One of the most influential pieces of code I’ve written (that I use myself every day) is something I’ve talked about before. It sends me an email alert when I haven’t blogged or written code as often as I want to, and keeps sending alerts until I do the action.
When I broadened the software out to handle reading books it got me thinking about taking this public.
I started building a web service over the last couple of weeks to make this a more general productivity tool for anyone to use. In the coming months my partner Colum and I will launch the web site, and work on a mobile app to go with it.
A well designed mobile app might be able to attract a few loyal users.
