Finished v1.0 of Touch Bar To Do

Mike Radd Lin @IndieHacker34

First milestone reached when I finally completed v1.0 of Touch Bar To do. I spent nights and weekends on this as a side project and wanted to see how people reacted to it. It's my first attempt at building and selling a product so I welcome your feedback as I go into my journey as an indie hacker.

I know what you're thinking...."not another To Do List!" - I'm sure all aspiring developers have thought about creating the perfect "To Do List" at some point in their careers. I'm no different....perhaps naive but I always thought that the MacBook's Touch Bar was grossly underutilized. Touch Bar To Do aims to provide an intuitive way to access your task list any time via your MacBook's Touch Bar. It also combines the Pomodoro Technique to boost your productivity.

I coded the entier app using Swift and am using GumRoad to handle the payment processing. I am truly excited to finally reach a milestone and look forward to any feedback.
