Deepstash – Self Improvement, Motivation & Care - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

There's 3 of us, as co-founders, that went on this journey. Dan has had previous coding experience, just not with mobile (we've had to learn quite a bit about the mobile ecosystem in general). I and Vladimir less on that. We're mostly growth & product oriented.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

I mean, there are all kinds of roadblocks in developing a product. From stability to performance and validating new features we launch. Initially, we had to pick a technology stack and go with it. We settled on React Native. As we built the product we found some limitations and we dabbed with Flutter and Native as well. But we stuck with RN going forward.

Most of the releases also have quite some work behind them on building bugs. There's no party when you just release a new build and 500 folks can't tap on anything while on dark mode.

The interviewee, Cristian Mezei, is the co-founder of Deepstash. He is an experienced entrepreneur, having founded various businesses from the time he was in high-school. He brings in 18 yrs of marketing experience, being part of several successful regional agencies. Recognized as one of the SEO experts in the region after founding Seopedia, a community for SEO specialists in the mid-2000s.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

Some of the apps I use daily are Quora, Reddit & Medium. Each has its own purpose for my knowledge-hungry daily runs. But you can find true gems there. Quora is also pretty good with daily digest emails and they nailed down on interests quite well.

How long have you been working on this app?

We have just a year and a bit under our belt. We publicly launched our iOS & Android apps in May last year. MVP more or less. More minimum than viable :-)

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

Deepstash is a hub where you discover, consume, share, and create knowledge. Users can explore thousands of ideas on productivity, business, lifestyle, love, and more.

It was born to empower everyone to grow themselves. We want to transform how people interact with information & knowledge by making it fast, easy & fun.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

We truly believe that working with information is a big problem nowadays. It's too much (so little time), too long (we need shorter and faster formats) and too basic (taking notes is hard)

Our aim is to unbundle information. Ideas, today, come in bundles (books, articles, movies, etc). Ideas make us smart individuals and bring us together as a group. However, ideas are non-trivial to spot, hard to capture & organize! It requires a lot of discipline & willpower to create them and the process uses analog-like tools (note-taking, read it later or curation apps).

In Deepstash, ideas are separated from the source & can be manipulated independently. They are automatically organized.

Our idea format is fast, condensed, and actionable. You'll love it.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

We're working on social features now. Users will be able to collaborate, share, publish, get profiles, and all the good stuff. Automated idea extraction is also in our roadmap. An easy, seamless way to jumpstart idea creation for most users.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Just get in touch with us and share your thoughts. Feedback is invaluable for us and even though we have tens of thousands of reviews and a lot of emails every day, we get to each of them. It's how we started and how we got here. Users matter to us and their experience teaches us a lot on how to build a better product.
