Expanding the App Gallery

April 17, 2015

Recently, we’ve been expanding and redesigning our App Gallery search functionality, making it much easier to locate relevant apps for specific industries. In order to make new users aware of how Fulcrum could be used, we populate the Fulcrum App Gallery with sample apps. By doing this, we have found that almost all new users start with one or a few of these apps to get started, and on occasion, some improve them for their own use. The use cases of Fulcrum continue to surprise and delight us.

Share Your Apps

We enjoy highlighting customer built apps in our App Gallery. We just love building web and mobile software, and we are not industry specific experts, so if you have a Fulcrum app that you built for your organization which could help others, let us know and we will highlight your app. Just email us at support@fulcrumapp.com if you are interested.

App Gallery Process

A lot of time is spent building these apps, so I thought I would guide our readers through our development process:

The first step is to find a form, survey, checklist or app being used in any industry. In this case, I’ve found an ADA Checklist for Existing Facilities from the ADA National Network.

The second step takes place in the Fulcrum app builder converting my downloaded checklist into a Fulcrum app.

The third step is to capture my newly created app into a walk through video of the app. This takes about five minutes to create and upload to YouTube. This provides new users with a sneak peek of Fulcrum.

The final step is to load everything into the App Gallery so it can be indexed and discovered and used by new users. Here is the completed ADA Checklist App in the app gallery.

Some fun examples of apps that would be great additions to the Fulcrum library (and a few that we’d personally be willing to try for ourselves!), are below:
  1. Home inspections: A digital platform can assist home inspectors in identifying potential issues such as water leaks, faulty wiring, and structural damage. The platform can use sensors and cameras to detect anomalies, and provide visual aids for the inspector to show to the homeowner.
  2. Theme park ride inspections: Digital platforms can help theme park inspectors manage the inspection of rides and attractions. The platform can use data from sensors and cameras to monitor ride safety, track visitor feedback, and schedule maintenance.
  3. Wildlife habitat inspections: Digital platforms can assist wildlife inspectors in monitoring wildlife habitats, tracking animal populations, and identifying areas for conservation efforts. The platform can use satellite imagery, GPS, and data from sensors to collect data and provide insights.
  4. Surfing spot inspections: A digital platform can help surf inspectors monitor wave conditions, water quality, and safety hazards. The platform can use live video feeds, weather data, and user-generated content to provide surfers with up-to-date information on surf spots around the world.
  5. Wine grape inspections: Digital platforms can assist wine grape inspectors in monitoring the quality and health of grape vines. The platform can use sensors and cameras to track grape growth, detect pests and diseases, and optimize irrigation and fertilization.
