Evly is a social network built around the concept of crowdsourcing. The user can come up with a crowdsourcing challenge, which could be anything from finding a viable solution to a problem or issue to finding ways to obtain funding for a project. The user can invite their friends, colleagues, family members and anyone else they know to participate and share their ideas and resources. The application provides users with access to a community of others who also believe in the concept of crowdsourcing. Evly is also built around the idea that when one problem is solved through crowdsourcing, the solution can present even more issues or opportunities that could be solved using the same method. Evly encourages user participation by allow its users to present challenges and voting systems that allow each challenge visitor to provide input. Along with providing solutions, Evly users can also vote on what they feel is the best solution when numerous options are presented. Maintaining a user friendly design, Evly allows users to create competitions and responses using the application’s built in wizards. The user only has to fill in the blanks and send the message or challenge. Challenges can also include images, videos and other media.Show more screenshots »
