How I wrote FeedMe

Breastfeeding

A few days ago I released the first version of FeedMe, a small Android app I wrote over the last few weekends. I promised my wife to write it after our first daughter was born and we found ourselves keeping tracks of her feedings using notes that were all over the house. After a few nights that we woke up, the baby was crying, and we couldn’t find the notes anywhere around (had to go to the living room, kitchen etc) I’ve had it and decided to build this side project.

By the time I got to it, our daughter was already a few months old, and she slept through the night and there was no real need, but I promised my wife that for the second one – I’ll make sure to build it in time.

And I did!

Our second daughter was born a couple of days ago, only a few days after I released the app.

Needless to say that the app is free, and I intend to keep it so, and not only that: I plan to open source it and I’ll appreciate if other hackers will decide to contribute, add features, improve the code, or do whatever they want with it.

I will release the code together with other Bitbucket and GitHub projects, as soon as I fix the code a bit and make it presentable (I did some quick & dirty hacking in order to make it work cause I was short in time and I don’t have experience developing apps).

I’d love to get your feedback, but please don’t send feature-requests because I got plenty features & ideas I want to implement but I lack the time to do so…
