KINN betas take off in the Airport App

About Airport App

Airport App is a new store for beta versions of apps that enable developers to showcase their apps and testers to discover and try them by joining TestFlight beta lists.

Made by Jordan Singer it looks like one of the most promising apps to make finding testers for new apps easier for indie developers, as well as provide enthusiastic users to try out features before they are available for general use.

I am super excited to announce that KINN has been part of the first batch of apps available in the Airport App and is accepting new testers.

In fact, most of the improvements coming soon in the new minor update to KINN v1.9.2 were driven based on user feedback provided by Airport testers.

Try KINN betas

The story behind KINN

Hi, this is DragoČ™, I am the indie developer behind KINN.

For the past few years I’ve been concerned with privacy, use of personal data by big corporations and manipulation on social media apps like Facebook and Instagram.

In 2018, I have made the conscious decision to completely remove most of my social media accounts (except Twitter). However, before actually doing it, I conducted a thorough analysis on my own use of those social media apps and discovered that for Facebook for instance, I was using it as a proxy to get in touch with friends and people I knew after seeing their posts on my timeline (thanks to the unknown algorithms), which might as well have been random for me. Another useful feature was knowing and being reminded about people’s birthdays.
