Yeah, it's unfortunate that many people have been burned by other Kickstarters and ruined people's expectations. We will not be one of those :)
Thanks Jake. No doubt, there are cheaper options out there. I wanted to create a premium product that feels in line with the quality of my Apple products. But maybe down the road we can offer a less expensive version. Thanks for the feedback!
100%. I've been designing and shipping products for 8 years so I'm no stranger to that amount of work this takes. We've shipped tens of thousands of product to over 65 countries and know this is a giant task. You can read more about my story here: http://ugmonk.com/about
Yeah I wish international shipping was cheaper but these are quite heavy and there's no cheap way to ship. Maybe we'll have a retailer in Australia that carries Gather someday :)
Thanks Maciej! Yes, I already have some other ideas for expansions and new modules. Those will come after the Kickstarter phase, but the possibilities are endless :)
Jeff (@ugmonk) here. Happy to answer any questions about Gather :)
Thanks for post!
Exactly. We have so many options that it's easy to get caught up in the tools rather than the actual workflow of capturing and executing. Having the right tools helps though :)
Thanks Marc! Appreciate the kind words. It really is amazing how freeing it can be to write things down (even if they don't go anywhere) which frees up that mental space. It seems silly to write obvious "big" things down, but I find that I'm able to process them differently if I simply capture in the moment and come back to them later.
Thanks Max. Would love to hear other peoples "tricks" for staying inspired or how they capture ideas as well. Always interesting to see how people think & work.
I've actually never heard of Spently until now, but looks interesting. Klaviyo give us super detailed analytics for each action of each user so we're happy with it for now.
