After months of hard work, it felt great to open up the startup I cofounded (GuideMe) to the public last week. Feedback and usage has been pretty good so far, although we have high expectations and know we need to keep building, listening to users, and improving the product to make their local lives better.
GuideMe is your local To-Do List. It’s super easy to build your list of places you’d like to go, where you’ve been, and what you’ve loved.
Despite all the online tools that exist, we still primarily rely on friends and people we know to get great recommendations for restaurants, bars, shops, hotels, landmarks, and everything else. We’re working on scaling those recommendations from friends, making it easier to get them, save them, and share your own.
We’re striving to make it easy to build and manage your local To-Do list, and to provide people with a ton of value that will make it seem worthwhile to use GuideMe.
I’d love for the long-time readers of this blog to sign up, kick some tires, and pass along any feedback whether it’s good or bad.
