Microtasks - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, I have some prior experience.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

It's an app using almost entirely system calls so I had to be careful that works with all the different Android versions and devices. Also, I was limited by what the system offers but this turned out to be an advantage since I was forced to keep the app simple.

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

Pocket - Awesome functionality, offline read everything!
Files Go - Beautiful design and cleaning up the device automatically,
JEFIT - The ultimate gym tracking app

How long have you been working on this app?

Almost 2 years now.

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

The casual user has a lot of to-do apps but never uses them because he forgets to open them. Microtasks, on the other hand, is always visible. Any time you check your device for new notifications, you will see your pending tasks.

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.

I think it's offering just enough feature set that doesn't overwhelm the user. Having said that, the feature set is more than enough for the needs of most users. It supports scheduling a task to appear in a future date, repeating tasks daily/weekly/monthly, coloring tasks, and much more. And all of the features are available for free. The in-app purchase is only for removing the ads.

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

We have an active feature request tracker: https://microtasks.nolt.io/. It's a small but passionate community that adds features and votes for existing ones. In the near future, I think more customization for repeating tasks (e.g. which days of the week), reordering of tasks, and adding sound/vibration to tasks.

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.)?

If you enjoy the app, don't keep if for yourself. Spread the word :)
