Hi all!
Awesome to be here, ready to read / discuss your comments!

A little about how it all started :)

Around 8 months ago, I faced a problem while working on-the-go. I received an email on my iPhone where I had to check my availability and share a file quickly before replying. And I did like we all do, switch switch switch...betweens apps. It felt unproductive. It didn’t work.

So, at first, we decided to create our own messaging app with @_btsta where people could share all their things but it didn't feel right. We kept thinking about it until Apple launched their keyboard API. Only then, it started to make sense: how about drawing an horizontal line across apps we use everyday? We then reached out to @fgojalvo and @xfarrarons, two good friends, and rolled out a first “teaser” to recruit beta testers. Since then, we’ve iterated with/for users and we will keep doing this.

Now, it’s all about your feedback! We'd love to hear your guys feedback on our product!

As a beta tester, this was a brilliant app and it worked flawlessly. The calendar integration and the Instagram feed was a big hit for me.

This is a great concept and is aimed at a real need. I've been trying out Thingthing for about a week; it was easy to set up and it's awesome to use. My only challenge is remembering to switch to it; excited for a full text keyboard to be part of the experience. Olivier and Jose — what else is on your roadmap?

ThingThing is great. It gets right at the fingertips (literally!) of where people are working and needing smart content. Switching between apps is a pain all of us share. ClipCard was headed this way so I'm thrilled to see a good step in the right direction from fellow Canadians!
