I have never understood why the "dots-on-a-day" visual language became popular for month view.
Hi @jasonology, thanks for the feedback.
I personally agree with you and don't find it that helpful because I have several items in my calendar for every single day of the year so a day view makes more sense to me.
However some of our very early testers were used to using a month view to see if they had something on a specific day or not. For their use case that dot is very useful and I feel like it doesn't disturb people like you and me.
“How it works” shouldn't normally have a question mark at the end. If you want one, you could change to text to “How does it work?”
Why Google auth only?
@jasonology It was just easier than handling it ourselves to start off. What are your thoughts on it?
@jasonology

Thanks for the question. We’ve just downloaded the app and played around with it.

I think the premise behind the app shares a lot of similarities with Bento Cam - it allows you to send photos quickly to different cloud services. It is more similar to IFTTT’s DO cam app than ours, though, as the focus is very much on single purpose actions (it seems).

Bento Cam could in theory replace the iOS native Camera and Photos apps since you take photos (single & multiple) and access them again through our app, regardless of where they are stored - so you never have to leave the app. Rather than focusing on single purpose actions, we have users create collections (that can be connected to the cloud) that they can reuse again and again.

I also think the vision we have for Bento Cam is quite different. Shoots & Leaves, as you said, has not been update since 2014, and feels like it never left the beta stage - without knowing anything about who made it, and why it is not still being developed.

Furthermore Bento Cam is free (Shoots & Leaves is not), and the basic features that are currently in our private beta version will always remain free.

If you are / have been a happy user of Shoots & Leaves (and even if you’re not), we would love for you to try out Bento Cam and give us your thoughts on how we can best meet your photo needs.

Best,

Co-founder, Bento
Have you got a pricing plan that accounts for penniless hobby bands? Freemium would be best of course, but not everyone is as fond of that model as I am.
@jasonology Hey, the free version allows for up to 5 tracks and MP3 uploads. You are welcome to delete tracks as you need to keep the count 5 or less. Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any questions
This is an idea that’s been floating around without a “killer app” implementation. This could be the new champion. There are many early-stage dementia and Alzheimer’s disease patients that could really use this to help with their daily items lists. I suffer from occasional absent-mindedness/distraction so I’m looking forward to using it myself!
@jasonology Thanks for your feedback! Hope you find Don't Leave It! helpful. I'm a forgetful person myself, and was sick of hanging up my backpack on the hook under the bar and thinking "I know I'm going to forget that..."

Even since I left my tablet in the airplane seat-back pocket a few years ago (and wasted $30 cab fare back to the airport and 45 mins at the lost and found counter), I've been kicking around this idea. Happy to have finally brought it to life, and I hope it saves some stress for our users :)
I tried using Safari on OSX and it’s all ugly with text on top of itself. You need a screenshot?
@jasonology What version of Safari do you use?
Under OSX Sierra, Safari 10.0.2 it's fine.
I'm working under mac too.
@jasonology Got it, thanx! Will check it out.
