Now that Audacity is well and truly ‘out there’ and with users in dozens of countries (a topic for a future blog), we are starting to think about what geeks call ‘Localisation’. Translation, to the rest of us.
The Audacity app is the world’s most beautiful To Do List app and the world’s most powerful To Do List app. That’s a bold statement but what does it mean? What is a To Do List app? What makes it beautiful? How is it powerful?
So here I am, arrogantly assuming that with Audacity my team and I have built a better To-Do List / Task system. Surely the world will “beat a path to our door”? And surely investors will drive their Porsches and Teslas to our car park?
Well, the Audacity app has been launched and the hard efforts of the team have been celebrated with pizza, bubbles and dancing! Following this, I can now fully embrace the merits of Audacity and plan my next 7 days. Let’s see if I can make planning a pleasure!
A new project, like a newborn babe, needs a name. I take a fairly conventional approach to this task – lots of candidate words, plentiful marker pen ink on dead trees (mostly recycled paper, soon to be recycled again, like most of the ideas), and a few Post-its.
When the news had sunk in that Wunderlist would be ‘retired’ (like the much-loved Sunrise) by Microsoft, I initially started to ‘play the field’ again, and experimented with alternative Apps.
