πŸ™…β€β™€οΈ Today's goal: Put this project out to pasture

I did want to say something here about this sad, sad project that really, was doomed to fail. I actually did finish it, it's currently sitting in test flight, and it works just fine, looks just fine.

But that's really the problem, it's just fine.

It doesn't move the needle.

I poured quite a few hours into this thing and again, nothing.

It's not all bad and depressing though. I did learn SwiftUI πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

But yeah, consider this the conclusion of this dreadfully short series πŸ—Ώ

Why was it doomed to fail? Why not continue?

There’s not really an audience for it.

If I think about all of the apps that do similar things, I’m overwhelmed, plus I wasn’t really invested in it to start with.

I never finished it and my life isn’t lacking in any way πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ so I probably made the right decision to move on quickly instead of trying to force myself to work on it

That makes sense. Do you think you'll do another update on your password vault? These series you make are really interesting to read about and follow!

I have been working on the iOS version with swiftUI, maybe I’ll do an awkward stream or something on the weekends when I’m working on it and write out a little something afterwards...
