Launched the landing page for Pople to collect more ideas and build up a small following for the product before launch.
After talking to a dozen people, I found that there is a market for this product. I also identified some challenges that I will have to address before launch.
As I compiled all this information, I also had decided to build this product in public on Twitter. I started sharing my thoughts and progress there, which I will be continuing until launch.
I wanted to have the notes that I take from different machines to be synced. Using a third-party solution is not very ideas for me because it limits as to what I can do.
I thought Git would be a nice place, as it also will have some UI on the web even if development of apps become stale. When I was searching for apps that push to github for mac, I could hardly find one.
The closest I found was FSNotes which actually creates a local GIT in machine. And then I had to sync it manually to github.
And I used another app to read from that repo on my android. This was not ideal. I used it for a while, but didn't stick to it.
I always wanted to keep all my notes in one place. With so many note-taking apps out there, it was getting harder and harder. Adding to it is the problem of vendor lock-in.
Pople aims to tackle this issues effectively.
