How UFOaholic started?

July 22, 2012

Some people have been questioning about how the idea of developing UFOaholic came up.

This way I’ve decided to ask  our developer to write to you guys a message explaining all about it.

Check it out what he told:

Hello everyone,

My name is António and I am currently working as a mobile developer at Ubiwhere.

UFOaholic was my first project in the company. The idea came from a friend of mine whose hobby is to investigate UFO sightings that appear around the world everyday. He explained me that there were daily reports of these sightings and that there were several UFO communities where anyone could send information regarding their sightings. They would only need to send a description, the approximate location and with some luck a video or a photograph of the event.The problem with this is that people would have to write this on a paper and carry a camera, so that they could send this later to the forums and websites of UFO communities.

Since nowadays almost everyone owns a smartphone that carries everywhere they go, I though it would be nice to have a mobile application that would make use of the smartphones potentialities (like Internet connection, GPS, Camera and Compass).

Before presenting this idea to my bosses I’ve done some research on the existing UFO communities and mobile applications on both Android and iOS platforms as I would have to discover in what way this application could help these people to record and share their sightings. The idea was to allow anyone interested in UFOs to check sightings reported all over the world.

It was taken special care on the application’s flow and design. The application would have to be simple, attractive and easy to use. For this matter there was a special team of designers helping me.

The application is available for iPhone only and we are currently promoting it all over the web in order to share knowledge and experiences about UFOs with all UFO communities, hunters and lovers. I know that are a lot of ways to report UFO sightings, but sometimes we don’t carry any camera and don’t have any witnesses with us to prove or share it. Furthermore, UFOaholic it’s handy, fast, easy and simple to use.

I really enjoyed developing this application and one of the things that surprised me more was the number of sightings that are reported in a single day. I would never imagine that they would be some many and I have to admit that it makes you think that they are really out there!

António Pinho

Thank you very much  for your message António!
