Hey guys! Creator here. I started building Complice almost 2 years ago, as a system to keep me focused on what was really most important, rather than just trying to keep my inboxes empty. It's hard to summarize the journey in a few words here, but I'm happy to answer questions :) Oh and also I've given you an automatic 25% discount because I ♥ PH.

@malcolm_ocean in your screenshots refer to "pomo." What is that?
Malcolm Ocean

@mijustin short for "pomodoro", which is a 25 minute block of focused work followed by a 5 minute break. The app has a built-in timer that tracks those (and can also be used for things like "spend 5 minutes brainstorming"). ("pomodoro" is italian for "tomato" which is why you're seeing tomato icons too)

Hey all, I'm not a complice customer (staying focused isn't my problem - but I recognize that it is a big one) but I wanted to give a shout out for Malcolm. I got to know him through our email courses and have been incredibly impressed with his determination and passion for helping people become more productive. He invests a ton of time in helping his customers achieve their goals - not like most products I've seen this space that just throw tech at you and blame you when you don't succeed. The guy LIVES this stuff as you can see on the Complice blog, and his personal one, What do I mean by "lives this stuff"? Only a guy truly obsessed with personal productivity would do this (every dev will love the video): Great job, Malcolm!

Hey Malcolm! So, who is Complice for?
Malcolm Ocean
Malcolm OceanMaker@malcolm_ocean · Founder, Complice
@chris_hawk Fantastic question. It's been such a challenge niching down. There isn't an obvious single market, but so far it seems to jive well with: • people who alternate between maker schedule and manager schedule • people trying to balance multiple big priorities, like school+business (this was me!) or work+sideproject... or career+family • people who have to manage their own time (entrepreneurs, freelancers, students, creatives...)

Interesting stuff. I definitely like the idea!

@mikevardy Thanks! I just checked out Productivityist and it looks pretty cool. I think that Complice is pretty in line with your philosophy of taking action on the important stuff... at least in theory. If you get a chance to check it out I'd love to hear your feedback. Also, a question for you if you don't mind... what do you think is the biggest thing missing from most productivity systems?
