Tally Count App

An online-only tally counting app

  • View Commentary

    What started as a quick weekend project has now become the de facto standard for tally counting with thousands of users. My goal was to make something beautiful, customizable, and useful in a number of different ways. After it gained traction I added some premium features such as real time counts across devices and history statistics.

Healthy Rivalry

Allow users to compete over the healthy goals they have set

  • View Commentary

    This evolved out of an older project I worked on called Healthy Challenge. The idea was to use streaks and stats to motivate you to accomplish your goals. The issue I ran into was notifications, this was simply a web application and really needed to be a native app in order to have better user notifications.

Archive Control

Help WordPress site builders control lists of content

  • View Commentary

    I thought of this idea a long time ago but didn't have the development chops to make it. The idea returned to me when I needed it yet again and I finished it in a few days. It allows the site builder to define characteristics of lists of content, like custom headlines, descriptions before and after, order, pagination, and a bunch more handy stuff.

Agency Search

Create the definitive listing of creative agencies in Minneapolis.

    This was my attempt to create a listing site where I would put up a list of agencies, allow them to be filtered using a variety of tags, and allow interested parties to feature their agency at the top with a logo. It's still a work in progress and I need to continue adding agencies and new cities.
