Did I ever tell you about the time I created my own app? Here’s a good story to shown why you shouldn’t stop making things and, why not? You can make your own app.
This was around the time I was living in Barcelona and I used to take the Barcelona underground when I commuted to work. You won’t believe it, but I had to take three lines so I spent travelling more than one hour every day. It was far too much time. What a nightmare!
And because of that, I decided I’d better built my own iPhone Apple app as I needed to change some trains as quickly as possible.
On the first day of my travel with the app, I got to work at 7 am. My boss called me the day before because of a meeting that I had to attend with japan costumers that day at 8.00 am in the head office. Then I logged onto my app account to travel in the underground. It was perfect because I knew what was the best train’s carriage to sit in, in every station. Not only that, I knew which was the best door to sit near to get off one line and run to the other.

Can you imagine my surprise when I realized that I had reached the latest station and I had taken twenty minutes in all the travel? Funnily enough, the app worked very well this first time so I cut walking times between some train’s platforms.
After I got out of the latest underground station. The app told me what was the nearest lift of this station so I went up to the street. Can you imagine it? By 7.25 am I was in the office.
In the end, I had half hour before the meeting so I dashed out to buy some biscuits for the costumers and I came back to the office. When my boss knew what happened he was very happy. I was quite pleased with myself too.
Anyway, it turned out well in the end but believe me, you’ll have to find the time and the energy to do so!
