What can you use the app for?

Threddie gives users a simple solution for brainstorming on multiple topics. Sometimes, a project involves more than just one specific topic. While there are many organizational applications and others that allow users to converse, many did not seem to offer a simple solution that could manage a diverse collection of topics. This need helped bring about the birth of Threddie. Users can hold in depth conversations without dealing with highly detailed software. The system works under the idea that too many features can actually become counter productive by raising the cost of software. In these situations, Threddie is available to give users a place to brainstorm and collaborate on a project, covering numerous topics as necessary. The system uses familiar threads so users can quickly adapt.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Personal experience is what drove Threddie creator Pedro Candeias to come up with the concept behind the application. Candeias found that, after brainstorming with a fellow office worker, available software solutions were lacking. Most were too expensive because the features they needed were packaged with many more they did not. Some were too complicated. Candeias eventually went to work on Threddie. His goal was to keep the system as simple as possible, suing a basic post and comment format. Users could quickly participate in discussions and give input without a great deal of expense or time to learn the software.

What are the differences to other apps?

Threddie offers a simple service that is tailored to suit the needs of a team brainstorming or working on a project. The application was designed to be affordable and comes with only the basic features the user really needs to get the job done. This helps keep both costs and the confusion factor as low as possible.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The Threddie website invites users with a playful, yet stylish logo outlined in grey. The site is well organized, with simple navigational links found at the top and important features highlighted within the homepage. The Threddie system is designed to be very simple, utilizing a posting system that is essentially a thread.

How does the registration process work?

A new visitor can try Threddie by clicking on the light green “Try It for Free” Button at the bottom, left hand corner of the homepage. The user must first select their desired membership type. Next, users are asked to provide a name, company or organization name, user’s title, email address, password, and desired Threddie URL. Submitting the information by clicking the “create my account” button at the bottom of the form means that the user agrees to the site’s privacy policy and terms of service.

Users can choose from four paid memberships. The cheapest is the Pro, which costs just over $30 per month and includes unlimited brainstorms, up to six users and 5 GBs of storage space. The next step up is the Plus plan which includes 10 GBs of storage, up to 15 users and custom backgrounds and costs around $65.
