Audiograms are becoming more and more popular in marketing but are quite time consuming to make. I wanted to build a service that lets you converting your audio files into eye catching video in a matter of minutes.

January 4, 2021 Launched API!

The Textreel API is now ready to use!

https://textreel.com/developers

From when I first launched quite a few users asked me if I had any plans to add an API so they could integrate it into their application.

I've never built an API before so there was a lot to learn but I'm pleased with how it's turned out. I put a lot of time into making sure the documentation was simple and easy to follow as well as providing lots of helpful code samples to copy and paste.

There's nothing worse than working with a poorly documented API (cough PayPal)

Give it a try and let me know your thoughts!

Much love

September 28, 2020 Made my first sale!

Today I acquired my first sale! After 5 years of trying and failing with various side projects it feels great to get my first paying customer. It makes all the hard work worth it and also validates the business idea.

All of the feedback has been great so far so here's too the next sale!

If you keep working hard, learn from mistakes and stay positive you can find success.

September 24, 2020 Finished MVP

After about 2 months I've finished building the MVP for textreel. I mainly worked on this in the evenings but managed to make pretty good progress.

In the past I've spent too long working on projects only to find they were doomed to fail so my goal was to get the MVP ready as soon as possible.

I'm now going to launch on Product Hunt and Hacker News in the hopes of getting some feedback and market validation.

July 2020 Starting work on textreel

Over the past few months I've noticed audiograms being used more and more for marketing material. I've always thought they're pretty neat but didn't have to skills to make them myself.

That's when I came up with the idea of automating them and textreel was born.

The idea is that users will upload their audio files and the textreel will convert this into an eye catching video.
