, PauseFor has to hit certain criteria.
After the app launch in October, PauseFor has to collect 10,000 active users by January.
It’s a big job!
