Hello and thank you for your interest in the RICEKILLER APP for iPhone.

The RKC App is being ported for the Android Operating System and will be available in late summer 2011.

The RKC App is an innovative new way to find events in your area, promote events you create and connect with local car enthusiasts. The app also allows you to report police hideouts, checkpoints and traps all directly to the map. It allows you to mark road construction to the map, and allows you to photograph an exotic car and tag the photo to the map.

The RKC App is powered by "Klutch22 Technology". Julien Noel, the owner of Klutch22, began development of this app technology several years ago in Canada. Klutch has teamed up with Ricekiller to release a simple, free, and functional application for your smart phone than can enhance your experience in your car.

Here are the basic functions of the RKC App 1.0.

1. Map shows all others users of the APP in real time on the map
2. Map shows all events, shows and meets on the map in the exact location they will be held.
3. App allows you to join a Car Club, and view other members of your club who are using the app on the map with a special star under their car.
4. App allows you to report exotics, cops and road hazards for other users to see.
5. App allows you to send a push text notification to other app users directly with the message feature.

Creating your account and profile management.


The app does allow you to crate an account within the app. However, the most efficient way to create an account is to visit www.klutch22.com and do it there. Once you have created your free account, you can use the klutch22 website to manage your profile, add pictures of your car, edit your cars information, and add events or clubs to the app.

Adding meets, shows or events to the map.

Adding your own events to the map is simple. Simply visit www.klutch22.com on your desktop computer. Once you log in, click "Events". Here, you will see a list of all events you have created, or have RSVP'd to within the app in the order of which they are happening. At the top, click "Create an Event" and simply add your information. The website allows you to upload an image (event flyer), and use a pin to point the exact location on the map. Once you click "Create Event" the event is added to the Klutch22 server, and will be able to be seen by all users of the RKC app on the map. If you need to edit the event for any reason, simply log into www.klutch22.com, click events, and then click edit event.

Adding Car Clubs, Forum Groups or Teams to the map.


Adding your own club to the map is simple. Simply visit www.klutch22.com on your desktop computer. Once you log in, click "Krews". Here, you will see a list of all clubs you might already be a member of. At the top, click "Create a Krew" and simply add your information. The website allows you to upload an image about your club, information and it's name. Once you click Create, the Club is added to the App's directory and can be found by searching for it's name within the app. Within the app, search for the name of the club you wish to join. Once you find it, just click the name, and click "Join this club".

Reporting objects to the map (Exotics, Cops & Road Hazards)

With the app open and you logged in to your account, you will see a "Megaphone" icon. When you click this icon you get the three choices:
1. Police
2. Road Hazard
3. Exotic Car

Clicking the police button adds a police badge icon to the map at the exact point you were driving in when you placed the button. This badge is visible to all other users of the app, and will be useful to warn them about speed traps, checkpoints or other danger.

Clicking the Road Hazard button adds a construction icon to the map at the exact point you were driving in when you placed the button. This badge is visible to all other users of the app, and will be useful to warn them about potholes, bad road conditions, construction or gravel that could damage cars.

Clicking the exotic button will turn your phone into a camera. The camera can be used to take a picture of the exotic you are seeing. Once the picture is shot, it will be tagged to the map in the exact location you were driving in when you took the picture. The exotic icon will be added to the map for all other users to see, and when they click it, they will be able to view the picture that you took.

Sending a message to other app users within the app.

On the main map screen, you will see all other users of the app as small cars. Each of these cars represents an actual user of the app, in real time. Assuming they have added correct information to their profile, clicking on their car will tell you what kind of ride it is, show you a picture and what car club they are affiliated with. Touching the cars icon on the map gives your two options. The orange arrow will take to to that owners profile page, and the mail icon will allow you to send that user a push notification. There are several pre-programmed messages you can send, or you may type your own. Once you click send, the other user will receive the message directly on their phones screen and be able to respond to you if they wish.


************************

The basic premise of the app is that car enthusiasts can use it to locate each other, and locate and promote cool events in their area. With facebook and forums growing out of control, it can be very difficult to sort through what events are happening in your area and how many people are actually going to attend. With the app, you can see "on the map" where events will be held, see how many people are attending, and on the actual day of the event see how many RKC App users are there in real time. When you leave the house and are out in your car, the RKC App should be "On" and your status set to "Available". When you are at home, or do not wish to be contacted by others, you should simply exit the app by double clicking the home button, holding your thumb over the RKC app icon, and clicking X.

The more users who are actively using the app by logging on daily, adding events, and sharing with their friends, the better it is for everyone. The app grows in usefulness and application as it grows in users. So, we are therefore inviting everyone across the nation to download the RKC App for iPhone free of charge, and use it for all it's abilities to help grow and promote car related activities in your area.

Event promoters and car meet & show creators should embrace this app as a innovative solution to market their events to thousands of users. It's totally free.

We thank you for your interest in the RKC app. We are eagerly awaiting the 1.01 update which will include many new features and make the app even more simple to use, and of course the release of the app for Android Market. This will all come. For now, we need you support by using the app, encouraging others to do so, and sharing this information with your club, forum of group you are associated with. Thank you.

Anyone still using this app? I've thought about getting it but I'm not seeing to many people talking about it anymore?
