Hungry mouths and generous souls fund food truck location aggregator

The Samaritan site, if you will, just raised $11,000 via crowdfunding site Pozible, thanks perhaps to generous souls and hungry mouths. Unlike many crowfunding projects, donors to WhereTheTruck get nothing other than the assurance of quickly finding the trucks they want, and the promise to build an iPhone app.

With iPhone app, Pygg’s social payments just got easier

But Pygg’s market opportunity arises largely because banks are, well, banks. Even though most banks offer a variety of mobile transactions, they are hardly easy to use.

Brandon Cowan, 2011 Anthill 30under30 Winner

When the 17 year-old's mum misplaced her car in a large parking lot, the ol' lightbulb came on. With a partner, Cowan developed iParkedHere, a iPhone app that combines GPS tech, the phone's camera and a simple timer to help people locate their vehicles and keep track of time left in a metered parking spot. The app, which sells for $1.99 in the Apple Store, has attracted thousands of downloads and became the tentpole for Cowan's software development company, Crazy Dog Apps.

How to win Coles Egg Racer game. Prepare for a beat-up!

The app is a rare example of an Aussie brand developing a promotion exclusively for iPhone users. I'm talking about the development of an actual application, rather than the increasingly passe trend of giving an iPhone away as a prize. Or, strangely, giving iPhone users free access to Twitter and making a big fuss about it.

Most homepages dedicate too much of their valuable space to predictable and generally unhelpful information, such as the purpose of the business, their products and services, their achievements and needy invitations to ‘buy, buy, buy’ or ‘contact us for a free consultation on no obligation quote’.
