After 30 long, warm, and somewhat rainy August (and a few September!) days, plus way too many cups of coffee to count, we have reached the end of the Connectify Dispatch Kickstarter Campaign.
We initially launched the campaign to prove that there was demand in the market for faster Internet. We turned to you, our users, to show the world that it was possible to Kickstart a networking revolution.
Our initial goal of $50,000 promised everyone a working version of Dispatch for PC, but thanks to our backers, we’ve raised $107, 623. This means an even better version of Dispatch will be coming soon. Here are the amazing features they helped us unlock:
$65,000 Stretch Goal: Dispatch Analytics Dashboard
Connectify Dispatch will now include a sleek dashboard, offering users detailed statistics and graphs with metrics on each available Internet connection. With the Dispatch Analytics Dashboard you’ll be able to see which networks are offering the best performance at-a-glance!
$75,000 Stretch Goal: Avoid Common Problems with Internet Connections
We asked backers what features they’d like to see implemented into the software, and they overwhelmingly responded to a new feature that automatically avoids slow DNS servers to keep things moving super-fast!
$85,000 Stretch Goal: Metered Connections
The second-most requested feature from our backer survey has arrived. Now Dispatch users will have the ability to set data caps on individual connections. For example, you will be able to easily set Dispatch to only use 3 gigabytes per month through that expensive 4G modem.
$100,000 Stretch Goal: Application-Aware Connection Selection
Application-Aware Connection Selection will control which individual programs utilize each Internet connection in Dispatch. With this amazing feature, you can tell Dispatch to never use the office Internet for your BitTorrent downloads, or always use your home’s Ethernet connection for your video game’s traffic.
We know you can’t wait to get your hands on Dispatch, and we can’t wait to get it to you. In order to make it as fast, and easy, as possible, we will be reaching out to you in the next few days with some questions regarding your rewards.
Because of all 1708 of our backers, Connectify Dispatch will be an amazing, feature-rich software with an absolutely beautiful interface. For those who just missed our campaign, you can sign up to get your own copy at www.connectify.me/dispatch.
