[Announce] Pay the Piper: Where todos fight distractions!
Apologies if you receive this more than once, I think I sent it the first time from the wrong email address. -- Mike
Do you have trouble remembering to look at your to do list? Ever turn on your computer to accomplish some small task, only to emerge hours later with the task still unfinished but a greater appreciation for cats than you ever dreamed possible? Do you ever wish you could just get a reminder to call the dentist BEFORE you started looking at pictures of your ex on Facebook?
If this sounds like you, then it's time to Pay the Piper!
Pay the Piper protects you
from your own bad habits by keeping you away from sites you know are distracting and focusing you back on your task list. Like a web blocker, you decide what sites are distractions to you, and Pay the Piper prevents you from viewing them. Unlike those other blockers, Pay the Piper replaces the distraction with a task from your task list. Completing any of your tasks grants you a few minutes to browse the distracting site. Hey, you've earned it!
Your tasks can be stored in one of two ways: Google Chrome Sync, in which case they'll be available in all your logged-in Chrome browsers, or as a text file in Dropbox. Pay the Piper was built to work with the todo.txt Android and iOS apps so if you alrea
dy have one of those you'll find all your tasks stay completely in sync.
All feedback welcome!
