Introducing Appetite and updates from 2013
Just wanted to update you on my latest experiment. Since my journey at Hover, and Taptolearn, I have now joined the 3-person team at verbs.im
and prototyping some new ideas. I've always liked detecting patterns - be it patterns in names
as a kid, context on a webpage or from bigdata. So detecting apps from the image of a home screen in near real-time seemed challenging. Plus I got to work in C++ apart from just the weekends
( and erlang for Verbs) which is a great start to my new year.
detects apps on your iPhone's home screen automagically, and makes it easy to share by giving you a short url. Here's an example of what we detected from Ashton Kutcher's iPhone http://appetite.io/a/c282709a
Too bad we couldn't submit it to betali.st - apparently they only list startups never publicly mentioned before. Guess we were 24 hours too late. I'm stoked by the initial response of Appetite on Twitter since posting it on HN yesterday.
Here's what Matthew @Panzer, the editor of thenextweb had to say, when he stumbled on appetite to our delight
