  • Making Jotter a better GTD collection app

    Hi all,

    My name is Jordan, I write phone apps with my brother while I travel, under the name Mijoro. We just finished our first app, a simple reminder tool called Jotter which is available on Android and Palm's WebOS, for free.

    Neither my brother nor I are GTD'ers. We were just making an app that sets up reminders as simply as possible (Jot a note down, press enter and have the note emailed to you for later) but, once we released it, we found several of our 5-star reviews came from people who used it with GTD. Now we'd like to add some features that make it a better tool for GTD'ers, but we're not familiar enough. We don't know how.

    That's why I'm turning to you. I'm reading the book on GTD now, but even if I were well read, I wouldn't be familiar with the in's and out's of using GTD as you all are.

    I'd like to pick your brain for how we might improve Jotter, specifically for GTD users, and what the community thinks/feels about Jotter as it is. We're aiming for the simplest possible reminder application, and will try to add any worthwhile features in a way that keeps the UI clean and maintains that goal.

    Thank you for your time spent reading this, and if you try out our app. Hopefully, with insight from you all, Mijoro will be able to turn out a special GTD version of Jotter that will be the best mobile collection tool you can use.

    Cheers,

    Hi Jordan,

    Just tried out your app on the Webos platform. Very cool! I think it will be great tool to send notes to my email as reminders.
    Thanks,

      Thanks Ellen, I'm glad you like it. Is there anything you'd like to see changed that would make it better? If you found it useful, please remember to rate it!

        The only thing I'm not sure about, when sending a message that's a little longer it shows up in the subject line. Is that correct? There's no way to set it up to be in the message area of the email.
        Thanks,
        Ellen

          We're working on moving the server from our own machines into google's app engine. Once we do that, messages will fill into the subject line up to a certain length, then roll over into the message body, so longer messages will be handled correctly.

          We originally built jotter for very short messages, and are trying to catch up to the way people are actually using it.

          Thanks, though, for letting me know that it's something that we should really get a hussle on to implement.

            I'll be looking forward to that. I think your app has great potential and I'm enjoying using it. I'll make sure to rate it.
