On Tuesday, September 17, 2019, our "Go4 USA" mobile app was officially retired. We wish to THANK all Consumers, Manufacturers and Retailers who believed in us, but the support was not sufficient to sustain our efforts going forward.
Our mission started in late 2011, but our motivation to get involved in the "Made in America" Community was stirred years earlier with our own shopping frustrations trying to find American-made products. We wanted to create a mobile solution to help Consumers find - and help others find - products proudly bearing the "Made in USA" label, so we invested 2 man years to learn the tools and technologies necessary to move from the desktop solution environment to the world of mobile devices.
Our research discovered there were many websites with directories of American Manufacturers grouped into categories, showing a Company's logo, address, phone number and biographical information, and that take a visitor to a firm's online presence. There were a variety of "Made in America" eCommerce sites listing or selling American-made products, but most carried a limited selection. A hand-full of "Made in USA" focused mobile apps existed in 2010 - 2011, but most were not well-maintained or just contained static listings of Manufacturers.
What are the American-made Products sold in our area? Who are the Retailers that sell them and which is closest to our location? Can we learn who the Manufacturer is and are their products sold online? How can we let others know about "Made in USA" Products that we find? These were our burning questions, so..."Go4 USA" was born on December 11, 2012.
Mobile solution to find, shop, and share "MADE IN THE USA" Products, Manufacturers and Retailers...let's save and create American jobs!
Smartphones have Internet access, GPS, maps, and cameras, and are in the hands of millions of Consumers. When paired with a live online database, users have a mobile solution to find and share the location of American-made Products at Retailers, both local and online. Users can share their favorite Products, Manufacturers, and Retailers with their Family, Friends & Followers via their Social Networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and more) easily with just one finger!
The larger the community of Consumers that can easily find American-made Products, the more demand there will be for products to be "Made in America". Retailers who sell them will re-order more frequently, and Manufacturers who make them will retain and hire more workers to keep up with the increased demand. Retailers will experience the benefit of stocking more "Made in USA" goods, and Manufacturers will see the benefit of keeping or bringing jobs back home.
"Go4 USA" version 1.0 was released on the App Store on December 11, 2012.
Version 3.0.0 was released February 9, 2019 for iOS.
Version 3.2.1 was the final release - available until September 17, 2019 - before being retired.
