When I work on a task, I usually need 3 things - a quick list of nested todos, a list of links related to my task, and an area to scribble notes
I'm a big fan of macOS menu bar apps and shortcuts, so I decided to combine those two and build FocusedTask.
After just 2 days of coding, I was able to start using it.
The hardest part of the app was to get a paid Apple developer account (they didn't like my Bulgarian debit card) and making the notarizing to work. 🤷♂️
I still use Bear and Todoist for other parts of my workflow.
I launched the app on Product Hunt with moderate success.
According to my logs, currently, 29 people use the app daily, which makes me very happy 😁
I got a couple of contributions to it:
I have given a couple of talks about the code structure of Focused Task
I don't have any grandiose plans for FocusedTask. It is just a small tool I built for myself. I learned a lot while making it.
I'm very happy that other people use it too.
It is a win in my book. 🤩
