What's the problem I'm trying to solve?
My idea for Noteo came from personal experience - when friends recommend new TV shows to watch, or books to read, I write them down in the notes section on my phone. Then, a few weeks later, I'd forget what it was (was it a TV show or a book?) and who had told me about it. I wanted to do something about it!
My vision is to create an app where you can recommend things to your friends and your friends can recommend things for you. Then, once you've watched that TV show or read that book, you can let them know whether you enjoyed it - and thank them for their great tip!
What you had to say
I put out a survey and got more than 100 responses - many of you also think this is a great idea. Here are some examples of what people said:
"I usually look them up when they are recommended and then forget what they are a couple of days later and either have to message my friend or don’t watch it "
"If there was an app where people shared recommendations and then could provide reviews, that might be a fun way to do it!
"Sometimes it is hard because if we’re in person I may not want to go on my phone to write it in my notes, or sometimes I will forget to write it down. Sometimes I forget that I’ve got recommendations saved on my notes! If it is something I am particularly interested in, it makes it easier as I am less likely to forget about it."
- I will use £500 of the money to launch the website
- I will use £6,000 of the money to launch a beta (pre-release) version of the app
- I will use £3,500 of the money to put towards the final version of the app once it has been tested on the market
