Notes applications are nothing new. However, LifeBoard, Tectra’s latest and greatest Android app, despite having many of the core fundamentals of a notes app, is truly unique!
When I was creating LifeBoard, I realized that I would have to do a few things differently if I wanted my app to stand out. As a result, I shifted gears and decided to make LifeBoard less of a notes application, and more of a digital bulletin board.
In order to make this idea work, I knew I'd have to set some limitations for the app. However, I wanted to be sure that they made sense.
When creating LifeBoard, I wanted to keep clutter at a minimum. As a result, being able to replace buttons with gestures made a lot of sense. These include:
LifeBoard is my first app that I'm charging for, coming in at $0.99. After using it myself, I must say, it's genuinely a really handy tool! It's a new take on an old idea.
I'm really happy with how LifeBoard has turned out! I could go on for ages about every little thing, but I think I've covered most the basics.
I have a lot of exciting things planned for LifeBoard. In fact, I'm already working on a new update for it! If things go as planned, you should be able to not only set links, but also phone numbers, email addresses, and maybe even more!
Even if you don't understand LifeBoard after this post, I'd encourage you to check it out! After all, the best way to understand something is to experience it.
Overall, writing LifeBoard has been a really fun challenge, and I look forward to working on it some more soon!
Anyway, thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy LifeBoard!
