Everyone has an idea. However many times these are not properly recorded and never given the chance to blossom. Ideeeas offers a simple way to record ideas and share them with others. There is no telling where an idea will go if it catches on and gains popularity. Users of Ideeeas can build a simple profile for their idea, including two images and a Tweet. The system keeps ideas concise and to the point, and gives users a very easy to pass the idea along to others. The idea profile includes the user, date and current status (whether the idea has been completed or not). Tags can also be applied to make ideas easier to find. Users can also find the Ideas of other Ideeeas users through the tag system or by clicking on the popular, social, everyone, staff picks and shuffle buttons.
Ideeeas is the combined effort of Welab, 3Bits and Volo. It almost seems fitting that a concept such as the one behind Ideeeas would be born from the minds of three creative groups of professionals.
Ideeeas is unique because of the limitless potential of the ideas it allows users to create. The site utilizes a simple system, which makes it flexible to work with any concept imaginable. Users can create their idea, adding two images and a concise description in the form of a Tweet. The ideas can then be shared with others and given the chance to grow into something bigger.
The Ideeeas website users a well organized design to allow users to showcase their ideas. A primarily grey and white background is contrasted by a rich red logo and hints of blue. The overall style is elegant, with a lot of potential. The success of an idea depends on the user, but the Ideeeas format offers plenty of flexibility to present an idea in a concise, effective manner.
Visitors can register for an Ideeeas account two ways. The first is by clicking on the blue Facebook button at the top right hand corner of the homepage. Users who do not wish to register through Facebook can click on the red “Sign Up” link just below the Facebook button. A registration form emerges from below the link, requesting an email address, password (although for some reason, the password field is not labeled), name and Twitter info. After entering the information, the user can click the red “Sign Up” button displayed prominently at the bottom of the registration form to continue.
Ideeeas is fueled by the ideas posted by its user base. The site does not charge a fee for its services. In reality, to justify a subscription or set up fee, Ideeeas would have to add to its available features. The site works well for what it is. Ideeeas is still in beta so it is possible that more features could be added in the future, along with a possible paid membership. No further information has been provided about planned changes.
Ideeeas is a helpful tool for anyone who has a good idea they want to share with the world. The system is easy to use so the user does not need extensive programming or web design knowledge to create an attractive idea page.
