I'm pleased to announce that I have just released my first iPhone app: Level Me Up!
The idea for the app came to me while I was reading Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell. In the book he describes the 10,000 hour rule, which basically says that research has shown that it takes 10,000 hours of practice in any skill to become an expert in that skill.
The problem is 10,000 hours is a long time. It's easy to lose motivation somewhere along the line, as you're not seeing any progress. I wished there was a way to get constant feedback and motivation, much like you do when leveling up a character in an RPG.
Hence LevelMeUp! In the app you can list the skills you want to conquer, enter the hours you train over time, and watch your experience bar grow! You gain levels and titles as you grow closer and closer to that 10,000 hour expert level mark.
Anyway, check out the app if you're interested!
