I've got a very simple problem I want to solve: I want to get updates on news content that matters, but on my own terms.
I dislike feed readers. They're Yet Another App To Install, and are weak in the areas of searching and categorisation. So I built a tool to get updates sent to your inbox in (relative) real time instead. It makes sense for me, as the Inbox is already a place of work and has industrial strength tools for organisation.
But on a personal level? I just love the idea of building something useful for myself and sharing it with the world. Releasing a simple product that executes well on a pain point is something I've always been wanting to do. Well, here it is!
