Hi everyone, Thanks Matthijs for posting this. My name is Shaan Singh. I'm 17 and am the CEO of Blue Cocoa. Erik is 15 and works with me on development and design. We built this app with a lot in mind: 1. How it makes you feel The color-coded timers are designed to make your time glanceable. You don't need to even see the number. Green means you have a lot of time left, yellow means halfway done, and red means almost done. If you need more time, you can just drag the wave up. While using the app though, you'll notice that dragging that wave up feels bad. You don't want to do it. That's the whole idea! 2. The future Our company is devoted to exploring artificial intelligence, and we felt that consumers deserve a taste of that. As you work on your tasks, AI algorithms will give you specific suggestions about how to be more productive. This is on a per-task basis. So as you do "math homework" for a couple days, the algorithm might say "you should move this task to 4pm because you're more productive with it around that time." We believe that Time really works for becoming more productive. You can learn more by reading Matthijs' review here: http://thenextweb.com/contributo.... Thanks! Shaan

@shaandsingh that's awesome! I remember when I started making apps back when I was 18, such a fun learning experience. (Tho they were nowhere near this level of polished) Good luck with it, the design looks brilliant

@shaandsingh Awesome work! When I was 15, I built my first iOS app on the same concept -- but without the AI and much worse looking :) Keep up the good work!

@shaandsingh this is awesome! You guys should really put the App Store badge prominently on your site. I almost didn't buy it because I didn't think it was available yet, the link is hidden as a link at the bottom of the page.

@shaandsingh guys, does it sync somehow with G-calendar?

@zuluglobe Hi! Not at the moment. We are looking into ways to import tasks.
Timur Zhabbarov@zuluglobe · Development director, Smart Course
@shaandsingh it would be great to sync with events rather than tasks — both take time in the schedule, but only events are showed as such. Good luck :) and thank you for an app!

@zuluglobe Thanks for the well wishes! That's a great idea. If we ever implement a sync/import feature, we will be sure to import events as well.

@iamkgn @shaandsingh I just checked the website and the Download button ( 1month later) is still hard to find. It should be at the top of the page, a link on each of the features as you scroll down the pag. I only looked for it because I had read the product hunt comments before I checked out the app. As a chronic procrastinator, I'm keep to try it out. Good luck! Also wondering how you came up with the price. Did you consider other pricing models? I'm not saying it is a bad price - just wondering if you considered free to get users on board and then pay to subscribe or other pricing models. Pricing for apps is such a big problem for indy developers, I'm trying to find more stories on people's experiences.

@denisetambanis @iamkgn Thanks for pointing that out! We have "add multiple download buttons" just sitting in our list of things to do. Not the best example that makers of a productivity app should be setting haha! We've been hard at work on a number of upgrades and bug fixes for Time. Tweaking the website is one of our next priorities. Great question! This should hopefully provide some insight: https://twitter.com/shaandsingh/....

Last week I found out about Time. Time is an AI Powered App for your iOS Device which beats procrastination. I tested the app for a few days while in beta and found out that the colored waves really motivated me to keep going! I would definitely recommend you trying this app to get the most out of your day! Really curious what @rrhoover thinks about this 😉

@duygu_keskek Unfortunately, we are currently focusing only on Apple devices.
Smokie@xtoq · Smokie Does Stuff
@shaandsingh @duygu_keskek Is Android on your roadmap? I see a lot of places you say that a Mac desktop app is. I completely understand that you have to focus on one of the mobile platforms for a launch, but I do hope you plan on including Android at some point. Some people cannot or prefer not to switch, and everyone deserves time tracking. Keep up the good work!
