Cosplanning App

So there's this new App to help all of us out: http://cosplanner.catokusanagi.com/

so basically what it does, is we can input new costumes and in those files we're able to add items we need to make or add items we need to buy (and how much they are/going to be), it also adds up all the money you spent on the cosplay so you can see how much you're going to spend/how much you did spend.

Another cool thing it has, when you check things off that you've completed/bought it shows you the percentage of how much you've done! Which is super cool? So you know how much farther you really need to go.

It has a bunch of other cool features, but those are my favorites! I actually use this app and it's great, so easy to use and so simple (I used to write on paper or on a tumblr draft, so it was really inconvinent), not to mention you can just pull it out when you're shopping and see what you need and not have to worry about forgetting to get something.

Just thought I'd share the wonder that is this app~

I love this app!! It's such an awesome idea. I've only had it for like a week, but I already know I'm going to use it all the time.

Yes! This is the app I've been waiting for. I can now say goodbye to all the number scribbling in my cosplay notebooks (which I can save for more sketching now!).

I downloaded this a week ago on my Nook and I love it! It helps me plan out what I still need for my costumes!

There's a catch to it... it can access things such as your location, other apps on your phone, and possibly even your contact list. Presumably it mines this data to try and sell you stuff. Of course, the final decision is yours, but there is definitely more privacy concerns than it might appear.

A marketing prof at my school actually did a talk on this, because she was really concerned that students didn't understand what they were agreeing to. Many of these "free" apps require you to click an agreement (that nobody reads through of course), basically it's the equivalent of E-mailing the company your phone's password and allowing them to go through everything.

I mean, the developers of these "free" programs are not making them out of the kindness of their hearts. They get money from marketers based on how much of your data they can pass along.

Sorry to be the wet blanket, but there's no such thing as a free lunch

Hi! MidoriUma! I'm Cato Kusanagi, I'm a cosplay photographer and the creator of Cosplanner, I want to say that the main reason why I made this app was because cosplay is something that I love for years, as a cosplay photographer I appreciate the creative work of cosplayers and I wanted to do something to help them with the process of their creations. I'm not interested in the user's info, in fact, in the privacy policy specifies that the app does not collect any information and all data is stored on the cosplayer's device only, here is the link to the privacy policy (the same link was approved by Apple and Google App Stores and can be found on the app download page of each store)

http://www.cosplanner.catokusanagi.c...acy/index.html

This app is free because I want that every cosplayer can download it (The only earnings comes from ads and some extra products that can be purchased from inside the app)

I hope my contribution to the world of cosplay can be useful for cosplayers and keep promoting this great hobby. Thanks for reading

Cato Kusanagi

The app isn't free. There's in app add, and you only have a trial version, you can't have more than 20 items or something on your cosplay list. If you want to have more, you have to pay. So no, it isn't free.


I've downloaded the app too and it totaly CHANGED the way I cosplay: I am obliged to finish everything on my cosplay if I want to check it as 100%. No more unfinished cosplays. Also, I know how much time I've spend on my cosplay and my budget part is really accurate. I waste less time than using my Excel sheets, so more time for cosplaying. And top 1, I can finaly share my progress with my friends easily to show them what's left on my work. Very cool app !
