How a weekend app made it to the Top of App Store Australia

Funny story, or may be a cool one, I decided to see how App Store works and if I can get something useful created over the weekend. After few hours of research I decided to create a simple unit converter and calculator app.

Now I had to choose if I go completely native and just create for iOS or chose a technology like Ionic Native to create an app which is native but can be cross compiled for iOS and Android. After looking at the Ionic API, it was clear that I am going to use Ionic for the test app.

Over the weekend I managed to create something useful Continue Reading →

Let’s talk about collaborative consumption

Not economy, but consumption. Collaborative consumption encompasses collaborative or sharing economy. Collaborative consumption is nothing new, its been around since the humankind developed cognitive skills and understood the importance of communicating and helping others. That was the only way to survive.

Today, after the ages of mass consumption and waste we have somehow lost the meaning of a product. It’s not about ownership but meaning. Any product (finished, material, tools or anything) has a meaning if you use it or if it has a sentimental value.

Anything which might not be that important or meaningful for us might have great potential for someone else.

At towardmay, we try to encourage members to share and give away things which other creators might benefit from. Something very small but we hope it helps someone, somewhere.
