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

12 Month Status Report

By Ilestis 2 weeks ago

With Kanka now one year old, time to look at some stats!

Let's start off with some raw numbers.

Numbers

Statistics

Top 10 countries

Switzerland is back in the top 10!

The app gets about 300 daily visits. This value was steady at 200 for several months and raised with the new users following some promoting of the app online.

Google tells us that the biggest demographic still is 18-34 year old (86% of users, going down) males (91% of users, going down).

Patrons on Patreon continue to be amazing and cover all hosting costs and help towards me hopefully being able to work fixed amount of hours per week on Kanka. We're 10% towards the first life changing goal!

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 (230 users) with daily conversations, as well as people helping out each other when I'm away or sleeping, which is amazing. ArcOnyx has been promoted to Moderator, so be sure to send him, as is tradition, lots of flowers. Poolitzer built an awesome bot for the Discord, and a German-speaking "Die Kneipe" channel was opened.

The subreddit continues to be quiet.

Behind the scenes

Autumn was a wild month with the Patreon changes and the surge of new users. The biggest new features were the new Maps and Tags, an API for people to build tools with Kanka, translations to Italian, as well as fighting off DDos attacks and live streaming!

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 any 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!
