Should I Build This App?

The more accurate question is: Should I rebuild this app?  I developed the concept shown in the image above a few years back and threw it up on the app store.  But I was a crappy coder back then, so I want to rebuild it from the ground up.  I also want to add my own artwork to it.  And I want to document the process on this site, sketching each step both for my own benefit as a developer and to shed light on the development process.  The project would be open source – I would throw the code up on a site like github for others to download and tweak to their heart’s content.  At the end of the process I would put it back on the app store for $0.99.  For those CS nerds out there you would of course be able to download the code and build it for yourself for free.

But before I do all of that, I want to know if there is any interest in this concept.  Do you want to see this app made?  If so, share this page on your social network of choice or leave me a note in the comment section below.

One last thing.  Here’s an incredibly boring demo video of the first version of this app (no wonder it only sold about 50 copies!):

  1. My vote is yes, please create it. I haven’t seen the original, but love the idea and am promoting the use of apps for fun practice outside the classroom. Looking forward to hearing more.
