FastFig at SXSW

Greetings Fig Buddies!

Our time in Texas is just about up, and the last month has been a total whirlwind. A few things before we get to the fun stuff:
  • FigPics are up and working on the site. You can now upload your own images to FigPads, or take pictures with your device's camera. Our main priority now is making FastFig as mobile-friendly as possible as soon as possible.
  • It wouldn't be right for us to finish March without a word about our accelerator, DreamIt. Working with them has been an unbelievable experience that has done amazing things for FastFig. If you've got startup aspirations, we can not recommend highly enough applying to accelerator programs like DreamIt, and any aspiring entrepreneurs should take a look at the DreamIt classes to see if there's a good fit.
  • How awesome are FastFig users? One of our early adopters is a teacher in Round Rock named Mark Rogers. He makes videos like this:

Please note: Making music videos about graphing is not a prerequisite to use FastFig. Yet.
