BRAINTOSS - Your thoughts straight into your inbox
Braintoss started as a Tuesday evening gig to come up with a better answer to a simple issue, how do I remind myself effectively of stuff popping up in my mind.

As the 4 of us carried iPhones it was obvious to start there. We now have a good number of very happy users in the Netherlands but would like to help more people across the planet so we really need to go Android but are a single app shop (only open on Tuesday night ;)
Help us kick it off so the cost-out of professional development and secure hosting can be shared. The pre-order of a part of the cost will give us the faith to keep developing this app for more and more users!

Risks and challenges
Risks: too small income from app to continue development - for us it is supplemental income and initial development has already been overcome.
