Seems like it.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

There is no link to Kickstarter or the Play store so this seems to be a joke. Someone had plenty of spare time on his hands...

This joke is an old one, the Zomet Institute came up with this joke a few years ago.

I don't think it's a joke.

While I don't believe in this - there are many that unfortunately use their phone on Shabbos and while they probably wouldn't use this - this could potentially help them cut down on some of their Chillul Shabbos.

That is of course assuming that the things it does do something to prevent it.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Why does having a Facebook page make it any more real?

It doesn't - I was just adding that link unrelated to my post.

Although it does add a name and city...

Basic Info
Launched   September 22, 2014
Products   Shabbos App
Contact Info
Email   yossi.golstein@shabbosapp.com
Website   http://www.shabbosapp.com

Launched on September 22, 2014
In Los Angeles, California.

Anyone know this guy?

The fact that the link to the play store and the apple store don't work doesn't show anything since the app isn't 'scheduled' to be out until Feb. The only 'fishy' things are the lack of a kickstarter site and misspelling a word on the site (Please visit our Kickstarter campagin and get the Shabbos App early and for less.)
