I'm about to embark on a personal app creation challenge. I want to make some large number of apps (20? 25?), as fast as I can.

Here's the first (3.5 days) - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=us.plurib.mchdraw

But I need more ideas!

Rules:
1. it can be dumb; preferably something you might use
2. point of the app expressed in 5 words or fewer
3. already exist >1 apps with "similar" functionality

All rules are meant to be interpreted loosely. I want to add some >10,000 downloads (or something) to #3 (the idea being that I want to compete somewhere where there could be existing demand), but I'm not picky. Quantity over quality.

Go!

My takeaways:
​Like a lot of changes in ASP.NET lately, a lot of things in "vNext" remind me of things I liked in classic ASP & PHP.  (All things old are new again.)

- "there’s no direct dependency on MsBuild to build/package a project."

​- "ASP.NET vNext allows a welcome no-compilation workflow where you can make changes to source code and see the changes reflect as soon as you refresh your HTTP content."

​- "The vNext project system also treats folders as a project—there’s no longer a file that holds references to each of the files in a project like your typical .csproj file, but rather a project is simply a folder and any file that is recognized is compiled."

​- "The ASP.NET Web Pages framework is also integrated into this combined MVC framework and uses the very same Razor View Engine implementation as MVC, so that the differences between MVC and standalone Web Pages go away. Web Pages is perhaps the most underused framework in ASP.NET"

​​- "ASP.NET vNext is a major change that is as big as the step was from the original, classic Active Server Pages to ASP.NET."
ASP.NET has been Microsoft’s hallmark product for more than a dozen years. In vNext, it’s getting more readily adaptable to the way users—especially mob...

I think web pages didn't make the cut for RC1 of ASP.NET 5. I wonder when they will add support.

Friends, I have now officially made a phone app, available on both iOS and Android.  "Date Calculator 3000" calculates dates like it's 1999.

- Apple:  http://itunes.com/apps/datecalculator3000
- Android:  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=us.plurib.datecalc2

Despite having made something that's occasionally useful (a happy side-effect), this project was just the first project I thought of to try the craft of making an app, and to see what it's like / get some experience with the technology (thanks, PhoneGap).

And of course, I'd appreciate any installs, +1's, N-star reviews, shares, etc.  (I mean the app speaks for itself, obviously!)
Do simple date calculations, in a simple date calculator app! Works just li...

Yes.  Spot on.  (Also, this is a great blog.)
Why Doesn't Creativity Matter in Tech Recruiting? A lot of buzz last week over the author of the excellent Homebrew package manager being asked to invert a binary tree in a Google interview. I've said it before, that organizational skills beat algorithmic wizardy in most cases, probably even at ...
