So how does the app solve the awkward moment? Am I missing something about what it does? The homepage doesn't give much away - please explain what it does / how it works โ˜•๏ธ@marketshot

@abadesi Hi Abadesi, it solves the moment when you and your colleague are staring at each other at the cash register arguing about who pays, but in a fun way! Iโ€™ve even heard from a barista that they wish they had this on a tablet at the register to speed up the process for customers. ๐Ÿ˜Š

@abadesi How it works is that you just tap the coffee cup button, it spins, and it just lets you the user know whether you are buying this round, or theyโ€™re buying. There are a couple funny sounds based on the response and wheel like action, and thatโ€™s it! Problem solved ๐Ÿ˜Šโ˜•๏ธ

@abadesi Hit the coffee cup and it will select who pays randomly with a funny response attached. I kinda love how simple the idea is.

@moenichedee thanks Monish! I tried a number of ideas like player name entry, this and that, but then said to myself โ€œjust solve the problem and make it easy!โ€ Took a few iterations before go live, still some ideas in the hopper for v2 ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thins is is a fun product that would actually be used between really good friends for kicks as opposed to actually solving a problem - I believe people would just talk it through! Love the story of how this was made though.

@ramy_alkadhi thanks, yeah it provides a good bit of entertainment for the 2-3 minutes it takes for the barista to make your coffees :)
Congrats on the launch, @marketshot! Seems to be a great app. It would be great to better explain on the website (maybe with more screenshots) how it really works. Will there be an Android version soon?

@aparkhills Thanks Andy! Definitely noted, but those really are the only three screens in the app (outside of an "info" one via popup in the corner). Thinking further though, I think it could help to show a video of the animation where the coffee cup spins and then what happens with the pop-up result / sound. Thanks for making me dive a bit deeper on product presentation possibilities! Sadly no Android version in the pipe as it was a great effort for me just to learn Swift 4 / Xcode. HOWEVER, I am thinking that this could be PERFECTLY suited for an Apple Watch application as it is a simple design. Thoughts @moenichedee / group?

If "Coffee run, let's go!" is a Trailer Park Boys reference ("Smokes, let's go!"), well done.

@justcharlie it isn't, but I'm Googling the show now! :)
