Hey, John. Congrats on the launch and still 1st place of the day 🤟🏼. Have a look on RealtimeBoard that is on related products to yours - they have a great traction. Good luck!

@roman_eaton Thanks Roman! I'm a huge productivity tool consumer and so I did take a look at RealtimeBoard and also Milanote before developing this. They both have great products but I wanted to make something in the middle. After adding some tools like free drawing and collaboration, hopefully it'll live up to that vision!

Congrats on launching! Any plans to develop a mobile app or introduce premium paid for features? @john_bae

@abadesi Hey Abadesi! I realize the app would be very limited without a mobile app to accompany it and so it's definitely in my agenda. I'm also thinking about adding some premium paid features but I'll hold off on that until I can get the free version nice and cozy :)

Great way to jot down a lot of things going on throughout the day. Although I'm not sure that my RyeBoard might eventually get a bit cluttered and I might start losing stuff. But I'll stick around to see what kind of new features get added.

Pros:

Really clean, easy to use. Looking forward to see what else is in store.

Cons:

Only two widgets in the menu bar at the moment.

Congrats, John! Looks cool, but why is it better than using something like InVision Freehand?

@diegonlly Hey Diego. I'm afraid I'm not familiar with InVision Freehand but I just took a look at it and wow, it looks awesome! Ryeboard is a work in progress that is meant to be more of a general tool rather than a specialized one such as InVision Freehand. It admittedly lacks a lot of features to differentiate itself from competitors right now but it's only been 2 months since I started developing it. Although Ryeboard is a side-project of mine, I'm spending (and will continue to spend!) lot's of time ramping up it's capabilities.

I could definitely see myself using this! Great work.

Pros:

Onboarding was super-quick and easy to understand

Lovely interface and homepage

Cons:

Could really use a dark mode

No horizontal movement, only vertical?

Needs more post types.

Hey Sergio, could you further explain the only vertical movement problem? It's supposed to support a board 5000px by 5000px and allow horizontal scrolling. Hmmm... But other then that a dark mode sounds awesome! Let me add it on the to-do list :)
