Hello PH community, My name is Hicham, and I’m one of the makers of Startup Patterns. We created Startup Patterns to provide all startup founders with a collection of curated and practical lessons from the best books, blogs and talks. Our vision is to build the biggest go-to library of bite-sized knowledge about all the themes involved in the journey of building and growing startups, as we believe founders today not only need easier access to knowledge but also faster learning process to spend more time on the execution and getting things done. Some of the featured authors that inspire our lessons are @paulg, @sgblank, @fredwilson and many more. Soon enough, we envision to make it an open platform to put the spotlight on the lessons and the stories of experienced founders to help early-stage founders get on the track and benefit from the typical setbacks and hacks people usually come across in the process of building and growing startups. (So, if you’re an experienced founder, check out our landing page and share with us your experience - You might be among the first featured founders ! ) That’s it! Truly appreciate if you guys can share with us your thoughts and suggestions.

@hicham Is it available for Android?
Hicham Amine@hicham_amine · Head of Growth, Hidden Founders
@niteshmishra_ Hello, for now we are only available on iOS, but we surely plan to launch on Android as one of our goals in the near future.

@hicham_amine when I share a card on TWitter it does incl any text with ur app handle or some text from the card. It's just blank. I guess it will help u get more traction if u guys fix this. Reach out to me on Twitter if u need more details @rizzisam
Zakaria Braksa@nsbraksa · hiddenfounders.com
@rizzisam @hicham_amine I totally agree! that's definitely something that we were planning to address through the upcoming app updates (among other things). But your feedback surely will give it a bump in terms of priority!

@hicham_amine @paulg @sgblank @fredwilson This being a native app is an overkill, a web app would have have been sufficient.

@icyflame @paulg @sgblank @fredwilson Hey! Thans for the feedback. It surely is! But a native app allows the user the control the learning experience by choosing when to receive his little pills of knowledge and also provides the experience of learning in a Tinder-like swipe, which apparently, lot of users liked. Why do you think a web app would have been sufficient especially when there are lot of blogs and newsletters out there about Startup knowledge?

@hicham_amine @paulg @sgblank @fredwilson Why no web version, what's the reason for this being an app and no android version? (not complaining)

@paul_s_kemp Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. We are trying to make it a useful product for all Startup Founders, and soon enough having it as an open platform for people to share their startup lessons with early-stage founders. Any authors do you want to see in our next lessons ?
Maxime Pico@maximepico · Conversion optimisation consultant
Always a pleasure to try what you guys build! A few things I didn't understand while exploring the app: - it wasn't obvious where to find the "starred" items at first — though it's true I eventually found it... - I almost thought the two or three first cards were identical because they had the same title and the same first words - it was weird when the texted referred to something on the next cards because it wasn't obvious the cards were into a series One way to fix the two last points at once is to have numbers at the end of the title to show that they are part of a series. Like "title A (1/2)" and the next card is "title A (2/2)" Voilà ! Can't wait to read what's next, Maxime PS: did you think of "partnering" with a website that summarises books, like koober.com in France for instance?

@maximepico we are always excited about your feedback. On point and very helpful. Duly noted (straight to our Trello backlog). Partnerships are more than welcome, in fact this is an open invitation to the community: if you guys are having something in mind around Startup Patterns would love to hear it (reachable at y@hiddenfounders.com). Any favorite authors Maxime? we are trying this time to dig deep and mix-up famous gurus with less known experienced founders, would love to get some suggestions.

@maximepico Agree on the cards in a series - took me a sec as well. The other thing that feels a bit weird is when you are on card 3/3 for example, sharing would be odd as others don't have the context of the previous cards that you have. Not quite sure what you could do about that immediately...
