RoBOPPics joins the Microsoft Startup Founders Hub, Releases App in Google Play Store

RoBOPPics recently became a Microsoft for Startups Founders Hub Partner, as RoBOPPics moves towards the release of the BallBOPPer Autonomous Tennis Training Robot on Kickstarter.

RoBOPPics also released the alpha version of the BallBOPPer Tennis Training App in the Google Play Store for players to try out. BallBOPPer Tennis Training App - Apps on Google Play

While you cannot do everything in the app without the robot, you are able to see how "Patterns of Play" are constructed and then sequenced into Playlists; you can create your own custom Patterns and Playlists; and you can publish your best Patterns and Playlists into the Community Catalog for other players to try.

If you have any questions about the app, you can create a Story in the Community section of the App and set the Focus to Support. Or you can send feedback directly to RoBOPPics at: info@roboppics.com.
