Kanka is constantly growing and improving, and we want the world to know about all the awesome things we are adding to the app.

Nine Month Status Report

By Ilestis 1 year ago

It's been just over nine months since the app was made available to the public, which means it's time for a quarterly status report!

Let's start off with some raw numbers.

Numbers

Statistics

Top 10 countries

Switzerland is no longer in the top 10!

The app gets about 80 daily visits. This value has been steady for 6 months, but session duration is going up (average of 9 minutes).

Google tells us that the biggest demographic are 18-34 year old (95% of users, going up) males (92.4% of users, down 0.2%).

Patrons on Patreon continue to be amazing and cover all hosting costs. We've nearly hit the 50$ goal a few times, but aren't quite there yet. It's difficult to not feel bad when people cancel their pledge, especially after just a month, but it's important not to take it to heart.

Community

The community around the app continues to be amazing! The support and encouragement I get daily is incredibly humbling and motivating.

The Discord continues to grow (126 users, with about 10-15% "dead" accounts) with daily conversations, as well as people helping out each other when I'm away or sleeping, which is amazing. The subreddit has become incredibly quiet, especially with users encounting errors in the app now pushed to the Discord.

Behind the scenes

The summer heat didn't allow for much work to be done on the app, but one of the biggest features was deployed: Public Campaigns. The QA team continues to do an amazing work at finding issues before the users.

Some of the big features I want to work on in the upcoming quarter are:

Helping Out

We are always welcoming to people who want to help out! Being the only developer makes it hard for me to find time to work on all the features I want for the app, as well as manage testers, translators, videos and content. Some skills that could help out include:

If you have any experience in some of these fields and want to help out, please contact me on reddit, discord or [email protected]

That's about it for today! Hope you all enjoyed this posted and I look forward to your continued support of the app.

As always, come say hi on the Discord, and thank you for using Kanka!
