Whether you are an indecisive person, or someone who is very forthright in expressing what you would like to do, or how you think things should be done, there are times when it makes sense to gauge opinion and get input from other people.
From deciding where you should go for dinner, to choosing between two different holiday destinations, Deci is a free app for Android users that makes it easy to canvass opinion and hold a quick poll.
This one is for the sports fans. I’m an avid NY Yankees fan and a big NY Giants fan, but I’ll go to any baseball or football game that’s offered to me; it’s also a personal goal of mine to visit all of the Major League Baseball (MLB) stadiums in my lifetime. It’s always nice to have a resource to help you figure out how good your seats are (I recently ran into this problem when buying tickets to a Broadway show) as I am willing to pay a little extra if it means a better view.
While (for MLB sites anyway), you can use the team’s official website to get a shot from the section you’re sitting in, these photos are designed as a marketing tool. What you want is to see how a fan sees it — that’s where a View From My Seat comes in.
As a web developer/programmer/nerd, this is a statement I get a lot: “Hey Joe, you know what would be cool? An app that [insert something here].” Sometimes I’ll get a justification that it “shouldn’t be too hard to do” (they’d probably feel differently if they were programming it), or more commonly I’d get, “I think a lot of people would use this.” That’s how a lot of great ideas get started: someone has a want or need. On the other hand, sometimes a developer wants to take on a project, but doesn’t have an idea to run with. Need An App aims to bring these two groups of people together.
Need An App is a pretty simple app with one purpose: get app ideas from people. Once you use the app to submit an idea, “a team of Android developers will continuously evaluate the proposals … and your desired app may be realized!!” This seems pretty cool.
