Well I’m just tickled that I know someone who has published an iPhone app! Tim Mackinnon, my good friend who I used to work with at OTI Ottawa and OTI London, has published an app called ReDo List. If I had an iPhone, I’d buy this app, it looks really useful. The blurb says:
ReDo is an iPhone application that allows you to create checklists of items that you can keep and reuse over again.
- Have you ever gone on holiday and found that you forgot to pack your sunglasses?
- Have you started a presentation and discovered that you left your laser pointer at home?
ReDo is perfect for maintaining useful lists of actions so you don’t forget to complete them. Simply select an existing list or create a new list, and then tick off items as your prepare for your event. You can use ReDo as a normal to do list, but unlike todo applications, when you have completed your list you don’t throw it away, you keep it to use again the next time.
And, although he’s only released it May 1, he’s actually making a few pounds off it (well, enough for a few pints down at the pub, and really, isn’t that what it’s all about anyway?).
Will the iPhone re-invigorate the independent software author? Check out Tim’s app and help this cottage industry!
