MindfulGoals is now live in the app stores

Terry Xu @txu

After about a week of beta testing, MindfulGoals is now live in the Google Play store and Apple App store.

It's pretty exciting because I no longer need to worry that people may think it's vaporware. :-). I've done that too many time haha.

I am more excited that I can finally move to the promotion and marketing stage where I can explore many different distribution channels and strategies. Yes, building is fun but marketing is the ultimate challenge to creativity and my understanding of how the world works. Can't wait to see what I'll learn.

I got about 150 users in the first 36 hours of the release and already received 2 feature requests from people I didn't know before. So the feedback loop and the growth engine is started!

I hope by iteratively improving the app I can earn more trust from the users and make the app super easy-to-use.

Thanks for all the encouragement on IndieHackers. It's really been a big part of the inspiration for me!
