I wrote a 'scratch-your-own-itch' app intending to take the normal startup path, but the Lord showed me instead to use it to glorify His name and to advance the kingdom by combining a useful app with ad banners showing amazing testimonies of the miracles and healings He has done.
What it does
Helps with grocery list making and grocery shopping. Arranges shopping list to match actual aisles of the store you shop at. (Not conceptual aisles, real aisles!)
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Being able to operate on all device sizes. Right now, the tablet/desktop experience are decent, but the mobile needs a lot ot work.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Just finished a first-cut at an Alexa voice interface.
What I learned
New technololgies like Backbone and Bootstrap. The many challenges and pitfalls of startups.
What's next for AisleQ
Getting beta-users to give feedback. Improving the mobile experience. Using PhoneGap to package app for mobile.
