Indonesian fan club-based social networking platform Kincir today launched a mobile app version of its site for Android.

The mobile app includes push notification so users can get quick updates from their idols, and promises more seamless interaction between idols and their fans.

The app — and Kincir’s revamped website — also allows users to upload up to five photos, and videos as large as 50MB, related to their idols.

“Our members’ needs are a trigger for us to keep on improving. We want Kincir to become a platform for fans to express themselves and to interact closely with their idols, and vice versa. In the future, we hope that all celebrities and public figures in Indonesia will have their own page on Kincir,” said Giring Ganesha, CEO and Co-Founder of Kincir.

He said the updates were based on routine surveys among Kincir users.

Kincir is a social networking platform where users can interact with fellow fans and their favourite celebrities.

It includes features such as Shout — similar to a status message — that fans can tag their idols in, a LiveChat feature with idols and a Weekly Quiz where fans can win official merchandise.

The startup also occasionally hosts offline events with users.

Since its launch in 2013, Kincir has gained 210,000 users, with 279 local and international artists signing up for an official page. It aims to grow its user base further by launching the app on iOS and Windows platforms soon.

The West Jakarta-based startup is a subsidiary of Gajah Merah Terbang which is a part of Merah Putih Incubator, a GDP Ventures portfolio company.
