The Fenix Flame Grading Program App
As some of you may know…and most of you don’t yet, we at Fenix Flame Comics have been working hard to bring a new, fresh look at grading comic books. No, we aren’t trying to be the next CGC. In fact, we are looking to work with CGC, CBCS and other third party grading companies with our soon to be released Fenix Grading Program. This has been released first for the iOs and followed by Android and Windows.
Basically speaking, the app asks you a series of about 25 questions (all multiple choice) and you literally get the grade of the book within a minute. Again, this grade doesn’t replace you having to submit to the third party grading companies, but with all our beta testing and trials and errors, we have come up with a system that is nearly spot on with those companies. No more having to guess what you might get when you send a book in or even guessing if it’s worth sending in at all. With our app, you can actually know what your going to get.
Of course, we have to put a disclaimer in that this is purely for entertainment purposes only. We cannot guarantee the grade you get on the app is the exact grade you will receive from the other companies. But, as I mentioned, we have done so many trials and errors that we are comfortable saying you won’t be disappointed with the results of you using our app.
The app comes with 10 free grades so you can try it out and see what you think, get your feet wet and get an overall feel and comfort with how to use the app. After the 10 free grades is a measly $25 per year subscription to have the app. That’s right, only $25 a YEAR. That’s less than 50 cents a week. Couch cushion money!
As more an more people sign up and use the app, we will being releasing new versions for the Android and Windows phones as well. The goal of this app is to be able to use it when you aren’t connected to the web. No wifi needed to grade. You can be in the middle of the convention and pull out your app and grade on the spot. I’ve been there when I wanted to review a book but I have no signal. Never again!
New versions of the app will also be rolling out over the year and coming years. We already have new ideas we want to implement in version 2. Convention locators, recent eBay prices and recent sales of your book in your grade and other secret plans are already in the works.
We look forward to helping you… “Take the guessing out of grading!”
