In under 10 words, explain the problem your product/side-project solves?

Joe here, from Budibase.

Building a product with lots of features is awesome, but that product must solve a problem to be successful (IMO).

It would be great to hear how the IH community are solving problems around the world.

We're all doing great work, and potentially making someone else's life a lot easier. We should share these remedies.

So, in under 10 words, explain the problem your product/side-project solves? #ask-ih

I'll make sure to respond to each of your comments with constructive feedback.

Happy sharing.

        Thanks! Lithuanian is just a start. We started with it because it's a tight niche to conquer and low enough risk to experiment. We plan to cover other languages, of course, depending on the demand.
