Actually this was the wrong link. And I can't seem to edit it. My idea was to understand if this is indeed needed by anybody, and I had a small form for that, to understand what people need / or are looking for.

I'm the main developer behind this app. I built this app primarily because of my needs (it sits right in my existing daily workflow), but I've been thinking if this app might be useful for others as well. A lot of this was inspired by my own problems and then a discussion about "Rabbit hole" syndrome in this thread - http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=5197155

It would be really nice to know the viewpoint of fellow HNers about their existing todo apps and point of views on what would be their perfect todo app.

Just thinking out loud here - Is it possible for you to determine whether the buyer and seller were related somehow ?

-----


Really wild point. So malicious, but i guess in the same sense that would be a "clever" way to "pay yourself". The seller is someone we have worked with before and has multiple listings with Apptopia (and has had them for a few months now). They also have separate payment profiles. So if they are the same, they have gone through great lengths to hide it...

Still good to keep an eye on. Thanks for making me think through it.

yep..

Yes if you call "not doing anything worthwhile and just playing around the whole day" as bragging, then I'll brag a bit too :)

But..agree with your observation. Humans stay humans..!

At 14, I was busy playing soccer. I didn't get to computers and coding till I was 17-18, when my brother bought a PC. So jealous of you guys who build such awesome stuff at this age ! Way to go..!

A radical change is not gonna happen with any fire or so that you mention. The path to achieve it is what Mr. Kejriwal is doing right now, and the time to get there will be the next decade or so. You think a street revolution is gonna help India right now, or a structured approach with a long-term vision..

The problem is that out of the 3 main bodies in any country - politicians, bureaucrats, and the armed forces - India has always had a nexus amongst the first two. Although this is much better than politicians+armed forces, it still is a problem. I won't go so far to say that we are descending into a Banana republic as yet; but if the alarming rate at which income inequality is growing right now is not checked, then yes that day wont be far.

India's Police system and the laws such as Criminal Procedure Laws were formulated by British. The objective was to keep citizens completely depended on goodwill of police and politicians to be free and safe. The exact same laws have continued.

duiker101 yes..that's the general idea. But the mobile app world is so chaotic these days, that it takes a long time to be found. WOM is a good strategy, but focussing on finding the competitors weakness might take away your focus away from the product itself ??

-----


You should not try to focus away from the product, if that is what you really want, but each time someone says "I use x but I really wished it had y feature" it can be great opportunity to show yourself off and acquire a new client if your product is good enough. You are right anyway, the App scene is a mess and it's hard to reach and stay on top, but not impossible. A great example can be the reddit applications, there are many but as they add new features people change opinion and change when they see more and more people switch.

Absolutely loved the title and the thoughts. Pleasant change from all the "How we hacked into YC" posts flooding HN every now and then.
