What Is Magpie?

Hello all. This place has been something of a ghost town for a while but I still get the feeling that many of us are lurking about, just like myself. So I'd like to ask all you lurkers to take a look at what I've been working on for a little while.

Starting this year I switched jobs to a startup company developing...well, some kind of software. There's been a bit of identity trouble. But we're on the cusp of something major and I'd like you all to see what I've been working on and help make it better if it interests you.

Head over to playmagpie.com and check it out. Magpie will be out in the world by August, and while it almost certainly won't make it to your home town in the immediate future, we have our sights set on building this empire in the many smaller towns, particularly college towns, that a lot of social apps have ignored in favor of large metro areas. And if there's a demonstrated interest, we can take it to the people in charge of the places you like and get things started. And once this empire is off the ground, I'm going to convince my new company to get serious about making some quality games - again with your feedback, since I know you guys and respect your preferences.

Feel free to say anything you like about Magpie in response to this bulletin. I'm a little proud of coding that splash web site, and even prouder of the coding I've done for what's to come.

I still don't get it. Does it like, spawn money into my empty pockets?

So, it works as a coupons, vouchers and store credit stored through your phone that connects with stores.

That's actually a pretty awesome idea, that is definitely going to take off.

But how exactly does it work, do you have to put money onto the magpie app to buy things online, or do you just buy things in stores and they just take your Magpie account name/scan somehow, and then get the discounts?

Either way something like this really is awesome and convenient  Thumbs Up
