Hey DN!

I'm Joe, the designer over at Leef. Our app Tinker just hit the store, and I'm super excited of the privilege to share it with all of you. If there's any questions, I'm happy to answer them here!

    Whoops! Here's the link - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tinker-tweak-your-productivity/id882118545?ls=1&mt=8

    The site also has a lot more information, including a promo video - http://leef.io/tinker

    I believe the pinch-to-create gesture is a bad idea on several levels. First, it requires using two hands. What you want in a productivity app is minimal interaction and optimized input time. One-handed gestures at most. Secondly, you're overloading a familiar gesture with unfamiliar semantics, and for no good reason as far as I can tell aside from the visual gimmick.

      I agree. Almost everything about the app (idea, execution, design, website) impressed me, but this seemed like a big usability miss.

    it's cool, like it as a companion to tasks. it might be useful someday, will definitely try.

    out of curiosity, who did the promo video? the image overall looks a bit wobbly, like having an image stabilisation plugin running and distorting it here and there. too bad because otherwise the video looks really good.

    So, it's a glorified timer, right? What advantages does this have over the native timer app?

      The native timer function within clock.app is simply a timer. This is more specific, with the ability to create multiple 'timers' to start either now or in the future. The updates we have in store will hopefully differentiate it more! :)
