Recently, I came up with an idea for a task management app that solves a unique problem in my life. After sharing my ideas on Reddit, I learned that I am not the only one who would be interested in an app like this. As much as I love this blog, I realize that there will never come a time where I can start this app without making some kind of mess. By starting this, I’ll unfortunately have no time left for this blog. For the next 2 months, I’m going to pursue this app idea just to see how feasible it is for me to pull off. I’ve decided to document my journey on my dead Twitter account. I’ll also post an update here sometime in January 2019 to let you all know how it is going.
This was the outline of the idea that I posted to Reddit:
I’m looking into developing a task management app that I seem to have not seen before. You’ll give it information like this:
- The title of the task
- How many hours you think it’ll take to complete the task
- How many days until your tasks due date
- How many hours you believe you have to work on the tasks in the days before the due date
Then it tries to recommend a schedule to you. For example, it could say: “On Monday, you should work 2 hours on Task A and 1 hour on Task B so that you can complete Task A to 20% completion and Task B to 40% completion.” but with pictures instead of words because words are awkward.
Thanks for all your support. It’s been fun! Stay saucy my friends 😎
