Three guys from Dallas, Brad Alesi, Stu Hill, and Wes Hendrix, want to build an app that publishes reviews of restaurants and bars in haiku form. They’re using Kickstarter to fund the project.
Haiku Review uses actual traditional Haiku guidelines – reviews cannot be longer than 17 syllables. The developers say that Haiku Review sets itself apart from other similar apps with three different things it does:
1. Ensures Brevity:
We get turned off by the length of reviews on several of the leading review sites because they leave nothing to the imagination. Seventeen syllables and a recommendation tell you just enough, in a fun way, without spoiling the experience before you get there.
2. Creates a Shared Experience:
Haiku Review allows you to write a review on your phone at the location – creating a shared experience of writing the review, in haiku, with your friends.
3. Inspires Creativity:
While we use review apps and sites quite a bit, none of us have ever written a review. We believe the Haiku provides a fun, creative structure that will inspire people to write a review.
The creators are still at the very beginning of their journey. They need to raise $65,000 to move forward, and they only have 23 days left to reach their goal. If Haiku Review sounds like something you’d like to become a part of, then contribute and become a beta tester.
