Some of the ideas that I am working/worked on. Most of them did not make a mark, but I am proud of each and every product that I have worked on 😇.
If you love 🐦 Polls, you will love this 🤞
PollScout indexes the best Twitter Polls from all over the Twitter 🌏. I have been a huge fan of Twitter Polls and
when I was going through the Twitter Bookmarks, I realized that more than 80% of my bookmarked tweets were
Polls. These amazing polls are hidden in the long tail of Twitter timelines.
Just reply with @pollscout track #related-hashtag to the Poll, and it will automatically get indexes on the
Some interesting poll results
70% of 122k twitter users feel that their country should be run by entrepreneurs!
80% of the 25k twitter users feel that China is a malign force.
3. 55% of the 2.5k twitter users say Thank You to their children.
Viwr has different features like screen mirroring, location mocking, battery mocking, CPU analysis, memory analysis, battery analysis, network mocking etc features that help them to speed up the development as well as making sure that the app handles different scenarios really well.
For Android Testers
Viwr helps to create different analysis reports like this, which are one click sharable with developers/clients giving a clear picture about how the app is performing.
Conclusion: Failed 💔
Simplest screen sharing app for Android.
One click to start sharing your screen
Doesn’t need any development tools or USB cables for sharing the Android screen
Share screen using a link (Just like Google Drive/Dropbox). No plugins/Software/Password required for viewer. Compatible with all modern browsers
Completely safe! No special permissions are required.
This was a hardware product. The vision for the product was, to convert the most powerful computer in everyones’ pocket i.e. smart phones into a remote control for the TV.
We took this idea a little further, by converting phones into a game controller as well 🤩.
Conclusion: Failed 💔
AppSurfer was the biggest and most ambitious project I have worked on, which went on to become a real VC funded company.
We had build AppSurfer (I and 3 other co-founders) with the intention of bringing Android in the cloud. Got a lot of recognition and love from tech community.
Throughout the life of the product, we tried 4 different use-cases, none of which worked. Eventually every bit was built by Google and we decided to shut it down.
GroupUp was a reverse GroupOn for purchasing goods in a group. People create/join group for buying a product, and start sharing them across social network, so as to grow that group and get a GROUP DISCOUNT.
Why? (Pitch from the deck I had prepared then)
According to Google India, there were 35 million online shoppers in India in 2014 Q1 and is expected to cross 100 million mark by end of year 2016.
In India, people postpone their purchases for Diwali, Dussehra, New years expecting sales during that period.
They also contact friends, relatives from US during black friday sales.
E-commerce players like Flipkart, Amazon.in, Snapdeal are coming up with huge discount sales.
We are doing this, thinking What if we attach a bulk purchase to these discounts ?
Conclusion: Never Launched 💔
A live StackOverflow which can start with a chat, call, video call etc.
Main objective of the app is to provide instant help on problems using mobile chat system.
There are no anonymous users in the system.
Login should be using either Facebook, Google+.
Questions can be asked to relevant online people only. Once you complete the discussion, asker would give a hi5 as a gratitude and also which is the magnitude of the askees’ rank in the system. Hi5 indicates that the discussion was fruitful. 100% hi5s’ is the target of the system.
Conclusion : Never came out of beta 💔
When Fabric Beta was not around, Distribit was the system I had built to share beta / alpha APKs and ipas among registered users.
Auto updating the app as soon as it’s uploaded to Distribit.
Project Zero (2014-2015)
Conclusion: Failed 💔
This was the first IOT project that I had thought of. But it never came out from the Spec stage. Here is the spec if anyone still wants to read it :)
Golang is awesome for developing web apps. And people have created a bunch of awesome Web-Frameworks, Web helper libraries. If we consider the entire ecosystem of web apps in Golang everything except API documentation seems to be in place. So we have created the first API doc generator for Golang based web apps and calling it Yet another.
FieldMap function generator for https://github.com/mholt/binding
Autobindings is a simple extention to the amazing library Binding. So binding is a reflectionless data binding for Go’s net/http. For that developer has to write a FieldMap function which is used by this library to map the incoming JSON from the request to the struct fields.
