Hi everyone, πŸ‘‹ Today I'm excited to launch Pi with the PH community! This is a project I've been working on day and night for the last couple of months and is now officially ready for the world. Pi was crafted to solve a common issue with a simple and effective solution. I noticed a lot of my "productivity" throughout the day was very inefficient and pretty hectic. I was constantly switching between browser tabs, always had 4-5 desktop spaces open and struggled to manage multiple projects/ideas between all of my tools and screens. I had more of my desktop dedicated to "productivity" than actual work. I knew I couldn't be the only one with this issue. There wasn't any one tool that could address all of my problems and the countless tools I came across either required a subscription πŸ™„ or were complete overkill. In the event I put together all of these tools I would be stuck paying never ending set of bills πŸ’° forever and my original issue of managing data between tools still wouldn't be solved. With no luck in sight I set out to build a simple, fast and effective productivity hub. So I created Pi. Replace your countless desktop spaces and windows with a single hub for all of your daily tasks. Pi offers an always accessible set of minimalist apps (pods) managed in one space. 13 pods for what you actually do everyday. No feature bloat. The global hotkey saves you from what I call the scroll of death πŸ’€. Having so many tabs and windows open you're left scrolling and scrolling until you scroll onto a random Youtube video or article. 45 minutes later you've gone down an endless spiral of videos and links but have got absolutely nothing done 🀦. We all do it but now those days are over. Now no matter where you are you can toggle Pi and instantly get access to whatever list, calendar, pinboard, etc. that you need. βœ… Global hotkey (works no matter what the active application is even in full screen mode) βœ… Quick access (hotkey and menu bar) βœ… Automatic saving (never lose anything) βœ… Collections for multiple projects/ideas βœ… Lightweight and fast βœ… Optimized for performance πŸ’ͺ (built with Swift + Xcode, no electron) βœ… Easy drag and drop βœ… Easy import and export βœ… Quick switch between collections βœ… No more scroll of death πŸ’€ βœ… Cool customizations (rain 🌧️, themes 🎨, emojis πŸŽ‰) βœ… Mobile app (coming soon) This launch is only the beginning. I have tons of updates, features and functionality planned in the roadmap. With the help and support of users we can make Pi the perfect productivity powerhouse it has the potential to be. Let me know what you think, I'd love to hear all of your feedback! *Pi is launching with a 35% off discount! Thanks hunters!

Hey @noagld, What was most difficult thing you ran into when building this app?

@jacqvon Hi Jacqueline. Overall I would say my biggest hurdle while building Pi was finding a good balance between including enough features for enhancing a user's daily proficiency while making each pod simple enough for users to use at first glance. I didn't want to include too little functionality where users would feel they were using an incomplete tool but also wanted to avoid overwhelming users with too many options. Ultimately I iterated until I found a sweet spot between effectiveness and simplicity. Anything that couldn't be used at least once a day was either removed or replaced with a more straightforward implementation. As far as development the pad pod was definitely one of the more challenging parts of this project.

@rmtux yes macOS only for now. The next platform release would be iOS. Linux version is a possibility but no plans at the moment.
@noagld Minimal one time payment productivity set of tools is a great idea.. All the best with that.

Is there a way to keep the content in sync with other Macs? Does Pi integrate with Apple services, such as calendars or contacts?

@finariel cloud sync will be added soon to sync everything between your other Macs (and your iOS devices once the app is released). Integrations with a host of different services, including Apple apps, are all on the roadmap
