Salon spotlights Serial Reader

· 06/04/2019 · indie development ·

I was lucky enough to have Serial Reader noticed by Mary Elizabeth Williams, an author and staff writer at Salon, who gave me the chance to ramble a bit on the app and why I built it.

Be sure to check out the article and Mary Elizabeth's other writing on the site and elsewhere!

I enjoy looking to other apps that are trying to tackle the same big problem as Serial Reader - that is, breaking a "Big Task" into smaller pieces that are provided over longer time periods - for inspiration and ideas. Podcast and fitness apps are great examples, but hadn't thought about the meditation apps Mary Elizabeth references in her article. I'll have to take a dive into those!
