#7 - Introducing Ram 🐏

In our last two newsletters, we outlined our plan to split SpaceTime into two apps. Now after a couple weeks of development, we’re excited to announce Ram!

Ram is a basic to-do list app with reminder notifications, task details, and navigational directions. It’s divided into three tabs:

  1. Today - so you can focus on getting stuff done

  2. Upcoming - so you can plan ahead

  3. Completed - so you can reflect on finished work

While the foundation for Ram shares similarities with most other task management apps, our roadmap takes a sharp turn away from everything else. Here’s our next planned feature:

Have ram, sheep, and goats pop out from the corners after completing a task

So after checking off an item from your list, you might be greeted by one of these guys:

With Ram, we’re striving to create a joyful, humorous, and slightly absurd to-do app. It’s not targeted at GTD users or productivity gurus, but rather someone who is looking to manage a regular task load while enjoying their day.

Our internal mantra has been “Become the goat yoga of to-do apps” (for the uninitiated - here’s a video investigating the phenomenon that is Goat Yoga). And while we haven’t shipped the features that will bring animal therapy to Ram, check baaaack soon! 🐑 🐐 🐏

(Or if you want to see what Ram looks like today, give it a spin!)

Metrics

As we now have two apps (Ram and SpaceTime), our metrics are about to get a lot more complicated. For this week, we’ll focus on Ram. And when we re-launch SpaceTime, we’ll add back those metrics.

Ram - Daily Active Users: 10

Ram - Tasks Created/Day: 46

Highlights

We shipped the barebones version of Ram! It’s not quite our MVP (the key ingredients of humor + animal therapy are still to come), but it’s great to have the product live. The metrics are looking fairly healthy as well

Lowlights

Juggling a variety of ideas (Ram, SpaceTime, and some other exploratory bets that are entirely in the investigation stage 🔍) can be difficult on a day-to-day basis. Our focus can be splintered. That said, getting Ram out the door certainly helps with this.

Miscellaneous

💻 Last newsletter, we were thinking a lot about Zoom meetups. This week, we went to a couple of them! Being able to meet up with “internet friends” on Zoom is an awesome experience and we’re wondering why this doesn’t happen far more regularly 🤔
