Heads-up on planned development:
Larger vision is for measuring to be a starting point for the user gathering data about his/her vision. But then helping making that data actionable is the real story.
I’ve talked about ideas, everything from game-ifying the process, nudging for measurements, connecting to community and relevant content, there is a lot that can be done with data. Especially if we get a lot of participants and the system can start making decent predictions and put changing distance data in a larger context for everyone.
IF we make it there.
Next step, build a separate app. Just so we don’t kill our progress by running into some Apple rule and getting the measuring app updates not approved. So one app is for measuring, and you log in to store your log data.
Then the second app will be all about being able to make use of measuring results. That means downloading a second app and logging in, but it’s either that or taking chances with the measuring one - which I’d rather not do at this stage.
Vague plan for a v1 for the second app:
Probably largely illegible.
Main first starting point, making the 7 day guide available in the app. So you have the option to not depend on e-mails and spam filters and digging around your mailbox to find this or that day of the guide. It’ll still load day by day but then once you got it all, it’s in the app.
Since I removed sales pitch to the paid program a while back, feel fine about this having no ulterior motives.
A few intro screens after first download of course, to explain what to expect.
Then based on your diopters, content from endmyopia. I already have hundreds of articles tagged with diopter values, so if your’e at -5 for example, you can just pull up all relevant content for a start.
This just a starting point for eventually being able to tailor existing content much more specifically to what you may want to be reading.
Also imagine ways to bookmark things, have your own personal library with notes, etc. Taking the currently very static Website to a much more interactible sort of scenario.
Then just app links to our videos, podcast, episodes on other podcasts.
Figure out what we can do with the Wiki in app format (@NottNott ) . And at some point, with courses also. I don’t give those enough priority even that’s what actually pays the bills - and supporters who help make all this possible really should get extra attention.
All of above, v1.0 as minimalist as possible. First just to see if King Apple is ok with it.
Sharing this for feedback. If you’ve known me long enough you know how I’m scattered and not necessarily super genius with all kinds of stuff. My goal is just to keep pushing forward, make progress in some direction, make mistakes, learn things, get better.
Really appreciate everyone who is partaking in the adventures!
